Bicentennial Torch Discussed at Kentland Rotary
On Monday, September 26, Larry Lyons of Brook discussed his role as the coordinator for the Newton County section of the running of the Indiana Bicentennial Torch.  The torch has 10 runners representing the South Newton School District including John Frischie and his wife Sue.  The torch is scheduled to be handed off from Jasper County near Fair Oaks at 1:00 on Tuesday October 11, and then after passing through various towns in Newton County, it is anticipated to take a lap around the Newton County courthouse in Kentland between 2:30 and 3:15 before being passed on to Benton County around 3:30.  Mr. Lyons discussed his memories of events that took place here in Kentland for the United States Bicentennial and why his role in that local event helped inspire him to take on this role.  In the presentation he named all of the 10 runners and how they have all been very active in their communities in making an impact and contributing in various projects over the years.
