Lifelong Learning to feature glassware

Donavon Schmidt, rural Newton, will speak about the “ins and outs” of antique glassware at Lifelong Learning on Friday. He will bring some of his pieces to show.

Schmidt invites those who have their own collection to bring a piece to hear his personal comments. The session will begin at 9:45 a.m. in the Wohlgemuth Music Education Center.

Donavon and his wife, Deloris, operated DonDel Antiques in Walton. Donavon is currently serving as chairman of the board of directors at the Mennonite Heritage & Agricultural Museum, Goessel.

As a glassware expert, he gives presentations and appraisals. He and his wife are members of the Wichita Glass Gazers Glass Club and the National Depression Glass Association, Inc.

Lifelong Learning is held regularly through the school year according to program director Connie Isaac. Fees are $4 per session or $15 per semester ($29 per couple) payable at the door. Registration allows for optional lunch at discount in the cafeteria after the session.

For more information, contact Isaac at 620-947-5964, or

The next Lifelong Learning will be April 12 with President and CEO of MB Foundation, Jon Wiebe, sharing about changes retirees are facing.
