Harrison County Extension Homemakers hosted International Day yesterday (Tuesday) at the Purdue Extension Office in Corydon. Blue River Hills coordinated the event, which featured a sing-along emceed by Karen Schwartz and featuring piano accompaniment by Jean Ann Parker. Thirty-plus people attended and participated by singing and listening to 45 eclectic songs from a variety of genres, including rock, gospel, pop, country, folk songs, TV and movie themes, patriotic, polkas and more. A sampling of selections included “Hey, Good Looking,” “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head,” “Back Home Again in Indiana,” “You Are My Sunshine,” “Church in the Wildwood,” “Nobody Loves Me Like You Do,” “Desperado,” “Sweet Georgia Brown,” “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad,” “Heart and Soul,” “Beer Barrel Polka,” “The Jeopardy Theme,” “Wipe Out” and “God Bless the USA.” Representatives of seven local clubs — Blue River Hills, New Middletown, Depauw, Fairview, Hoosier Heritage, Mauckport and Laconia — participated in the event. Attendees received a keepsake song book containing song lyrics. Door prize winners at the event were Wanda Chinn, Phyllis Faith, Barbara Benjamin and Krista Crawhorn.
