Wabash speaker series celebrates the Protestant Reformation
By Emma Rausch
 
The Wabash Ministerial Association is hosting a month-long speaker series starting Sunday, Oct. 1, to celebrate 500 years and counting since the Protestant Reformation.
 
Hosted at the Honeywell Center on Sunday afternoons throughout October, the speakers will discuss the reformation’s effects on the modern world, the Rev. Jonathan Cornell, of Wabash Presbyterian Church, told The Paper of Wabash County.
 
“I think cultural and religious and societal effects of the reformation, not just from a church standpoint but the ways that it impacted society, merits a good, long exploration,” Cornell said, “and what we’re hoping is that appointing it from a number of different angles that we will really do a good job of helping people that might be interested in the history, might be interested in the kind of turning point moments in history, get a full picture of what it was, why it happened and why it’s still important today or how it has impacted the world today.”

They’re creepy and they’re kooky and they’re coming to the Wabash for three days of performances starting Friday, Sept. 22.

Wabash Area Community Theater (WACT) presents “The Addams Family,” a comedic musical filled romance, dark humor and a cast of local actors and actresses.

The Addams family, originally one-panel gag cartoons that debuted in the 1930s before being adapted into a television show and several movies, is a satirical inversion of the ideal 20th-century American family: wealthy, yet unconventionally captivated by all things macabre, seemingly unaware of their abnormal livelihood.

A new display has opened in the Wabash County Historical Museum’s Parkview Wabash Education Center.

The Big Blue Blocks exhibit opened on Tuesday, Sept. 12.

The exhibit features larger, foam blocks, similar to children’s Tinker Toys. It allows the youngsters to build different structures of all sizes by linking the blocks together via their holes over different shapes and sizes.

The blocks combine all the benefits of block play on a larger-than-life-size scale that encourage kids to play together in groups and have more fun. Children can enjoy a variety of play patterns including construction, pretend play, role-playing and inventing their own games. The blocks are meant to inspire children to design their own inventions, environments and activities, according to officials.

ROANN – A “diamond in the rough” that has been kept in a Roann garage for 25 years is now on permanent display at the Town Hall.

In 1992, Roann resident Jim Huffman spent the first six months of his retirement creating a replica of the Roann Covered Bridge. Made out of old pine, the model bridge, which stands about 2 1/2-feet tall and about 5-feet long, was donated to the town about two months ago.

It originally sat atop a counter until a table was built by J&K Woodworking in North Manchester.
