Hundreds Attend NWWSD’s Open House

 BOWLING GREEN, Ohio – Hundreds of customers from throughout Wood County attended the Northwestern Water & Sewer District’s (NWWSD) Annual Meeting & Open House this past Sunday, May 3, 20105.

Attendees heard an update about the state budget from Ohio Rep. Tim Brown (R-District 3), and Lake Erie federal legislation from Andrew Lorenz, a representative from U.S. Rep. Bob Latta’s (R-District 5) office.

“It was an honor to welcome our legislators and learn more about the hard work they’re doing to keep Wood County a great place to live,” said Jerry Greiner, president.  “And the response from our customers was tremendous.  Each year, this event seems to grow in size and scope.”

 Over 250 in attendance also enjoyed a free barbeque lunch, fruit slushes from Mr. Melon, inflatables, fishing derby, operations challenge, caricature drawings, and a large military equipment exhibit from the collections of county residents John Cheney and Tom Price.

Photos and post-event updates are available on both Facebook and Twitter.  General company information is available at www.nwwsd.org.
