A third-grader at Wapakoneta Elementary School took it upon herself to help students at her school make new friends.
A couple weeks ago, 9-year-old Becca Poynter was reading the Weekly Reader, an educational classroom magazine designed for children. She read about a “buddy bench” — a place where children can sit during recess that lets other kids know that they are looking for someone to play with.
Poynter thought this was a great idea and that there should be a buddy bench at her school.
Relay For Life made a $6,000 donation to the American Cancer Society Auglaize County on Thursday.
Including today’s funds and income from bingo, the Relay team has donated $19,629 to the ACS.
Last week the Auglaize County Health Department met with the district advisory council for the annual 2013 report.
Emergency Response Coordinator Don Jump and Director of Environmental Health Curt Anderson presented their assessments to the council regarding changes and upcoming events for the health department.
Jump explained he has been in the position for three years, and his past work with the Wapakoneta Fire Department gave him a great background for his current position.
