The need
The Wingate Hotel is an anchor for the center of the downtown community. Being attached to the Veterans Memorial Civic and Convention Center, the hotel helps with the development of the arts along with business, family and community events and activities.

The work
Working with the VMCCC and supporting the VMCCC Foundation helps with the growth of the arts and downtown community. It gathers people of all ages from the surrounding counties to experience new and exciting adventures.

The crew
The networking in this community is phenomenal, from small business to large corporations. Everyone is striving to develop and enhance each work place through locally and global contacts. Being active on Downtown Lima board and neighborhood committees helps to engage the hotel, staff and visitors with Lima/Allen County.

The reward
The reward personally is coming to work each day and enjoying the people you work with and for! Getting to be involved with the community other than just work-related, but personal activities, and learning about the rich history of this community. The best reward is giving back to the community and not expecting anything in return! It’s a feeling that only you can control!
