PLYMOUTH âÂ Tri Kappa will be hosting its Ladies Night Out event Thursday, March 3.Â With this yearâs theme âTake Me To The Fairâ this evening will offer a Country Fair buffet including braised country pot roast, corn on the cob, homemade pies and more.Â Some of the donated prizes available to win include: a Longaberger quilted bag, a Living History "Marshall County Pictorial History 1945-95," a South Bend Silver Hawks suite package for 20 people, five tanning sessions, and more.
PLYMOUTH â A close to capacity crowd celebrated Valentineâs Day enjoying a flute and piano duo at the Plymouth Country Club.
Ralph Booker and his wife Norma were among those enjoying the delicious food and enchanting music. He commented, âAn outstanding evening of excellent, refined entertainment preceded by a fine menu.Â It was an example of exceptional performing arts and shows a small community can rise to the top.â
Monday, March 14 will provide another opportunity to enjoy a wonderful dinner and a great evening of musicÂ by one of our own regional artists.
Across the state last week, members of Tri Kappa celebrated Tri Kappa week (February 21 through 27). Members of Culverâs Tri Kappa organization are busy making plans for their spring and summer events, the two largest of which are Tour De Max on May 21, and Chairs for Charity, June 12.
CULVER â Culver Community head coach Tony Scheub told his Lady Cavs to hold their heads high as they left the locker room after the Class 2A Girls Basketball Semistate Saturday.
Because, although they may have fallen a little short of the championship, the list of what the team was able to accomplish far outweighs that close 47-43 loss to No. 1-rated Fort Wayne Luers.
BOURBON â From 1977 Chicago Bulls NBA draft pick Rich Rhodes to University of Michigan MVP Lorea Feldman to beloved Coach Ron Smith, one contributor, one coach and four student athletes were inducted into the new Triton Athletic Hall of Fame at the Inaugural Banquet on February 19.
NEW CASTLE â Alysa Kaminskas of Plymouth finished second in the 8-9 girls division at the State Elks Hoop Shoot free throw contest at New Castle, Saturday. Alysa was sponsored by the Plymouth Elks Lodge No. 2548.
PLYMOUTH â It didnât take a fairy godmother to make area high school girlsâ dreams of wearing the perfect gown to the prom this year a reality. It just took the idea of a Tri Kappa member and the hard work of many others.

ELKHART â Culver Community girls basketball skipper Tony Scheubâs voice cracked, partly from emotion, partly, no doubt, from guiding his team through a memorable tournament run.
With that diminishing voice, he relayed a powerful message to his squad following its 47-43 semistate loss to Class 2A No. 1 Fort Wayne Luers at Elkhartâs North Side Gymnasium Saturday.
