This past weekend was a very busy one in Hamilton County! The My Marsh Classic golf tournament took place as did the Nickel Plate Arts Weekend. Here's a little bit of what happened at both popular events:
My Marsh Classic covered 6,336 yards of green at the Hawthorns Golf And County Club with 144 female golfers competing for a total of $100,000 in rewards. The June 1-3rd tournament ticket sales benefited Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) and spectators were welcomed to watch the girls compete neck and neck in the competition.
Congratulations to the winner of My Marsh Classic, Sara Brown! Brown ended strong by shooting 3 under par for her final round and was awarded the grand prize of $15,000. Brown's bubbly personality was filled with emotions as she shot her final round. Victoria Elizabeth finished close behind and took home second with an award of $9,249.

Here's an account from Judy, our Community and Events Manager, who spent some time at the Nickel Plate Arts Weekend:
This past Saturday some friends and I decided to go take part in the Nickel Plate Arts Weekend. We started in Noblesville around 9:30am and took in some of the Old Mill Festival that was taking place around the Square. While we there we even caught a couple of the last bed races. From what we could see everyone was having a good time and my hat goes off to the Noblesville Parks Department for putting the bed races on. Large crowds where gathering around the Square some shopping and others walking around and some enjoying the pancake breakfast that the Lions Club hosted. We hated to leave but we had more stops to make farther north in Hamilton County.
Next stop was Cicero and we only got to see a couple of the painted rain barrels since most of them had been purchased already. We did get to see 3 of the 16 painted umbrellas Hamilton County had on display along the Nickel Plate Trail.
After a short stop in Cicero we headed to Arcadia. We decided to have lunch at Brickhouse Grill and cupcakes from Sugar Beans Cupcakes- both were very good! As we were heading back to the car, we caught a glimpse of the Indiana Transportation Museum's Art Train that was headed to Tipton. Our last stop on the trail was Tipton and we spent most of our time in Horton's of Tipton. Again my friends found lots of wonderful things to purchase!
I love living in Hamilton County because of all the great things that are happening throughout the county. You don't have to spend much money to have a good time and discover new things!
