Go Guide – March 12

1) For ages, I’ve seen listings for the Bartholomew County Writers Group’s meetings at the Bartholomew County Public Library, but I haven’t yet gone. I think today I’ll head to the 6 p.m. gathering in the library’s conference room, 536 Fifth St. After all, when writers meet other writers, this is when the synergy occurs. Information: 812-379-1266.

2) I spent several summers at a Girl Scout camp. This particular camp, eventually shut down because of its proximity to the old Fernald nuclear production facility in the greater Cincinnati area, offered programs in horseback riding. I certainly was never an accomplished rider, but I enjoyed the horses themselves. That’s why Carly Board’s senior project “Get to Know Our American Mustangs,” 11 a.m. Saturday, Bartholomew County Fairgrounds, 750 W. County Road 200S, sounds so cool. Mustangs will be presented to show the skills and characteristics of the breed. Should I wish to get my own Mustang, a representative of the Bureau of Land Management, the agency that arranges Mustang adoptions, will talk about the adoption process, and Mustang trainers, called TIP trainers, will present trained horses for adoption. The event is free; lunch will be available for $5. Information: 812-390-5717.
