Sponsor sought for Chesterton Cruise Night

Back To Front Page



The Chesterton Park Department will once again hold its Cruise Night event in Downtown Chesterton this year, on the last Saturday of the month, from May through September.

Park Board Member Paul Shinn, however, would like to see a local classic car club sponsor Cruise Night, as a way of getting the word out to buffs throughout the region and making it bigger and better.

Interested organizations can contact Superintendent Bruce Mathias or else appear before the board, which meets at 6 p.m. the first Tuesday of the month at the Chesterton town hall, 726 Broadway.

Boxcar Restroom

In other business, members voted unanimously to approve a partial payment of $32,918.45 to Larson-Danielson Construction of LaPorte, the contractor on the boxcar restroom in Thomas Centennial Park.

In related business, Mathias told the board that a 30-foot utility pole will be erected near the boxcar to which floodlights and a security camera will be fixed.


Meanwhile, Town Engineer Mark O’Dell reported that work on the Waskom and Kipper park rehab projects “is on hold with the weather.”

“There’s still a lot of work to do,” he added.

Assistant Superintendent

President Candy Tucker, for her part, reported that interviews for the position of Assistant Park Superintendent “are going very well” and that she hopes to “have them wrapped up by the end of the month.”

New Member

Tucker also welcomed the Park Board’s newest member, Wendy Marciniak, the executive director of the Chesterton Art Center who worked closely with the board last year on the installation of selfie walls at the new restroom facility at Dogwood Park.
