River Greenway Trail Extension Mtg.

Wells County Chamber of Commerce 211 Water Street, Bluffton

Over the course of the academic year, senior civil engineering students Brendan Downey, Julia McGuire, and Kenton Pardue have conducted a full-scope design of a proposed extension of the River Greenway trail to the Old Bluffton Cemetery. The extension includes a connection to the Interurban Trail, and then follows Water and Marion Streets until it crosses the Wabash Central Railroad. Past the railroad, an elevated boardwalk will provide an accessible route across the floodplain, where the trail reaches a proposed trailhead, and terminates at Hale Street and, ultimately, the Old Bluffton Cemetery. The design also includes two observation platforms along Marion Street overlooking the Wabash River and a kayak launch point on the Wabash River near the trailhead location. You are invited to their presentation on April 27th at 6p.m. at the Wells County Commerce and Visitors Center at 211 Water Street in Bluffton. Wells County welcomes projects that encourage the development and use of our current assets to the area. We are eager to hear this presentation and believe it will be of interest to you as well in your current roles!

Event Series The Addams Family

The Addams Family

Norwell High School 1100 E. US 24, Ossian

THE ADDAMS FAMILY, a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, features an original story and it’s every father’s nightmare: Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family–a man her parents have never met. And if that wasn’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before–keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents. THE ADDAMS FAMILY School Edition has been adapted from the original Off-Broadway Production. The School Edition has been carefully edited, with additional director’s notes throughout, to make the show more producible for high school groups.
