Boak has served on Canfield City Council, the board of Canfield Historical Society and is very active in Rotary.
His warmth and generosity keeps children warm during the winter when he donates coats to kids in the area that are in need.
He is involved with the Food Pantry, Mission of Love, clothing drives, Palm Sunday Pancake breakfast and the Fly The Flag program.
A big passion of Boak’s since 2007 has been providing 4th of July fireworks for the city of Canfield. For several years, area residents have congregated to the fair grounds to enjoy a spectacular variety of fireworks. In 2014, he hired the Little River Band to perform. Boak says the coolest thing to see is the joy on everyone’s faces as the sky lights up and the band entertains.
Boak has made substantial donations to the War Vet Museum and feels immense pride when he drives by after dark and sees the building lit.
He also feels it is important to “pay it forward” and spread the work of God. Boak is a member of the Canfield Presbyterian Church where he donates Lilly plants for all congregational members to take home after Easter Sunday. The purpose of this is for the church member to give the plant to another person on Easter. Sam Boak is an exceptional son, husband, grandfather, friend and mentor.
