So, I would appreciate help from you to nominate friends or relatives whom you think have stories which suit the criterias below:  of the project - Ripley 200.

WW2 & Korean War Veterans

I would love to honor all the living war veterans, especially those who served in WW2 and the Korean War, for their sacrifices. I want to help them tell their stories for the next generations. 

Faces Behind Places

There are many interesting places which exist in Ripley County.  I'm sure there are great stories of the person behind such places. 


Do you know of any living centenarians in Ripley County? Or anyone over 90 years old? I would love to tell their stories. 

Heroes Among Us

Do you know of an unsung hero whose good deed needs to be told to a larger audience? Great stories like this can be very inspirational for others and need to be shared. 


Do you know couples who have celebrated more than 20 years together? I would like to share their love story and their secret to a long lasting marriage.  


Do you know of an inventor who is living, or was from Ripley County? Let's tell their stories! 

Historic Achievements

Do you know of anyone who made a historic achievement worth being retold to the next generation?

Diverse Hoosiers

As a Malaysian who emigrated to Indiana in 2009 and made Ripley County my home, I would like to share the story of fellow immigrants who are living, or have lived, in Ripley County. I want to share some diverse stories in culture, heritage, and beliefs. Let's celebrate the diversity in our county and let our differences unite us all!
