Sign up for Salamonie's Senior Fall Fest, Sept. 12-15

From the Indiana Department of Natural Resources:

Salamonie Lake's ninth-annual Senior Fall Fest, Sept. 12-15, will offer Hoosiers over age 50 hands-on learning opportunities on a variety of old-fashioned subject matters, from basket weaving to making apple cider.

The event is located at Lost Bridge West State Recreation Area at Salamonie Lake on State Route 105 in Huntington County.

This year's Senior Fall Fest will focus on history. Event programming includes old-fashioned games, making sauerkraut, basket weaving, native plant remedies, a show-and-tell session for items from the past, cider making, Dutch oven recipes, food and music.

A pass for the week's events and programs costs $2. The basket weaving class costs an additional $5 to cover supplies.

Senior Fall Fest kicks off at 12:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 12, at the interpretive center with a carry-in meal and guest speaker. Diners should bring their own tableware and a $1 donation for the main dish.

Early registration is encouraged to help organizers plan the event. For more information about the event, or to register, call (260) 468-2127.

There is a $5-per-vehicle entrance fee ($7 for out-of-state vehicles) to enter the Lost Bridge West Recreation Area.
