Ice Cream Social At Hamacher Hall Saturday

Hamacher Hall will be the site of an ice cream social for Crothersville area residents, friends, and supporters. The annual event is scheduled for Saturday afternoon, July 11, from 2-4 p.m., and will include ice cream, toppings, cookies, tea, and lemonade. There is no charge for this event, but donations are gratefully accepted.

Hamacher Hall is the home of the Crothersville Town Players, and the project of the Crothersville Historical and Cultural Arts Association. The former Presbyterian Church, it has been renamed Hamacher Hall in honor of town founder, John Hamacher.

The Association exists to promote interest and knowledge of Crothersville History and to promote participation and enjoyment of the arts among Crothersville area residents. All donations are tax deductible, and funds are used for maintenance and improvements to the properties. In addition to events for the current year, the group is planning events for the upcoming Indiana and Jackson County Bicentennial of 2016, and welcomes suggestions from the community.

Small Businesses Beings Scammed

Sheriff Mike Carothers said several county businesses have been the target of telephone scams.

“Businesses have reporting getting a phone call from someone claiming to be a representative of Duke Energy,” said the sheriff. “The small business owner is being advised that they are late on the electric bill and must pay by phone to keep their service.”

Duke energy has been contacted and they are aware of the scame and said their company does not telephone customers demanding money.

“Do not give any personal information over the phone and call the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department (812-358-2141) if you feel a scam has been attempted,” said Carothers.
