    Since 1906 St. Mary’s of Navilleton (near Galena) has hosted their annual church picnic, and this year’s version was held Sunday (July 19) at the church grounds, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Things have changed over the years, such as the games and booths, but the dinner still has chicken, as well as all of the usual foods you would associate with a picnic.
    This year, a large area was set aside for corn hole to be played, as this is one of the more popular games at church picnics and similar events.
    If you weren’t interested in corn hole, you could play bingo, and hopefully win some cash.
    A number of drawings for cash were also available, for those who bought tickets for those drawings.
    And of course, there were the usual standbys, such as the cake wheel, and a plant wheel. At the wheel games, participants would put down a dime on a number on a board, and someone would spin a large wheel. If a lucky individual had the correct number, they won one of the prizes in that booth.
    There were also plenty of games for children, and this included face painting, one of the more popular booths at the picnic.

North Harrison board hears concerns about Character in Education program PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 15 July 2009 00:00
    The Character in Education program at North Harrison High School recently came into question when a number of tickets fir the prize drawing were found having been taken out of it. Interim Supt. Randy Barrett was notified, and they were returned to the drum containing the rest of the tickets. Angela Beaver shared her concerns at Thursday’s meeting of the North Harrison Board of School Trustees about the present state of the program, since the tickets were discovered.
    Several parents have had concerns about the program, from whether or not it will continue, to whether or not the tickets have been distributed fairly to the students in the first place.
    Tickets are given for such things as being on the honor roll, not being absent or tardy, as well as other positive behaviors. The tickets then go into a drum in the high school office. A number of prizes are donated by merchants in the community, with the biggest prize of all a new Ford Focus auto donated by Heritage Ford in Corydon, Indiana.
    “I’m here tonight because I want to know how (this issue) will be addressed,” Beaver said. “Students have expressed concerns that it isn’t run fairly. It could be a wonderful program. (The students) don’t believe they have a chance to win.”
