(Vevay, Ind.) – The Town of Vevay has been awarded significant funding to rehabilitate the Vevay Hoosier Theater.

Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch and the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs today announced 13 rural Indiana communities will receive more than $8 million in federal grant funding to create and expand community facilities, remove blight and improve water infrastructure.
