Indiana County Excellence in Education

The Indiana County Chamber of Commerce announces a new initiative to recognize excellent work being done by Indiana County teachers and students.  The initiative, in partnership with the Colonial Family of Dealerships, highlights various students and teachers from each of the seven county public school districts as well as Indiana County Technology Center (ICTC) throughout the school year, and will culminate with the Indiana County Excellence in Education Awards in the spring 0f 2023.  One student and one teacher will be selected, with each being awarded a brand-new automobile donated by Colonial.  Charles “CJ” Spadafora, owner of Colonial Motor Mart and Colonial Toyota, stated that he had been looking for a way to give back that would help to shape the future members of the community. “Our company wants to give back to the community and felt as if the next generation and the teachers who are educating them do not get a lot of recognition,” Spadafora explained.  “This is our way of saying thank you for allowing our family to be here for over 75 years, and we hope that we will be here for at least 75 more.

INDIANA LITTLE LEAGUE

The Indiana Little League Complex is now sporting 3 brand new turf fields. It was a labor of love for the Colonial Auto Group and the Chuck Spadafora Family Fund, which provided $100,000 of the $275,000 cost. Colonial is proud to support the Indiana Little League as the Spadafora family has had a strong connection with this field for generations. The hope is that the new turf will provide more enjoyment for the little league teams of Indiana.
