If you want to get a good workout and do something meaningful at the same time, try heading to East Wheeling Saturday morning.  The Blue Church is looking looking for a few good volunteers to help start the first round of cleaning and organizing inside the church.  There will be tasks inside and out, so dress appropriately.

The Wheeling Gardening Symposium

Saturday 7:45 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

As we start to see the first hints of color in our landscape and the weather is warming up, is there a better place to hang out then Oglebay Resort these days?

The Wheeling Gardening Symposium brings together people from all walks of life to meet and share a common mission, making our community more healthy and beautiful. It offers gardening enthusiasts a series of dynamic workshops presented by nationally recognized gardening experts and includes an opportunity to network and share expertise with gardening advocates from throughout the region.

Presented by The Ohio County Master Gardeners and the West Virginia University Extension Service.



Harmony House “Hope for Spring” Fling

Saturday 6 p.m. – 11 p.m.

After spending the day gardening in Oglebay, hike over to Camp Russell to have fun and support a great cause.  Have fun, have a drink, and try your luck on a gift basket raffle or 50/50, capping the night with a release of “Hope Soars” balloons to honor the bravery of the children who attended Harmony House the previous year.

Wheeling Nailers vs. Toledo Walleye

Wednesday 7 p.m.

Ok, we know Wednesday is not the weekend, but how else can we get the word out for this important matchup?  We don’t have the “Weelunk Weekdayer” yet! C’mon Wheeling! It’s game three of the first round of the playoffs, and they fought hard to make it this far.  Let’s support our Nailers.



We encourage anyone with an event — whether it’s a steak-fry or a gala —  to submit the event to our Weelunk calendar here: calendar.
