Have you heard of Hobson's Fun Farm in Rockville, Ind.? I hadn't until U.S. Family Guide alerted me to its existence just west of Hendricks County in Putnam County. It looks pretty cool.
Wouldn't it be great if there was a place designed for OUR KIDS with special needs to play organized sports on a playing surface that is conducive to all forms of mobility?
Thanks to the Optimist Miracle Movers, such a place is about to exist in Plainfield.
Located at the Al & Jan Barker Sports Complex, 451 S. Vestal Road in Plainfield, the new Optimist Miracle Movers Field is almost completed and is scheduled to open on Sept. 20.
Karen Cravotta, a pediatric physical therapist who coaches swimming through the Optimist Miracle Movers, was our guest speaker today at our Kiwanis Club of Danville meeting, and she enlightened all of us about this multi-year joint project spearheaded by the Town of Plainfield and the Optimist Club of Plainfield.
We seem to be Frozen at just under 500 likes on our Facebook page, so For the First Time in Forever, we'll do a prize giveaway In Summer once we hit 500 likes.
I have in my grubby little mitts a brand-new factory-sealed two-disc deluxe edition "Frozen" soundtrack that I'm just dying to give away to a Villager after we reach the half-century mark in Facebook page "likes."
So be sure to "like" our Facebook page and then share it with all your friends, Elsa we're going to have to Let It Go.
Anna we don't want to do that.
The REALTOR® Foundation is doing a cool thing during the month of September. They are providing a $5,000 grant to a central Indiana not-for-profit in support of the winning agency's efforts to combat homelessness. All you have to do to support a Hendricks County agency is vote online.
For those who are unfamiliar with The REALTOR® Foundation (and that included me until my friend Meghan Stritar from Macaroni Kid - Hendricks alerted me to the contest), it's a foundation that "exists to serve the philanthropic needs of those interested in solving homelessness in central Indiana," according to their website.
Homelessness doesn't exist in Hendricks County, though, right?
Au contraire, mon frère.
