Governor’s office notifying torchbearers of honor

Letters have been sent out to the torchbearers for the Indiana Bicentennial Torch relay, including 32 people who are being asked to carry the bicentennial torch through Bartholomew County on September 18th.

Now organizers are just waiting to find out who has accepted the honor before releasing the names, says Lynn Lucas, the local organizer. Each torchbearer should have received a letter from Gov. Mike Pence and must fill out a form to accept the honor, Lucas said.

Lucas said that the names should be announced by the state by June 21st.
