Here's a recap of our City By City report from Friday, May 23, 2014:
Mayor Ron Meer will deliver his 2014 state of the city address next Thursday, May 29. The public is invited to attend. It will take place in the council chambers on the lower level of city hall at 6 p.m. It will also be carried live on the local access channel.
You may want to get caught up on laundry this weekend. Etna Green is flushing hydrants starting on Tuesday. The water may become discolored because of it. Residents should let the water run for 10 minutes to clear it up. You should not do laundry on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.
United Cancer Services of Elkhart County needs your help. They're looking for volunteers to assist with upcoming events, like a poker run on May 31. If you'd like to help out you can call them at 574-875-5158.
A summer tradition will open Friday. The harvest market at the Woodlawn Nature Center sells locally-grown produce and plants as well as homemade treats. This marks year 7 for the market. It's open from 1 to 6 p.m. until October 11.
There is a beer tasting event going on Friday from 5 to 8 p.m. at Whole Foods. It costs $5 to sample a variety of craft beers. The money goes to a great cause, the South Bend Center for the Homeless and the "One Dime at a Time" program. When customers use a reusable bag now until June 20, they will have the option to donate ten cents per bag to the two organizations.
It's a special weekend in Nappanee to remember those who lost their lives for our country. Amish Acres will host a variety of family friendly activities including a flag coloring contest and an opportunity to learn how the American flag has changed through the years.
