Calendar of Meetings and Events
The Vigo County Pachyderm has two regular meetings per month:
The "bring your own" lunch and dinner meetings are held on the 2nd & 4th Wednesday of each month in the Pachyderm Room in the lower level of Meadows Shopping Center, 2800 Poplar St. Suite 45D (below Ace Hardware) at 11:45a.m.
The evening meeting is held on the 4th Wednesday (5th in Nov. and Dec.) in the same location: Meadows Shopping Center, 2800 Poplar St. beneath Ace Hardware at 5:45 p.m.
There are a variety of ways to get involved with the Vigo County Pachyderm. One way is to attend events and show support of our mission. Another way is to volunteer at the event, which could involve tasks such as helping to set up, manning a booth or activity, or assisting with clean-up. Individuals can also contribute to the event by making a donation or becoming a sponsor. Additionally, people can participate by promoting the event to their friends and family, by sharing information about it on social media, or by helping to spread the word through other channels.
