Girl Scouts of Kentucky Southern Indiana

Kentucky and Girl Scouts welcome future and current Girl Scouts to a fun family event to celebrate the start of the new military year.

The free event is open Saturday, September 11 from 4 pm to 6 pm at Stoke Yard Bank, 227 E. Lewis and Clark Picky, Clarksville. Preparations for Covi Health and Safety protocols will be held outdoors.

Staff and volunteers show off Girl Scout programs and volunteer roles in booths at games, activities, awards and the on-site Girl Scout shop.

Participants will also have the opportunity to sample the new Girl Scout Cookie, Adventurefuls, which will be sold as part of the Girl Scout Cookie program in December.

On September 20, the local Gers Scout will begin a harvest program that includes soldiers, candy, and magazine sales. Samples of fruit and candy are available during the supply. All revenues from both programs will remain local and the military will be funding the Scout Adventures throughout the year.

Participating families can learn more about Girl Scouts, join the military for the first time, or renew their membership. Girl Scout uniforms will be discounted by 20% if purchased at the event.

Live Theater Back In Downtown New Albany

Keyhole Theater Company announces the return of live theater to downtown New Albany. Tickets for Samuel Beckett’s “Safeguarding Injury” are now available. Exhibitions will be held on the upper floor of the TheaterWorks of SoIN in downtown New Albany, 203 E Main Street at the historic Indiana State Bank Building.

The story revolves around two people who seem to be homeless – or something – called Godot. Vladimir and Estragon guard their consciences next to a tree. The result is poetry, dream poems, and a ridiculously word-for-word comedy that translates into human endless search. The product is based on the background of the VV-19 epidemic and the fears we all face.

Key Well Theater offers this in a circular, immersive environment. All ticket holders in the theater are required to wear masks, no discounts are given, and all actors and members of the company are fully vaccinated. The number of seats is reduced by capacity and the ability to create “pumpkins” of social groups is far from over.

Exhibitions September 16, 17, 18, 23, 24 and 25 Tickets for $ 15 at 7:30 p.m. If you have trouble getting tickets online, you will be at the show on the night of the show. However, seating is limited.

Clark Grant Historical Society

The Clark Grant Historical Society will meet on Monday, September 20 at 7 a.m. at Charleston Public Library, 51 Clark Road, Charleston. The meeting is open to the public.

Mandy Dick, a sixth-generation storyteller and educator, traces the development of education in the United States from the colonial and frontier period until the 1960s.

Using horn book and knitting needles, America tried to teach Dick and Jane readers at Dame Schools. Parents pay teachers and administrators to provide their children with a place in higher education, or in a humble society. As the country grew, people began to think more about education. Indiana was the first state to include a free education for all children in the state constitution.

Listen to the stories of Border Schools and see examples of Horn Book, New England Primer and McGuire readers. (Mr. McGuffrey taught in Indiana for some time.)

Bring your mask. The library recommends wearing a mask at home, but it is not necessary.
