2001 to present
As one of the fastest growing counties in Ohio, the need for uniting the rural and urban areas into a common community became a concern. LWC came into existence as a way to help create our own unique identity.  Addressing the needs of constantly growing clientele requires that individuals be educated and encouraged to assume leadership roles.  LWC was established to challenge and enable individuals to fulfill these functions to guide their neighborhoods, businesses, organizations, and the county into the future.
