City By City Report for March 31, 2014

Here's a recap of our City By City report from Monday, March 31, 2014:

South Bend

Students in IU South Bend's dental hygiene program are providing a free dental sealant clinic this week. The clinics will be held this Friday from 5:30 to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the education arts building on campus. You can make an appointment in advance.

Knox & Plymouth

Two local drive-ins open for the season on Friday. Melody Drive-In in Knox is showing Captain America. Tri-Way drive-in in Plymouth also opens Friday, but they haven't released their movie line-up yet.

Benton Harbor

Lake Michigan College is considering a new program that might appeal to wine connoisseurs. According to our reporting partners at the Herald Palladium, the school voted to move forward with an oenology and viticulture program – meaning wine making. They still have to get approval from the agency in charge of accreditation.


We have an update on the fundraising effort for a little girl battling a life-threatening disease. The goal was to raise $31,000 in 31 days to buy a special van to help two-and-a-half year old Ella Lanay Hunt of Osceola. As of Sunday night, they only needed about $1,900 and Monday is the last official day of the campaign. Ella is fighting Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) which cripples her body.

Notre Dame

Time is running out to join the Notre Dame Kids Club. The deadline is Tuesday. Kids will get a club t-shirt, membership card, lanyard and certificate; as well as free admission to all regular season home soccer, volleyball, lacrosse, baseball and softball games. They’ll also get four free tickets to the Blue-Gold Irish football game and much more. Membership is only $30 and open to kids up to the 8th grade.
