BREMEN â€” â€śThey help protect our freedom. They deserve everything we give them,â€ť said Audrey Reed, a member of the Bremen Ladies Auxiliary, host of a benefit dinner to raise funds for local Operation Quiet Comfort campaign.
The event is slated Saturday, Sept. 25, from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Bremen VFW and American Legion Post, 1750 W. Plymouth St., Bremen.
PLYMOUTH â€” The Life Enrichment Center will host a very unique art exhibit by local artist Wayne W. Hostetler from Sept. 28 to Oct. 8.
The exhibit will also be open on Saturdays for the public to view with the artist present. Hostetler will also be present during afternoons during the show at the Center at 1305 W. Harrison in Plymouth.
The show is unique in many ways. Its centerpiece will be a life- sized alligator. It will feature three different mediums â€“ sculpture, water colors and photography â€“ and none of the pieces are for sale.
PLYMOUTH â€” A lot of troops overseas will have a smile on their faces thanks to the help of the Plymouth Phi Delts and the Patriot Guard.
Patriot Day activities by the Plymouth club including a procession and memorial at Oak Hill Cemetery and a post procession gathering raised $1,600 for the Patriot Guard that sends care packages overseas for servicemen as well as funding several programs for the families of those serving overseas.
PLYMOUTH â€”Â If you blinked you probably missed a good chunk of Plymouthâ€™s volleyball match against visiting Bremen Wednesday.
Boosted by a lightning-fast start, the Pilgrims needed just 53 minutes to dispatch Bremen 25-4, 25-12, 25-18 in an intra-county squabble at The Rock.
Plymouth packed a powerful punch at the net and blanketed its half of the court while breezing through the first two games.
KENDALLVILLE â€” Jack Kinney knows his teamâ€™s odds at the East Noble regional are a long shot.
With the kinds of teams populating the field at Cobblestone Saturday â€”Â including Indiana High School Golf Coaches Association top 20-rated East Noble and DeKalb as well as undefeated Northern Lakes Conference and Warsaw Sectional champ Wawasee â€” grabbing one of the top three team standings to qualify for the state meet is going to be an uphill climb. So the Lady Pilgrims arenâ€™t sweating it. Theyâ€™re keeping things breezy and come tourney time, theyâ€™ll see if they can shake things up.
LAKEVILLE â€” As the second half of the season gets under way Friday, area teams are looking to pick up some steam heading into postseason play.
The Bremen Lions (3-4, 1-2 NSC) have taken some lumps this season, including last Fridayâ€™s disappointing 23-20 Homecoming loss to Northern State Conference foe Culver. Thatâ€™s left them on the wrong side of .500, and theyâ€™re hoping to get back to winning form at LaVille this week.
â€śWe honestly feel weâ€™re probably six or seven plays away from being 4-1, and thatâ€™s a tough spot to be at 2-3,â€ť said Bremen head coach Bob Holmes.
