The Wells County Bicentennial Committee is sponsoring a Bicentennial Gala at Sassafras on Main on Friday, December 9 from 6:30-11:00 pm. The gala will be a fun way to celebrate Indiana’s 200th birthday in style with a buffet dinner, music, dancing, decades-themed décor, photo booth, and decorations highlighting Indiana over the last 200 years.

Attendees are encouraged to come dressed in costumes or fancy attire from any decade in the last 200 years. Committee members Emily Marshall, Danielle Archbold, and Lana Smith of the Wells County Public Library are pictured on the porch of Sassafras wearing a few costume ideas from the 1920s, but since the event covers the last 200 years that Indiana has been a state, the possibilities are endless.


Cocktails and appetizers start at 6:30 pm, dinner starts at 7 pm, and music/dancing starts at 8 pm. Buffet dinner provided by Sassafras will include roast beef, herb-roasted chicken, mashed potatoes & gravy, southern-style green beans, corn casserole, salad, rolls, bread pudding, and more. Cash bar will be available throughout the evening.

Cost for dinner and to get in for the evening costs $30 per person or $50 per couple. Tickets must be purchased in advance by December 3rd at either Sassafras, the Chamber of Commerce, or the Wells County Public Library.
