Interesting items from the Forks of the Wabash

Posted: Friday, December 22, 2017

The Forks of the Wabash Museum, 3011 W. Park Drive, had another great year hosting 3,128 students and adults during the spring and fall tour seasons. Schools came from Boone, Huntington, Kosciusko, Grant, Wabash, Allen, Wells, Whitley and DeKalb Counties.

The museum was also blessed with 1,604 volunteer hours given just by interpreters and guides through the spring and fall. These hours do not reflect the many hours of volunteer service given by the Monday Crew – a group of individuals who come and work on maintenance, bridge building and countless other projects throughout the year. Also giving many hours are the members of the Huntington County Master Gardeners who begin in early spring and work weekly through to late fall keeping the many gardens blooming for everyone’s enjoyment.

We are thankful for the individuals and organizations who give so generously to make the Forks of the Wabash a place of enjoyment for everyone.

In 2018, we look forward to seeing how we can bring more people to the Forks for events and to enjoy the trails, picnic facilities and river. We will be sponsoring and participating in a number of events throughout the coming year and we hope that people who have never had the opportunity to visit will do so and that those who have come in the past, will come again to see how things are progressing.

Finally, we want to honor the memory of Kim Noffsinger, Richardville Room Manager. Kim passed away on Saturday, December 16. Kim had a sweet spirit and was loved by her co-workers and friends. We will miss her.
