Holey Moley

Winter weather can’t keep Holey Moley and the rest of the Indiana 811 team from traveling across Indiana to promote the importance of calling Indiana 811. He recently traveled to Lucas Oil Stadium to visit the Colts Kids Club Extravaganza. Holey Moley and the Indiana 811 team also won an award at the Indiana Nursery and Landscape Association’s January trade show for Most Interactive Booth.

Paint the State 811 Green

Indiana 811 is seeking water or gas tanks in highly visible locations to display the 811 logo. Several facility owners across the country use their own tanks as oversized billboards for the 811 safe digging message, and now Indiana would like to paint the state green this March with the safe digging message.

If you know of a highly visible water tower or tank, please fill out the entry form found here and email the application, along with a photograph of the tank or landmark, to Chuck Muller at cmuller@indiana811.org no later than Wednesday, March 28. Indiana 811 would like to partner with facility owners to cover the cost of painting the 811 logo on towers, tanks and other structures.
