The city’s addressed these issues in the form of a hose being hooked up to to a neighboring house suppling water to the residents without.

Wapakoneta Middle School held an assembly for its students Wednesday to discuss the effect that bullying can have and how they can combat the problem by speaking up, and by performing acts of kindness for others.
The assembly was broken up into three sessions, one for each of the fifth, sixth and seventh grade classes.
Haehn Florist & Greenhouses is collecting donations for its “Adopt a Grandparent” program that focuses on pampering residents at three assisted living and rehabilitation facilities in Wapakoneta.
“There are people that live in these facilities that aren’t visited and aren’t called much and need extra happiness in their lives,” Dena Wireman, with Haehn Florist, said.
Wireman noted how many elderly residents are often left alone during the post-holiday season.
