    MCRTA Meeting March 11, 2019
    The Montgomery County Retired Teachers Association met March 11, 2019 at the Crawfordsville Public Library. Fifty five members and guests were in attendance. The meeting was called to order by President Stan Covey. Covey recognized the March birthdays and the invocation was given by Shelia Hodges. A delicious lunch was served by Allen’s County Kitchen.
    The Program was given by Mary Lou Dawald on Eva Kor’s story of forgiveness. Dawald and Dr. Linda Airey accompanied Eva on her annual trip to Auschwitz. As a childhood captive in Auschwitz, Eva saw her two sisters and parents taken away at the selection platform, never to be seen again. Eva and her twin, Miriam were saved, only to be victims of Dr. Joseph Mengele’s twin experiments. Although Eva’s childhood was tragic Eva has been able ultimately, to heal herself by forgiving her enemies. Miriam died at age 59 as a result of the experiments performed by Dr. Mengele. C.A.N.D.L.E.S. (Children of Auschwitz Nazi Deadly Lab Experiment Survivors) Museum was founded by Eva in Terre Haute in 1995. In 2001 her museum was burned to the ground by arsonists who were never apprehended. Eighteen months later, the new museum opened on the same site. For more information about Eva’s amazing story go to candlesholocaustmuseum.org.

    Jane Henegar, the Executive Director of the Indiana ACLU visited with the Crawfordsville Kiwanis on Thursday to explain how the ACLU gets involved in cases and the people they represent. The ACLU does not go looking for cases but takes on cases that are brought to them by someone that believes they were denied their rights.
    Henegar stated that one of the major goals of the ACLU is to protect free speech for all. Sometimes this becomes difficult when trying to balance the rights of one group with the rights of another. Henegar says that the ACLU is the most frequent litigant to the US Supreme Court.
    The Crawfordsville Kiwanis Club meets every Thursday at Noon at the Crawfordsville District Public Library. Come on out and have lunch with us and enjoy the tremendous speakers like Jane Henegar.

  • Dr. Christie Byun visits Kiwanis
    Saturday, February 23, 2019 4:00 AM
    Wouldn’t your son like to take a class on Fashion, Innovation and Entrepreneurship? Well the Crawfordsville Kiwanis club found out that Professor Christie Byun has taught this Freshman course for two years at Wabash College.
    This is an economics course that helps students learn the effect of the global economy on the clothing industry. For example, students research the travels of a t-shirt from growing the cotton to the final product on a shelf at the local retailer. The students also went shopping at Indianapolis area shopping malls to look at the clothes and investigate where they were made, the type of material and other attributes of the process.
    Prof. Bun strongly believes in immersion learning so students from her various classes have visited the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland Ohio, took a trip to Alaska for an Environmental Economics class and will soon be leaving on a trip to Iceland to research Renewable Energy.
    Dr. Byun is only one of the fantastic speakers we have heard from this year. Come on out and visit the Crawfordsville Kiwanis Club any Thursday at noon at the Crawfordsville District Public Library to hear more speakers like Dr. Byun.

    Saturday, January 19, 2019 4:00 AM
    Wabash College’s Head Swim and Diving Coach Will Bernhardt spoke at the Crawfordsville Kiwanis Club meeting on 1-17-19. Bernhardt became the head Coach at Wabash in October of 2018 after the swim season had already started as a result of the prior coach leaving for another position.
    Bernhardt said that the team has had good results this year, but they are looking forward to the Conference Championship on February 15th at Dennison College. Last week the team participated in a meet at Illinois Wesleyan College where the team won every event in which they participated.
    Bernhardt’s attitude is to “Coach the person first”, Develop the relationship and the results will follow. He instills in the team a belief that they should put hard work and commitment first in everything they do. The success of the team in both their sport and their academics shows that this belief is a part of their goals.
