Susie Veerkamp, Team Schwinn hostess and Martha Stewart of Shelbyville, festive red balloons in hand, welcomed guests to this year’s Valentine’s Day celebration at The Helbing.

Dear readers,

A big thanks to all of you loyal readers who made Team Schwinn’s first annual Valentine’s Day party at “The Helbing” a success. Your pioneer ancestors would have been proud of you for not letting a little cold weather spoil the celebration.
