Thanks to Tosha Daugherty, Executive Director of Visit Morgan County for sharing this information with us!

Are you, or someone you know, a transplant to Indiana? The Indiana Destination Development Corporation is looking for “Hoosiers by Choice” who are willing to share their stories and their reasons for becoming a Hoosier.

We’d love to have Morgan County represented in this initiative if you know of someone who’s a good fit. I can help with creating the video if needed.

Here’s some additional info on the program and how to participate:
