Animals are an important part of any farm. They give us food and clothing, they protect us and even help with chores. We’ll learn all about the furry and feathered friends on the farm and make some animal crafts too. Which animal will be your favorite? Our Saturday Samplers are monthly family friendly workshops catered towards small children.

Voted ‘Best Local Band in Nashville’ by the Tennessean, the classically trained women of Harpeth Rising bring an exciting and distinctively new sound to Americana music on violin, banjo, cello, foot percussion, and powerful, three-part vocals. Their latest album, ‘Tales from Jackson Bridge,’ remains true to Harpeth Rising’s folk, bluegrass, country, and classical roots throughout, while it expands on their blues and rock influences and adds in some new flavors such as Texas Swing and Gypsy Jazz. The album has already been named No. 6 on the Folk DJ Charts, in the Top Fifteen on the EuroAmericana Charts, Americana Radio Top Five Most Added List, the Roots Music Report’s Top Forty, Alternate Root’s Top Ten Songs of the Week, and Amazon’s Top Twenty Hot New Releases in Roots Rock.

|The gusty winds of spring are here. What better way to spend an afternoon than to fly a kite. We will share a brief history of kites, make our own kites, and then go and take them for a spin (weather permitting). We will also make some paper airplanes to fly as well. You can come for the whole time, or just a little while. It will be high flying fun for the whole family.
$5 for public, $3 for members
Maximum: 24 guests
Advance registration is required and payment is to be made in full at time of registration. To register call 812-372-3541 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Muscular Dystrophy Association of Central Indiana is holding their annual Lock-Up event on Wednesday, June 4 from 11am-2pm at the Harrison Lake Country Club. The event is a chance for business leaders in the community to use their professional and personal influence to raise funds for Central Indiana families affected by muscle disease. It is also a great event for networking with other key business leaders and gaining exposure for your company.
MDA of Central Indiana is currently accepting nominations for influential business leaders that should be recognized for their achievements and are known for having big hearts. All nominations should be emailed to Indianapolis@mdausa.org or mailed to 9100 Purdue Road, Suite 203 Indianapolis, IN 46268.
The Muscular Dystrophy Association is the world’s leading nonprofit health agency dedicated to finding treatments and cures for 43 different neuromuscular diseases such as muscular dystrophy and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Lou Gehrig’s disease. We do so by funding worldwide research; by providing comprehensive health care services and support to MDA families nationwide; and by rallying communities to fight back through advocacy, fundraising, and local engagement.
Locally, the MDA of Central Indiana located in Indianapolis, helps to raise funds that support the 1,100 local families living with muscle disease. Of every dollar raised, 77 cents goes directly back to services, research, and education. The local services we provide include MDA clinic visits and flu shots, annual repairs of durable medical equipment, support groups for patients and caregivers, therapy consultation, and one week summer camp for ages 6-17.
Genetic testing is now an important part of healthcare and is used frequently to diagnose genetic disorders, guide treatment decisions, and predict future disease.
