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

Crothersville Town Players To Perform Petunia’s Christmas


The Crothersville Town Players will present the Roger Devoisin children’s classic Petunia’s Christmas as a dinner theatre on Friday, December 13 at Hamacher Hall.


The doors open to Hamacher Hall at 6:00, with the meal being served at 6:30.

Roger Duvoisin authored and illustrated 40 books, including five books about Petunia.  His books about Petunia Goose have become classics in children’s liturature. Duvoisin was also a distinguished magazine illustrator and an important New Yorker cover artist during the 1930′s.

Petunia’s Christmas is a whimsical tale about an irrepressible goose that employs all of her wiles to prevent a handsome gander from the neighboring farm from being served as the main course at Christmas Dinner.  Petunia goes to great lengths to prove that love conquers all. 


This year’s presentation is under the direction of Brenda Holzworth, a retired Crothersville school teacher. “I have always loved this children’s story, and have read it to many different ages.”


The cast includes; The Narator, Eunice Lacey - Petunia, Bayleigh North - Charles the handsome gander, Brayden Growe.  The farmers are played by Linda Seals, Kim Mains, Jonathon Bowman, and Klarissa Wilburn.

The dinner is being catered by volunteers and will include; tossed salad, holiday ham, au gratin potatoes, green beans, dinner roll, assorted desserts, iced tea, and lemonade.


Tickets are sold for table seating, and tables will be decorated by area businesses, clubs and groups. Each table setting will include free gifts and specialty items from the table sponsor. Tickets are available for purchase at a cost of $15.


Seats are limited, so persons wishing to attend are urged to secure their tickets early.
Immediately following Friday’s performance will be a Christmas Auction, conducted by local auctioneer, Terry Prine. The auction will include Holiday Decorations, Crothersville Souvenirs, and last minute gift ideas.

The playhouse for the Crothersville Town Players is located at Hamacher Hall, 211 East Howard Street.
