  • World Thinking Day
    Tuesday, February 21, 2017 4:00 AM
    More than 40 local Girl Scouts attended the annual Montgomery County Girl Scout World Thinking Day, which was held Saturday at First United Methodist Church in Crawfordsville. The focus of the event was for Girl Scouts and Girl Guides all around the world to think of each other and give thanks and appreciation to their “sister” Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. The day began with songs and ceremonies, a presentation on India by Dr. Ravinder Surakanti, followed by an international bazaar. Troops hosted booths representing Japan, Italy, Romania, France and Russia. By visiting the booths, girls learned about different countries while sampling food, games and crafts.

    The City of Crawfordsville and Crawfordsville High School Sunshine Society were chosen to participate in this year’s My Community, My Vision program. The program is a partnership with Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority and Ball State University. The program was developed so that young people in Indiana could pursue their dreams in their hometowns, aligning the program nicely with the city’s vision of the Stellar Communities program. Additionally, the work of the local collaboration will be included in the city’s updated Comprehensive Plan where appropriate.
    The students will hold a public meeting to present their vision on Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the Crawfordsville Commerce Center on the third floor of the Chase Bank building downtown. The will present the plan to the Lt. Governor later this spring. The local event will allow the students to work on their presentation and get community input.

    Jordan is an 8-year-old boy who lives in a single parent home with a younger sibling in the north part of the county. His mother says Jordan is outgoing and likes to help out around the house. He’s very good at drawing / painting and at math but needs to work on his speech and his reading. She said he loves to go to the park, ride bikes (even though he currently doesn’t have one) and play with toys.
    Jordan said he likes school and his favorite subject is math. Jordan would like to be a firefighter when he grows up and if he could go anywhere in the world it would be to see a fire station. Jordan likes to walk, go to parks, fish, swim, bake and cook, watch movies, do craft projects, draw, pet care and visit museums. His favorite place to eat is McDonald’s and Burger King.
