LFW Member Spotlight – Cole Trammell

Have you ever wondered who the people behind Living Fort Wayne are? Or maybe you’re curious about the different things our team does every day that make Living Fort Wayne the go-to destination for all the great things happening in our city. In this new spotlight series, we’ll be featuring a few of our amazing volunteers who will share a bit about their contributions to Living Fort Wayne and what they do outside of their volunteer work with us. Today we are spotlighting Living Fort Wayne’s Technology and Analytics Manager, Cole Trammell! What is your role with Living Fort Wayne and why did you decide to volunteer for our blog? Technology and analytics Manager. I choose to work for Living Fort Wayne because I wanted something fun to do with my free time! Tell us one thing about your life outside of Living Fort Wayne I’m a huge hockey nut and I’m currently a senior at Snider High School If you could live any other place in the world, besides Fort Wayne, where would you live and why? I would probably have to say one of Fort Wayne’s Sister Cities, Taizhou, China! If you haven’t seen or heard of it, I encourage you to look it up! Within the states, I would move to New York because there are so may business opportunities. If you had a friend coming in from out of town, what is the one can’t miss thing you would show them or do with them in Fort Wayne? Take them to the Embassy to see Fort Wayne Philharmonic or a Komets Game! If you were going to karaoke tonight, what song would you sing? Yikes, good question! Either “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen or “Fight For your Right” by the Beastie Boys Keep your eyes peeled for the next Spotlight with another one of Living Fort Wayne’s volunteers.

Another holiday season in Fort Wayne is now in the books for many of us! Today we take a look back at the season that was in Fort Wayne this year! While we couldn’t make it out to everything our area had to offer, here’s what really caught the eyes of our Instagram photographers. The “Snow Days” exhibit is now open at The Conservatory! #DTFW #FortWayne A post shared by Living Fort Wayne (@livingfortwayne) on Nov 21, 2017 at 9:43am PST We started off the Christmas season in November when we checked out the “Snow Days” exhibit at the Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory, an enclosed conservatory located right in the heart of downtown Fort Wayne. Check them out year round for more events and activities. Holiday Pops with @fwphil at @fwembassytheatre! #FortWayne ❄️ A post shared by Living Fort Wayne (@livingfortwayne) on Dec 9, 2017 at 12:37pm PST On December 9 we headed out to the Holiday Pops from the Fort Wayne Philharmonic at the beautiful Embassy Theatre.

A post shared by Living Fort Wayne (@livingfortwayne) on Dec 25, 2017 at 3:18pm PST The area (hopefully) enjoyed a white Christmas before the current dip into a deep freeze!
