Events in the Next 7 Days

4/25/2015
Join the Jennings County Historical Society in Historic Vernon, Indiana for two days of sassafras tea, Civil War re-enactments, mock battles, skits, skirmishes, blue/gray ball, President and Mrs. Lincoln, General Lee, General Grant, conspirators and more! Hundreds of homemade pies and hot meals will be available at the society's museum on the Vernon square throughout the event. Our working blacksmith shop will be open, free sassafras tea and cookies, and re-enactors from both Union and Confederate regiments will be camped on the Courthouse Lawn and around Vernon. Sutlers will be camped on Rat Row with a large variety of period wares. The festival this year is going to have a number of special events commemorating the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War and Lincoln's assassination. In addition to two battles and the Blue/Grey Ball, this year there will be two parades, one a Peace (Union Victory) Parade and the other a Lincoln Funeral Parade. These parades will include Civil War re-enactors, but will also include registered descendants of Civil War soldiers. We want to join the two together to show that the sacrifices made by so many 150 years ago lives on in the lives of real people today. A draped funeral train car will be pulled onto the overpass in Vernon on Sunday afternoon, well-guarded by Union troops.

The Jefferson County and Scott County soil and water conservation districts, and Hardy Lake Indiana Department of Natural Resources Parks and Reservoirs will host the 14th annual Hardy Lake Sweep on April 25, 2015 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Last year more than 200 volunteers from 4-H, Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts, and individuals picked up several tons of waste along the county roads surrounding Hardy Lake and the watershed area around the lake. Volunteers picked up approximately 2,300 pounds of trash and put in more than 800 hours of volunteer time worth about $17,492 during the 2014 event.
The program is intended to educate the community on the problems of illegal dumping and littering in Scott and Jefferson counties. Littering has a harmful effect on our environment and places an economic burden on landowners and the local government.
Free camping is available one night that weekend only, for all groups that come to help. Each volunteer will also receive lunch, a safety bandana and a commemorative patch.
For more information on volunteering or being a sponsor for the event, call (812) 265-7609 or email Kayla Hubbard at kayla.hubbard@jeffersoncounty.in.gov. The registration deadline is April 10.
