It sure was fun while it lasted.
Decatur-area residents enjoyed a preview of what's ahead part of Saturday and all of Sunday as spring weather was sprung across the area. Walkers were everywhere, as were motorcycles and bicycles, and a few air conditioners were cranked up.
A high of 84 degrees was recorded at the Decatur weather station Sunday, a day awash in sunshine.
Northwest Elementary School in Decatur will take part this year in the eighth annual Indianapolis 500 Education Program Study (EPS) trips.
Local fourth graders will be part of 10 trips to the 500 Indianapolis Motor Speedway next Tuesday. Fourth graders are chosen because it is in that grade that students are taught Indiana history.
This year, 321 schools across Indiana are taking part in the trips, with almost 24,000 students involved.
