Representatives from more
than 30 volunteer fire
departments in southern
Indiana and Milton, Ky., plus
local police and EMS agencies,
all of whom took part in
fighting the May 20 fire,
received plaques from the
County Commissioners as part
of the ceremony Aug. 26.

A group shot was taken of representatives from the many area volunteer fire departments in southern Indiana and Milton, Ky. The Honorable Randall T. Shepard, Chief Justice of Indiana, was the keynote speaker.
Then the crowd was invited in to tour the newly restored building, complete with a new elevator.
Officials hung the new courtroom seals in both courtrooms – that of Superior Court Judge Alison Frazier and Circuit Court Judge Ted Todd.
Tours of the courthouse were offered to the public the following day on Saturday, Aug. 27.
