McKinley Thankful for Wheeling
The sound of hockey pucks striking the ice rink boards at WesBanco Arena was just one of the reminders of the great amenities Wheeling offers, U.S. Rep. David B. McKinley observed while speaking there Tuesday.
McKinley was the guest speaker at a joint service clubs luncheon at the arena, with members of the Wheeling Kiwanis, Lions, Rotary and Civitan clubs and guests in attendance.
Keeping with a Thanksgiving theme, McKinley noted how he brought fellow Republican Congressman Scott Tipton from Colorado to Wheeling and showed him what makes the Friendly City a great place to live. McKinley touted the Wheeling Nailers and Roughriders, the arena, the city’s waterfront and festivals, public parks and Winter Festival of Lights. He bragged about the city’s rich history, its wealth of Victorian-era architecture, the Wheeling Symphony, the Suspension Bridge and the diverse culture of people that make Wheeling a gem among cities.
