  • Noblesville Friends Church to hold ‘Candlelight Service’ on Dec. 16
    12/10/2018 Noblesville Friends Church is inviting the public to attend a Christmas Candlelight service at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 16. Organ and piano music will begin at 6:15 p.m. The hour-long program will consist of scripture readings telling the Christmas story and beautiful music by talented musicians playing oboe, trumpet, violin and vocalists accompanied by piano.
    The congregation will also be invited to sing well-known Christmas carols during the service, and guests are invited to enjoy refreshments afterward in the church’s Fellowship Hall. The church is located at 1055 Division Street across from Seminary Park in Noblesville.
    As visitors arrive and leave the Candlelight Service, they will also have the opportunity to enjoy the lighted Christmas nativity in front of the church and the lighted displays in Seminary Park across the street, some of which formerly decorated the downtown courthouse square.

  • Hamilton Co. Sheriff’s Office shops for kids
    12/10/2018 Santa’s helpers at the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office had a busy morning on Saturday, Dec. 8, as the Shop for Kids annual shopping extravaganza took place. More than 50 area youth were treated to a shopping trip to Target in an effort to make the holiday season a bit brighter for those who need some extra assistance to experience the joy of the season. 
    The morning started with donuts and juice as the kids, their families, and employees of the Sheriff’s Office got to know each other. Everyone then bundled into cars for a special trip from the Sheriff’s Office to the Target store in Fishers. Dozens of cars with lights and sirens in full operation stretched down the road as motorists stopped, waved, and took photos. What the onlookers couldn’t see were the excited faces of children as, for some, the trip in a sheriff car was a highlight of the day.

  • Lots of holiday music coming up in schools
    12/10/2018 I always love attending Noblesville Chamber of Commerce Holiday Luncheon.
    Not only does it give me the opportunity to don my ugliest (or most obnoxious) Christmas sweater, but it allows us all to enjoy some beautiful holiday music performed every year at the luncheon.
    North Elementary’s 11-member fourth-grade Hand Chimes Choir performed holiday songs as Chamber luncheon guests arrived and also during the holiday luncheon. When my daughter was in North’s hand-chimes choir three years ago, the choir played at the luncheon as well as Chick-fil-A and local nursing homes. Choir director Janene Krent is such a wonderful music teacher at the school. There’s no wonder that kids who come out of her hand chimes choir and general music classes go on to sing in middle- and high-school show choirs, perform in school musicals and compete in music competitions.

  • Sheridan Fourth of July Committee begins 2019 planning
    12/10/2018 It’s not even Christmas yet and a small group of Sheridan folks are already meeting to plan the annual events surrounding the July 4th Festival for 2019. The first of many meetings took place on Tuesday, Nov. 27, and began with a general discussion of what went right and what went wrong for the 2018 event.
    “The 4th of July in Sheridan is a time for our community to come together and enjoy the true patriotism, and meaning behind the 4th of July. The 4th of July festival and Lions club parade have always been a cherished event within our community,” Committee chair Katie Fisher said at the beginning of the meeting. 
  • 12/10/2018 The Indiana Arts Commission Board has voted to officially designate the City of Fishers’ Nickel Plate District as a Statewide Cultural District. The designation was approved at today’s IAC Quarterly Business Meeting.
    The City of Fishers applied for the designation in September, citing the recent momentum around advancing art and culture in Fishers. This fall, the City was recognized as the Emerging Arts Champion of the Year by Nickel Plate Arts. This honor is awarded annually to an individual or entity that supports local arts and artists through collaboration, promotional efforts, and creativity. 
  • PHOTOS: Noblesville West Middle School Orchestra

    Earlier this week, Noblesville West Middle School held their first orchestra concert of the year for this group of 6th graders.

    "At home when the kids practice, you're kind of thinking: 'Gee, I guess it sounds good'," said local photographer Nicholas Shotwell. "But when we heard them all together in unison, led by Ms. Jackson, the kids were focused and sounded great...looking forward to watching more concerts from this group over the next few years. "
