A season long celebration of Notre Dame football is bringing together two communities in St. Joseph County. For the first time, the mayors of both South Bend and Mishawaka will participate in two street renaming ceremonies to recognize and celebrate the 125th year of Notre Dame Football. Both ceremonies will occur on Monday, September 17th at the times and locations as outlined below:
This Sunday, August 19th, at 7:30pm & 9:00pm Eastern Time, our local PBS affiliate, WNIT, will broadcast a one-hour documentary highlighting the City of Mishawaka as part of their "Our Town" series. This series provides a view into local cities & towns through the eyes of the people who live there.
On Tuesday, August 14th, Mayor Dave Wood, Dr. Terry Barker, Superintendent of Schools, Mishawaka PTA Representatives and the Mishawaka Police and Fire Departments will meet at Emmons School at 9:00 AM to kick off the 2012/2013 “Take Heart-Drive Smart” Campaign for the City of Mishawaka.
This is a Campaign sponsored by the City of Mishawaka and Mishawaka Schools to make drivers aware of the safe speeds while in school zones. Many of the area schools will begin school the week of August 20th and Mishawaka citizens need to realize that children will be walking to school and school speed zones will be closely monitored by Mishawaka Police.
Mayor David A. Wood has announced that effective Wednesday, July 25, 2012 at 6:00 AM, the City of Mishawaka will lift the burn ban that took effect on June 15, 2012 due to the dangerous drought conditions. “We are happy to announce that with the recent rains and cooler weather, we feel that the burn ban can now be lifted. Thank you to all of the Mishawaka Citizens for their cooperation during this burn ban. Because of this cooperation, there were no emergency or serious safety issues that had to be dealt with,” commented Mayor Wood.
