Purdue Extension: providing year-round service %\ 5$< %$/2*+ 6WDII :ULWHU Purdue University Extension, located at north edge of the Elkhart County 4-H Fairgrounds, 17746 CR 34, Goshen, isn’t just for summertime. The extension’s four educators — Anna Balas, Jeff Burbrink, Sthele J. Greybar and Robert Kelly, also the extension director — and support staff stay busy year-round providing educational and volunteer opportunities for children and adults through four divisions of programs: • Health and human services • Agriculture and natural resources • Community development • 4-H youth development Clubs The extension hosts 58 4-H clubs, which last year consisted of 2,833 kids; a yearly master gardener class with certification eligibility; and 17 Extension Homemakers clubs throughout the county, which accommodate 210 members. Thus the extension offers far more than is evident to the seasonal observer. “I think people see us around fair time and that is the main part of the 4-H experience,” said Balas. “It is an opportunity for youth to showcase the hard work they have been doing the entire year.” She said the children experience life opportunities “through club meetings and individual work at home and learning and other activities like camps and conferences. Some clubs meet year-round and some January through July.” The clubs are divided into two types: • General clubs, the membership of which is determined geographically. “People can choose their club by school district or by where they live.” • Subject specific clubs, which fall under dozens of categories. “The auto mechanics club is a new one,” Balas said. “They meet at a local auto repair business in Goshen. Another up and coming club is the fishing club,” Balas said. “We have a pond on the far side of the fairgrounds. We try to keep it stocked, and that is where the kids practice casting.” Many of the clubs involve making a project. Most of the kids choose to exhibit theirs at the county fair, though that is not mandatory for club participation. Clubs in mini 4-H, for children kindergarten through second grade, are free. Program fees for grades three through 12 are $15 a year (schol-

arships are available) and some clubs may charge dues as well. Educational Offerings Purdue University, via a grant, provides the extension with a community wellness coordinator and two nutrition education program assistants (NEPAs), who “work in the schools and the community providing nutrition education” emphasizing “higher-need and at-risk populations,” said Balas. One NEPA works with youth; the other concentrates on adults, giving educational presentations to businesses and organizations. The program also hosts regular classes and seminars, free to the public, on a variety of helpful topics. Upcoming events include: • “Train Your Brain: Ways to Keep Your Brain Healthy,” 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 21, Extension Office, or Zoom. • “Managing Your Debt When Your Income Drops,” 10 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 2, WorkOne, 430 Waterfall Drive, Elkhart, or Zoom. • “Planning for a Secure Retirement,” 10 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 9, Zoom. • “How to Be Proactive and Lower Your Risk of Diabetes,” 2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 11, Zoom. • “Savor the Flavor: Cooking with Herbs and Spices,” 1 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 18, Extension Office, or Zoom. • Volunteer community sewing, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesdays through May, Home & Family Arts Building, 4-H Fairgrounds. Contact Kris Peterson, (574) 238-2065 for more information. The extension office also maintains an inventory of hundreds of project manuals and workbooks for children interested in crafting a project. Now Hiring The extension is looking to hire two fulltime health and human services educators. To apply, visit extension.purdue.edu/careers/ current-openings or call the office at (574) 5330554 and ask for Brandy Cavanagh. Office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

KNOW YOUR NEIGHBOR

Wakarusa couple celebrates 20 years of marriage %\ /$85,( /(&+/,71(5 6WDII :ULWHU “This past July 6, my husband Derick and I celebrated 20 years of marriage,” stated Kim Lehman, Wakarusa. “The first year was tough, learning to live with a new person. I got pregnant in the sixth month of our marriage. But we learned to be a team. We focused less on getting the day-to-day chores done and

more on helping one another and making one another happy.” “It was funny how we met,” Derick Lehman added. “I was renting a house with two other guys that Kim knew from youth group. One of them had a girlfriend who was a friend of Kim’s. We went to Hana Yori’s, a Japanese restaurant in Mishawaka, to celebrate one of the guy’s birthdays and I sat by Kim. We hit it off immediately.”

“At the time, I didn’t like shrimp. So, I shared it with Derick,” said Kim Lehman. “I was ready for a larger commitment. And Kim was willing to date me. I decided I better lock this down before she changed her mind,” he chuckled. “I had dated a lot in high school. I even had a serious boyfriend in college, but Derick was the first guy I wanted to spend all of my time with,” she said. Kim Lehman was a liberal studies major at Bethel University, Mishawaka. “I was interested in youth ministry. I graduated college in May 2001. Derick and I were married July 6 of that year.” “I was attending First Mennonite Church in Nappanee,” Derick Lehman explained. “Kim was working with the youth at Nappanee Missionary Church. When we got married, we needed to find a home church that would suit both of us.” “We ended up at Wakarusa Missionary,” she said. “At that time, they were having small groups of youth that met in homes. Derick and I volunteered to host a group in our home.” The Lehmans have worked together in ministry since their marriage began. They were part of a group of 32 that planted Epic Church, Mishawaka. “We had a two-year commitment there and ended up staying 10 years,” Derick Lehman stated.

They are also part owners of the family store Big and Tall Outlet, Elkhart, that celebrated its 50year anniversary Sept. 13. “We tell our daughter Kennady that she’s a third-generation member of our family staff,” Derick said. Working together as a couple is not always smooth sailing, though. “Derick and I have learned not to do any very large projects together. We have different gifts and working styles.” “I used to be able to tell my wife when I was having trouble with a coworker. Now I go home to my coworker,” Derick Lehman remarked with a laugh. The Lehmans raise chickens, ducks and turkeys on seven acres of farmland. “We’re animal lovers,” she stated. “We have two Corgi dogs named Watson and Winston. We also have three cats named Alfie, Rory and Willson.” To celebrate their 20th anniversary, the family took a trip to Chicago. “Kim and I didn’t have any big plans. It was nice to get away with the girls.” She enjoys reading, sewing and crafting. He is a baseball fan who follows the Chicago Cubs.

Colorful people Believe it or not black is not the only color in this world. I am a Native Indian. We have a color. My Chinese and Korean friends, they have a color. Quit trying to drag everything through the mud.

Marxist system

Biden’s climate change czar, John Kerry, admitted this past January, saying, “We could go to zero (net-carbon emissions) tomorrow and it wouldn’t make a difference.” The United States is only responsible for approximately 15% of the world’s carbon emissions. He also said the U.S. carbon emissions increased by .04% from 1990 to 2019 and decreased 2% from 2018 to 2019. Meanwhile the Biden administration is incapable of addressing the obvious environmental destruction of the world’s actual polluter, China. Biden also has replaced our energy dependence with dangerous energy dependence. This will cost U.S. citizens hundreds of billions in increased energy costs.

A challenge

Not always true

The $100 billion challenge. As usually happens each year the U.S. Congress must pass a continuing resolution to expand the debt limit on the country’s credit card. Basically the U.S. spends more than it budgets. This seems to happen each year regardless of which party is in charge of the Congress. To start to remedy this, lets propose the $100 billion challenge. Both parties must suggest items to trim in the U.S. budget worth a total of $50 billion each. But here is the catch. The Republicans must suggest cuts in items they typically want such as tax advantages for rich people. The Democrats must also come up with $50 billion worth of cuts from items they typically support. Both parties must suggest $50 billion in savings from what they typically favor.

It’s not always what they say, but more what they don’t say. The average 30 minute TV show is only 15-17 minutes long. An hour show is only 30-33 minutes, the rest is half truth commercials. They prey on the public’s lack of intelligence about their product or services. The truthful facts are eliminated.Liberty Mutual leads the pact, next is reverse mortgages. Just because some millionaire movie star or sports star worth $100 million means absolutely nothing. There is no more “truth in advertising.” Who in their right mind would buy a car (or sell a car), insurance (or extended car insurance), or buy boxes of groceries delivered to your house, without seeing some kind of contract or agreement, is asking for trouble. Remember, nothing is free, everything in life has a price. And, why advertise prescription medicine? What does that say about our doctors and medical professionals?

Leaders lead so why do our political leaders in the House and Senate with their staffs have a vaccine exemption? I thought Biden was making all government workers get the shot? Maybe it’s because we don’t have an FDA-approved vaccine being administered in the U.S. The FDA played a bait and switch and approved the Comirnaty version of Pfizer drug which is not available in the U.S. Instead they extended the emergency use authorization for the Pfizer vaccine that’s available here so people actually think, OK now these things are FDA approved. They are not and they should be but the FDA isn’t telling us why. This FDA behavior is destroying our health care system by using these constant mandates. It’s typical of a Marxists run system where you do as I say not as I do.

Think about it You’re absolutely right. It is your choice and your right to have an abortion and it is between you and God.

In Oct. 5 edition in the Speak Out, there is one letter titled, “Hesitant,” and they quote between Dec. 14, 2020, and Sept. 3, 2021, a total of 15,506 deaths occurred from the vaccine. Then in a further letter, “Corruption,” that person says the Department of Health and Human Services alleges there have been at least 45,000 deaths connected with the COVID-19 shot. So I think they need to get their facts straight. And then a third letter says “No angel,” and what is in ‘the PAPER’ says Biden was the first to hand out money and I think the quote was Biden was not the first to hand out money because the following sentence said Trump did and I have proof in my checkbook. So people need to get their facts straight.

In reference to the Goshen Speak Out on the 21st of September one person is talking about we need a one party government instead of two party like we have because they seem to have trouble working together. You really need to rethink that. If you look at one party governments around the world, Russia is a one party government, China is a one party government, Mussolini was one party government in Italy during World War II, Khrushchev was one party government. They are all communist. People had no

Research first Researching before posting helps prove a point. According to bbc.com, there was only 654 miles of fencing only along our almost 2,000-mile southern border; 452 miles were reinforced or added to. Only 80 miles of actual fence was built and only 47 miles was actual wall. Remember “kids in cages?” Obama built those “cages” to separate children from adults that were criminel. Trump wasn’t

I want to reach out to whoever it was who gave me a blessing two times. It was late August on a Wednesday at the flea market and in October I was eating out at a restaurant in Shipshewana on CR 20 and SR 5 and when I asked for my bill the waitress handed me a note that said Jesus loves you so much. Whoever wrote that note paid my bill. And then the second time the blessing was on a Friday. I had lunch at the Hilltop in Middlebury. Again somebody paid for my meal. Neither person could have known my brother was very ill in a hospital in California, and ended up passing away. So these memories will always stay with me and I was so truly blessed and very emotional about these two wonderful things that happened to me.

It is a beautiful day out there. Go outside, smell the air, listen to the birds and be kind to one another.

I heard on 95.3 Michiana News report 9/30/21, 217 Democrats have opposed, since March, illegals be tested for COVID. It is brought to the Congressional floor for vote by Republicans, and the Democrats say “no” to testing illegals. So, please do not blame the unvaccinated legal U.S. residents for causing sickness. We can blame the Democrats who keep allowing the half million plus illegals come through the south borders and not test them, then allow them to travel where ever they wish. They are not stopped. The current administration says the “hospitals are full and the COVID variant is spreading rapidly.” Then we hear nurses (even pregnant ones), must get a vaccine or be “dismissed” from their jobs. Think about it. That makes no sense at all. (Get rid of people that you need with all the sickness in hospitals?) Check facts online and learn more.

I am appalled by the vote of the Elkhart County Council to deny a $3 million grant specifically aimed at the health of three minority groups, Hispanics, Blacks and Amish. We are all connected so better health for these groups means we all are healthier. Evidently a group of anti government people who know nothing were alerted about this meeting but it was not advertised widely so people who could advocate for it could be there. Dr. Bethany Waite, our county doctor, hired to protect the health of everyone was berated for two hours, called a Nazi and a liar by ignorant attenders. She is a highly qualified AfricanAmerican doctor and no one on the council came to her defense. Now she has resigned. Shame on the council and Elkhart County. Elkhart County made the national news for ignorance, racism and narrow mindedness. I could cry.

Out of your mind I could cry To the caller of “Bigger threat,” where you talk about Trump supporters being a bigger threat to America than the Taliban and al-Qaeda, you are out of your mind. Stop spreading ridiculous lies. Trump had nothing to do with Russia, and it’s been proven time and time again. Not like Commie Joe, who is doing everything he can to make Russia a super power, from giving them billions of dollars in oil from Germany and Europe after ending energy independence in the U.S. to giving the Taliban $83 billion dollars worth of top military technology which will all end up in the hands of Russia and China to steal the secrets and manufacture their own equipment. Stop with Jan. 6 people! There was no coup attempt, and Trump had nothing to do with the yahoos with Viking hats walking into the Capitol.

But don’t ask me to pay for your abortion and your mistakes. That’s something you should pay for, not me. Think about that. If you got to pay for it you might not want an abortion and you might be more careful.

State awards funds to support recent high school graduates

Indiana Commission for Higher Education, in partnership with the Indiana Department of Education utilized federal CARES Act funding to award $428,973 to 20 college, university and community partners to support the high school graduating class of 2021 as they transition to college. Area colleges and universities receiving grant money include: Goshen College, $24,623.23; Holy Cross College, $15,100; Huntington College, $24,999; and Trine University, $24,999. The Summer/Fall 2021 Learning Support Grant aims to help recent graduates who may have experienced learning loss due to school closures and the transition to online learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The grant will support collaborative efforts that focus on preparing students to be successful in college, especially those who are most vulnerable to learning loss. “After a challenging year for learners, it’s critical for recent high school graduates to have innovative support programs in place to set them up for success as

they transition to postsecondary education,” said Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education Teresa Lubbers. “Low-income, and Black and Hispanic students are less likely to meet early college success benchmarks, and the COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated these achievement gaps.” The grants support opportunities for: • Tutoring • Following the model of the Tennessee Tutoring Corps, stipends will be allocated for current college-aged students to tutor graduating high school seniors.

• College boot camp • Happening either virtually or in-person, “boot camp” activities will help students catch up and prepare for college-level coursework. Transitional Programming Transitional programming is geared toward easing the transition from high school to college. The commission has compiled a list of the state’s public, private and proprietary institution web pages, as well as guidance on COVID-19 and more at www. in.gov/che.

Five Medals at APPLIANCE TECH, INC. The Trace presents Over 25 Years Experience ——————————— Daniel Boone Servicing most brands of • Washers & Dryers • Ranges & Dishwashers

Experience this once-in-alifetime opportunity to learn firsthand about the life and exploits of the real Daniel Boone. Not the 1960’s TV-coonskin-capwearing Fess Parker’s “Dan’l Boone was a man, yes a big man …” Boone, but the man who discovered and opened the door leading to the nation’s original western expansion, the gateway through the Appalachian Mountains called the Cumberland Gap. Hear his life’s story personally from Steve Caudill, a direct descendent of Boone himself, who brings one of America’s first heroes to life. Caudill’s presentation begins at noon Saturday, Oct. 23. Caudill, a native of Winchester, Ky., and former police detective, will give a not-to-be-missed first-person presentation entitled: “An exciting journey of Boone’s capture by Shawnee while on a hunting adventure,” which will also include Boone’s escape and journey back to Kentucky on foot. Caudill has portrayed Boone for more than 15 years, but has been interested in the man versus the myth since childhood. He now lives down the road from the site of Boone’s actual Fort Boonesborough, just south

of Lexington, Ky. Caudill is endorsed by the Boone family as the official Boone portrayer. The Boone family is an organization of descendants, genealogists and historians dedicated to preserving the factual history of Daniel Boone. Five Medals at The Trace is a living history educational timeline event running 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 23, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 24. The event is located at Stone’s Trace, a privately-owned historical park just south of Ligonier, at the intersection of US 33 and SR 5. More than 180 reenactors and demonstrators perform and educate all weekend long and it’s a one-of-a-kind history lesson. Along with holiday shopping opportunities and early American crafts galore, visitors will find several food options, along with rest room facilities and plenty of parking. Five Medals at The Trace is presented by Five Medals Living History, Inc. a for-publicbenefit non-profit.

Keystone Club gives teens leadership opportunities ning for leadership posts and playing games to build community. While it may appear at times from the laughter it’s all fun and games, it’s far from that. “The goal is to teach them leadership, how to pour into the younger kids and how to encourage their peers,” said Leah Tuttle, Middlebury’s teen engagement supervisor. Right now they are working on their campaigns and brainstorming fundraisers for later in the year. They’re also developing price points for their concessions area, Tuttle said. That concessions area is a store the teens like Andrew Deal operate every afternoon. Other club members can purchase snacks and drinks as a fundraiser for the club. There is a core group of about eight members in Middlebury, but Tuttle hopes that number grows as the year progresses. The teens say they recognize what the Keystone Club can do for them as they prepare for life after high school. “This gives me volunteer hours for National Honors Society and it’s fun,” said sophomore Damian Godman. “I got to help out the zoo the other day and it helps me out academically, too.” “I like to help around the club. It’s helping me with social skills. I’m naturally a shy person but here I’m surrounded by people I trust,” said senior Olivia Elliott. Later in the school year, the group will do a community project or presentation the teens develop. That will be part of the national program requirement. And the fundraisers they do throughout the year, along with money raised by the concessions area, will help pay for a trip to the national Keystone conference.

Open auditions for ‘Miracle on 34th Street’ Elkhart Civic Theatre announces open auditions for its upcoming production of “Miracle on 34th Street,” at 7 p.m. Nov. 1 and 2 at the Bristol Opera House, 210 E. Vistula St. The production will be performed Dec. 16-19 at the Bristol Opera House and is directed by Dave Dufour, assisted by Demarée Dufour-Noneman. When a department store Santa claims he’s the real Kris Kringle, his case gets taken all the way to the Supreme Court, and a little girl’s belief makes the difference in the “miracle.” With live Foley effects and a score of holiday car-

ols, “Miracle on 34th Street” is a beloved musical that will melt even the most cynical of hearts. This version of “Miracle on 34th Street” is adapted from the 1947 Lux Radio Broadcast by Lance Arthur Smith with added original songs and arrangements by Jon Lorenz. It will be performed as a radio play, with most of the dialogue being read, although some memorization will be necessary. This will be the third radio play that Elkhart Civic Theatre has produced in recent Christmas seasons, and the casts always have a great time recreating the look, feel

and sound of old-time radio. Roles include: (“Radio Stars” named first): Kristofer Van Lisberg as Kris Kringle: Santa Claus. Singing optional F3-E4. Gracie Demarco as Susan Walker: Doris’s precocious daughter (Age 8). C4-C5 A child may be cast as Gracie or as an adult who can portray a child’s voice effectively. Cordelia Ragsdale as Doris Walker: Macy’s public relations expert. Alto/mezzo-soprano C4C#5. (Also plays Mother, Girl, and Others.) Grady Williams as Fred Gai-

ley: Lawyer, looking for love and a miracle. Baritone/tenor Bb3-G4. (Also plays Alfred and Others.) Wallace Ainsley as Male Character Actor. Versatile. Baritone B3-E4. (Plays drunken Santa, Shellhammer, Dr. Sawyer, Gimbel, R.H. Macy, Thomas Mara, Others.) Olivia Glatt as Female Character Actor. Versatile. Soprano C4-E5. (Plays Mortimer, second Mother, Miss Prong, Dr. Pierce, Nurse, Charley, Mrs. Mara, Tommy, Others.) Alex Mialdo (plays various characters to be determined). Bass/

baritone F2-E4. Numerous other characters, many of which will be doubled and/or tripled. Auditions will consist of readings from the script. Actors will be asked to sing as well. Scripts can be reviewed at the Bristol Opera House weekday afternoons by appointment, or can be emailed as PDF files to interested actors. Elkhart Civic Theatre auditions are open to everyone, and no fees are charged for participation in Elkhart Civic Theatre productions.

YFC leadership announces innovative collaboration Youth For Christ (www.yfc.net), a staple in the missional ministry community in America for 77 years, announces a new collaborative partnership with Bethel University in Mishawaka. Beginning in the fall of 2022, through one of their many youth outreach ministries, young people who join YFC’s staff or volunteer ranks will be able to enroll at Bethel University for an online program to earn a fully accredited associate’s or bachelor’s degree. Through this partnership, interns, staff and volunteers serving with Youth For Christ will be able to earn a college degree while continuing to stay involved with YFC’s various ministries and outreaches. In fact, by continuing to work with YFC, the student can apply their experience with the organization as college credit in this program. For YFC, this allows younger leaders to stay connected

with mentors, engaging the next generation and pursuing higher education at the same time. This unique collaboration began when YFC President and CEO Jacob Bland considered the possibility there was more the organization could be doing to cultivate new, young leaders. Bland stated, “We started thinking about the unique role we could play nationally to help broker partnerships that enhance YFC’s mission locally, as well as advance Christ’s great commission beyond YFC. Furthermore, we began to look at each objective in our strategic plan and ask if there’s a right collaborative partnership out there that could help catapult the mission to new heights, new growth and honor God. What’s clear to me is that God even uses conditions like a pandemic to push organizations to dream bigger and ask, ‘How can we find shared wins and

Time to order trees

%\ -()) %85%5,1. ([WHQVLRQ (GXFDWRU 3XUGXH ([WHQVLRQ (ONKDUW &RXQW\ There is starting to be a nip in the air, which means it is time to order trees from the 2022 Elkhart County tree sale. The sale is sponsored by the Elkhart County Soil and Water Conservation District and the Michiana Master Gardeners. Order forms for this popular program can be downloaded at https:// www.elkcoswcd.org/wp-content/ uploads/2022-Tree-Sale-OrderForm.pdf or you can pick it up in person at the Elkhart County Soil and Water Office, 59358 CR 7, south of Elkhart, or the Purdue Extension - Elkhart County Office (17746 CR 34, on the fairgrounds east of Goshen). Early birds who order and pay before Jan. 7 receive a 10% discount on the total dollar amount of the order. The last day to place orders is March 4. The trees will be delivered March 26, to the Sheep/Swine Building on the Elkhart County 4-H Fairgrounds, just in time for spring planting. The species being sold this season include American arborvitae, eastern white pine, Norway spruce, American beech, hackberry, northern red oak, sugar maple, tulip poplar, white oak, eastern red bud, white flowering dogwood and winterberry. They are sold in packs of five, 10, and 25, and there is a variety pack to encourage diversity of species on your property. We try to select tree species to sell that are long lived, not disease or pest prone, and are good for conservation and nature in general.

All the species being sold, with exception of the Norway spruce, are native to Indiana. While not native to our area, Norway spruce is a desirable replacement for blue spruce, which is plagued with several diseases and insect issues and is no longer recommended in the Midwest. Arborvitae, Norway spruce and white pine are commonly used as windbreak or privacy screenings and provide winter color and shelter for animals. Many of the hardwood species produce food for birds and other wildlife. Hackberry is one tree some of the readers may not be familiar with. You do not see them often in tree sales or nurseries or backyards. We had one near our home on my family farm. They generally grow to be tall, single trunked, majestically pyramid shaped tree and rarely drop branches. The leaves have a rough sandpaper feel to them. And while the leaves often have a wart-shaped gall on them which some people do not like, the gall does not result in health issues to the tree. Hackberry would make an excellent replacement in wooded areas where you have lost ash trees to the borers in recent years. The order form includes information on the growth habits, soil and light preferences, salt tolerance, and benefits of these plants. The seedlings are sold as bare root stock, so a bundle of 100 trees can easily fit in the trunk of most cars. Credit cards and checks can be used for payment. On pickup day, there will be information available on the planting and care of the trees.

better position YFC as generous partners in the kingdom?’” Time spent in thought and prayer led to YFC’s new partnership with Bethel University, a widely respected private university with Christian roots offering more than 50 areas of study in undergraduate and graduate degree programs. This innovative collaboration will provide opportunities for YFC’s young leaders to achieve a college degree at a discounted rate, opening doors for some students who previously could not afford the luxury of higher education. Bethel University’s Interim President Barbara K. Bellefeuille stated, “Bethel University has had a rich connection to Youth For Christ for many years. YFC’s decision to provide their already superbly trained staff with the opportunity to continue their work while earning a college degree from Bethel University — well that’s just brilliant! Bethel Uni-

versity gains motivated, missional students who will continue to transform every community group they touch for Christ. We couldn’t be happier to further our support of Youth For Christ, and we look forward to how God will use this path to raise up many future YFC staff members.” This announcement follows Bland’s recent declaration of his five-year vision for YFC leadership, in which he urges YFC management to invest in future leadership and culture to engage one million kids for Christ. Bland stated, “This is our pivotal moment to serve the church by creatively re-imagining youth ministry yet again. I believe the cultural conditions are right for us to experience the greatest youth revival our generation has ever seen. God has given us the right team to do this—and His hand is clearly on our mission. “Our strategic plan calls for an investment in our leaders. And I

pray that this partnership with Bethel University will help usher in an era of doing just that. There’s been evidence that the Lord has been in this from the very beginning. Christ is glorified through kingdom partnerships, and collectively we get to invest in the next generation.” YFC has chapters impacting thousands of communities across the nation who seek out and serve youth from all walks of life. Many teens are silently struggling through a wide variety of challenging issues — and through the ministry God empowers through YFC, they see the living power of a loving God. YFC trains its leaders in a proven, relational ministry model called 3Story, which encourages staff and volunteers to be good news while also sharing the stories of the good news of Jesus. It involves building relationships through the ups and downs of everyday life in order to lead people to Christ.

A long time dream becomes real %\ '(% 3$77(5621 (GLWRU ,Q &KLHI The idea of a “green room” or annex to the Heritage Park Stage on the Elkhart County Fairgrounds started with a little sparkle between herself and her daughter, Monica Gould, according to Rhonda Chupp. Following a 30-day fundraising effort, $66,000 has been raised to build the annex. A groundbreaking ceremony was held Wednesday, Oct. 13, to celebrate. The annex will be completed by the 2022 fair. The projected cost to build the annex is $60,000. The original hope was to raise $30,000. The actual fundraising campaign raised $41,000. The campaign also will be receiving $25,000 from the Elkhart County Community Foundation. Funds over the construction cost will be used for outdoor lighting, landscaping, potentially an additional sail for shade. “As you came alongside of us, you got the light and you shared the light and it became brighter and

brighter,” Chupp said referring to the dream and idea of adding the annex. Since the inception of the park stage, a recreational vehicle had been used as a place for park stage entertainers to change clothing, rest and cool off. However the RV use became dysfunctional this past fair. “We had a desire for a number of years for a better facility,” Chupp stated, as did her father, Herb Maust, who was instrumental in the park area. “It was evident now was the time. We had the desire, gave it some thought and a little hope … we shared the desire and need to other board members who came along side of us, offered to walk along, helping us, sharing ideas, drawing plans, fundraising, giving and encouraging words to cheer us on.” Michael Christofeno, 2022 fair board president, went back in time to the beginning of the park. He was on the original park committee, as fair board attorney, along with Maust. “There were buildings up here. Buildings that were 4-H buildings ... We tore all that down to make this pretty green space. When we originally talked about this, I remember Herb very vividly

It was agreed there would not be any food (stands) in the park, which is still true. “...It wasn’t long before we had acts out here and Herb was a master at that.” Christofeno noted an early hiccup was where entertainers could change their clothing. “Herb

Open house for new community center barn R. Yoder Construction, Nappanee, and the Lakeville Redevelopment Commission will host an open house ceremony from 4-7 p.m. Oct. 21, at the new Lakeville Community Center Barn located at 214 W. Patterson St., Lakeville, marking the grand opening of the new community center. Carol McDougal, the president of the Lakeville Redevelopment Commission, stated, “Our dream for ‘The Barn,’ which was hard to visualize in the beginning, has finally come to fruition and we are excited about being able to offer our newly-renovated building to the community! “The Barn is nestled near a

wooded area connected to Lakeville’s wetlands, which will lend itself to walking trails and possible future environmental studies. The venue creates a meeting space for a number of service groups, family gatherings, wedding receptions, education events, etc. “Our process began in 2016 with the purchase of an old storage barn. A state grant along with community donations helped to make the project possible. The expertise and knowledge of R. Yoder Construction helped us transform an old rundown barn into a beautiful, welcoming place for everyone to enjoy. R. Yoder Construction saw our vision and made it a reality!”

thought they should come out here (in the grass area) and change and that it would be no problem … .” Ideas were discussed of a location for “green room” until a decision was made to place a trailer behind the stage. “We did that for a lot of years. Herb would bring it up every so often … what about a green room …. “This ends up being like many of our projects. A journey we get to finish tonight ... Rhonda, Monica, thank you. Herb would be very proud of you as we are. … When you get right down to it folks, that’s what makes us great – the ability that we have to bring the community together to do something together.” The annex will provide space for dressing rooms during fair and meeting space for 4-H groups, fair board members and rentals outside of the annual fair.
