The town of Henryville is gathering this weekend to remember a day that forever changed everyone in the sleepy Indiana town.

The town will remember the victims of the March 2, 2012 tornados with a series of community events meant to honor the victims and celebrate the town's rebuilding Saturday afternoon.

Residents of the town says they wouldn't be where they are today without the support they received from across the country. The town was able to get its school rebuilt in five months and homes and businesses are being rebuilt, but residents say there is still a long way to go before Henryville will be back to normal.

Sherman "Budroe" Sykes says the town doesn't take weather warnings for granted anymore. Skyes' restaurant became a landmark in the town after the tornado tossed a school bus through the front door. He managed to get his eatery back open in five months, the same day that school started in the new Henryville Junior/ Senior High School across the street.
