The Stellar Community Development Program is taking a regional approach under changes announced in late January by Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch and officials from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs.


The revamped program will emphasize collaboration between neighboring towns, cities and counties.


“We are all a part of this great state, and through the regional Stellar Community program, we must continue to improve our neighborhoods and encourage a partnership between communities,” Crouch said. “Through OCRA’s Stellar Program, we are supporting initiatives to attract, retain and develop talent in and around Indiana, and to do this our communities must work together.”

Elks Lodge to celebrate 150th anniversary

In the mid 19th century, a group of actors looking for a way to socialize with one another formed the organization known as The Jolly Corks.


When one of the founding members died, the group moved to become a charitable organization to help take care of the fallen member’s family. Deciding the organization needed a more formal name, the group debated as to whether to call themselves the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks or The Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffalos. By an 8-7 vote, the Elks name won and, on Feb. 16, 1868, the B.P.O.E. was created.


This week, more than 1,900 local lodges around the United States and its territories, including the Wabash Elks Lodge No. 471, will be celebrating the organization’s 150th anniversary.

For the third time in less than 18 months, a project in the City of Wabash will benefit from a crowdfunding campaign sponsored by the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority through the CreatINg Places program.


“All Hoosiers deserve the same opportunities, regardless of background, economic status, or physical and intellectual challenges,” said Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch, who serves as board chair of IHCDA. “There are more than 100,000 Hoosiers that have an intellectual or developmental disability. This playground ensures that all individuals can enjoy it."
