April 6: Charlie Kapper
On April 6, the Old Homestead on South Court Street is hosting a fantastic quilting demonstration and display. The art has not left Crown Point. There are a number of great quilting groups around here.
April 10: Some of us get to be substitute grandparents for Grandparents Day. We are going to be with Megan McNamara and Abby Long at Boone Grove Middle School. We already went to Claire Long’s Grandparent’s Day at Porter Lakes Elementary School. If someone asks you to be a substitute grandparent, do it. Not only is it good for the child who wouldn’t have a grandma or grandpa with them, it is fun for you too!
At 9:53 a.m. on Holy Saturday, a little birdie told me that the traffic was backed up from the entrance of the fairgrounds all the way up Main Street to Summit Street. There was car after car filled with bouncing children headed to the Easter egg hunt. The birdie said it would have been nice for some traffic assistance like there is for the fair. Living Hope Church in Merrillville, which was putting on the event, should have thought of that. After all, last year they put out 40,000 eggs and this year put out 100,000 eggs. The county owns the fairgrounds, not the city of Crown Point. No one from Living Hope was ever at a Crown Point Board of Public Works and Safety meeting asking for traffic help. Oops!
When some people saw the church sign
that read “Opening Day 3/31/13,” they wondered if they were Cubs or Sox fans. They didn’t think the sign was on the church because it was Easter!

Welcome to a new dog in the Long household. Princess Leia Amidala Organna-Solo is a pretty beagle mixed lady.
Get ready to ride.
