Warren Hollertz, a local pastor with over 50 years invested in the area, is set to soon leave the area for a retirement community in Allison Park located outside of Pittsburgh to the north.
A mainstay and community leader throughout his half-century tenure in the area, Hollertz enjoyed an hour-long meeting Monday morning at Joey's Bakery alongside fellow volunteers who keep the Ridgway Meals on Wheels program turning through the years. The popular pastor was not at a loss for words when describing his love for the program, volunteerism, and the area itself.
