On September 2nd, The Waynedale News celebrated its 90th year in print! This historic landmark for the newspaper did not come easy. Throughout the years, myself and many Publishers before me, made decisions and sacrifices to continue the newspaper’s legacy.

Recently the chance to do just that came to us in the form of a new employee.
“Take what you need. Share what you can.” A mantra from Forward Indiana, a local non-profit organization, has been the driving force in the creation of food cabinets throughout Fort Wayne. It has even inspired Essex Furukawa Magnet Wire to add two of its own free food cabinets right outside its facility entrance on Phenie Street.

For years now I’ve made it a point to attend the annual Maumee Valley Antique Steam & Gas Association Show held East of New Haven on the third weekend of August. This year’s quilt show drew entries from Allen County and neighboring states.

Some of the quilts were hand pieced, embroidered, and appliqued, and others were created and quilted entirely by machine. No matter what techniques were used, they all reflected the creativity and passion of their makers.

The Fort Wayne Pit Bull Coalition has our upcoming “Spayghetti and No Balls” event on October 1st, 2022. We’re a 501c3 organization who rescues pit bull type breeds working to rehabilitate, foster, and eventually adopt these breeds out. One of the main aspects of our missions is to our spay and neuter program which includes not only spaying/neutering all dogs that come to us (we’ve received 20 puppies in the last month) but we also have a community outreach program. This program allows us to assist anyone in the community with spaying/neutering their pet, should they have a financial hardship and are not able to get it done on their own.
