Here's a recap of our City By City report from Tuesday July 15, 2014:
Goodwill Industries is holding a free job search workshop Tuesday. It’s going to be at their retail store on State Road 23 in Granger from 5 to 7 p.m. There will be resume help and stylist and image consultant Kathy Friend will talk about how to present yourself professionally.
Our own Meterologist Cindi Clawson will be at the Plymouth Public Library Tuesday. She's giving a presentation about weather and will even do some fun experiments. Everyone is welcome and the program starts at 10 a.m. The library is also hosting a movie and popcorn for kids at 1 p.m. Kids under 11 must be accompanied by an adult. Tuesday is also the last day to register for the library’s summer reading program.
Families will have to do without the refreshing splash of St. Joseph's Whirlpool Compass fountain for a few weeks. That's because it will be under repair, as crews re-caulk some trouble spots. According to our reporting partners at the Herald Palladium, the fountain normally catches water and recycles it but water has been leaking from the retention system. The repairs start Wednesday and once finished the fountain jets will not need to be shut down as often.
Stories will come to life at Wellfield Botanic Gardens in Elkhart. "Stories in the Garden" will take place every third Tuesday of the month. No registration is necessary and it is free but you should bring a comfy blanket to sit on. The event starts at 6 p.m. Visitors are asked to meet in the English Cottage Garden. If it’s raining, it will take place in the tented area.
LaVille Schools will soon be adding more buses to its fleet. The Union North United School Corporation approved buying two used school buses for just under $30,000 total. According to Pilot News, they'll be used as extra buses for the district's specific needs. At the meeting, the board also decided to sort through its school equipment and supplies, recycling its old electronics and donating furniture to charity.
Michigan's lieutenant governor will be in Benton Harbor Tuesday. According to our reporting partners at WSJM, Brian Calley and Regulatory Affairs Director Steve Arwood will be discussing jobs, specifically the governor's plan to create more. Business leaders will be joined by members of the media for a roundtable at Maximum Mold on Territorial Road.
