Culver EMS seeks volunteers for benefit of entire community

April 28, 2012

Of the approximately 700 survivors of the April 12, 1912 sinking of the RMS Titanic ship, only one would eventually settle in Indiana, and August Wennerström made Culver his home -- a home he loved so much he named one of his children Culver.
