Some of you know that I’m a little crazy about animals and cats in particular. The Whiskers and Paws Holiday Fundraiser for the Bartholomew County Humane Society seems like the perfect benefit for local animal lovers to attend, and its set for 7 to 9:30 p.m. Dec. 2 at Mill Race Center, 900 Lindsey St. It is in a dinner theater format with an appetizer/dessert buffet. Christmas-themed entertainment provided by the Lasting Impressions singing group, a silent auction, a 50/50 raffle and a cash bar. Tickets are $25 for buffet and entertainment, available at Athens Animal Clinic, Bartholomew County Humane Society and Mill Race Center.
Mini things are having something of a surge in popularity, with Instragram accounts — such as Daily Mini — featuring a wide range of tiny objects. Join the Columbus Indiana Architectural Archives’ guest and Museum of Modern Art conservator Roger Griffith for a discussion on the Conservation and Care of Architectural Models at the Museum of Modern Art, 7 p.m. Dec. 8, Bartholomew County Public Library, 536 Fifth St. The event is free and open to the public. Information: 812-379-1266 and mybcpl.org.
