  • Champion griller, top 4-H’er learns life skills
    8/24/2019 Evelyn Burton grew up a 4-H’er in Howard County, and her parents were both 4-H’ers before that, her mom in Wabash County, and her dad, in Rush County.
    So it was kind of expected that her two sons, Alan and Daniel, would be in 4-H, too.

    “It was never something we even talked about. It was just expected that they would be a part of the 4-H program,” said the Noblesville mom, whose late mother, Rebecca Wilson, was Hamilton County’s Microwave project leader for many years.
    “Fortunately, both of my boys were outgoing, and they both loved it once they got into it. It was never a question or a battle. They just both enjoyed it.”
    Today, Evelyn Burton is thankful for the 4-H program. She said, “I just think it’s one of the best programs for young people.”
  • Gala, Arts Awards coming soon
    8/23/2019 The countdown has begun.
    On Sept. 18, Nickel Plate Arts will hold its seventh anniversary gala with the fourth edition of the Nickel Plate Arts Awards to celebrate the area’s burgeoning arts scene and recognize some of the most valuable artists and arts advocates.
    The gala will take place at the Mill Top Banquet and Conference Center and feature dinner by Jacquie’s Catering, wine from Mr. G’s liquors, live music, hands-on arts experiences and a live auction during Nickel Plate Arts’ premiere fundraiser of the year.
    “This year’s gala is critical to Nickel Plate’s overall financial health,” Aili McGill, executive director for Nickel Plate Arts, said. She added that it “also allows us to share the stories of how the members of our creative community are improving the quality of life within and promoting economic development throughout the Nickel Plate region.”

Comprised of members spanning a broad cross section of public and private agencies and organizations, the Council meets regularly to provide resources and funding on the topics of alcohol and drugs. The primary goals of the group focus on prevention and education, intervention and treatment, and criminal justice.
