2015 Gathering

The 2015 theme was Electrifying Our Future: Alone we create static, together we are the energy which powers our future. You feel it, don’t you? The positive current of change --- the pulse of the city.  There is momentum building in Indy, and you are part of it!  When we connect with neighbors young and old from across the city to share our success stories, we become informed and re-energized ---creating a brighter future for our communities. Together, we generate the power needed to electrify our future!
