Adams County Regional Water District would like to announce the retirement of Mr. Wendell Barnes from the Board of Trustees. Mr. Barnes has served nearly 24 years on the board. He has served in many capacities and on several committees. Mr. Barnes served several years as board president and vice-president. He brought sincerity and ingenuity to his many positions on the board. Being a project engineer for ODOT for 40 years gave him a lot of insight to the business practices of the District. Mr. Barnes was quite the sportsman in his younger days playing football, basketball, and baseball. He was an outstanding outfielder and had gotten an invite to try out with the Saint Louis Cardinals. Mr. Barnes instead chose to serve his country and join the United States Air Corp. Mr. Barnes served as a wing gunner on a B-17 bomber during World War II. At the ripe old age of about 21, Mr. Barnes’ crew flew two missions on D-Day. We at ACRWD salute him for his service. We always appreciated his wit and his love for the Ohio State Buckeyes. We also want to thank him for his dedicated service to ACRWD employees and customers alike. He will be sorely missed at our meetings.

L-R Tony Staggs, President and Luke Rhonemus, Trustee Elect
