BATH/RICHFIELD — Richfield resident Mike Pantaleano and Bath resident Mike Marks were both honored by their Kiwanis Club for community service beyond expectations.

On April 24, the past Ohio Kiwanis district governor awarded two Bath-Richfield Kiwanians with Walter Zeller Fellowship Awards, named after the founder of the Kiwanis International Foundation.

In their names, their Kiwanis Club donated $2,500 toward the Kiwanis International Eliminate Project to rid the world of maternal neonatal tetanus, which still runs rampant in 28 countries, according to club officials, who added this gift will save or protect almost 1,400 mothers and their future babies in Africa, India and China.
