The 7th Annual Seabrook Island Indiana Day celebrated the 201st anniversary of Indiana’s admission to the union. On Dec. 11, 1816 Indiana was admitted to the union and this year 43 Hoosiers gathered on Dec. 4 to commemorate the event. The organizing committee for this annual event was composed of Sam Reed, Jim Bannwart, Pat Greubel, Cindy Willis, Max Willis, Alan Armstrong and Valerie Doane. The Hoosier festivities were celebrated at the Oyster Catcher Community Center with heavy hors d’oeuvres, drinks, Indiana Trivia, Indoor Basketball Hoops, auction, singing and much Hoosier camaraderie.
All were treated to the music of famous Hoosier composers, Cole Porter and Hoagy Carmichael. The winning Indiana Trivia Team was comprised of Dean Goodwin, Kathy Bauhs, Cindy Willis, and Chick Vladuchick. The winning Indoor Basketball Hoops team was comprised of Dave Krumwiede, Jim Bannwart, Ron Ciancio, Susan Coomer, Sherri Goodwin, Valerie Luzadder and Mark Doane.
