    Friday, June 8, 2018 9:21 PM
    Just a few years before Indiana became a state in 1816 almost 85 percent of the state was forest said Lenny Farlee from the Purdue University Forestry department. Lenny says he wasn’t around then but his work as a Hardwood Extension Specialist for Purdue has made him somewhat of a historian of the forests of Indiana.

He is also involved in groups that work on sustainable forest management and effective forest research. Whether you own a large forest or just some backyard trees his information was very informative. If you would like to hear more conversations on topics like these please come and visit the Crawfordsville Kiwanis meeting any Thursday at Noon in the Donnelly room at the Crawfordsville District Public Library.

  • CLUB NEWS: Flower Lovers Name June Garden of the Month
    Thursday, May 31, 2018 6:34 PM
    The Flower Lovers Club recognizes Bonnie and Rhett Jones for their bright and cheerful front yard at 1402 W. Main, Crawfordsville. President of the club, Janet Hook, explains that the Garden of the Month flag is given to one creative and knowledgeable front-yard gardener in June, July, and August in the years the Club does not sponsor a Garden Walk. 
    Mr. and Mrs. Jones are lifelong Crawfordsville residents with an eye for color, balance, and creative containers. Their welcoming porch features brightly painted rustic chairs surrounded by neatly edged and mulched flower beds. The particular charm of the Jones’ garden comes in the creative use of containers within the traditional flower beds. 
    A galvanized tub full of verbena, marigolds, and petunia stands on either side of the front walkway. Lush coir windowboxes planted with nicotiana, creeping jenny, and petunia are mounted on the porch railings. Whimsical elements, such as pots of geranium placed on a bicycle sculpture, a pedestal, or a weathered chair, all require a second look. 
    To the left of the porch, the containers are placed against a simple background of mountain bluets. To the right is a thriving colony of balloon flower, as well as lilies, hydrangea, hosta, and coral bells. Other foliage plants such as potato vine, lamium, and coleus, both in the ground and in containers, will provide interest throughout the summer. Elephant ears will soon make a dramatic entrance.

  • Dr. Kirtley’s Clock Tower is almost back!
    Sunday, May 13, 2018 10:10 PM
    The Crawfordsville Kiwanis Club had the opportunity to hear from Sandra Lofland-Brown Thursday who told us the story of the missing clock tower above the Montgomery County Courthouse. As many people know the clock tower was removed in 1941 because it was believed to be a safety hazard.
    Dr. James Kirtley, a lifetime resident and physician in Montgomery County started a drive to replace the clock tower in the 1980’s but was not able to reach the goal prior to his death. The Clock Tower Project became the chore of Sandra Lofland-Brown in 1996 when she took over the task of fulfilling the goal of her friend Dr. Kirtley.
    Now the Clock Tower is almost back. Brown reports that the trucks with the new tower should be arriving Monday afternoon and hopefully be raised to the top of the courthouse on Thursday or Friday next week.
    Working on the committee with Mrs. Brown since the start have been Hubert Danzebrink and Jean Chadwick, both members of the Crawfordsville Kiwanis Club.
