Politicians do fudge

An assortment of fudge donated by Amish Acres in Nappanee was served by U.S. Sen. Dick lugar Thursday when he hosted the Thursday Club Luncheon for members of the U.S. Senate. The Senior Senator from Indiana has held the seat longer than any other Hoosier and some say, I am included, served the state better than any other. The Event highlighted Hoosier Hospitality with food and gifts donated by restaurants and businesses in Indiana. Amish Acres 80-acres historic farm has been named Indiana's number one tourist attraction by Travel Trade magazine.

The lunch hosted by Lugar alson included breaded tenderloin sandwiches from Graw Bone Food and Fuel as the main entree.
The Thursday Club Lunch includes 50 members and began as a Wednesday Club with a small group of senators meeting in their personal offices for lunch. Senators now rotate hosting duties of the weekly lunches, sharing food and gifts that represent their home states.

Sending fudge to the Senator reminded me of the visit from former Senator Birch Bayh, father of current Senator Evan Bayh who was sixteen then, to help celebrate Nappanee's Centennial in 1974. I gave him a ring of boloney from the meat market at Amish Acres. I remember the symbolism was lost then, too.
