The Press-Dispatch Wednesday, Feburar y 17, 2021 A-3 NEWS BRIEFS Dubois County Museum hosts free night Feb. 18 The Dubois County Museum hosts their monthly free night on Thursday, Feb. 18, from 5:30 -8 p.m. at the mu- seum. The month of February celebrates the Legacy of Abraham Lincoln with a special exhibit on our 16th pres- ident. Museum volunteers have gathered Lincoln items for the museum's collection and have displayed them in Room 1 at the museum. Also on display at the museum is a unique collection of Civil War items, featuring handwritten letters home from Captain Jacob Alles. The letters were written in German and translated to English and bound for display. Don't forget to examine and read all about the American flag carried by members of Indiana Company K from Dubois County into Civil War battles. The Civil War Room is filled with many pieces of that time period in American history. The free night admission is scheduled for the third Thursday of each month. The museum is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m.-2 pm., Saturday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and Sunday 1-4 p.m. Closed on Monday.

Birth Community Center awarded grant from IAC The Jefferson Township Community Center recently received a COVID-19 grant from the Indiana Arts Com- mission. Grants from the Indi- ana Arts Commission are giv- en to help impact the cultural, economic and educational cli- mate of Indiana. "Thanks to this grant, the Otwell Community Center was able to maintain some of its operations. Our facility pro- vides a local spot in which our local seniors can come for ac- tivities, and occasional meals and nutrition information," said Rhonda Robinette, of the Community Center. "They know they can call our Senior Services Director, Marcia Seifrig, if they need a helping hand for getting rides to doctor's appointments or for groceries. Our housekeeper, Lorene Jenkins, has done a fantastic job keeping our facili- ties clean and sanitized during COVID-19," said Robinette. The grant money has al- lowed the center to purchase hand sanitizing stations, masks, gloves and other need- ed PPE, which is available to anyone entering the center. "This grant has allowed us to maintain our facility so we can continue to remain a hub in our Otwell community, which we all love," said Rob- inette. "Hopefully, 2021 can be our best year ever and we can or- ganize more activities once again for our seniors." The Community Center al- so received local support from the Pike County Park and Rec- reation, as well as the Pike County Commissioners. "We are grateful for all the help we have received," said Robinette. Rhonda Robinette, Lorene Jenkins, Marcia Seifrig, John Gray and Marty Seifrig display an Indiana Arts Com- mission banner in front of Otwell Community Center in appreciation for a COVID assistance grant.
