We here at Wayne Township just finished up a couple of major events, namely a sign-up day for pharmaceutical savings cards and the awards banquet for our 3rd annual Computer Explorers camp. We enjoyed a small breather, but the momentum continues for us. On Saturday, August 10th, we participated in the Black Expo parade and had a great time.

Lets review the situation we were facing.

1) Over the past two years, Indiana had lost over 110,000 jobs, many of them high paying manufacturing jobs.
