May 29, 2020: James Crouse has passed along this information from Morris Tippin concerning the scheduled Medora Covered Bridge dinner.
"We are sad to announce that we are canceling the tenth annual Dinner on the Medora Covered Bridge scheduled for August 1, 2020. We feel it would just be too complicated due to the virus. We encouage you to patronize our caterer: The Country Cookin' Restaurant on SR 56 on the East Side of Salem. We are accepting donations as this was a major fund raiser. We are a 501C3 Tax Exempt Organization. The address is FMCBA, P.O. Box 132, Medora, IN 47260.
The Medora or Dark Covered Bridge (WGN 14-36-04) is located between the towns of Carr and Driftwood in Jackson County. The three span bridge was built in 1875 to cross the East Fork of the White River. It is 434 feet long and uses a Burr Arch truss.¹
