Fort Wayne Fringe (a preview)

Did you get to Winterval this past weekend? We missed most of it but, luckily, made it to the sneak preview of the upcoming Fort Wayne Fringe. The what?

The Fort Wayne Fringe is a local arts festival happening this week at the new Wunderkammer Company on Fairfield (more commonly known as the old Casa restaurant). This space will showcase 10 “on the edge” performers over four days and feature everything from music, to theater, dance , fire performers and more. We had the pleasure of experiencing a small sample of these performers during the “sneak peak” and we can definitely say that this is an event you don’t want to miss.

To get more information about the performers and schedule, visit Fwfringe.org, pick up a Whatzup or stop into Wunderkammer Company. Tickets are avail

able ($5 per show) at the Downtown Deli, Wunderkammer Company and Fwfringe.org. See you there!

Featured Interview

Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society – Kelly Lynch

Kelly Lynch,

Have you ever heard of Steam Locomotive No. 765?  Chances are that you’ll be hearing a lot about it in the near future.

Thanks to a group of residents, in 1979, No. 765 was saved from rust and deterioration, restored and brought back to life. The story of the Fort Wayne Railraod Historical Society and this local treasure is best told by our guest, Kelly Lynch.

David and Kelly sit down to talk about the locomotive, the organization and how No. 765 just might be the next biggest thing to happen to downtown Fort Wayne.

Worth Checking Out

ACRES Land Trust

Since 1960, ACRES Land Trust has been dedicated to acquiring and preserving some of our most precious natural areas throughout Northeast Indiana, Northwest Ohio and Southern Michigan. To date, ACRES has acquired more than 5,000 acres of natural lands and hopes to reach 7,500 by 2017.

We chose to feature ACRES this week because, although it’s cold outside and we may want to do nothing other than stay curled in our homes where it’s warm, the need to protect our natural lands, waterways, plant and animal life continues year-round.

ACRES Land Trust has a fantastic website with tons of information about its preserves, events, publications, membership and involvement opportunities. Click here to go to The ACRES Quarterly Neswletter. We hope to see you at one of the upcoming events. Mmmmmmm, maple syrup.
