Hamilton Grove's Epp Hall to be demolished

As we near the end of New Carlisle Epp Hall’s standing on Hamilton Grove’s Campus, it is important that we share the story of how the board came to the incredibly difficult decision of demolishing this historic building. With almost 20 years of Epp Hall Task Force Committee contributions and efforts to utilize, integrate, and celebrate this landmark, all resources have unfortunately been exhausted in attempts to save the home. However difficult the decisions made may be, we want to take the time to share the background on the many attempts we made to revive this once thriving New Carlisle landmark. The history of Hamilton Grove campus goes back to the early years of the 20th Century when the

St. Joseph County 4-H has a 10-Year Scholarship Recognition Program. There were four Olive Township 4-H members who achieved this goal. One of the 4-H 10-year members is Cheyanne Weiland. She is a graduate of New Prairie High and will be attending Indiana University South Bend this fall, majoring in nutrition. Her favorite part about being in 4-H was the feeling of always being included in the horse and pony projects. All of the hard work and hours of clean up and volunteering all came together during fair week. She will always have the memories and determination from her years in 4-H ... and for that she is very grateful. Here is Cheyanne’s favorite recipe. Breakfast Tofu Scramble 1⁄2 cup

On April 19, 1775, our brave forefathers engaged in the Revolutionary War to give us freedom. Let’s take a moment to think about the courage these men had to have, since unlike us, they didn’t know how the war would end. They just knew they were tired of being taken advantage of by the king and they decided they would push back against the oppression. Truly this is a story of the little guy winning an apparent hopeless battle against the big guy. Though the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4, 1776, the king didn’t agree with our Declaration until September 3, 1783 when the war officially ended. This means that the determination was there long before the vision was within reach.

Summer Kickoff Fun Becomes 10 Year Tradition!

When my oldest son was in second grade and my youngest was in kindergarten, they asked that I bring popsicles to school on the last day. Of course, I couldn’t exclude their friends in the other classes. The teachers returned the leftover popsicles, and we took them to the park to share with friends and random kids before they melted. At first, kids looked at me like it was a trick when they finished their popsicle, and I told them to eat more before they all melted. The kids said it was a great way to start summer break. They asked if we could take popsicles to the park again the following year. Just like that a tradition was born! When my youngest moved on to middle school, Sarah Walenga wa

Message from Olive Chapel

With Father’s Day coming upon us, I wanted to focus my writing on fathers. This has been quite a task for me, since I am not a father, nor am I even a man. I don’t intimately know the struggles of a man, or the insecurities of a father. I don’t know how a father needs to be encouraged or what angle is most effective. Give me the task of speaking to a woman on Mother’s Day and I could find endless topics, but for men? I feel lost. I joke with my clients that to me, men are like Zebras. I can study them, I can learn about them, but I will never know what it is like to be one. This is my situation as I write to you today about fathers. As an woman who studies Zebras, I mean men, for a living t
