Community happenings: Ivy Tech celebration, Riverside bridge closing

Early-bird deadline approaching

The deadline for getting “early bird” discounted tickets for Ivy Tech Kokomo’s annual Celebration for Student Success is Monday. This year’s event will feature prize-winning tribute band TOUCH for an evening of Motown memories.

Reservations made by Monday are $30 each. From April 1 through the final deadline of April 15, tickets are $40 each.

The event is scheduled for 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. April 18 at the Kokomo Event & Conference Center and will include 90 minutes of Motown music along with a buffet of hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar and live and silent auctions. Proceeds from the evening support scholarships and other initiatives that benefit students at the Ivy Tech Community College Kokomo Campus.

Ticket information is available at www.ivytech.edu/kokomo/celebration14.html, or by calling 800-459-0561, ext. 296.

Riverside bridge closed temporarily

The Logansport Parks & Recreation Department has announced that contractors will be working on the bridge at Riverside Park. As the weather warms up, masonry work on the pillars will be done. In addition, the sidewalk railings will be installed.

During this final phase of construction, the bridge will be closed to the public. The contractor requests that the public stay off the bridge structure.

Visitors to Riverside Park are asked to keep away from the construction equipment for the duration.

Questions can be directed to the Parks Administrator, Janet Fawley, at 574-753-6969 or by email at admin@loganparks.comcastbiz.net.
