WETZEL — It’s a party with a purpose. The Wetzel Motorcycle Club began it’s annual party back in 1987 as a mostly private, and by today’s standards, small affair. For the 28th annual party, Wetzelland will be crowded with people spread over the 100 acres in northern Van Wert County. The party proceeds once again will be shared with various charities. According to Dan McPhail, Wetzel Motorcycle Club made donations totalling more than $50,000 after last year’s party.

Van Wert County YWCA sponsors trip to the Shipshewana area

Information submitted

 

With the weather being a perfect temperature in the 70s and very low humidity, what better way to spend the day than to take a trip! A group of 54 passengers did just that on July 17 on a motorcoach leaving from the Van Wert YWCA and traveling to the Shipshewana, Indiana, area.

Upon arriving in Shipshewana, a local guide joined the group and took them on a tour of local gardens that had been planted in quilt patterns. The design of these gardens started just a few years ago and has become a huge tourist attraction.
