We get this little magazine because we are in a co-op for our electricity, it is from Paulding Putnam. Seems like sometime last year or maybe two years ago, time does fly, we used to get a similar magazine from Ohio, but this is all about Indiana. I get more information from this magazine that has only 30 pages in it. You would think it would be all about electric current and wattage. Not so fast my friends. Here are the interesting tidbits that learned or they just made me remember. Raggedy Ann and Andy were created in Indianapolis. Indiana had 5 Vice Presidents from our state and one President. Some famous people from Indina are Steve Kroft of 60 minutes, Greg Kinnear, Actor, Florence Henderson from The Brady Bunch, John Wooden basketball coach and Col. Harland Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken.
Apparently every May they choose Art for their calendar and it is from submissions from students, 1st grade and up. I love to see art being promoted and the pictures were really enjoyable. Next year is Indiana’s Bicentennial and that was the theme of the contest this year.
Here are the rest of the pictures, the Lewis and Clark expedition, the state tree-Tulip, Abraham Lincoln’s boyhood home, the soldiers memorial in Indianapolis and the Statehouse in Indianapolis to name a few.
This page showed the honorable mentions which were just as good. Other articles that were informative: French Lick was having chalk art extravaganza. Vincennes was having a reenacting of the RevolutionaryWar. There is going to be a Dr. Seuss exhibition at the Indianapolis Art Museum. It talks about a Huge Garage sale on Route 40. I can make my own cat treats out of tuna fish recipe. An article featuring a restaurant my husband and I ate at years ago. A good story about a snake in the garden. The last page talks about their great finds at a garage sale. It’s all interesting stuff. It really was a good read. Thanks for stopping!
