Rep. Harris presented a Certificate of Recognition to Christine Guth in honor of her retirement as an employee of Wheeling Township. Christine was retiring after 13 years of dedicated service to the township and its citizens. She was the Assistant Director of Senior and Disability Services. Working with the Meals on Wheels program for seniors and the Make-A-Difference Fun Fair for children with disabilities were just part of her many functions.
