Cathy May, Contributing Writer
The Holton Town Board met on November 13 at 9:00
a.m. It was announced that the Jingle Bell Jubilee will be held
on Saturday, December 1 starting at 6:00 p.m. Hoosier Hills Bluegrass
will play at 6:30 p.m. followed by the Tri County Harmonizers and
the Mellow Tones. Refreshments will be served.
Julie Brancamp, manager of the Ripley County Fairgrounds Park, spoke
to the board regarding the Christmas Walk at the park on Saturday,
December 1 and Sunday, December 2 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. She
asked if the board would purchase an inflatable Christmas figure
for the event. Brancamp said a sign would be made to show it was
donated by the Holton Town Board. The board gave permission to Brancamp
to purchase an item and send them the bill.
Board member Wilma Myers said she had a beautiful mural scene she
would like to have Toby Hunter paint on the inside of the Holton
Town Hall. Hunter has already painted a scene of a train at the
Holton Park and the Otter Creek Bridge at the town hall. The board
gave Myers permission to go ahead with the project.
Myers also said she would like to order more playground equipment
for the park so it could be in by spring. She will see what is available
and bring a recommendation back to the board at its next meeting.
All three town board members were present at the meeting: Robert
Furst, Wilma Myers, and Ron Palmer. Peggy Furst was present to advise
the board. The next regular meeting of the Holton Town Board will
be Tuesday, December 11 at 9:00 a.m. at the Holton Community Building.
