On December First, 2018, the City of Taylorville changed forever, when an EF-3 tornado hit the community.
On Sunday, Taylorville mayor Bruce Barry hosted an event at the V-F-W to commemorate the first anniversary of the tornado, and honored the hundreds of people that have helped in recovery. Over 250 attended, and WMKR Genuine Country 94-point-3 broadcast the event live.
Missions for Taylorville spokesman Pastor Bill Kerns told the gathering that while their organization, which has been the primary vehicle for donated funds the past year, has done much for those affected, many still need assistance to rebuild.
