The walk is co-sponsored by Dearborn County Hospital, Lawrenceburg Fall Fest, the City of Lawrenceburg and the Lawrenceburg Conservancy District.  Ivy Tech Community College-Riverfront Campus, 50 Walnut Street, is generously providing its facilities for pre- and post-walk activities.

Registration and pre-event activities begin at 9 a.m. on the third floor of the Ivy Tech building.  Light refreshments will be available at that time.  The walk begins at 10 a.m.

Walkers will receive a goody bag containing promotional items and educational materials.  Also, Dearborn County Hospital and local and regional businesses are providing gift certificates or items to be given as door prizes.

Each person walking will receive a ribbon. Walkers will be awarded a yellow ribbon for participation or a color coded ribbon for walking .5 miles, 1 mile, 1.5 miles, 2 miles or the entire course at 3.1 miles. 

Spotters are stationed along the course in the event a walker would need assistance.

At the conclusion of the walk, participants may wish to attend additional Fall Fest activities, including free rides, a car show, chili cook-off and an evening concert.

Annexation sought for nursing home

Rising Sun could see a new nursing home in the not-too-distant future, once properties owned by The Waters of Rising Sun and H & T Limited are annexed into the city, said Lane Siekman, attorney for the property owners.

On their behalf, Siekman presented a petition seeking annexation to Rising Sun City Council at its regular meeting Thursday, Sept. 4. The property, in two parcels, each owned by one of the above, are at 4753 Ind. 56 and at 4847 Ind. 56.

Indiana law does not allow remonstrances against annexation when it is requested by the property owner, said Siekman.

“Some exciting things are going to happen in Rising Sun,” he said, explaining the owners will bring their plans to the plan commission in the future. “All we're doing at this point is asking for this land to become part of the City of Rising Sun.”
