Jeffersonville’s own version of “The Voice,” also known as Teddy Throckmorton, recently participated in his 60th Crusade for Children. For those keeping score, that’s actually every one of them ever held. He is one of only a couple of volunteers left that has been involved in all of the Crusades.
Congratulations on No. 60, Ted. I promise you that when you make your 75th Crusade for Children, I will give you another whole column. It might appear in the Senior Citizen’s Newsletter, but I will write it.
Today [Saturday] marks the third day of the Charlestown Founder’s Day celebration activities. The Charlestown Beautification Committee always works hard and does a bang-up job for the annual June celebration.
There are day-long events scheduled for Greenway Park throughout Saturday afternoon that include live music beginning at noon and concluding with a fireworks show scheduled to begin at 10 p.m.
Activities include a classic car show, arts and crafts booths and various contests during the day to include a hula hoops and bubble gum competition. This is a very family-oriented event and people from all over the region are invited to celebrate Charlestown as the city’s birthday is commemorated.
