Celebrating 200 years

Join a Team

Our main committees were formed as we began planning for our celebration in 2019. However, at this stage, as event opportunities arise, we can always use new team members. It's not too late to join a team and be a part of the celebration!


Volunteer Opportunities

Eclipse Team

The Total Eclipse takes place on April 8, 2024 during our bicentennial celebration year. This is going to be a huge event as Morgan County and Mooresville will have some of the longest viewing times. This team has already been working and planning for a weekend long festival leading up to Eclipse day on Monday, April 8. The team meets now through the eclipse on April 8, 2024.

We need people who can attend a monthly evening meeting, people who can take assignments and run with them, people who are dependable and will follow through! Does this sound like you? If so, contact Gina Shelby at 317-492-1985.

Mutt Strut 200 Dog Walk

Do you love dogs? We need three or four more people to be on this planning committee. The Mutt Strut is set for Saturday morning June 8th, 2024. We hope to gather 200 dogs for a walk (with different starting times) at Pioneer Park! Pet Vendors will be on sight along with reduced vaccine prices and pet adoptions. The tentative time is from 7 a.m. to noon. Team helpers will need to attend several meetings this year leading up to the event (assignments given at meetings) and help with registration and as needed the day of the event. Interested? Contact Wendy Spoor team leader at 317-727-1677

Merchandise Team

If you are a store owner, like interacting with people, or are knowledgeable about sales, this may be the team for you! We need people to join this team and attend some meetings this year (times determined by the team leader) as well as help sell Mooresville 200 merchandise at events throughout 2024. Times will vary and you would not be required to be at every event! The more people trained for selling merchandise, the more we can divide the events. Interested? Please contact team leaders Gina Shelby 317-492-1985 or Rebecca Williams 317-834-4680.

Arts Team

The Arts Team needs volunteers for various events this year and 2024. The first event which is Saturday, September 9 during the street fair from 10am to 3:00 pm. Shifts will be divided. You don't have to be artistic! The public will be at Bicentennial Park painting tiles. Art Team Volunteers will be giving instructions (just read off a sheet) and selling the tiles for those who want to paint one for a mosaic mural that will be on display next year. Other Art events (next year) will need help as well. Contact Art Team leader Melissa Edens if interested 317-446-3854.

Idea submissions

We have a lot of great ideas but there's always room for more at this stage in the planning. Just please remember, not all ideas will be used. Most likely once the plans and events rollout during the celebration in 2024, they will be a combination of several ideas coming together.
