How did the settlers move from one place to another and what did they bring with them? We’ll discover the trials of moving pioneers and you will get a chance to see what you would take with you if you were traveling to the frontier. You’ll also take home a pioneer surprise. Let’s get moving! Our Saturday Samplers are monthly family friendly workshops catered towards small children.
Our Hospice of Decatur/Shelby will present its 10th annual fundraiser, “A Royal Night,” on March 15th, 2014 at Indiana Downs Clubhouse (Trackside), 4200 North Michigan Road, Shelbyville, IN.
