Funds sought for downtown Culver clock

August 24, 2012

Donations are being sought for an outdoor clock to be placed -- in conjunc­tion with this fall's down­town revitalization effort -- in downtown Culver at the southwest corner of Main and Jefferson Streets.

Not officially part of the grant-funded down­town revitalization work -- expected to commence in mid-September -- the clock is the result of a coordinat­ed effort between Culver's town council and utilities manager, the Culver Rede­velopment Committee, and private individuals includ­ing Verl Shaffer of Culver, whose interest in clocks and clockworks led to his suggestion of the clock.

Funding for part of the $7,900 total cost of the clock has been agreed to by the CRC, but private do­nations are sought to offset the balance of the cost.

The clock is a four-face street clock manufactured by Tuscumbia Iron Works of Alabama. It features neon lighting, cast bronze corners, and will be for­est green in color. "Culver Indiana on Lake Maxinkuckee" will be printed on the 24-inch dials.

Checks may be made out to the Town of Culver, and sent to Verl Shaffer, 1140 South Street, Cul­ver, IN, 46511.
