Th e 117th Tiverton Institute will be held Wednesday and Th ursday, March 6-7, at the Tiverton Grange, CR 20 and SR 206. “It’s the people that put it on that make it work,” said Richard Border, who is part of the Tiverton Institute planning committee. “Th ey go the extra mile as far as trying to have speakers that will interest everybody.” Each day of the institute starts at 10 a.m. with coff ee and donuts and there also is a covered dish meal at noon. Wednesday’s schedule features the chocolate cake baking contest for adults and chocolate chip cookies and woodworking contest for children 16 and under. “Anyone is welcome to enter the contests,” Border said. Morning speakers will be Tammi Rogers on recycling and Emily Marrison and David Marrison from OSU Extension. “It’s always a lot of fun to come to the Tiverton Insti- tute,” Rogers said. “I like seeing the featured desserts for the contest and getting to taste the winner and other ones. Th ey are a good incentive for me to come speak.” Th e institute also is a good opportunity for her to edu- cate people on how to properly recycle. “People like to bag their recycling when they put it in the bins, but we like it loose,” Rogers said. “I’ll give them little tidbits like that to help them become better recy- clers.” “It’s the people that put it on that make it work. They go the extra mile as far as trying to have speakers that will interest everybody.” - Richard Border planning committ ee At 1 p.m. on Wednesday Chuck Ellis will speak on dairies in Coshocton County.

A soup supper will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. and at 7 p.m. there will be music by Gary Rahn and a skit by Tiverton Youth. “We are the only ones as far as I understand that still have a two-day institute,” Border said. “Originally it was called the Tiverton Farmers’ Institute and was a place for farmers to come sell seed corn, alfalfa, clover or grass seeds and the extension offi ce would come out. It was still called the farmers’ institute when we moved up here in 1977. People thought they couldn’t come because they weren’t farmers. Th e name along with the topics has changed over the years.” He added that they are also open for new suggestions on speakers. “If someone comes and says they want to do a seg- ment next year we will mark them down,” Border said. 10 a.m. Coff ee and Donuts Covered dish meal each day at noon Wednesday Baking Contest for adults – Chocolate Cake 16 and under – Chocolate Chip Cookies and Woodworking Morning Speakers: Tammi Rogers on Recycling Emily Marrison and David Marrison from OSU Extension 1 p.m. Speaker: Chuck Ellis – Dairies in Coshocton County 2 p.m. Speaker: Alice Hoover on The Birth of the Constitution 7 p.m. Speaker: Music by Amish School Children and Magic by Larry Pew Thursday Morning Speaker: Dave Snyder – Historical Homes of Coshocton County 1 p.m. Speaker: Dave Greer – The Village of Greer 2 p.m. Speaker: Ken Smailes – History 4 – 6 p.m.: Soup Supper 7 p.m.: Music by Gary Rahn; Skit by Tiverton Youth CES participating in Crayola ColorCycle program By Josie Sellers COSHOCTON – Students at Coshocton Elementary School are doing their part to help protect the environment thanks to the Crayola ColorCycle program. “I was doing research for work on the computer and came across this,” said Susie Mann, who is a title one teacher at the school. “It seemed like a school-friendly program and a way for us to recycle something we all use.” 14 THE BEACON Each teacher has a recycling box in their room for the students to put their dried up markers in. When the boxes are fi lled they fi nd their way back to Mann. “I print out the shipping label, FedEx picks them up and then off they go,” Mann said. “We just started at the fi rst of this year and we’ve already collected enough to send them in.” When Crayola receives the markers they use a process to convert the markers to energy. “What’s nice is they repurpose the entire marker and they don’t just have to be Crayola ones,” Mann said. Th e Crayola ColorCycle website, colorcycle.aspx, has lesson plans on it to help students understand the importance of recycling. “We are still building the program, but our goal is to do more explaining about recycling,” Mann said. “Right now we are continuing to work on promoting the pro- gram and putting posters about it up around school.” She believes they have collected close to 1,000 mark- ers. “Th at’s just a couple of weeks of what normally would have ended up in the trash,” Mann said.
