The Hobart Jaycees raised more than $500 for local charities through tips and "rocking out the concerts" at its annual Jayceefest, June 28 through July 6. Benefiting are the Hobart Police Department K-9 Unit, Hobart Food Pantry, Meals on Wheels of Northwest Indiana and the Hoosier Burn Camp.
Looking for something?
The Hobart Police Department has found property that has been turned in to them, including a BMX bike, a television set, a cell phone and other items. Contact Det. Corey Hanrahan at (219) 942-1125, ext. 1067 for information on how to make a claim.
Don't advertise vacations
Hobart police offer this tip from their most recent newsletter: To prepare for vacation, besides putting a hold on your newspaper and mail, do not "advertise" your trip especially, on Facebook. That could be an invitation for a home burglary.
Friends ask for sale items
Friends of Robinson Lake will host a rummage sale on July 18 through 20 to raise funds to benefit the park. The sale will be from 2 to 8 p.m. July 18 and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on July 19 and 20 in the St. Bridget School Gym, 568 E. Second St, Hobart.
The group is asking for donations of large and small items. For information on where to drop off donations, call Zeta Allen at (219) 313-5272 or Bob Krebes at (219) 947-1273.
Concert series continues
Hobart City Improvement’s summer concert season continues from 7 to 8 p.m. Thursdays at the Revelli Band Shell in Festival Park, 111 E. Old Ridge Road.
The planned June 27 concert by the Hobart Area Community Band (formerly The Rusty Pipes ) was cancelled due to the weather.
This Thursday, David Lopez will appear with his Elvis Tribute. The July 18 concert will feature Jim Bulanda with a Tribute to Vocalists of 40’s-80’s. On July 25, Joe Sibley will appear with a Kenny Rogers Tribute.
Due to a lack of volunteers, the Hobart City Improvement Committee will no longer operate its concession stand, so bring a snack and enjoy the music and fellowship of friends and neighbors.
Movies in the Park
After select Thursday evening concerts at Festival Park, Movies in the Park will be screened at dusk. "Hotel Transylvania" will be shown this week, and "E.T The Movie" is scheduled for July 25. Admission is free.
Making a complaint
The Hobart Police Department is receiving many summertime complaints from the neighborhoods. Sgt. Ken Gagliardi has been assigned to code enforcement; he should be the first contact when neighbors have a complaint or concern.
He can be reached at (219) 942-1125, ext. 1056 or Kgagliardi@cityofhobart.org.
