LincWay up and running


DALTON  Friendships, family bonding and a greater sense of community are all being fostered and promoted throughout several businesses all under one roof just off of the Lincoln Way highway.

Work continues on the 30,000-square-foot Wayne County Children’s S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) Playlab, the anchor of the multi-use building that people can see from U.S. 30 and have watched with anticipation as it takes shape just west of Dutch Kitchen. Donations are still welcome as the Playlab works toward opening its doors. Meanwhile, much activity has been going on in the spaces surrounding the Playlab and now everything is up and running for people to check out while they wait for the children’s museum to open.

Here’s the best part – there seems to be something for everyone at 258 N Kurzen Road from a hair salon to an art studio to workspace and conference space for businesses to a café and market.

And everything keeps in line with the mission of the entire project: linking people together.

Speaking of linking, something special is growing and coming together at the new LincWay Café and Market and everyone is welcome to be a part of it.

In mid-May, a community project was launched. A 42,000-piece jigsaw puzzle was donated featuring landmarks from around the world. The project involves seven sections. Each section has 6,000 pieces. The final size will be about 25 feet long and five feet high. Once assembled and glued together, the puzzle will be featured on the wall of the dining area for the Wayne County Children’s STEAM Playlab. The puzzle can be worked on when the Café is open 10:30 a.m.-8 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday and 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
