Kokomo Opalescent Glass at Salamonie Lake senior lunch, June 4

From the Indiana Department of Natural Resources:

People age 50 or older are invited to the Salamonie Interpretive Center to learn about the historic Kokomo Opalescent Glass Company on June 4.

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

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

Cindy Locke, retail manager of The Op Shop, Retail Division of Kokomo Opalescent Glass, will talk about the company’s beginnings and explain how the glass is made.

The interpretive center and gift shop’s hours are 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 questions.

The center is in Lost Bridge West Recreation Area, Highway 105, in western Huntington County. There is no fee to enter the property at this time.
