Funds sought for downtown Culver clock
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.
