Local veterans record stories for Library of Congress

June 21, 2011

PLYMOUTH — Two representatives for congressman Joe Donnelly visited the Plymouth VFW post 1162 Friday to videotape WWII veteran’s accounts of their service.

Blue dress worn by 3 generations

June 20, 2011

PLYMOUTH — When Charlotte Bender of Plymouth purchased the light blue frilly dress for her first daughter in 1955, she had no idea that her great-granddaughters would still be wearing the dress in 2011.
Since the dress was purchased, eleven babies have worn it in a photo taken at 6 months of age — a family tradition that, with any luck, will continue.
“The dress is so thin you can see through it,” said Christen White, Bender’s granddaughter.

Free wi-fi for downtown

June 17, 2011

PLYMOUTH — City council members voted this week to enter into an agreement with DC Tech Solutions, LLC, a Plymouth company.
DC Tech will provide high-speed Internet service to city departments in exchange for being allowed to place its equipment on Plymouth’s two water towers and on top of the fire department. In addition, DC Tech will supply free wireless Internet service to the downtown area, a $5,000 value.
“There aren’t many towns our size offering free wireless downtown,” said councilman Mark Neidig during the meeting. “For tourism, and for downtown residents, it’s a good asset.”

Lucky golfer(s) will drive away from the course

June 17, 2011

PLYMOUTH — If you are a golfer with some skills, you could be driving a new car home courtesy of the area’s Youth For Christ ministry.
YFC will hold its annual golf outing fundraiser at the Plymouth Country Club Thursday, June 23 — and thanks to some help from local businesses, two lucky golfers could have a new ride home.
“Somebody is definitely going to be driving a car home courtesy of the Auto Park,” said Bob Beck, leader of YFC. “Auto Park will give away a car for the golfer that is closest to the pin. Oliver Ford will be giving away a truck for a golfer who hits a hole-in-one.”

National regatta returns to Lake Max, brings fun for public, participants alike

June 17, 2011

If Lake Maxinkuckee looks especially picturesque this weekend due to a swath of graceful sails on its waters, that's because Culver is hosting the 2011 C Scow National Championship Regatta from June 17 through 19. And one of the people behind the event, Culver's own Ed Furry, says that's good news for the whole community -- and he hopes the whole community will take part in the festivities.
"We'll probably have 60 or 70 boats, each with a two or three-person crew," he says. "We'll be bringing a few hundred people to Culver to support the restaurants and businesses."
