NightRangerThe Haynes Apperson Festival in Kokomo ended a successful three-day run Saturday night with a large crowd at Foster Park down town attending a free concert sponsored by Shine 99 featuring Night Ranger. The concert was followed by the city’s Fourth of July Celebration fireworks. The park was overflowing with vendors and all of the fair food expected at an Indiana festival. The event featured a line up of entertainment that included not only Night Ranger but Blue Oyster Cult Thursday  Night followed by Here Come The Mummies Friday night  and The Eric Steckel Band opening for Night Ranger Saturday. A parade, carnival rides and a car show provided something for everyone. Plans for next year’s event will start in August.

South Decatur Elementary School has introduced a new fundraising program called My School Color Run. The My School Color Run program aims to go beyond traditional fundraising. Rather than sell goods, the program aims to engage the entire student body in a fitness initiative that aims to instill a life-long healthy way of living. On Sept. 3, at 9 a.m., the students, staff, and community of South Decatur Elementary School will walk, jog, and run their way toward a healthier life while raising funds for the PTO’s Playground Revitalization Project. The color run will be held at South Decatur Jr-Sr High School, and will be open to the public. This is an untimed fun run. Participants will pass through four color stations throughout the course and end with a massive color toss at the My Color Run Post-Race Party. Participants will be treated to refreshments, music, and fun following the run. Interested participants of all ages can register by visiting www.SouthDecaturMSCR.eventbrite.com, or by completing a paper registration form prior to the event. Registration is $25 for adults 13 and older, and $20 for kids 12 and under. A family of five gets a discount at $20 per person. Pre-registration is[...]
