Entry Description
State Representative Randy Frye (R-Greensburg) honored the volunteers during the Holton tornado in a resolution on Monday, January 27th at the Statehouse. 

On March 2, 2012, an F3 tornado touched down in the town of Holton. One hundred groups of volunteers flocked to the area in order to aide in the recovery efforts. 

“I authored this resolution to identify and bring honor to the many men and women who gave their time, money and support to the town of Holton during one of its darkest moments,” said Rep. Frye. “I was touched by the selflessness and compassion that these volunteers showed, and this resolution is the least I can do to show our immense appreciation.”

The Holton Long Term Recovery Group Executive Committee included Rachel Grossman, Bob McCreary, Norm Knudson, Richard Sproessig and leader, Darin Kroger. Sally Morris served as Director of the Long Term Recovery’s fiscal agent, the Ripley Community Foundation. 

Additional volunteers included:
International Disaster Emergency Service 
Hopewell Baptist Church
Catholic Charities/St Johns
United Methodist Committee on Relief
Lilly Endowment Inc.
Brethren Disaster
Mennonite Disaster Recovery
Napoleon State Bank
Holton Volunteer Fire Department
Ripley County Community Foundation
Holton Christian Church
Crossroads missions
Holton Police Department
Ripley County Sheriff’s Department
Indiana State Police
Indiana Department of Homeland Security

“During times of need, Hoosiers never hesitate to lend a helping hand. About 40,000 volunteers dropped everything to help complete strangers, and the town also received public donations totaling $288, 655,” said Rep. Frye. “The innate goodness of humanity was on full display in Holton. They will never forget this devastating tornado, but they will also never forget all of the support they received in its aftermath."
