Heartland Cloggers dance on in spite of theft

(Continued)

Whatever the case may be, Lois and her friends have made one thing perfectly clear: They’re not giving up.

In the meantime, Greensburg Chief of Police Stacey Chasteen, who has officers investigating the break-in, told the Daily News that recovery of lost items in situations such as these is “about 50-50.” Lois contacted local pawn shops at the suggestion of local police, but has yet to recover anything she lost last weekend.

Whether or not Lois and friends ever see the pieces of their sound system again, the group isn’t about to give up doing what they love.

The Heartland Cloggers dance to everything from Gospel music to contemporary hip-hop, all in the hopes of giving smiles to members of their audience. They have met fellow folk dancers at conventions across the country and have attended functions together in Gatlinburg, Tenn. A favorite nearby destination for their shows is the Chateau in Batesville.

In the end, however, the venue matters little for the ladies of the Heartland Cloggers.

“We’ve done nursing homes, the county fair, state fair, several festivals,” Lois said, attempting to count the myriad places in which she and her dancing sisters have performed.

“I just don’t know why someone would do this,” she said when discussing the theft earlier this week. “I think it’s just a shame.”

If any reader has information regarding the recent theft at the East North Street home of Lois Bridges, contact the Greensburg Police Department at 812-663-3131. Anonymous tips may be left for detectives at 812-66CRIME.
