Local club tackles fundraising project for Riley's

December 19, 2011

PLYMOUTH — The Plymouth Eagles Lodge 1900 is hard at work contributing to the year’s state project — raising enough money to buy an ambulance for Riley Hospital for Children.
Since the club’s fiscal year began in June, it has raised $1,800, which is more than half its goal contribution of $3,000. All of the Eagles clubs in Indiana will raise money for a $250,000 ambulance. It’s worth the high price tag, however, according to Plymouth Eagles secretary and president of District 4, Brandon VanVactor, who says the ambulance is equipped for surgery mid-transport.

December 18, 2011

For the few in Culver who haven't yet noticed, the Lions Club's community sign -- on Lake Shore Drive adjacent to the depot-train station the club calls home -- has had a major renovation, and is now completely electrical, with "rotating" messages, the date and time, and a much easier method of text-changing for Mike Overmyer, who operates the new technology.

Acadmies clinic hoped to be a ‘win’ for employees, school alike

December 17, 2011

The largest employer in Marshall County is now also a health care provider for its many employees, and Culver Academies Human Resources Director Diane Avery couldn’t be happier.

Avery says the genesis of the idea began two years ago, when she read an article about medical practice coming full circle and the rebirth of a popular trend in the 1960s for large organizations to host onsite health clinics for their staff. With today’s rising health care costs, she says, institutions such as the Academies are seeking ways to keep those costs down.
