Frank “Pops” Holloway, passed away July 13, 2013. Frank was 99 years old. A memorial fund was established by the Holloway family for PHS Athletics.
A Plymouth fan of all sports, he had a history of over 65 years of supporting Big Red athletic teams. “Pops” consistently came early to PHS games and could be counted on rain or shine for his support. He was a charter member of the Plymouth Athletic Booster Club.

Make plans now to park at the high school for the Blueberry Festival. This is an annual fundraiser for the PHS band, choir, robotics, speech and debate, stage crew, acting, broadcasting, Spanish, AFS, Portuguese, and LJH speech team. These groups work long hours all week preparing the grounds for all of the visitors and then spend all weekend in the school parking lots parking all of the visitors.
The cost is $8.00 for a daily pass or $16.00 for a weekend pass that lets you go in and out of the lot all four days of the festival. The PHS parking lot is the Official Blueberry Parking so proceeds also go to Blueberry and to the Moose who run the trams that transport visitors from PHS into the festival.
The PHS lot is the only parking lot that gives the tram passes with their parking passes.
In the interest of improving safety for all athletes, the start time for the football game this Friday, August 29, 2014, at Rochester has been pushed back to 7:30 p.m.
The heat index temperature is predicted to be near 88 degrees but is expected to drop quickly after sunset. Moving the game back allows teams to take advantage of the cooler evening conditions, and will help reduce cramps and lessen the likelihood of heat related illness.
The Marshall County Museum Historic Crossroads Center and the Weidner School of Inquiry are collaborating on a project that focuses on the war experiences of local WWII veterans. The students will be interviewing more than 35 local WWII veterans about their personal WWII experiences. The interviews will be captured on video and the finished product will be presented to the museum to be used as part of a permanent exhibit enhancing the artifacts and memorabilia that are already part of a museum collection in the Military Room. WSOI also intends to submit the finalized footage to the Indiana History Museum.
The addition of the video footage will make the Historical Museum Military exhibit come to life with “real stories” about “real people” from our community. This endeavor will not only educate the local high school students who will be working on the project, but also patrons of the museum will be able to see and hear the story of how lives were forever changed and impacted by WWII.

The PHS Boys Basketball Program made a donation to the Marshall County Community Foundation to help fund the Freedom Park project. Coach Bales presented Marla Murasko, who was there on behalf of the MCCF, with a check prior to the round. With the huge support from sponsorships and teams participating in the event, the majority of funds raised will go to support the boys basketball program needs.
Head Coach Ryan Bales said, "The outing was a huge success. The success was a direct result of great teamwork of coaches, parent volunteers, and Pat Bayley and Brad Parkhurst of PCC. On behalf of the PHS Boys Basketball players and coaches, we extend a huge thank you to our local businesses and supporters. We are fortunate to live in the generous, supportive community of Plymouth".
