Saturday, September 18, 2010

GREENCASTLE -- The Putnam County Community Foundation has announced that only 30 seats remain for those interested in joining the "Silver Odyssey" Bus Tour and Breakfast on Oct. 2.

Enjoy breakfast from Almost Home, colorful fall foliage, and beautiful countryside while learning about the rich history of Putnam County and the impact of the Community Foundation during its first 25 years of service.

Buses are provided by Putnam County Rural Transit and will begin loading at 9:30 a.m. in front of the Inn at DePauw (formerly the Walden Inn). They will return by noon to the same location.

Rodger Winger, John Nees, June Brattain, and Darrel Wiatt will serve as tour guides, and Jinsie Bingham organized the tours.

The cost per person is $15 and includes a meal, a busload of fun, and the opportunity to win prizes.

Dress is casual.

"Jinsie Bingham, our bus tour coordinator, has done an outstanding job organizing the tours and making it a lot of fun," said Eric Wolfe, director of community development for the foundation. "Whether you are new to the community or have lived here all your life, you are guaranteed to learn something and be entertained."

The "Silver Odyssey" Bus Tour is part of the daylong celebration of the community foundation's 25th anniversary on Oct. 2. The Board of Directors of the community foundation and Therese Cunningham, State Farm Insurance, invite the public to attend.

Only 30 of the 220 seats are left. Those interested may register at the foundation office, located at 2 South Jackson St. in Greencastle. The $50 ticket price includes all of the day's events that will take place at The Inn at DePauw in Greencastle.
