Registration for the 2018 Arc in the Park 3K/5K/10K run/walk is open. You can click the tab above to go right to the event information which includes the link to the registration form.

The response to our Sponsorship requests have been great but we still have room for a few more sponsors. Sponsorship includes your company logo on the back of the Arc in the Park 2018 t-shirts.

We are looking for lots more walkers and runners. Please share this information with your family, friends and neighbors. You can also go to the Arc’s Facebook page and share our event information on your Facebook to get the word out.

Watch for more announcements about Arc in the Park Near Dark on Fridays leading up to the event both here and on Facebook. We have lots of changes this year to bring more folks out for the event. There will be something for EVERYONE!

This is the Tippy Arc’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Last year we raised over $3,000 for the direct services programs. This included the cost of the Holiday Dinner and Dance, Water Wars at Happy Hollow Park and lots of other great events. We are hoping to raise even more money this year to cover the expansion of the children’s programs and to support field trips to the Indianapolis Children’s Museum and Zoo for Arc Members of all ages and their family/staff. We need your help to do this!! Walk, Run, Recruit Runners, Dance and SHARE,SHARE,SHARE!!

Thanks for supporting The Arc of Tippecanoe County!

As part of our 2018 Strategic Plan, we are doing a short survey of Arc members who are parents of children ages 5 to 18. Our children programs last year were Super Star Social Club and SPARKS on the GO. The survey is very short…just three questions and two comment areas…but will help us as we plan programs for 2018. We would like responses to the survey by February 20th for our Board meeting.

Just a reminder in 2017:

Super Star Social Club is open to kids from 6th grade through high school. The group meets and does various activities. Last year these activities included: Bowling, Bingo, Water Wars, Cupcake decorating, Rock Painting and Arctober Fest.

SPARKS on the GO is our field trip program for families of kids ages 5 to 17. Last year this group had two activities: Prophetstown Pool and Exploration Acres.

Thank you for your input!

Tonight’s Valentine’s Dance at Bauer Community Center is being postponed due to weather. The conditions outside are very slick and we do not want anyone to  be hurt at the event or traveling. We have sent an email out to everyone who rsvp’d for the event…which is another reason it is good to rsvp so we can contact you if we have a problem… and have posted on social media and sent emails out to the Adult Recreation and Newsletter lists. If you know someone who was planning to attend, reach out and let them know the event is postponed.

I do not know the information about when the event will be rescheduled but will let you know as soon as I do.

Thanks for understanding! We want to keep everyone safe at our Arc events.

Who is ready for our annual trip to Mackey Arena to support our Lady Boilers?!? We will be attending the Michigan game on Saturday, February 24th at 2:00 pm. Tickets will be $5 per person and everyone who attends the game must have a ticket.

To attend this event you must RSVP to by February 15th AND get your ticket money to Milissa O’Hern. Money can be mailed to PO Box 1222 Lafayette IN 47902-1222 or dropped off at the new Arc office at the Greenbush IU Arnett Clinic office (2600 Greenbush Street, room 3101) on February 15th between 4 and 6 pm. The new office at Greenbush is not like our office at Salem Street. You cannot slide things under the door without someone being at the office. Mailing is probably the easiest method.
