Saturday Ice Cream Social To Benefit Sesquicentennial

Rather than having a dinner for the month of July, the Crothersville Sesquicentennial Committee will be holding an Ice Cream Social this Saturday, July 19, from 1-5 p.m. at Crothersville Fire Department.

The homemade ice cream will be served with choice of pie/pastry and drink. The price for the all-you-can-eat trio will be $5.00.

A few more ice cream freezers are needed. Please call activity Chair Vickie Byrd at 812-523-8048 if you would like to donate the use of an ice cream freezer for Saturday afternoon.

Lots of activities will be provided to run off the calories, including a corn hole game for adults, bean bag game for kids, a bake sale, a silent auction, a game called “Spoons” and the old stand-by Euchre.

CSC member Kim Jones has donated a beautiful hand-crocheted “Old Glory” afghan to help raise funds for the Sesquicentennial. The large red, white an blue afghan meaures 45″ x 70″. Raffle tickets will be available on Saturday for $2 each or two for $5, with the raffle on-going until the Sesquicentennial in September.

Mrs Jones will be entering the crocheted piece in next week’s Jackson County Fair for judging and display in the Family Arts Building this week. After the fair it can be seen at Crothersville Town Hall.

Area residents are asked to help on any of the many projects being planned for the historical 150th celebration in September. A very large crowd is expected to attend the 4-day festival to be held September 11-14 in Crothersville.

Those interested in volunteering in any way are asked to contact Rita Ibershoff at 859-582-8697 or Donna Crafton at 317-512-6143.

The public is reminded to stop by http://www.150YearsAgo.org to check for new additions and information about the upcoming Sesquicentennial.

Funds for the Crothersville Sesquicentennial Committee are administered by The Community Foundatin of Jackson County. Donations are greatly appreciated and can be dropped off at Town Hall with Linda Seals or CARD/CSC member Nalona Bush or at the Ice Cream Social this Saturday.
