►NBA All-Star 2021 Legacy Project
On Saturday, October 2nd, 2021 we commemorated the new gym floor of the Vernon Gymnasium with the 1st Annual Jennings County All-Township Basketball Tournament. The champions were the North Vernon Panthers!
The Vernon Gym floor was sanded and re-stained and backboards were replaced thanks to a $41,000 grant awarded to Friends of Historic Vernon (hyperlink: https://www.facebook.com/friendsofhistroricvernon) from the NBA as part of celebrations for the 2021 NBA All-Star Game.
On Tuesday, March 4th, 2021 the Town of Vernon was awarded a Next Level Trails grant by the State of Indiana to build a 0.75-mile paved trail connecting the Vernon Gym to the Vernon Commons, Indiana's First Public Playground, as well as, a 0.5 mile hiking and mountain biking trail connecting the Town of Vernon to the Vinegar Mill Overlook at Muscatatuck County Park. The project is currently in the site review step. Check back for more updates here!
