To reach the Noblesville Township Trustee office, call 317-773-0249 or email info@noblesvilletownshiptrustee.com.
  • Boys & Girls Club connecting . . . virtually
    4/7/2020 It could be difficult for folks right now who rely on the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville for everything from a safe gathering place after school to spring break camps and sports leagues.
    The Club is closed until further notice to the more than 2,400 members, many of whom consider the club their second home. It’s been closed since March 13, due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease) pandemic.
    The annual spring break Day Break Camps and Camp Crosser Camps are canceled, and refunds are in the mail. There are no spring youth volleyball leagues. No place to play pool, create art, work on computers or just have fun with your friends.
    But seeing the need for club activities, the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville team has created and launched a new Virtual Clubhouse.
  • Elks raise $12K for student meals
    4/4/2020 It’s been nearly three weeks since Noblesville Elks Lodge No. 576 closed its doors until further notice, due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease) pandemic.
    But just a week before the closure, the Lodge had one of its most successful fundraisers ever, with more than $12,800 raised for charity.
    That benefiting charity was Fueled for School, which is using the money to purchase food in bulk for Noblesville school families in need.
    “It was perfect timing,” Lodge treasurer Dave Riddle said. “Timing was everything as this event might have had to be postponed if it was a week later.”
    He said, “The badly needed funds are much appreciated.”
    The Elks’ Fueled for School Challenge, a bowlathon, in its second year, took place at Bowl 32, which was a major contributor along with Wings Etc., Priority Risk Insurance and Dorsey Excavating.
    “Funds almost doubled from what was raised last year,” Riddle said.
    He said the Lodge was glad to help. The money meant even more since the pandemic “with the inability to assemble numerous volunteers due to limiting groups of more than 10,” he said.
  • Small businesses getting help and getting creative
    4/3/2020 Today is the deadline to submit applications for the Noblesville Small Business Resilience Grant.
    Noblesville Mayor Chris Jensen on Tuesday announced the grant program that would provide up to $10,000 per grant to small businesses that have been impacted by the COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease) pandemic. The grant is based on demonstrated need.
    The program was introduced in one of several videos that Mayor Jensen has launched on social media during the pandemic.
    Actually, there have been a few nice videos featuring Jensen and the Jensen family.
  • Stay home if you don’t have essential job
    4/2/2020 What have you been doing during this COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease) pandemic?
    Stay home, if you don’t have an essential job.
    While journalism jobs are essential, I’ve been home, working at home.
  • NFD: ‘We will get through this together’
    4/1/2020 Firefighters are America’s real-life superheroes. They do the impossible. They save lives. They’re courageous. They’re strong.
    And to some, they seem invincible.
    But when the community learned on Thursday that a Noblesville fire official tested positive for COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease), our hearts sank as we all felt the pandemic as “too close to home.”
  • This spring break will be a ‘staycation’
    3/31/2020 When Noblesville Schools decided about three years ago to schedule two weeks each for spring and fall breaks, adding to the already two-week holiday break, we weren’t sure if we’d like it.
    After all, the summer seems short already. Take away another two weeks of our summer, and there is less time to spend swimming and playing at Forest Park Aquatic Center.
  • Let’s abide by the governor’s orders
    3/28/2020 We’re all in this together.
    So let’s please be nice to one another, while abiding by Gov. Eric J. Holcomb’s executive orders.
    This week, I saw on a Noblesville Facebook group that someone had the boldness to snap photos of shoppers wearing masks, then blast them on how they shouldn’t be wearing masks when others in the health field needed the masks.
  • Adoptions cease, shelter has set hours for fostering, intake
    3/27/2020 Many of you may be enjoying more life with the family since the Governor’s recent executive order to “Stay at Home.”
    And often that home life includes a furry friend or two to keep you company.
    In fact, 67 percent of households in the nation, or about 85 million families own a pet, according to the 2019-2020 National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association.
    About 48.2 million households own dogs and almost 32 million households own cats, according to the most recent report of the American Veterinary Medical Association.
    And as you’re enjoying time at home with your pet, you may have also been wondering about the shelter animals’ needs at the Humane Society for Hamilton County.
  • Teacher parades show support for their students
    3/26/2020 Everybody loves a parade. Especially elementary school students who adore and miss their teachers.
    Noblesville elementary school teachers and staff this week decorated their vehicles, waved handmade posters and honked their horns at their students, who smiled and waved back at them, some with their own posters.
