Girls on the Run of Southwest Indiana will be hosting a cornhole tournament to help raise money for girls in the Evansville area this August.

Cornhole might as well be America's newest favorite pass time. There are so many people (especially in our area) who are avid cornholers who love to play recreationally at home with friends, as well as compete in tournaments in the region. If you are one of those people who love playing the game, while giving back to the community, there is a cornhole tournament coming up that is just for you.

Girls on the Run of Southwest Indiana Cornhole Tournament

According to Carol Seiler, a representative with Girls on the Run of Southwest Indiana:

This will be one of our biggest fundraisers of the year.  Money raised from this event will go towards our 2023 season that begins in February 2023.  Money goes towards the program providing healthy snacks for the girls, materials, and shoes for all scholarships.  All girls can participate in GOTR no matter their physical ability nor their inability to pay for the program.  Financial aid is available through scholarships.  Money raised from this event goes toward scholarships as well.  The goal is to service potentially 7 schools in Vanderburgh County this year.

See How Downtown Evansville Has Changed Over the Years

I find looking back on the way things used to be fascinating. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I'm living through the current time period. The conveniences of answering any question we have in seconds, or ordering practically anything we want or need and having it delivered to our doorstep is pretty sweet. But, there is something fun about seeing how things around us have evolved. As an Evansville native, and spending quite a bit of my time in downtown Evansville (that's where the station is located), I've always appreciated the older architecture of the buildings around the area. So, I dug into the Willard Library Archives to see how a few of those areas look now compared to then. Some have changed a little, others quite a bit, and a few don't even exist any more. Take a look.
