ELKHART — Even though programming at the Tolson Center hasn’t existed since the summer of 2018, young people have been able to play basketball there in the first six months of 2019, through the community’s generosity.

Gym Rats Basketball, led locally by Ken Hunt, opened the Tolson doors on Jan. 7 for basketball four days a week through June. The Community Foundation of Elkhart County agreed to pay the rent to the Parks & Recreation Department.
