The Hoosier Mets
Celebrated our 10th
anniversary during the month of September, 2001.
The idea of starting a
chapter of MOCNA in Indiana
was born in Louisville, KY at the MOCNA

inviting them to join the Hoosier Mets chapter. Our
dues started out at $5.00 per year, and are still that
The initial response was phenomenal. We got over 20
members right away, and at our first meeting, in New Castle,
the attendance was over 25 people.
Indiana DID need a chapter for the Met.

Our anniversary was celebrated in the town of Tipton, IN,
conjunction with the WORLD FAMOUS Pork Festival.
The theme is of course, PIGS. All of the Hoosier Mets
who brought their cars decorated them with
stuffed pigs (the fluffy ones, of course).

We won 1st Place in the parade we were in.
So, here we are, 15 years
later, stronger than ever, with a membership
of over 90 families. Our meetings always have in attendance
about 30 or more
members and guests. We wanted to have that kind of attendance
or better at our celebration of 15 years of success and we
