North Branch Nursery owner Tom Oberhouse and wife Laura Landry Meyer will showcase their renovated historic home in Pemberville for a fundraiser.

It seems there was a strong demand from the local community that wanted to see the finished work. Now, they will get the chance, from 2-5 p.m. on October 23.

The Lake Township Ageless Wonders will get together at the Lake Township Hall for a potluck lunch Oct. 13.

The noon gathering will be a “homecoming” of sorts for the group, comprised of seniors from the Lake Township and surrounding area.

Agency has new administrator


David Wigent, of Bryan, has been selected by the Wood County Commissioners to fill the administrator vacancy at the Wood County Department of Job and Family Services, effective Oct. 10.

Wigent has served as the assistant administrator at the agency since June 2005. He replaces Paulette Stephens who is retiring at the end of October.

Northwood Mayor Mark Stoner said he will make a recommendation to the Safety Committee later this month on his proposed Advanced Life Support (ALS) system in the volunteer fire department.

Stoner had proposed the plan in June, but some on council balked, saying it was too expensive to implement. The plan would guarantee that a paramedic would respond to ALS calls. Currently, there is no such guarantee.

The Kreager family of Oak Harbor is celebrating 180 years of marriage without a divorce. The achievement is noteworthy not only because 50 percent of all marriages end in divorce, but also because all five couples married their high school sweethearts.
 
The five couples, all Oak Harbor graduates, are Don and Bonnie, who will celebrate their 60th anniversary on October 26; son Randy and his wife Nancy (Gyde) (36 years); son Jeff and his wife Deb (Harder) (36 years); son John and his wife Laurie (Krasniewski) (24 years); and daughter Mary and her husband Dave Buehler (24 years).
 
All four children and their parents married young. Don was 20; Bonnie, 18; Randy, 21; Jeff, 19; John, 23, and Mary, 22. The achievement is more remarkable because 60 percent of marriages between couples under age 25 end in divorce.
