WELL KNOWN INDIANA FAMILY'S LOCAL ROOTS RUN 60 YEARS DEEP

Since 1944, seeing “July” on the calendar meant the members of one branch of the Ball family of Indianapolis (think Ball canning jars and Ball State University) are gathered near Aubbeenaubbee Creek at the historic house once home to the Halcyon Boat House. This July is no exception, but there’s a bittersweet tinge to the breeze blowing off Lake Maxinkuckee here at 1746, as this is likely the family’s last July here.

Busy time on Lake Max

July 11, 2012

CULVER — Excessive temperatures last weekend forced a rare cancellation of Culver Summer Schools’ annual Moonlight Serenade — or, to be more prescise, the event was “postponed,” according to Culver Upper Camp assistant director Emily Ryman, who announced the postponement Saturday night.
“Due to the extreme heat conditions aboard the Ledbetter,” she wrote, including “steel hull boat which has been baking in the 100 degree sun for the past four days...we have cancelled the Moonlight Serenade for this evening. We hope to re-schedule it for a later date.”
