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.
