Maple Crest residents take a trip to Gallery 323

Maple Crest residents caught a glimpse of an artist at work recently during a tour of Gallery 323, an art gallery and shop operated by Gregg Luginbuhl on Main Street, Bluffton.

During the visit, they discovered artistic items - created for the most part by Luginbuhl - from white porcelain clay. Additional  pieces, including paintings and jewelry, are for sale by other artists in Bluffton.

Gregg's artistic talent came down through the genes, in a sense, as his father, Darvin Luginbuhl, was a former art professor at Bluffton University.

Stan Schneck's mark on Pandora will remain for a long, long time

By Fred Steiner
We all know Stan Schneck was “Mr. Pandora.”

There’s more to that title than you might think. Stan's older brother, Don, passed the title on  to Stan, and Stan carried it well.

Don and Stan’s father, Clarence, then might as well be considered the Father of two Mr. Pandora’s. In an earlier generation, Clarence was an important heartbeat of the Pandora community.

Stan was about as Swiss as you could get – having a Schneck father and a Burkhalter mother and holding a life-long St. John Mennonite membership.
