The Rotary Club of Wapakoneta invited Home Savings Bank President, Jim West, to speak at their final meeting of the rotary year yesterday.
After eating lunch at the Rotary Club Gazebo located in Harmon Park, West expected to give a speech to rotary members about his business and how it came to be what it is today.
Unbeknownst to him, West was in attendance for another reason.
According to this year’s Rotary President, Josh Little, the club gives out an award every year to a member of the community who is a non-Rotarian, but still exemplifies the mission of service above self. This award is the Vocational Service Award.
