Benton Harbor continues tradition of annual Rotary Track Meet

NOW: Benton Harbor continues tradition of annual Rotary Track Meet

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. - A historic site for a historic event. What's believed to be Michigan's largest track and field meet once again took place, as Benton Harbor's Filstrup Field hosted the 62nd Annual Rotary Track Meet. Two dozen schools from Berrien County and surrounding areas met in competition, and as always, a few scholarships were awarded by the St. Joseph/Benton Harbor Rotary Club.
