Weekend Work

Dear All,

Wanted to make sure everyone had the latest that has been put out by the Indiana Department of Transportation on road work that is to be occurring this weekend.  There are two project that may affect your route, but also affect other traffic due to detours and people taking a different way to get to where they are going.  Please look over the map and read the closures and lane restrictions that will be happening and plan accordingly.

Hope this is helpful and have a great weekend!

P.S.  Don’t forget that we will be collecting school supplies at Eagle Creek Park (56th Street Gate, 71st Street Gate, and Earth Discovery Center) until August 11th.  You do not need to go into the park to donate, just drive up to the gatehouse and drop off.  We have already received a lot, but definitely need more.  These will be divided up among the 11 schools that serve the children of District 6.  Please give generously and help boys and girls who come to school with no supplies have the needed “tools” to do their best.
