A group of individuals got together this week to honor the restoration of the Michigantown Gym. Former I-U great, Kent Benson was on hand to speak about basketball and the difference small communities can make when they come together for projects like this. Denny Shoup is with the Lions Club and says this project has been in the works for a while and he is happy to see it now put to good use. The gathering was spearheaded by local resident Leroy Goode, who recently turned 101 years old.
