Disinger Kruger Jewelers - Night Glow Diamond

This Huntingburg Jeweler is offering a diamond that not only sparkles during the day, but sparkles at night.

Disinger Kruger recently got a patent for their Night Glow Diamonds.

The diamonds are cut a specific way to allow light through them.

Underneath the diamond is a glow in the dark membrane that gathers the light and allows the diamond to glow.

The diamonds are only available at the Huntingburg store.

See more articles on their website for exclusive interviews on Disinger Kruger's new Diamond.

Junior Achievement Needs You!

Teaching Junior Achievement classes is an excellent opportunity to be involved and give back to our community. We all had adults that helped us in so many ways as kids and it’s my hope that by teaching JA classes that I help at least one student figure out what career path to follow, how to be successful financially, or make an impact on them when they go to their first job interview. Volunteerism and JA are important to our community by bringing us together to help build stronger and wiser youth for their own benefit and that of our city and county. Teaching JA is a very rewarding opportunity and I enjoy every class that I teach.

-Vickie Lewis, JA Volunteer at Southridge Middle School

Chamber Chatter

Hello Everyone! Thank you for keeping up with the Huntingburg Chamber and the goings-on of our great community. I hope you are enjoying the new format for our Newsletter and hope it proves to be useful to you as a member or public reader.

This section here for "Chamber Talk" is where I, the Chamber Director, would like to share anything new with the Chamber or myself.

Here we go.....

I recently filled out an application for a program/class through USI called "Connect with Southern Indiana." There were some really amazing questions on the application that got me thinking about my, still new position as the Executive Director of the Huntingburg Chamber.

A question that stuck out to me was:

Describe an issue in your community that you want to explore in this project and the significance of the issue to your community.

My Answer:

"History is made by those generations that look to change the future. Change and growth are possible if we only look to the generations behind us for inspiration. They are the future and will keep this community growing if we only let them succeed."

This question has brought great meaning to me for what I hope to do for our community and I would love for you to share that passion with me. My hope is to keep the wonderful History we have here in our community but bring in the new generation so they can create their own mark in history as well.
