Columbus Fire Station Architecture

The Columbus Indiana Architectural Archives has put together an exhibit called ” Columbus Fire Station Architecture”. It covers a period from when our fire wagons were pulled by horses in the late 1800′s, to our newest fire stations of today. The exhibit includes stations designed by local architects, national architects, and international architects. It also includes the first woman architect to be invited to Columbus to design under the Cummins Engine Foundation program,  two architectural models, and “Sgt. Little George”.

The exhibit is located in the gallery space of the Bartholomew County Public Library and is available during library hours.

Holiday Giving Program

Centra Foundation will partner with the Salvation Army (FOP Cops & kids in Jackson County) in each of the Indiana communities where Centra Credit Union has a branch.  Angel Tree tags will be displayed on Christmas Trees in the branch. Our intent is to provide a new option for individuals who do not have the time to purchase gifts and return them to the Salvation Army.

Christmas Angels Tags with a child’s name and age will represent a child’s complete wish/need and will be valued from $50- $100.  Other ornaments will offer smaller donation amounts starting at $10.  These donations would be pooled towards the purchase of gifts.

The program will run from Nov 25th – Dec 14th
