Representative Ghanbari Honors Wood County’s Nonagenarians, Two Centenarians 

COLUMBUS — State Representative Haraz N. Ghanbari (R-Perrysburg) recognized 70 Wood County residents celebrating a birthday of 90 or older during a special dinner Monday in Bowling Green. 

“It was a tremendous honor to join these residents, as well as their family and friends, in recognizing this truly amazing milestone,” said Representative Ghanbari. “I was blessed to meet folks like Ms. Margaret Neifer who is 101 years old, and other Wood County residents like World War II Army and D-Day veteran Mr. Harry Swartz.”
