CLEARCREEK TWP OF WARREN COUNTY, OH -- On Monday the Clearcreek Township Board of Trustees honored resident Bill Denlinger with a special proclamation. Not only was the board honoring Mr. Denlinger for turning 100, but the proclamation recognized several amazing achievements the centenarian has accomplished over those 100 years.

The proclamation, which is signed by all three trustees Jason Gabbard, Steve Muterspaw and Ed Wade, was read by township administrator Matt Clark. After the reading, Mr. Denlinger spoke.

"I'll add one ... coming through 100 years... it's been fun...hard work..., but I made it. But, I think I'm not going to try to make it for another 100 years," he smiled adding that he appreciated the board for recognizing him.
