Friday, July 29, marked the tenth Albionopoly game on the square! We are so grateful that this community comes together to offer this unique, fun, life-sized game around the courthouse square year after year. This event, and all of the work of the Albion STAR Team, is
made possible by many local businesses and individuals who share a passion for helping to make downtown Albion a welcoming, inclusive, vibrant place to gather, eat, drink, shop, and play.
Congratulations to the 2022 grand prize winning team, Room-2-Room! This marked the second consecutive year that Room-2-Room monopolized first place! Newman’s Team #1 took second place and Newman’s Team #2 (Marla Burtkus) came in third.
Room-2- Room also took home the Best Game Piece win. Best Decoration by board sponsors was won by the Noble County Public Library for their colorful sidewalk art on the north side of the square. Many others did a great job decorating this year, thank you!
