A bittersweet reception and dinner was given on June 23, celebrating the retirement on June 30, for Dr. Jeung W. Ahn of New Paris. It was sponsored by the New Paris Chamber of Commerce and held at Southern Comfort Inn in the village with 50 persons attending. Dr. Ahn has faithfully served our community for 36 years.
Proclamations were read from Ohio Governor Kasich, the Ohio Senate, the Ohio House of Representatives, area Congressman, Rob Portman, and U.S Speaker of the House, the honorable John Boehner. Craig Kinyon, President of Reid Hospital, spoke of Dr. Ahn’s work ethic and dedication to his many patients and to Reid Hospital. Several of Ahn’s colleagues were in attendance.
The village mayor, Rick VanWinkle, and council proclaimed June 23-30, 2015 as Dr. Ahn week. A memory book of letters and cards were presented to him along with the proclamations.
Dr. Ahn, and his wife Keum, built their home and raised two daughters in New Paris, and both became physicians. He intends to stay here after retirement.
Sincere thanks to Linda Ray and her committee for honoring our beloved physician.
