GE Aviation donates about $2K to CASA

Staff members from the Vigo County CASA office accepted a recent invitation from GE Aviation representative Tony Urbanski to tour the local facility. Staff saw each phase of the manufacturing process including cutting, welding, boring, etching, treating, washing and shipping nickel-alloy and titanium engine components for commercial aircraft, military contracts and even for the 2016 Olympics.

At the end of the tour, Urbanski, along with plant managers Tom Bradley and Lori Smith, presented Vigo County CASA Kids with a check of nearly $2,000 to help fund the program’s annual awareness and fundraising event.

In 2011, GE Aviation collected donations for children served by Vigo County CASA volunteers that helped provide children with gifts at Easter, Halloween and Christmas. Company employees took a shopping list for each child attending and purchased gifts. Employees donated more than $5,000.

Agency provides small-business loans

Starting a business is something that many people dream of, but many lack the resources to put their idea in place. Community Action Program Inc. of Western Indiana has a revolving loan program which helps individuals fulfill their dreams through small-business loans.

The goal of the small-business loan program is to assist and foster microenterprise and small-business development growth.

The amount of the loan and the time frame for repayment depends on the amount needed and the ability to pay back the loan. Loans can be blended with other sources of financing for larger investments. These loans can be used for working capital, inventory or fixed assets. The program provides training on business strengths and weaknesses, and small-business support groups are available.

The program is offered in Benton, Clay, Fountain, Jasper, Montgomery, Newton, Parke, Vermillion, Vigo and Warren counties. Visit www.capwi.org for a listing of office locations.

For more information contact Alice Young at 765-793-4881, ext. 1209 or by email at ayoung@capwi.org

Marshall, Ill.

Chamber to form Walldogs committee

The Marshall Area Chamber of Commerce is forming a committee of volunteers looking to get involved in a community project. An informational meeting to learn about Marshall becoming a Walldogs community will be at 6 p.m. CDT on Oct. 23 at the Marshall Chamber of Commerce Building, 708 Archer Ave.

Walldogs are a group of sign and mural artists from across the globe. The tradition of painting wall advertisements is historic. Evidence of this can be seen in “ghost signs,” still evident on many buildings. The painters of these signs were often called Walldogs.  

Along with the title of Walldog, today’s mural artists have also adopted many other traditions that show in their work, from the colors they use to the design styles they practice, these murals capture a sense of nostalgia and historic significance. The Walldog movement began in Allerton, Iowa, in the summer of 1993, hosted by Nancy Bennett. That meet was the first official Walldog meet.  

Walldogs have been all over Illinois painting murals, most recently in Arcola. To learn more or see pictures of their work visit the Walldogs website at www.thewall

dogs.com or become a fan of walldogs on Facebook.
