"It just doesn't get any better than this!
Today was another great day in the City of Elwood! More than 60 student athlete from the Elwood Community School Corporation spent their day giving back to their community by volunteering at the Second Harvest Tailgate Event in Callaway Park and painting the Welcome to Elwood signs at all four entrances to the city. It was so heartwarming to see all of these kids out working alongside one another. They were all working hard yet you could see the smiles on their faces and hear their laughter. They definitely made some memories today! This was such a great team building exercise. Huge thanks to Athletic Director, Ryan VanSkyock, Park Superintendent Clay Creekmore and his team at the park, all the coaches who came out today, the school administration for supporting this event and last but not least all the amazing kids who came out and displayed Panther Pride in our city. I love these kids and all they represent! Today was another testament when people say WHY ELWOOD, our response is always WHY NOT?"
-Mayor Todd

Transformation Tuesday

It's hard to believe these two photos are of the same location, but thanks to Food & Beverage Funds awarded to the City of Elwood by the Madison County Council, this once desolate alley was transformed into a beautiful space for our residents and visitors to sit and relax, enjoy the peaceful atmosphere, or host a meeting or get-together.

The photo on the left was taken prior to the start of the revitalization of the alley located next to Gypsy Soul in the uptown business district.. As part of the Alley Activation Project implemented by the Jones Administration, fresh paint was applied, Edison light strung overhead, new tables and chairs, a variety of unique murals painted by local talent, and beautiful gates by Old Tin Rods completed the transformation!
