PANA -- Christian County used to be home to the popular Tanner Drive-In, but, for nearly two decades, the Our Town property has been home to something else. The ten acres is now the Tanner Park Sports Complex. It has soccer, baseball and softball fields.

The complex was built in 1996 and is maintained by volunteers, including Al Stupek. He says the complex is filling a vital need in the Pana community.

He realized the dream while passing the old drive-in on a bike ride. The complex also got a jump start from two banks in Pana and continues to be funded through donations.
