Hats off to Skip Claypool, Terry Palermo, 
and Bob Piecenski.   

Caretakers at University Hospitals Geauga Medical Center did not know why firetrucks from five different cities were parked outside the main entrance to the hospital last Thursday morning.

A few nurses trickled outside to take pictures of the large U.S. flag suspended in the air between the ladders of two trucks.

The grand display was part of a lunch delivery the Chesterland Rotary Club provided — 300 pizzas to feed the entire hospital staff.

With a police escort, rotary club President Walter “Skip” Claypool led a procession of club members who honked and yelled “Thank you!” from their cars to the cheering hospital staff.

Claypool (affectionately known as Bada Bob) drove to the front door of UH to make the drop off, his car sporting a Bada Bing Pizza delivery sign.
