This fall, the Kelley School of Business Indianapolis has joined forces with the Indiana Association for Community Economic Development (IACED) to organize and manage the 2011 Homeward Bound event. It’s estimated that 4,500 to 7,500 people experience homelessness in Indianapolis every 12 months. As many as 3,000 children in our city are homeless or are living doubled up. Unfortunately, state and federal funding to help our displaced neighbors has been drastically cut. And Indiana’s poverty rate is higher than the national average at 16.3%, a disturbing statistic since poverty is the biggest predictor of homelessness.
Most of the agencies that help cure homelessness have tight budgets and reduced manpower at a time when the need for their services remains high. As a result, Homeward Bound was in jeopardy of not occurring this year. But, we are excited to announce that the 9th annual Homeward Bound event will take place on Monday, December 19th, 2011 at the City Market located in downtown Indianapolis. Registration begins at 5:30 p.m. followed by a 1-mile walk from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.  Awards, presentations by benefitting agencies will close the event and proceed until 8:30pm. The walk route will travel down Market Street, around Monument Circle northward and make its way back to the City Market. Subway spokesperson and Kelley alumnus Jared Fogle is the event’s spokesperson.
Registration is free at www.homewardboundindiana.org/central. A minimum donation of $20/$25 earns participants the Homeward Bound 2011 short-sleeved/long-sleeved t-shirt. . Prizes will be awarded to the team and individuals raising the most funds. All of the proceeds will be distributed amongst the 12 benefitting agencies: 
Aspire Indiana, Crooked Creek Community Development Center, Dayspring Center, Englewood Community Development Center, Gennesaret Free Clinics, Habitat for Humanity - http://indyhabitat.org, Hamilton County Area Neighborhood Development (HAND), Homeless Initiative Program, Horizon House, Interfaith Hospitality Network, Midtown Community Mental Health Center, Project Home Indy.
Kelley students say that “Homeward Bound gives us a chance to give back to the community and help our homeless neighbors get back on their feet. By taking part in this year’s one-mile walk, we will be sending the message that we are determined in giving help and giving hope to our neighbors during their desperate time of need.”
Jared Fogle, states that “On behalf of our homeless neighbors, thank you for helping to make Indianapolis a better place to live. You are critical to fighting homelessness, today more than ever. We thank you and your homeless neighbors thank you. I support the cause and hope you will too.”
Current sponsors include: indymojo.com, City Market, MIBOR, the Colts, IACED, the Lilly Endowment and the Kelley School of Business.

From Stuck to Flourishing:
Understanding Congregational Challenges,
Enacting Helpful Strategies
 Rev. Dr. Bill Kincaid
Saturday, November 19, 2011, 9 am - noon
This workshop will consider specific ways that flourishing congregations have addressed and worked through four common challenges that often plague stuck congregations. For example, flourishing congregations exhibit a remarkable consistency between their values and their behavior. Flourishing congregations also demonstrate clarity around their priorities, engage their work with a hopeful spirit, and deal with conflict and controversy when they surface. Participants will have the chance to describe ways and reasons their congregations are flourishing, discuss the challenges they continue to struggle with, and work collaboratively to design strategies that allow congregations to engage their ministry with new focus and energy.

Lace up the hiking boots for a special levee hike through Stillwater Marsh in Monroe County on Dec. 31.
 The hike will begin at 2 p.m. It’s free but limited to 20 participants. Registration is required by calling (812) 837-9546.
 Hikers will meet at the North Fork check station, east of Bloomington.
 During the winter and early spring, water is pumped into Stillwater Marsh from the north fork of Salt Creek to create an important resting area for waterfowl. In mid-April, the marsh is drained and then planted with wildlife food crops. The result is a rich habitat area for animals of all types.
 “If the water is open, we should see a nice variety of waterfowl,” said Jill Vance, interpretive naturalist for Monroe Lake, who will lead the hike. “If the water is iced over, we’ll turn our attention to other fauna and flora that inhabit the marsh.”
 Because Stillwater Marsh is closed to the public from mid-October to mid-April, this hike offers a unique opportunity to visit the habitat during the winter season.
 The hike will follow the levee road right through the middle of the flooded marsh. It’s an easy hike over flat terrain, with a total distance of about 1.75 miles.
 Monroe Lake is at 4850 South State Road 446, Bloomington, 47401.

The Indiana DNR is calling on bicyclists, canoeists and other recreational trail users to consider serving their state on the Trails Advisory Board (TAB).
The 14-member TAB advises DNR director Robert E. Carter Jr. on trails-related issues. Having a TAB is also a requirement for states to receive funding from the Recreational Trails Program through the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration. The state uses these funds to acquire and develop multi-use trails for both motorized and non-motorized use.
The TAB has five openings this year. Volunteers are expected to serve a three-year term and must be involved with a trails-oriented organization that represents one of the following trails-user groups.
–Bicyclists
–Off-road motorcyclists
–Parks and recreation agencies
–Water trail users
–Users with disabilities
Nominations and letters of support indicating why a nominee best represents a particular trails-interest group will be accepted by the DNR Division of Outdoor Recreation until Jan. 6, 2012.
To receive nomination instructions or learn more about the board, see dnr.IN.gov/outdoor and click on “Indiana Trails Advisory Board,” which is below the photos on the website.

Interested parties can also obtain the instructions and additional information by contacting David Cox at (317) 232-4067, dcox@dnr.IN.gov; or by mail or in person at DNR Outdoor Recreation, 402 W. Washington St. Room W271, Indianapolis, IN 46204-2782.

Leadership Lessons from the Shackleton Expedition
Noon – 1 p.m.
Leadership oftentimes displays itself amidst the most insurmountable odds. For 20 months, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his crew of 27 survived the Antarctic after their ship was trapped and crushed by ice in the Weddell Sea. Shackleton is acclaimed as a leader who put his men’s well-being above all else, but he also skillfully expressed his vision and understood how to build the right team.
Maintaining Morale: A Lesson in Leadership Management
Leaders must know how to maintain morale. One of the truly amazing observations about the Shackleton expedition was the way that Shackleton found ways to have parties and fun under truly horrendous circumstances. Shackleton understood the importance of celebration. He understood that the supply of morale was in many ways more important that even the supply of food.

This presentation is licensed by Disney Music Publishing and Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, Non Theatrical © Disney.

This unique symphonic and cinematic presentation was created by soundtrack editors who meticulously removed only the musical portions of the audio from the film, leaving all of the dialogue and other sound elements intact. The soundtrack edits allow the orchestra to perform the underscore, written by Klaus Badelt (music themes and production by Hans Zimmer), in live synchronization with the film for an exciting and powerful concert and movie experience.
