Pop tabs collected for Eli

Pop tabs are being collected throughout Putnam County in the name of Eli Hardwick.

Hardwick, 6, was struck by a car at Big Walnut Sports Park on Sept. 30. He was originally at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, and has now been moved to Methodist Hospital, also in Indianapolis, for rehabilitation.

Proceeds from the tabs will go to Ronald McDonald House, where Hardwick's parents, Jim and Laurie, have stayed frequently during their son's recovery.

If 1 million tabs are collected in Hardwick's name, he will receive a plaque from Ronald McDonald House.

Several local businesses and organizations are collecting tabs, including Tri Kappa sorority and Treasures on the Square.

Deer Meadow Primary School in Greencastle, where Hardwick is a first-grader, is also a drop-off point for tabs.

Natural History comes alive at PCPL

Jean Walter, PCPL Reference Assistant, will discuss fossils and geodes during the after school story time for school-age children, at 4 p.m. Thursday at the Putnam County Public Library. Through stories, and using geodes and fossils she has collected over the years, Jean will bring natural history alive.

Each child will be given a geode to take home to crack open, and part of a geode that has already been opened. Everyone will also make a fossil-like impression to take home.

In preparation for this special story time fossils and geodes will be on display in the Children's Department at the library.
