Jenny’s Picks – May 18th

1) If you’ve followed my editor’s notes in She Magazine, you know that I make dolls. Typically, my dolls depict pop culture icons (think: Richard Simmons, Cookie from “Empire” and the titular character from “Nurse Jackie), but I bet I will pick up some inspiration at the Annual Doll and Bear Show and Sale, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Bartholomew County 4-H Fairgrounds, community building, 750 W. County Road 200S, Columbus. Free admission and door prizes. Antique, modern and collectible original dolls and bears. Sponsored by Dolls Night Out Club of Columbus. Information: 812-376-9124.

2) We live in an amazingly diverse small town. Recognize and honor that trait of Columbus at Celebrating Our Diversity. Meet at the steps of City Hall with Mayor Jim Lienhoop at 4 p.m. Sunday and march to Fourth Street for speakers, music, activity to celebrate the multicultural experience that is life in Columbus. This event is hosted by Showing Up for Racial/Social Justice (SURJ) in conjunction with the United Nations World Day for Cultural Diversity. Free. For more information, contact Celebrate812@gmail.com.
