Lincoln birthday celebration
The Rush County Historical and Genealogical Society jointly will host a Lincoln birthday celebration beginning at 7 p.m., Wednesday at the 201 Building. The event is free and open to the public and a Lincoln impersonator will present a program. Free will donations and non-perishable food items for the local food pantry will be accepted.
RCS extended hours
The State Department of Education is allowing school corporations to make-up missed time by adding additional instructional time to current calendar school days. Rush County Schools will use Wednesdays (normally an early dismissal day) to make up this time.
Beginning Wednesday, schools will dismiss 55 minutes later than normal. Doing so for the next 14 Wednesdays (Feb. 12 through May 21) allows students enough time to make up the required hours for two days. This now means the students last day will be Friday, May 23 and teachers last day will be Tuesday, May 27. Graduation will remain at 2 p.m. on June 8.
The monthly Rush County Sheriff’s Merit and Pension Board meetings that had been scheduled for Feb. 5 have been rescheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Rush County Courthouse Assembly Room.
Not-for-profits may submit upcoming events to firstname.lastname@example.org or 126 S. Main St., Rushville, IN 46173.
• The Rush County Health Department will hold their next Senior Screening on Wednesday, Feb. 12 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Rush Co. Senior Center.
