Join us for an evening of at Fort Wayne’s only Craft Distillery. Founded in April 2016, Three Rivers Distilling Co. was northeast Indiana's first craft distillery since Prohibition, producing a full lineup of grain-to-bottle products made in Fort Wayne. Ingredients sourced, such as wheat and corn, grow within 100 miles of the distillery. The distillery produces bourbon, rye whiskey, vodka, coffee liqueur, gin, rum, and 122-proof corn whiskey – named in honor of the men and women in the 122nd Fighter Wing based here in Fort Wayne– in liquor stores all over the city. We will be in the tasting lounge overlooking the distilling area. We will have a presentation on the lessons learned while bringing this company from concept to community asset. They promise to share the good and the bad making this a unique opportunity to learn about the risks and mitigations of setting up a small business in Northeast Indiana. The evening will also include a tour of the facility and a cash bar for those who wish to sample their wares.

September 25, 2019 event - ACRES mission of permanently protecting local land, what that means to the communities we serve and how forever is accomplished
I’ll share with the group ACRES mission of permanently protecting local land, what that means to the communities we serve and how forever is accomplished.
Heather wants to know why you protect land. From donor cultivation to writing grants, she listens to your dreams and goals for investing in this work. She pays careful attention, because her job is to connect you to possibilities to realize your personal aspirations with ACRES Land Trust.
“From a very young age, I was instinctively drawn to trees. Even in the dead of winter, I could be found high up in a tree, book in hand, taking in a bird’s-eye-view of the natural world. I spent most of my childhood with my feet firmly planted in the canopy and I continue to find solace in natural settings.”
Her fondest memory is of walking trails with her daughter, then a toddler, listening to leaves rustling in the wind and imagining the secrets the trees were sharing of everything they had seen throughout their decades, sometimes centuries, of existence: Settlement, storms, development and all the creatures who lived among and enjoyed the company of trees, themselves included.
Heather’s early work experience in customer service opened a door into the world of philanthropy and continues to provide the foundation for her passion for working with members and donors. Her position with ACRES is the perfect marriage of her personal core values of preserving natural areas and her experience as a professional fundraiser.
“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.” – John Muir
