NOBLESVILLE HIRES DR. DANIEL HILE AS NEW SUPERINTENDENT Dr. Hile and his family recently relocated to Noblesville and love the small-town feel it has to offer. His daughter is off to college in the fall, and his son will attend Noblesville High School. He says the district is already working at a high level, thanks to his predecessor Dr. Beth Niedermeyer. “I’m stepping into an outstanding program already,” Dr. Hile says. “As I settle in, I plan to meet everyone, observe and listen. Obviously, I hope to leave my mark on the district, but more than anything, I want to continue growing and building on the success already happening here.” Dr. Hile rose to the top of the list of candidates due to his approachable demeanor, trustworthiness, problem-solving, and communication skills. He also brings extensive experience in community engagement and financial management. He was chosen by members of the Indiana Association of Public School Superintendents as the District II Superintendent of the Year for 2022. He says he was humbled to be selected by a committee of his peers.

“I’m hoping to continue the practice of being accessible by having open hours with the community,” Dr. Hile says. “We’ll have more information on that soon. When people see me out in the community, I hope they stop and introduce themselves. I want people to see me as approachable and easy to communicate with regarding any issue.”

Noblesville residents will notice a new face walking the halls of the schools and shopping at the Noblesville Farmers Market. Dr. Daniel Dr. Hile graduated from Indiana University with a bachelor’s Hile was recently named as the next superintendent of Noblesville degree in music education, earned his master’s degree in education Schools. Dr. Hile comes to Noblesville from a long history with administration from Indiana University-Fort Wayne, and his Ph.D. Smith-Green Community Schools in Churubusco, IN. in educational leadership from Purdue University. Dr. Hile started his teaching career as a music educator. After teaching for eight years, he felt compelled to serve students in a different capacity. He went on to serve as an assistant principal, principal and superintendent. Smith-Green Community Schools has about 1,200 students, while Noblesville Schools has 10,500. “There is no way to say it other than it is going to be a change,” Dr. Hile says. “I’ll have more students, staff and parents, but from an education perspective, the focus is still exactly the same. The goal is to give our children the best experience possible, to hire the best teachers and to ensure all of our decisions are focused on what is best for Noblesville children.”

He hopes to get involved in many community initiatives such as the Noblesville Rotary Club and the Noblesville Chamber of Commerce. He says he immediately felt a connection to the Noblesville community. “In my times visiting the area, the first thing that became apparent was the close-knit community,” Dr. Hile says. “That was very important to me. It’s a much bigger district than where I came from, but it still has a very caring feel.” For more information, visit noblesvilleschools.org/Page/7467.

STRONG BODIES, STRONG MINDS KIDSTRONG OPENS IN NOBLESVILLE

Sharps, asking how they got their daughter to become so fearless and independent. The couple realized they had created something that many kids need, so they founded KidStrong. “I thought it was the coolest thing ever, not only from a fitness perspective but also in terms of providing parents with a solid guideline of where kids should be and what they should be working on,” Snowden says. “That really hit home for me as I was a new parent who craved guidance, and they provided things for you to work on with your kids.”

Writer / Christy Heitger-Ewing Photographer / Justin Sicking

Not long after having a baby with her husband Bradley, Samantha Snowden saw something on social media that piqued her interest. It was a child development training center called KidStrong that focuses on brain, physical and character development for kids who range in age from 12 to 14 months to 11 years. It originated in Louisville, Kentucky, in 2015 by Matt and Megin Sharp after they noticed that

their 15-month-old daughter Ella seemed to crave challenges when it came to exploring her world. Nothing in the market worked for her so they started building things like rope climbs in their home in order to inspire her. She responded positively and was off and running - literally. At just 2 years old, she was crushing the monkey bars at the playground and jumping boldly, unafraid of trying new things. Other children naturally gravitated to her, and their parents made a beeline to the

Snowden, who had always wanted to own her own business, decided to open a KidStrong franchise in the Indianapolis area. Currently, 32 franchises exist and 20 are in presale status across the country. “I loved the idea of being able to bring this to my home state,” says Snowden, who convinced her previous boss, Manuel Torres, to join her in the venture and become her business partner. They signed last July, and KidStrong in Noblesville is set to open this month.

The community response to the center has been tremendous. Those with younger kids are eager to get started, and those with older children lament the fact that such a program didn’t exist when their children were younger.

work, but they are cheered on even if they don’t hit that milestone. “We can stay after class and work on whatever they are struggling with,” Snowden says. “The sooner you can get them to overcome obstacles and things that are hard, it instills the grit and the confidence that I think generations right now just don’t really have.”

KidStrong is classified as a milestone accelerator, which means that they put kids in classes as soon as they are independent enough to walk across a room. This membership-based program enables students to attend one 45-minute class per week led by two professional KidStrong coaches. Each month they offer milestone work associated with their three pillars of focus (brain, physical and character development).

Adults naturally get a boost in confidence once they achieve a goal or overcome a challenge. For instance, in fitness, many adults tend to feel good when they run a faster mile or lift a heavier weight. The problem is that kids can’t really get involved in organized sports until they’re 5 years old.

“We have a programming team of child development experts who do research to determine where kids need to be in order to be as successful as possible,” Snowden says. “We implement that into our curriculum and push it out month over month.” At KidStrong, they have a “no quit” mentality. That doesn’t mean these kids are in boot camp. They are pushed at a comfortable level to complete the milestone

“If we can start that mentality of, ‘Hey, there’s an obstacle in front of me and I need to overcome it,’ kids will become stronger and more confident,” Snowden says. Parents certainly agree. Anna Parmley says her 3-year-old son recently went up to another boy in a doctor’s office waiting room, introduced himself, and started playing.

“He never would have known how to introduce himself or had the confidence to greet a peer without KidStrong,” she says. This summer Snowden and her team will offer a KidStrong camp from July 25 to 29, as well as a two-day camp on August 1 and 2. They’ll offer many more camp options as the location gets established. Next year they’ll have camps all summer long. In addition, she has plans to build up to six more KidStrong centers in the Indianapolis region in the future. Snowden stresses that putting time and energy into your children’s extracurricular activities serves to better them in the long run. “Our goal is not to make kids great at KidStrong,” she says. “It’s to make kids great at life. The whole reason we exist is to give kids the confidence and leadership skills to be able to go out into the world and be great at whatever they want to do.” KidStrong is located at 9510 East 146th Street, Suite 102 in Noblesville. For more information, call 812-366-2135 or visit kidstrong.com/noblesville. To learn more about this location and future locations, follow them on social media.

any people would agree that downtown Indy’s Mass Ave just keeps getting better. Not only is the five-block area full of shops, theaters, restaurants, bookstores and art galleries, but with the creation of the Bottleworks District, the public has even more opportunities to engage in fun artistic endeavors, awesome shopping experiences and tasty fare. The Bottleworks Hotel was recently ranked by Tripadvisor as one of the hottest new hotels in the world. The Bottleworks District also has the Garage Food Hall, which features 20 different fast-casual restaurants. Though the existing food selections are delicious, one thing that was decidedly missing from the mix was an option for nice, sit-down dining. That’s where The Fountain Room comes in. “I think people are super excited to have another sit-down choice in that area,” says Blake Fogelsong, owner and director of operations for Clancy’s Inc. Although there is Modita, a Cunningham Restaurant Group concept that offers Asian fare with a unique spin, The Fountain Room offers a wide variety of upper-scale American cuisine. “The Fountain Room is a great addition that I think is going to fit in really well,” Fogelsong says. Located on the lower level next to the hotel entrance, The Fountain Room offers steaks, seafood and burgers. The steakhouse-style menu also includes sandwiches, salads and sliders, as well as delicious entrees like meatball Manhattan, and fried chicken and dumplings. At The Fountain Room every item is taken up a notch to elevate one’s palate. The Wagyu burger, for instance, features an eight-ounce patty with pimento cheese, Nueske’s slab bacon, breadand-butter pickles, lettuce, tomato, onion jam and house-cut bacon. Appetizers include brie brûlée, Swedish meatballs, pimento poppers, tuna ceviche and shrimp cocktail, to name a few. Guests are invited to enjoy mouth-watering desserts including a banana split, sticky date cake and grasshopper pie, as well as after-dinner drinks like espresso martinis. 10 / NOBLESVILLE MAGAZINE / SEPTEMBER 2022 / TownePost.com

The bar menu is equally exciting. Everyday specials include Bourbon and Cola (Woodford Reserve and Coca-Cola), the Cape Codder (Wheatley vodka and cranberry) and the G&T (Fords gin and Q tonic). They also sell beer and wine.

The name was inspired by the building’s space, where Coca-Cola products were made back in the 1930s when the location served as the Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Indianapolis, the largest Coca-Cola bottling plant in the world.

Inspiration for The Fountain Room stems from visions of a retro supper-club vibe. The building, originally constructed in 1920, was designed in an Art Deco style. Local architecture firm PHANOMEN Design followed suit when designing The Fountain Room and selecting all of the finishes.

“We felt like coming out of the pandemic, there would be this big pent-up demand for an elegant dining experience like this, so we wanted to create a 1920s-style concept,” Fogelsong says.

“Repetitive geometric patterns and timeless millwork details are paired with texture and color combinations that are meant to give visitors a sense of nostalgia for times past,” says Brandi Haney, a designer with Phanomen Design. “Think of a traditional Art Deco dining establishment that also functions as a social club. High class, yet affordable. Formal, yet still relaxed.”

The restaurant seats 160. They also put in a mezzanine level that will seat up to 55, making it ideal for private events like banquets and rehearsal dinners. Since so many couples are opting to tie the knot at the Bottleworks, the mezzanine level will provide a perfect spot for celebrations. They offer catering as well. Fogelsong is the director of operations for Clancy’s, owners of the local Grindstone restaurants and Michaelangelo’s Italian

Bistro. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic and all the turmoil it caused for restaurants everywhere, he’s been pleased that, through the past several years, they have opened one new restaurant per year. He understands how excited people get when new concepts and flavors enter an area. The grand opening is scheduled for July 18, and he and his team are eager to welcome the community with open arms. “People are super excited about this concept in particular,” says Fogelsong, who is proud of his team of employees who always do a great job of making guests feel at home. “I’m just so happy that coming out of the pandemic, we are operating stronger as a company than ever before. To get through COVID and be able to offer a new restaurant like this is really exciting.” The Fountain Room is located at 830 Massachusetts Avenue, Suite 1480 in Indianapolis.

BAGI CELEBRATES 100 YEARS Writer/ Julie Yates Photography Provided

The Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis (BAGI) is celebrating 100 years of providing key networking and education opportunities to hundreds of its members and the citizens of Central Indiana. The organization was created in 1922 and serves Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Johnson, Madison, Marion, Morgan and Shelby County, respectively. Throughout the years, its mission has been to promote the region’s new-home construction, and to communicate the homebuilding industry’s standards, practices and happenings. “BAGI is believed to possibly be the oldest organized builder group in the United States,” says Steve Lains, Chief Executive Officer of BAGI. “It was called Indianapolis Home Builders until 1969 when the name

was changed to the Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis, or more commonly known as BAGI. The name change reflected the organization’s growing reach and today, we have more than 500 members that consist of the area’s leading industry experts.” Members of BAGI include home builders and remodelers, as well as contractors in trades such as electrical, plumbing, cabinetry, concrete, architectural design and flooring, just to name a few, and industry-specific professionals in real estate, insurance and more. Members are able to include countless benefits that help them network with other industry professionals, increase their knowledge of important insight and promote their business. One way the organization promotes its members is through the annual Home-ARama event, a highly anticipated, luxury home show in some of Central Indiana’s 14 / SEPTEMBER 2022 / TownePost.com

CREATIVE COMMUNITIES HENKE DEVELOPMENT GROUP BUILDS DISTINCTIVE LIVING ENVIRONMENTS

Writer / Christy Heitger-Ewing Photographer / Justin Sicking

Traditional commercial or residential developers see properties with terrain changes, sprawling woods and rolling hills, and often shake their heads, opting instead to build on flat fields. The team at Henke Development Group, however, seek out such properties because they are both beautiful and unique. That’s precisely what they’ve done at The Club at Chatham Hills, a private, residential golf course community in Westfield that offers unique topography of creeks, rolling hills, woods, lakes, and two Pete Dye-designed golf courses (the nine-hole Executive Course and 18-hole

Championship Course). “We approach every project from a personal standpoint, asking who is going to be living at a certain development - empty nesters? People with young families?” says Betsy Garfield, co-founder of Henke Development Group, who runs the company with her father Steve and brother Brad. The answers to those questions drive the amenities, which Henke heavily invests in. The Club at Chatham Hills includes amenities that are unheard of in traditional club settings. For instance, the 65,000-square-foot clubhouse includes a four-lane bowling alley, two-story fitness TownePost.com / SEPTEMBER 2022 / 17

center with a spin studio, tennis facilities, indoor pool, and outdoor pool with cabanas as well as a swim-up bar (the only one in the state). They took it a step further by considering seasonality and included a sledding hill, bonfire pits, and pop-up igloos for winter dining. In addition, the clubhouse has two restaurants. Chats on the Hill boasts yummy breakfast offerings such as made-to-order omelets, avocado toast, chorizo breakfast burritos, fresh fruit and granola. Lunch and dinner items include burgers, nachos, wings, wraps and fresh salads. Hamilton’s Bar & Grille, an upscale sports bar, offers Chilean sea bass, rib eye, pastas and vegan

Moving to a community like this, however, gives them a built-in social scene since this community tends to be socially driven. For instance, people assemble to play tennis, pickleball, swim or attend an event at the club. of reasons, not the least of which is the breathtaking view. In addition, many residents love that they can buy a lot for which they don’t have to maintain much of the yard, because it may overlook 10 acres of perfectly manicured grass, wildlife wetlands or woods. Having amenities on-site or close by is key in today’s fast-paced world. The developers recognize that people appreciate being able to reclaim precious time in their day by not having to travel far to enjoy such amenities. “It goes back to us thinking about how our residents spend their days,” Garfield says. “We have busy families with kids involved in travel sports, and they love being two minutes from Grand Park and also being able to meet neighbors at the club for lunch. We also have grandparents who bring their grandchildren here to go swimming.”

options. They also have a great wine list and a number of local draft beers. They work with local purveyors to serve the freshest food possible. “We are frequently asked if everybody who lives here golfs, and the answer is no,” Garfield says. “Only about 40% of our residents on our courses are golf members.” These lots are highly desirable for a number

It’s not unusual for people to choose to relocate to be closer to grandkids. Garfield has seen a spike in this population, particularly following COVID-19. Residents tell her, “You’re too young to have experienced this yet, but when your kids get older you’ll see that it’s harder to make friends when you move somewhere. You don’t have the schools, the soccer teams, the football tailgates and all of that to connect you with other people.”

In September, Chatham Hills will host Home-A-Rama for the third time. This year’s event features seven elite homebuilders - Wedgewood Building Company, Old Town Design Group, Sigma Builders, Christopher Scott Homes, Carrington Homes, BBG Construction, and Scott Campbell Custom Homes. These $2 million homes are between 5,500 and 8,200 square feet. Though most are already sold, a couple of lots are still available. Andre and Erica Porter had been considering adding a pool and other features that their kids would enjoy to their existing 2018 Home-A-Rama home. When they reviewed options, however, they decided against adding the features to the existing home, and instead opted to work with Carrington Homes on its 2022 HomeA-Rama home, where the features would be built into their plans. “In addition to the new features, we were drawn in by the unique floor plan and the fantastic tree-lined view of the golf course from the backyard,” Erica Porter says. “Of course we were pleased to find the new home opportunity in Chatham Hills as we have built many friendships here, and our kids love the neighborhood.” Currently, The Club at Chatham Hills has more than 450 residents. There are some beautiful larger lots near Home-A-Rama that are now available, many with trees or

cul-de-sac settings. Chatham Village is getting ready to open across from the clubhouse. This newest section, where construction on home sites will start this summer, will offer front-porch-style living with tree-lined streetscapes, lowmaintenance lots, and white picket fences running along the front yards. “It has been carefully designed to incorporate details that give a cute and welcoming feel,” Garfield says. “It will feature classic American architecture styles, with alley-load garages on the north side and custom homes on the south portion.” These homes will start around $550,000. Homes throughout Chatham Village and Chatham Hills range up to $3m+. Henke Development Group has plans to develop a retail commercial village on a 12-acre lake, which will offer opportunities for water recreation such as fishing and kayaking. That’s not been a possibility on the lakes near the golf courses, due to the possibility of errant golf balls.

The Home-A-Rama preview party will take place on September 21. The HomeA-Rama team is also planning a couple of fun theme nights such as Ladies Night. Show dates are as follows: September 22 to 25, September 29 to October 2, and October 6 to 9.

SENIOR LIVING DESIGNER MAKES DIFFERENT PIECES FIT Story Provided

Interior designer Maria Ramirez takes the same approach to homes that she took to the puzzles she spent hours building in her room as a little girl. “It’s all about putting different pieces together and making sure they fit,” she said. “My job is a bit tricky because it requires mixing a traditional, older feel with a modern aesthetic.”

INSTALLING GRAB BARS

These are especially important for helping residents maintain balance in the bathroom and shower.

MAINTAINING SMOOTH FLOORING THROUGHOUT THE HOME Doing away with rugs not only prevents trips and falls, but maintaining the same flooring height and creating smooth transitions from hardwood or tile to carpet make living spaces feel more open and free flowing.

As the corporate interior designer for CarDon & Associates, a Bloomington, Ind.based senior living community management company, Maria designs living spaces to appeal across generations and accommodate BRIGHTENING THINGS UP people who are downsizing. Vibrant lights and colors generally make spaces appear bigger. These elements are “A lot of people who are downsizing also essential for the aging eyes of CarDon’s get scared that they won’t be able to fit residents. That’s why Maria suggests optimal everything they want,” she said. “But I overhead lighting as well as reading lamps create spaces where they don’t have to and floor lamps.

These are a few steps she throughout CarDon’s communities. makes sure are included during construction: TownePost.com / SEPTEMBER 2022 / 25

“When you transition to an apartmentstyle life, you might think you’re missing out on your old household items and luxuries, but you can still enjoy them in the amenity spaces around you,” she said. “For example, let’s say you had a piano in your house — you might walk down the hall from your apartment and find one in the activity room. In the Memory Care unit of our Altenheim community, residents have a multifunctional theater area right outside of their rooms where they can watch their favorite movies and shows on a large TV as well as play card games and engage in other fun activities. So, it’s like a living room — they just have to take a little trip to get there!” Maria often finds herself taking trips to many different CarDon communities, which is why the organization is gearing up to showcase her ventures on a regular basis through social media. As she said: “We thought this would be a fun way to let staff and residents know, ‘Here’s where Maria is this week,’ and for me to say, ‘Hey, I’m coming your way and working to enhance the spaces where we all live, work and play.’ ”

BLOOMINGTON PACKS A PERFECT ROAD-TRIP PUNCH Writer / Renee Larr Photography Provided

With the cost of air travel rising and the risk of contracting COVID-19, many people are trying to find alternatives to flying. Long weekend road trips are becoming a more cost-effective way to get away. Bloomington offers scenic views, outdoor adventures, and dynamic arts and food. “Obviously, Bloomington is home to Indiana University so IU football is always a great idea when visiting the city,” says Erin White, director of leisure marketing and media for Visit Bloomington. “We also have the 4th Street Festival of the Arts and Crafts, the 10th Annual Kiwanis Indiana Balloon Festival, and many other festivals all fall long.” Bloomington draws people in with its cultural diversity, and is home to more than 350 different restaurants including more than 80 international restaurants. Foodies will love dining on 4th Street, which is lovingly referred to as international restaurant row.

26 / SEPTEMBER 2022 / TownePost.com

“You’ll find more than a dozen houses that have been converted into international restaurants,” White says. “You can find Tibetan, Turkish, Indian, Afghan, Korean and much more in Bloomington.” If you want outdoor adventure, look no further than Monroe Lake. It’s Indiana’s largest land-bound body of water with more than 11,000 surface acres. Nature lovers will find more than just water activities at the lake. “Monroe Lake is a fantastic place for folks to spend time,” White says. “We have three boat rental companies on the water that provide all sorts of personal watercraft including jet skis, kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, pontoon boats, deck boats, and double-decker boats complete with a slide. For those leaf peepers and folks who want to take in the scenery of the Hoosier National Forest, the lake is a great way to check out the fall foliage, and see bald eagles and other natural wildlife that exists in the area.” The city offers traditional lodging like hotels and motels, along with boutique inns and quaint bed and breakfasts. Hotels situated


downtown are within walking distance to the restaurant and bar scene. Many of the bed and breakfasts are still close to downtown but are a little closer to campus. Bloomington offers tons of family-friendly activities for the kids and kids-at-heart. “We’re home to lots of unique, familyfriendly attractions and experiences,” White says. “WonderLab Museum is a great hands-on children’s science center located in the heart of downtown Bloomington. It’s a great place to spend a few hours with

the family. Hoosier Heights is an indoor climbing facility, so if your kids are really rambunctious and need to expend some energy, spending a couple of hours at Hoosier Heights is a fun way to get the whole family out and get them active. We also have hundreds of miles of trails. Parents can throw bikes in the car and utilize the B-Line Trail as well.” White says Bloomington is a great option for folks wanting to escape the monotony of their own community.

For years Kelly Goshorn had been eager to transform her 20x16 back porch into a true four-season sunroom by installing quality custom-made windows. Her project required giant windows on all three sides. She didn’t want to see a seam in the middle of a double-hung window, so she requested one-pane glass with crank handles that open vertically rather than horizontally. “I like to look out my backyard at the

cardinals so I wanted the visibility,” she says. “In total, I had 17 odd-shaped windows that I needed to special order.” She invited several companies to come to her house and provide a quote. Some of them didn’t seem to grasp Goshorn’s vision. One did, however. “When Scott Dorrell with Hometown Window and Door came out, he immediately understood what I wanted,” Goshorn says.

30 / NOBLESVILLE MAGAZINE / SEPTEMBER 2022 / TownePost.com


This is why an initial consult is so important when shopping for windows. “Window projects aren’t something you do a bunch of times in your life so you want to pick a company you can trust who will educate you and guide you through all your options,” says Dorrell, sales manager with Hometown Window and Door. He notes that not every consultation results in a sale, and that’s okay. “Sometimes we find while going through a consultation that we aren’t the best fit,” he says. “We’re more concerned with helping people navigate home improvements.” Hometown Window and Door is a small boutique Andersen dealership servicing Indiana. Andersen is the oldest window manufacturer in America. As a full-line Andersen dealer, they offer more options than any other standard window company. “We don’t try to tell you how what we have is going to be best for you,” says Joe Bishop, design consultant for Hometown Window. “Instead, we find the best fit for you with what we have.” The Hometown team, all certified installers, believe that Andersen makes the best products in the Midwest, and that’s backed with a quality installation. “You can sell a wonderful product, but if you can’t put it in right, that doesn’t really mean anything,” says Andy Brown, GM at Hometown Window. “We take a lot of pride in the fact that Hometown is a familyowned and operated company, delivering quality products to consumers. From the sales process to the finishing touches, we make sure clients have a perfect install.” Hometown Windows, a full in-house team, has been in the industry a long time. “Cumulatively, it’s crazy how much knowledge we have in this business,” says Dorrell, noting that they provide an expert presentation before helping clients find a product that fits their needs. Bishop asks his clients a series of questions TownePost.com / SEPTEMBER 2022 / NOBLESVILLE MAGAZINE / 31


“ THE HOMETOWN WINDOW TEAM EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. THE WAY THEY TRIMMED IT ALL OUT ADDED A LOT OF VALUE TO MY HOME. I’M TICKLED PINK WITH THE END RESULT.” — KELLY GOSHORN

to determine what’s most important to them. For instance, some people’s main concern is energy efficiency while others care more about the design aesthetic. In some cases, clients are looking for an overall improvement in a couple of different areas. Or perhaps they just want something that’s easier to use. “We only figure out their needs and wants by asking the right questions,” Bishop says. Hometown Windows has more options than any other standard window company. As a full-line Andersen dealer, they have five different windows that Andersen makes. Within each of those lines are additional options. “In the final analysis, I don’t really care about the windows,” he says. “I care about the customer being happy with what they’re getting because if they don’t get what they want or are trying to accomplish, I’m not doing my job.”

Whether you’re purchasing one door or 100 windows, the quality process is the same. They offer a full-frame installation as well as replacement style inserts. This means that they have the ability to go down all the way to the rough opening, which is ultimately going to give the customer better energy efficiency and they are not going to lose any glass with a new window. “When you do an insert window, which is what a traditional replacement is, ultimately you’re putting a smaller window with a frame inside of the original window frame,” Bishop says. “While it’s quicker and easier, it also requires a lower level of installation. The end result for the customer is less efficiency as well as loss of glass, sometimes as much as three or four inches. There’s really only a handful of people who can offer that style of installation.” Dorrell stresses that you don’t have to be ready to jump on a project just because you set up a free consult.

The Stage Is Set POET APE PRODUCTIONS TO PRESENT “OUR TOWN” IN DOWNTOWN NOBLESVILLE

with two great groups, Nickel Plate Arts and the City of Noblesville, to produce Thornton Wilder’s ‘Our Town,’ in the south alley of downtown Noblesville. I’m a born and bred son of Noblesville.” Holbrook has been thrilled with his work with Poet Ape Productions.

A Noblesville native is bringing his unique theater vision to his hometown, and hopes everyone will enjoy his upcoming project.

“Poet Ape Productions was founded back in February of this year but has been percolating in my head for a while,” Holbrook says. “I dipped my toes into producing back in 2018 with a production called ‘Mercury Hamlet,’ and after that short but successful run, I took some time to collect myself and figure out what’s next. Then the pandemic hit, which gave the ideas more time to percolate. Once the world started to look something like normal, I saw that the moment was now or never, and went ahead with incorporating Poet Ape Productions.” Holbrook is grateful to Nickel Plate Arts and the City of Noblesville for giving him the chance to produce “Our Town” in the heart of Noblesville.

James Holbrook, founder of a Chicago-based production company called Poet Ape Productions, says he is particularly looking forward to his next production.

“I was connected to Nickel Plate through a longtime neighbor and family friend, and also there is the fact that Mayor Chris Jensen and I have known each other since our early days growing up together,” Holbrook says. “So the timing turned out to be right to bring this production to life.”

“Poet Ape Productions is producing our first show this September in Noblesville,” Holbrook says. “We are working in conjunction

Holbrook believes “Our Town” is a wonderful play to bring to the people of Noblesville.

“The production entails a simple request to the community and the City of Noblesville - to see your neighbors, community and city with a new sense of curiosity,” Holbrook says. “We hope audience members will, for the first time they are with us, suspend their assumptions of what they think they know, to see with unimpeded eyes what they might not have seen before.” Holbrook’s idea for the production came from a walk around downtown Noblesville in 2015. “The alleyways had just been activated, and I, as I often do when I’m at home, was walking around downtown reminiscing about my hometown,” Holbrook says. “I was walking down the north alley next to old Kirk’s Hardware, and when I reached Kirk’s backdoor I was struck in a way I never had been before. Here was this entrance I had seen numerous times before and never paid much attention to, that was now a living piece of Noblesville history. The modern world was buzzing by in front of the building, and the ghosts of every worker who had ever entered this door just to go to work seemed to be looking back at me. It was this feeling I wanted to capture with our production.”

The Future of Work 1/4 PAGE AD

Tickets for “Our Town” are available now. “Walk-up tickets will always be available the day of the performance,” Holbrook says. “Online sales will begin August 26 at www.poetapeproductions.com. We hope everyone can join us September 29 to October 8 in the south alley of historic downtown Noblesville.” Holbrook would like to hear from the public about “Our Town” and Poet Ape Productions, and can be reached at jholbrook@ poetapeproductions.com.

MYSTIC IMAGES TATTOO HAS AWARD-WINNING PROFESSIONALS Writer / Alli Donovan Photographer / Walker Photography

With more than 25 years of experience tattooing, Adam Harber has made a name for himself and his business in Noblesville, Indiana. In the heart of the town, located off of 10th and Clinton St., Harber operates a tattoo and piercing shop called Mystic Images Tattoo, Inc. This studio is a fullservice tattoo and piercing parlor that has award-winning professionals certified in piercings, cover-ups, portraits, and more. Harber began tattooing in 1996. He worked in 13 other tattoo shops throughout Indiana before deciding to take a step back and 38 / NOBLESVILLE MAGAZINE / SEPTEMBER 2022 / TownePost.com


reevaluate his own goals. It was those years of experience that made Harber want to open his own tattoo studio. “I was able to get different perspective on tattooing in those other shops,” Harber says. As a Noblesville native, he returned home and created his own business. Named after Mystic Road in Noblesville, Mystic Images Tattoo, Inc. was born. Mystic Images Tattoo was originally opened a 1/2 block away from its current location. Through hard work, dedication and persistence, Harber landed at his current location off of 10th street in 2014. While Noblesville is not Mystic Images Tattoo’s only location, Harber and his team have been especially successful here. He considers Noblesville one of the coolest towns in the United States. “I love the people, Noblesville is just a really good community,” Harber says. “I think Noblesville was the best place to have my business. I have a studio in Illinois, and the town doesn’t even compare.” And the community loves him back. Mystic Images Tattoo has become a staple in the Noblesville community. With a constant flow of clients in and out of the shop, Adam has no idea how many clients the shop has had as a total. Not even a guess. But, he does have an idea on just the amount of people

who show up on their busiest nights. “We are averaging about 110 tattoos just on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights alone,” Harber says. “I average about four tattoos in a day alone.” With a tattoo shop of nine artists and three piercers, business never really slows down. In fact, quite the opposite. Harber credits all of his artists for being especially talented and bringing in numerous amounts of regular clients. Harber also praises the community, “We have really great community support, and it keeps us super busy.” The number of patrons visiting has spiked in recent years, Harber mentions they have consistent growth. He mentions that his shop manager of six years, RJ Hunter, is a big part of their success with the growth the shop continuously receives. Many customers regularly travel across state lines to get tattoos or piercings from Harber and his team at Mystic Images Tattoo. Notably, one client of Adam’s has traveled across oceans to receive a tattoo. A police officer from France was Mystic Images Tattoo’s customer from abroad. The types of tattoos performed at Mystic Images Tattoo varies by artists. Each artist specializes in their own art, style, and personality with their work. Adam mentioned that his favorite work is black

and grey realism images, illustrative-style art. He also mentioned that his son AJ has brought in a whole new group of clientele with his photo-realism artwork. The tattoo artists are not only esteemed by the community, they are also award-winning. Harber explained that he, RJ, and the rest of the team try to compete in as many competitions as time allows. With 17 awards under his belt, Harber competes in many tattoo conventions all over the country. Shop Manager, RJ, has won 11 awards. Mystic Tattoos Inc. has made its footprint in Noblesville. In a matter of eight years, Mystic Images Tattoo has become a principal business in downtown Noblesville. As owner of the shop, Harber gives a huge thanks to the community he lives and works in. “I think we achieved being a staple in Noblesville by doing the best we can,” he says. “Effort through the process and caring about the outcome.” He feels flattered and ecstatic by the recognition from his community and peers. To schedule an appointment with Mystic Images Tattoo, customers can contact Harber and his team at 317-214-7166. The studio is located at 164 North 10th St. in Noblesville.
