The Salvation Army’s Indiana Service Extension is seeking a representative for the Wabash area. The representative will assist families in need of the organization’s services. He or she will help to decide which families will receive assistance and what kind of assistance is needed. The extension’s northern liaison, Major Gerald Smelser, hopes to have the volunteer position filled by the end of October.

“It’s not a difficult thing, and they can do it on their own schedule,” said Smelser.

For the youngest students in Wabash County, college is no longer simply something they imagine—it is a place they have visited and seen for themselves. On Sept. 27, every kindergarten through third grader in Wabash County visited Manchester University for a day full of activities and fun. The community celebrated students’ dreams for the future at the “Walk Into My Future” event. 

The event and Promise initiative were successful thanks in large part to the efforts of presenting sponsor, Beauchamp McSpadden.

The Wabash County Animal Shelter is making some changes, adding new services, while reinstating others that were not offered for a period of time.

The shelter has adopted a new vaccination and testing policy, through which each animal that arrives at the shelter is tested for likely diseases. Cats are tested for Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), while dogs are tested for heartworm. Cats and dogs receive their respective vaccinations along with a one-year rabies vaccine, which both animals receive.
