20141103_131110[1]November 3, 2014: Guest speaker at Austintown Rotary on November 3 was Doug Wack, local businessman who spent ten years in China.

A West Branch native, Dave was lured to China by a job, then the desire to learn the Chinese language, and eventually marriage. He started several companies that branched from each other, and is now involved with an LED company in Canfield.

Wack gave some lessons on Chinese culinary favorites, which vary by region and taste experiences.
