NEW ALBANY

Stormwater board meeting moved 

The Floyd County Stormwater Board meeting has been moved to 5 p.m. May 21. It will follow the Floyd County Solid Waste meeting. It was originally set for Tuesday, May 7.

The meeting will still be held in the Commissioners’ Meeting Room at the Pine View Government Center, 2525 Corydon Pike, New Albany.

 

Learn how to fish for free

Men, women, and children of all ages are invited to take up their poles and come to Sam Peden Community Park/Shelter House No. 1, 3037 Grant Line Road in New Albany, for a free how-to-fish session from 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday, May 5.

Sponsored by the men’s ministry of Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church, the afternoon is an opportunity for families to participate together, according to Jim Kanning, men’s ministry chair. Experienced men, women and young adults will conduct the session, and children must be accompanied by an adult. No reservations are required.

For participants who are not able to bring their own rod and reel or fishing pole, those will be loaned for the session. Adults age 17 and older must have a fishing license. Bait will be provided for the instruction in casting, baiting the hook, tying knots, and adjusting bobbers.

For more information, contact Kanning at 1-812-968-4268.

 

Genealogy classes coming to library

The New Albany-Floyd County Public Library is offering a series of six classes from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. beginning Wednesday, May 8.

Library staff member and genealogist Nancy Strickland will be teaching the class. Participants will learn the basics of getting started, including an overview of what information to look for, forms to use and how to organize the information. 

Participants should bring a pencil and a list of known ancestors including names, dates and places of birth, marriage and death if known. Due to the size of the computer lab, the class is limited to 10 participants. Call the Indiana Room at 812-949-3527 to make reservations
