vendors and visitors that attended in actual handmade costumes, included was a gentleman on his way to attend his induction into

This set of 3 Albums cover the Fair Parade from beginning to end. We begin with the floats and
other vehicles lining up and hints at some of the activities of the participants as they
ready everyone for the days trip through the downtown streets of Franklin.
I purposely avoided many of the Courthouse as the streets surrounding
were under construction at the time. There are many photos of the parents
and their kids enjoying all the activities and and of course seeing
just how much candy they could catch. I was traveling on
Woody Burton's fire truck and specifically covered the action
from the perspective of the Johnson County Republican Procession.
Enjoy your time spent here as we sure did.

Our (SALI's) portion of this event started fine with 5 participants on site in Old Town. (At the SALI Gallery). The sun was shining, the temperature was warm but comfortable. All seemed well.
Connie Ford staffed the gallery providing information to the entrants and keeping in touch with those in the park. Linda Long and I, along with Steve Warner set up our tent and table. Steve then worked on his painting nearby. As demonstrations, Linda worked on her watercolor and I drew with pastel pencils. These activities attracted the curious ( as was our intent).
Several adults and other adults (parents with their kids watched on and asked question of the artists. (abridged)
Heidi Shackelford was a wonderful judge again this year, giving individual critiques with comments. The results are as follows:

First of a New Set of Videos
Atterbury Fish and Wildlife Recreation Area,
Johnson County Park and the Public Areas of Camp.
In my estimate Atterbury Fish and Wild life
Recreation Area and Johnson County Pk
in general are some of the best kept pristine areas in the county. You can easily get back to nature
and have so many varied types of activities available.
Please visit the videos below to get a feel for what is there and then
get your bod out of the chair and leave the tv behind.
Get back to nature with out leaving the County.
We will see you there.
in Pisgah Lake
in length<<< (Click to view this link to view the video on YouTube)
The Park offers several good places to fish (fishing license is required - Annually $25.00)
Pisgah is one of the larger of the lakes and is located on the north eastside of the property. Pisgah can be accessed by vehicle
from the north or the south and parking lots and boat ramps are available on both sides. The lake is surrounded by woods
and is bounded on the northwest side by a tall railroad tressle which can be reached by trail. The area around Pisgah is the home of
may wildlife such as birds; hawk, eagles, geese, a wide variety of ducks, snake, insects such as dragonflies. There are a few marsh-like areas
where cattails can be found. The sounds of the forest and lake are ever present.
A point of information: Camp
Atterbury at present (June 2013) is undergoing some major building projects and
some roads are closed to public access
so on the southside of the lake there is no direct access from the west without going all the way to the base further to the south and then coming north.
Small powered fishing boats can be utilized on the lake. Pisgah is a popular lake for bluegill. So in short access to the lake is from the east and the south by road.

While you are driving around Johnson County, why not take a few minutes and visit PRAISE ACRES and learn a bit
about what it took to farm in pre-WWII. Here you can see some actually used in farming; Horse Drawn implements.
They are well preserved and while you are there why not peruse the wooden sculpture hewn by way of a chain saw.
There are a few trails to walk and can enjoy some fresh country air as well as some beautiful Country Side Views.
This is only about 25 minutes south of Indianapolis or 10 minutes west of Whiteland on Whiteland Road and near SR 37S.

Relay For Life - Carmel
13 minute video of the event
Event was sponsored by the American Cancer
Society and was held at the Carmel High School Track Field in Carmel, IN.
It lasted from early in the morning until after dark. The runners attracted sponsors with all funds going to the ACS and their efforts to cure Cancer. I only covered the hour between 5PM and 6PM and even was drawn out to participate in a couple
of laps with my daughter, who was walking with others from the E. 91st Street Christian Church team.
It was a very enjoyable evening and raised quite a bit of money to help in the efforts to provide
a cure for Cancer.

This was the only stop of the Train in Central Indiana, which promoted Disney's Fall 09 release
of its new movie, "A Christmas Carol". The train hosted a free tour of the train and other miscellaneous offerings of live and recorded pieces to involve participants. Cinema Magic - Morph yourself into one of the movie's characters. Great fun for the kids. Parking was difficult to find and not close to train, although a tractor ferry was there to transport the crowd. Crowd line to the event were at times 3 - 4 hours in length. Many external vendors offering food and nonfood items for sale free movie tickets to the local Drive-in in Franklin added to the success of the event.
