NEWS AND TRIBUNE BRIEFS — For April 18

FLOYD COUNTY

EMA planning training exercise

The Floyd County Emergency Management Agency and the Local Emergency Planning Committee will hold a training exercise from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 24, at Floyd Central High School.

There will be emergency equipment in the area during the exercise. It is possible that law enforcement and/or fire personnel will be in neighborhoods with evacuation and shelter instructions. This is only a drill. Residents should not panic and no action will be necessary.

 

NEW ALBANY 

National Day of Prayer event set

From businesses to education, from nonprofits to government and civil servants, and from churches to the media, groups within the community will receive specific prayer during New Albany’s National Day of Prayer commemoration outside the City-County Building on May 2.

From noon to 12:40 p.m., The Salvation Army, in conjunction with the city of New Albany, will once again host the public for the brief time of music, Scripture reading and prayer as the community and others throughout the United States at that time unite in faith.

This year, 300 folding chairs will be provided for the comfort of those attending the service. The added feature of having representatives offer a short prayer for several areas of the community is expected to draw even more than the 200 who gathered last year, according to Roxanne Haley, The Salvation Army’s business administrator. For additional information, call 944-1018.

 

Concert will feature world premiere

The Music Department at Indiana University Southeast will present the IUS orchestra at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 21, in the Richard K. Stem Concert Hall of the Paul W. Ogle Cultural and Community Center on the IUS campus, 4201 Grant Line Road, in New Albany. Tickets are $8 for adults, $5 for students, seniors, IUS faculty and staff, and are available at the Ogle Center ticket office or by calling 812-941-2526.
