Jasper, Indiana has Advanced to the Elite 8 in The 2022 Strongest Town Contest
When I hear the town of Jasper, Indiana mentioned, several memories come to mind. Back in the day, I worked for Nobel Romans Pizza and there was a location in Jasper. I also worked for Buehler's Buy-Low in the 90s and the corporate headquarters was located in Jasper. There was also the time that I almost drove off of the road because I was distracted by a giant flag as I drove into town. Of course, Jasper is known for a lot more than my silly stories, and the small town in Indiana is getting some national attention.
