New site for sharing Hoosier stories launches

– Hoosiers can swap stories about Indiana on a new website built to bring current and former residents together for the state’s upcoming bicentennial.

The Indiana Bicentennial Commission launched the site Monday to get residents talking about the perks of living in the state. The commission is tasked with organizing celebrations for Indiana’s 200th birthday in 2016.
