PLYMOUTH â The Plymouth Eagles Lodge 1900 is hard at work contributing to the yearâs state project â raising enough money to buy an ambulance for Riley Hospital for Children.
Since the clubâs 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. Itâs 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.

When CollegeChoice CD called the Plymouth resident to tell her sheâd won tickets, they learned she had knitted or crocheted 11 scarves for the Super Bowl XLVI Super Scarves Project.
