Summer shouldn't mean hunger for children
As a child, I always looked forward to the carefree joy of summertime. I remember the long days of playing outside at a nearby park until I needed to come home for lunch. Unfortunately, many of our nation's children do not experience the simple joys of summer. In fact, far too many are left worrying where their next breakfast or lunch will come from when schools are dismissed for summer break.

During the school year, about 31 million American children receive school meals through the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program every day. About 21 million of those children receive meals at a discounted rate or for free, based on their family's income. When summer rolls around, though, only about 3.5 million of these children participate in USDA's summer meals programs.

That means millions of eligible low-income children are at risk of going hungry during the summer months. And we know that to thrive and reach their highest potential, children need good nutrition all year long.

Transportation, park were boasted of
In 1929 the Crawfordsville Chamber of Commerce could readily boast of its transportation and communications conveniences. It was stated that Crawfordsville was fortunate to being located at the crossing of numerous railroad lines and highways, giving direct access to purchasing centers and markets in every direction. The Peoria and Eastern division of the Big Four R.R. from Indianapolis to Peoria, the Vandalia division of the Pennsylvania R.R. from St. Louis and Terre Haute to Logansport, and the Monon R.R. from Chicago to Indianapolis and Louisville crossed here. Two traction lines in Indianapolis and Lebanon gave hourly passengers and express service east and south. State highways 32, 34, and 43 gave bus lines and truck lines great access to Crawfordsville as well as a building automobile trade.
