Tonight at the Frankfort Library ( Skanta Theater) as a part of Hoosier Storytellers Lindy was interviewed by Michael Clossin. In the interview Lindy told about her journey from high school in Frankfort Indiana, college, her many positions in media, and her journey with cancer. Lindy beat cancer not only once but has rang that bell again and is cancer free.

It was a great turn out for the Hoosier Storytelling event. Lindy took time out for a few photos with our Mayor Judy Sheets, Bill Miller, and a few others.

There was also a question and answer session in which Lindy graciously answered questions from the audience before leaving to try and get some rest before airing at the very early hour of 4 am on Fox 59 News.

Thank You Lindy for never forgetting your home town.
