A chili dinner on Saturday will benefit Luckey Hospital Museum and help it pay for repairs caused by a January water leak. Dinner is served from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the the Wolf Lake Community Building in Wolf Lake Park. The all-you-can-eat tickets are $6 per person.
The menu is chili, peanut butter sandwiches, cake and beverages. Take-out orders will also be available.
The non-profit museum, at U.S. 33 and State Road 109 in Wolf Lake, has extensive water damage from broken pipes found Jan. 9. Water soaked the ceilings in the fireplace room and hallway, wicked into the walls and ruined the furnace in the basement. Remarkably, no artifacts were lost, including the collection of nurses’ caps and uniforms in the next room. Insurance covered the cleanup and some repairs, but donations will be accepted to pay for repairs not covered by the policy. Donations may be sent to the museum at P.O. Box 143, Wolf Lake, IN 46796.
Volunteers are needed to help with painting and other tasks to ready the museum for the coming tourism season. Call 260-635-2490 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to give your time and talent.
