Goshen Festival Encourages Harmony (Elkhart Truth)

From the Elkhart Truth:

GOSHEN _ Hundreds of spectators came out to Rogers Park on Saturday for the second annual Maple City Multicultural Festival.

The Nicole Williams Drum Circle attracted kids and adults alike to the pavilion for togetherness activities and music, as did illusionist Kevin Long.

  GHS orchestra students

Patrons visited booths with foods from Ukraine, Mexico, El Salvador, Palestine, India, Guatemala, Ethiopia and more. Kids competed to win a new t-shirt by being one of the first to “fill out their passport” by visiting booths from every country in attendance.

“The goal is to allow people to come together in a non-political non-confrontational setting where we can explore each other’s cultures in the way of food and music,” Deb Jones, director of the Maple City Multicultural Festival or board member for La Casa Inc., said.

The playground offered tons of fun for young kids while parents explored and listened to music. Ten Thousand Villages offered a music instrument “petting zoo,” Goshen Fire Department brought out an ambulance and a fire truck for kids to check out.

Basketball clinics for people of all ages were held throughout the afternoon as well. Heart City Health Center, MHS and La Boutique, Ten Thousand Villages, La Casa, Inc., and many other companies came out to supply the community with information and products to consider.

GHS basketball players

Sponsors for the event included LaCasa, Inc., Goshen Parks Department, Abogado Felipe Merino, Faubian Plumbing Heating & AC, Goshen College CIIE, Goshen Community Relations Commission, Goshen Family Physicians, Gutierrez Bakery, Heart City Health Center, Interra Credit Union, La Boutique, Mulroy Family Insurance, Radio Horizonte and the Electric Brew.

Please take special notice of the railroad crossing to be closed starting Monday, August 21st by Penguin Point. The last time that particular crossing was closed, there was a significant increase in the number of vehicles using the streets around GHS and the GCS Administration Center. At times, cars and trucks drove down 10th street the wrong way, and did not stop at the corner of 10th Street and Purl Street because there is no stop sign at that intersection (if vehicles are going south/the wrong way). Goshen Schools is working with the city, INDOT and Norfolk Southern to post proper, temporary signage to route traffic in safe patterns. However, please use extra caution during the railroad closure. Walk, bike, and drive defensively; we want you to be safe!

Traffic/Construction Update

From the City of Goshen offices: Construction updates

The following roads/railroad crossings will be closed for construction:

Cottage avenue closed Aug. 14

HRP construction will close down Cottage Avenue at the railroad tracks, to prepare for the installation of a water main under the railroad crossing.

This closure will be similar to the previous closures on Cottage Avenue, with access to LaCasa and the Work Release Center being from the north (Crescent and Bridge streets). Cottage Avenue will be closed for about six to eight weeks during this construction period.

Railroad Crossing Improvement Scheduled on U.S. 33 in City of Goshen (from INDOT)

The Indiana Department of Transportation announces that U.S. 33, between 9th and 10th streets in the City of Goshen, is scheduled to close at 6 a.m. on the morning of Monday, August 21, weather permitting. The closure will allow Norfolk Southern to rebuild the railroad crossing.

Drivers are reminded to follow the posted detour signage. The work, which will improve the driving surface for motorists, is anticipated to be completed by 6 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 25, weather permitting.

From Goshen Community Schools:

Goshen students, staff, and parents, please take special notice of the railroad crossing to be closed Monday, August 21. This is the crossing by Penguin Point. The last time that particular crossing was closed, there was a significant increase in the number of vehicles using the streets around GHS and the GCS Administration Center. At times, cars and trucks drove down 10th street the wrong way, and did not stop at the corner of 10th Street and Purl Street because there is no stop sign at that intersection (if vehicles are going south/the wrong way). Goshen Schools is working with the city, INDOT, and Norfolk Southern to post proper, temporary signage to route traffic in safe patterns. However, please use extra caution during the railroad closure. Walk, bike, and drive defensively; we want you to be safe!
