WARSAW — Long-time Warsaw Rotary Club member, Bob Gast — who helped establish the local mobile meals program nearly 50 years ago — is still helping out.
Gast recently delivered Mobile Meals along with fellow Rotarian John R Hall.
He turned 100 in 2022 and continues to attend weekly meetings of the club and participate in projects.
In the early 1970’s he and his late wife, Marge, were instrumental in the development of Mobile Meals in Warsaw and the surrounding area through Kosciusko Senior Services.
Bob is a lifelong resident of Warsaw and previous owner of Gast Fuel and Services, Inc. before retirement.
Gast is a World War II veteran and Purple Heart recipient.
He has served on the Warsaw City Council and on many other capacities in the community including The Salvation Army and Warsaw Evangelical Presbyterian Church.
“Bob Gast is a great representative of the motto of Rotary International, “Service Above Self”, said John Hall as they were getting ready to deliver meals.
Bob just smiled and said, “I like to do my part in helping others.”
