We Celebrate

Max & Linda


This year's Sr. King & Queen, who were unanimously chosen by the Peony Festival committee, is Max & Linda Gamble.  Their selection goes right along with the festival's theme "Blooming With Tradition."

The Gambles enjoy gardening and sharing the abundance that God gives them with others.  

Max has been on the Historical Museum Board, the Council on Aging building committee and currently serves on the Apple Festival Board.

They are certainly and asset to the Van Wert Community.  

Max and Linda have been married for 55 years, and are the parents of 7 children.  They attend Trinity Friends Church.
