Compiled by the WPD STAFF

First Friday is back tonight, collecting canned good donations for local food pantry Friends in Service Here from 5-8 p.m. in downtown Wabash.

Tonight’s festivities will also showcase the artistic talents of 23 ARC of Wabash County members, who will be hosting an art show at Borders and Beyond.

All works of art featured in the gallery were created by artists with disabilities, an effort organized by the ARC of Wabash County to help its members express themselves creatively.

Proceeds raised tonight will help purchase art supplies and frames for the artists, whose work will remain on display through the end of the month.

The Wabash County Historical Museum’s annual Christmas at the Museum family fun night returns tonight as well. The evening serves as the official unveiling of the museum’s Christmas decorations, a process which takes months to prepare.

“Each tree, wreath and piece of decor is beautifully decorated for the holidays, but also hold many hidden surprises for guests to explore,” said Mitch Figert, the museum’s executive director.

The decorations will remain on display through the end of the year. Patrons can even vote on their favorite tree or write letters to Santa, which the museum says Santa will “read and respond to.” The letters may be dropped off at the museum’s mailbox.
