PLANKINTON — Hundreds of hands, young and old, clasped together around the block Wednesday at the old Plankinton school site.
It symbolized how this community remains united 10 years after an explosion destroyed its school.
Inside the new gym named after the victims of the fatal Nov. 17, 2000, propane explosion, J.P. Studeny, then-school board president, recalled the events that led up to the community’s world being turned upside down.
