Thanks to the vision and efforts of Wabash staff members Marilyn Smith, Steve Charles, Jim Amidon, and Beth Swift, the 2008 Big Bash include an NPR-like story telling session called Scarlet Yarns.

The Scarlet Yarns is an opportunity for Wabash men and their families to tell their favorite stories. When the reunion weekend was over, we had over 30 men tell their stories in over 10 hours of video. I have seen some of the stories – they are unbelievable. Our guys reminisce about Dean Norm Moore, Willis Johnson, Joe O’Rourke, Vic Powell, Ed Haenisch, the Crawfordsville Police Department…and other staples of a true Wabash education.

The Yarns are here to stay – a home run! I hope you’ll make plans during your next Big Bash to tell your favorite story…
