Crothersville Parks Board will be hosting their 2nd Annual Easter Egg Hunt this Sunday, March 25, at 2 p.m. at Bard Street Park, according to Ron Foster, Crothersville Parks Board President.
There were be egg hunts for three age groups: up to 3 years old, ages 4 to 6, ages 7 to 10 will have their own roped off area and there will be a course for special needs youngsters.
The Easter Bunny will be available for photos with the youngsters.
Each of the 2,000 eggs will contain a prize and there will be special eggs with special prizes for each group, said Foster.
Less than two weeks after a fire that temporarily put him out of business south of Crothersville, Brent Lee, owner of Lee’s Tire & 4×4, said he hopes to re-open sometime this week in the garage at the former Regal Industries property west of Crothersville.
“It’s the former repair shop Regal used for their semis and is a good fit for us,” said Lee.
Lee said after he learned of the fire, Steve Wischmeier of Wischmeier Trucking, owner of the property, offered to rent him the building to get back into business.
“This is will a good location for us to continue serving our customers until I can figure out a permanent solution,” Lee said.
The business is located on County Road 600 S (Main St.) just west of the Crothersville Cemetery.
Pictured at the March 8 DAR award dinner are Jan Longest, Ft Vallonia DAR Regent; Kristen Noelle Stuckwisch, Brownstown Central; Anna May Huff, Seymour; Rachel Anne Onken, Trinity; and Noah Hoskins, Crothersville.
Crothersville senior Noah Hoskins, son of Chris and Connie Hoskins, was recently named the recipient of the Jackson County Daughters of the American Revolution Good Citizen Award is presented by Ft. Vallonia Chapter of DAR.
“Being honored as DAR Good Citizen is much more than good grades. It means you’ve given back to the community, to your school, to your church and to your family,” explained DAR spokesperson Ruth Ann Rebber.
“These students are selected by their respective schools on the basis of their outstanding qualities of dependability thoughtfulness, punctuality, service, cooperation, helpfulness, responsibility, leadership, personality, self-control, and patriotism and loyalty to the American ideals”, she added.
Student from four county high schools were given two hours to complete an essay of not more than 500 words on the topic: Our American Heritage and Our Responsibility for Preserving It. How has America advanced the cause of freedom in the rest of the world?
DAR Good Citizens from their respective schools include:
•Brownstown Central’s Kristen Noelle Stuckwisch, daughter of Eric & Marti Stuckwisch.
•Seymour high School’s Anna May Huff, daughter of Barry & Yoko Huff.
•Trinity Lutheran High School’s Rachel Anne Onken, daughter of Lance & Carol Onken.
All the nominees are seniors.
All entries were forward to the Ft. Vallonia Chapter Good Citizen Committee, and were then sent to a panel of judges from another county.
As county winner, Hoskins was entered in the Indiana State DAR good Citizen contest where the prize is a scholarship. The winners from each state proceed to the district and national selections for scholarship.
A new two-night music performance experiment is coming to Seymour on April 27 & 28 at several listening room venues in downtown Seymour, including the banquet room at Rails Craft Brew & Eatery and the Jackson County Visitor Center.
Artists expected to perform include Will Kimbrough and Tommy Womack playing as Daddy, Gabriel Kelley, Levi Parham, Jackson County natives Stephanie Lambring and Don Pedigo, Tim Grimm of Columbus, Danny Flanigan, Alan Rhody, Brooke Annibale, Count This Penny, Justin Paul Lewis, Corey Brumback and others.
The shows will be intimate acoustic performances in the line of VH1’s Storytellers or Nashville, Tennessee’s famous Bluebird Cafe, said festival organizer Shawn Busby of Seymour.
The festival will run from 6 to 11 p.m. April 27 and from 5 to 11 p.m. April 28. Single-day tickets are not available.
“It’s a very unique concept in terms of being a festival,” he said. “A lot of times when people think of festivals, they think of being outside, huge crowds, hot and sweaty, summertime. It’s none of those things.”
All of the performances are indoors, so it won’t be affected by weather. The venues are small to keep noise down so listeners can hear and appreciate the music, Busby said.
“It’s a quiet listening experience,” he said. “So this is not the place to come and talk with your friends while the music is happening. This is a festival for people who really appreciate music and want to hear lyrics. We want to draw in the people who are there for that personal, intimate experience with the artists.”
He hopes to see the festival attract 300 to 500 people in its first year.
Concert goers can purchase a wristband that will get them into any venue and performance as long as it’s not at capacity on both days for $30 through April 2. After that, the price goes up to $40. Tickets will not be available at the door of the venues.
A portion of ticket sales will benefit Southern Indiana Center for the Arts in Seymour.
Many of the artists are planning to play both nights, but the schedule won’t come out until the week of the festival. “You’ll have a couple chances to catch an artist,” Busby said.
“There’s a lot of festivals like this,” he said. “There’s a festival that I go to in Florida in January called the 30A Songwriters Festival, and that’s where we kind of borrowed this idea. Ours is on a much smaller scale. They do 25 rooms and 150 artists. It’s huge.”
Although smaller, Busby said the festival committee is trying to keep the entertainment quality high. All music is original and not covers of other artists, Busby said.
“We’ve got artists coming from Nashville, Tennessee, Oklahoma, from various places across the country,” he said. “And then we’re also bringing in some regional and local acts, as well. We want it to be a storytelling opportunity for the artists, so it needs to be an appreciative audience so the artists can present their songs and be heard.”
Talks of bringing a music event to Seymour started in 2015 with the Vision 2025 project, an initiative to get young professionals involved in making positive changes in Seymour. Busby chairs the Vision 2025 music committee. Other members are Arann Banks, Darnell Dukes, Becky Schepman, Joe Persinger, Roland Freeman and Shane Busby.
