When Waveland Elementary School closed in 2014, the Town of Waveland was able to acquire two pieces of playground equipment from the South Montgomery School Corporation and they were moved to the Waveland Town Park.  But there was no money to prepare a proper, and safe surface for the equipment.  Additionally, the park restrooms were in disrepair, and the shelter needed to be painted.  In all, $3,000 was needed; $2,000 for the playground mulch alone.  The school closing left residents concerned about the future of their community.  But they believed that Waveland was still a great community and that “they needed to stay united, stay beautiful, and stay Waveland Strong,” said Gina Haile, a founder of the newly formed nonprofit organization called Waveland Strong.  Over the past four months they have rallied to raise $2,000 and the balance was recently met with a $1,000 Montgomery County Community Foundation 25th Anniversary Grant.

Question of the Week

The fund-raising for the courthouse clock tower is almost complete. When it's done, the tower will really help Crawfordsville's downtown.
