Letter from the President

Hello neighbors,

Summer is here…finally! I wanted to remind you to check out Zionsville Happenings on a regular basis at for summer events - just click the “Happenings Calendar.”

The ZVRA Golf Scramble is set for Saturday, August 9th at the Zionsville Golf Course. Tee times start at 3:00 p.m. After our round of golf, we will have a meal consisting of burgers, brats, chips and potato salad. The cost is $28 per player, which includes 9 holes of golf, a cart, and the meal. We will play a scramble format (4-person teams each hitting the best shot). Teams can be created at sign up if you wish to play with a specific person or group, or we are happy to place you on a team the day of the event. The goal of this event is to provide an opportunity for residents to get together, have some fun and meet new neighbors. If you are interested in participating, please email Todd Rech at or Scott Lusk at We have already received a great deal of verbal interest. If you plan to play, please send $28 with your name to the following:

Or, drop it by Todd’s house at 645 Valley View Drive by Sunday, August 2nd. Please direct further questions to Todd Rech at the above email or call me at 952-412-8137. We hope to see a good turnout!

Please help me welcome new VRA members Andrew and Cecilia Heard. Andrew and Cecilia have three children: Sophia (3), Sebastian (1) and Stefani (1). The Heard family resides at 515 South 5th Street.

I want to thank our ZPD liaison Officer Drake Sterling for attending our last meeting to talk about summer safety. I also want to thank town council president Jeff Papa for attending and answering questions about the Zionsville-Perry Township Reorganization and other topics. Filmmaker Kimberly Stephens also spoke about a film project she is planning in Zionsville. Kimberly’s projects have been involved in the Heartland Film Festival in the past and she asked for volunteer actors and assistance with film locations. If interested in contacting her please reach out to me at and I will get you in touch with Kimberly.

It is great to see everyone out and about at the Farmer’s Market , Lincoln Park Concert Series and all the other great summer Zionsville events.

July 4th Celebration at Lions Park

(Rain location is the Zionsville Lions Clubhouse.) Parking in Lions Park is for a $5 donation. Food and drinks offered for a donation to Lions Club Park at each concert.

Sundays in the Park

My assignment this month was to write something in the Village Voice about the Sunday evening "Concerts in the Park". So off I went to to get the scoop. There I found the flyer (below) that explains about everything you would want to know about the four concerts in July.

Then I started browsing the rest of the website. Wow! Our Lions Club not only maintains our great park, they also host a variety of events. There is the Easter Egg Hunt, the 4th of July celebration, the Fall Festival, the Pumpkin and Hayrides event, the November Fruit Sale, in addition to the July Concerts in the Park! I guess I never put it together, but those Lions members really are responsible for a lot of what I love about our town. Thank you to this hard working bunch!

As I explored the website, I saw a tab for "Friends of the Park." There is information about how you can support the park (duh--they accept donations). Well, I couldn't get out my checkbook fast enough. Don't get me wrong. I am not a member and never thought about contributing before. I guess I took it all for granted. Part of my working life was organizing special events and I remember what hard work it was. Any contribution is welcome. Now if you feel like an ungrateful slacker, like I do, you can free yourself by sending a little something to the Zionsville Lions Club, P.O. Box 252, Zionsville, IN 46077. I feel better already!
