Fort Wayne, Ind. – Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry today presented legendary Fort Wayne Komets broadcaster Bob Chase with a "Key to the Fort" award at a ceremony in the Mayor's office.
Family, friends, and representatives from the Fort Wayne Komets and WOWO Radio attended today's event.
The Key to the Fort goes to individuals who've made an extraordinary commitment to the community through a lifetime of stewardship and involvement.
The Key is a hand forged replica of the iron key that was at the Fort in the days of Anthony Wayne, circa 1790. The original key is at the History Center. The key, with its highly unusual tumbler structure, came to the History Center from an early 20th Century donation from the family of Mayor Franklin Randall, who was Fort Wayne's mayor during the Civil War.
"It is my privilege to recognize Bob Chase for all that he has done for our great City," said Mayor Henry. "Bob's professionalism, character, humility, and his love for his family and the Komets are all attributes that make him a unique and special man in our community."
