The Washington Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to welcome Don Grahl (The Creek Grill & Sports Bar) and Scott Mentz (Mentz Foundations) to the Board of Directors. They were chosen through a membership-wide ballot that included four nominees, selected by a committee of past board chairs.
“We are excited to add Don and Scott to our Board! Both have a built great businesses in our community and have been wonderful supporters of our Chamber. We are thrilled they have volunteered to serve our community in this capacity,” said Chamber President, Jennifer Giesike. Board members typically serve two, 3-year terms on the board, although if selected by fellow directors to the Executive Board, additional years can be served. Grahl and Mentz replace Dan Cassette (Cassette Electric) and Craig Mueller (Imo’s Pizza, Sugarfire Smokehouse), whose terms ended on December 31, 2021.
Don Grahl moved to Washington nearly 20 years ago and considers it, without a doubt, the best decision he and his wife, Donna, ever made. The move here has served their family exceptionally well, both personally and professionally. Donna works at St. Francis Borgia High School, and together they own and operate The Creek Grill and Sports Bar, which just celebrated its 12th anniversary serving this community. Don and Donna have three adult children, including two that reside in town and work in the area. Don has one granddaughter and another on the way.
Don would consider it an honor to serve on the Washington Area Chamber Board of Directors. It would allow him to give back to this great city a fraction of what he feels it has given him and his family.
Scott Mentz owns and operates Mentz Foundations, Inc., a small business specializing in concrete constructions. He has been a leader in that field for over 35 years. Scott is a hardworking, detail-oriented individual with strong managerial and organization skills.
Scott is currently a Director at Heritage Community Bank. He previously served nine years on the Washington Town & Country Fair Board and was President of the Franklin County Construction Industrial Council for three years.
Scott and his wife, Lisa, have two adult daughters, Stephanie and Taylor. He loves spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren, and enjoys coaching youth sports, playing golf, farming, and traveling.
Grahl and Mentz will join 14 others on the 2022 Board of Directors.
