June 1, 2014

Serving Culver - bearded or not

CULVER BEARD CLUB EXTRAORDINARY IN CULVER ON VARIETY OF LEVELS

-----------------
Its members are a decade or more younger and in different stations in life, many of them, than some of the familiar faces volunteering to serve the Culver community, and -- not so much in spite of that fact but because of it -- the existence of the Culver Beard Club may send some unexpected messages, locally and beyond.

For starters: it's possible to have fun -- and do something for others -- in Culver, Indiana in the dead of winter. On a weeknight.

Culver through the years: mid-May in decades past

May 18, 2014

40 years ago, May 16, 1974
Culver's new Swirly-Top Drive In opened for business May 15...a big feature being a drive-up window which will insure speedy, quality service. There are plenty of rea­sons to go indoors, too. A spacious interior features seat­ing at booths for 60 people. The interior is paneled, and an antique motif is accented by a dozen Tiffany-style lighting fixtures. A red quarry tile floor adds to the rustic effect of the decor. The air conditioned Swirly-Top will feature a variety of sandwiches and "baskets" as well as a complete selection of fountain delicacies.

New Culver comprehensive plan outlined

May 18, 2014

The town of Culver is in the home stretch of finalization of its comprehensive plan, following a community open house and concluding meeting held May 8 at the town park depot.

New Culver park superintendent Hayden prepares to take the reins

May 17, 2014

Marc Hayden, Culver's new park superintendent, wasn't really in the market for new job when he saw the listing for the position in the newspaper a few months ago. In fact, he initially "didn't pay much attention" to the opening. But when he saw the ad still there a week later, he got on the phone and began asking the voice on the other end -- which turned out to belong to park board member Patty Stallings -- for some background on the job.

"That got my curiosity up," Hayden told the Citizen last week, "and I submitted my resume and...was hired."
