Day Nursery IndianapolisThe forecast for Friday is sunny (finally!) and 63 degrees.  Sounds like a perfect day for a glass of lemonade.  The 5 year old entrepreneurs at the Day Nursery Start Smart 4 Children would love to have you stop by their lemonade stand on Friday for an ice cold glass of lemonade.  Here’s a picture of their sales force.  How could you resist these smiling faces?? 

PS-It’s $1.00 a cup or $3.00 for a 32 oz jug.

In Memorium: Betsy Scheuring

May 2007 Day Nursery Auxiliary Annual Meeting Meridian Hills Country Club

Katherine L. “Betsy” Scheuring passed away on April 19, 2011. Betsy was a life member of the Day Nursery Auxiliary and was our most senior member. Betsy joined the Auxiliary in 1938
She was born in Indianapolis on June 29, 1918 to William D. and Mary K. Hamerstadt. She was a graduate of Shortridge High School and attended the Semple School in New York, where she studied dance under Michael Fokine, one of the greatest Russian expatriates of that time, from the communist regime. She opened a dance studio, “Les Petites Artistes de Ballet”, in her home where she taught children and adults for over 30 years, finally retiring in 1985.
Betsy was a long-time patron of the fine arts in Indianapolis with particular emphasis on ballet. She had been an avid supporter of Ballet Internationale and The Butler Ballet, and was a long-time associate and friend of faculty and students alike. During dance related trips abroad, Betsy became interested in Russian art, and over a period spanning more than thirty years, she amassed a significant collection of Russian icons which she gifted to Purdue University in 2005.
She and her late husband Paul had been long time members of the Columbia Club and Atheneum Turners and Trinity Episcopal Church. She also was a life member of the Indianapolis Day Nursery.
In addition to her late husband, Betsy was preceded in death by her brothers Bill and John Hamerstadt, and her sister Mary Jane Demarest. Survivors include a daughter Margo Scheuring, sons Paul (Melody) and John (Jeanne) Scheuring, several nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to The Indianapolis Humane Society, 7929 Michigan Road, Indianapolis, IN 46268, or to the donor’s favorite charity.
Calling will be held at Flanner and Buchanan Funeral Center-Broad Ripple on Monday, April 25, 2011 from 4:00 to 8:00 PM with services 11:30 AM Tuesday, April 26, 2011 at Trinity Episcopal Church, 33rd and Meridian St., Indianapolis. Private interment will be at Crown Hill Cemetery.
The family would like to extend their sincere thanks to the staff at Marquette Manor and St. Vincent’s Hospice, for their care and compassion during Betsy’s final days.

Day Nursery Federal Center participates in Great Shakeout

Children and staff at the Day Nursery Federal Center, downtown Indianapolis joined Indiana residents yesterday morning in a statewide earthquake preparedness drill called the Great Central U.S. ShakeOut.

Quakes are rarely felt here, but some of the strongest in the continental United States occurred along the New Madrid fault in southeastern Missouri in 1812, shaking the Indiana Territory as well.

The strongest ever to hit Indiana was a 5.1-magnitude temblor in 1909.

Day Nursery Federal Center Director Sarah Parks found two websites very helpful in preparing her staff and students for the earthquake drill. “They suggested you get under a desk/table and hold onto it…be prepared to “move with your shelter.”  One of the websites discusses that doorways are no longer thought to be a safe place…get under something.  That doorways were left standing in areas with mud roofs because they were the strongest there.  Most buildings in the US, the doorways are no stronger than the rest.  It also discusses that buildings collapsing are not always likely…you are much more likely to get hit by falling objects, hence the reason for being under the table & hanging onto it.” Check out these two websites Drop Cover and Hold On and ShakeOut so you and your family will be prepared should an earthquake strike.
