Learn about making rope at Salamonie senior lunch, March 7

Indiana DNR Release:

Individuals 50 or older are invited to meet Lowell Tillman and learn about making rope at the March 7 senior lunch at the Salamonie Interpretive Center.

The program kicks off with the meal at 12:30 p.m. The meat dish will be provided by Upper Wabash Interpretive Services (UWIS). Seniors should bring a dish to pass, provide their own table service and a $1 donation to help defray the cost of the meat dish.

Tillman has used his rope making program with Boy Scouts, churches and library groups. He will ask audience members to participate in the rope making process.

To help organizers determine the correct amount of meat to request, those interested should register by calling UWIS at (260) 468-2127 or by visiting the interpretive center at 3691 S. New Holland Road, Andrews, IN 46702.

The interpretive center and Otter Run Tradin’ Post is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. This barrier-free building features exhibits, floor-to-ceiling windows in the wildlife viewing area, and staff to answer your questions. The center is located in Lost Bridge West Recreation Area on Highway 105 in western Huntington County.
