Morocco Projects Unlimited

Founded in 1958

P.O. Box 95

Projects Unlimited was founded in 1958 for the purpose of getting a community pool in Morocco. The group started with five or six women who convinced their husbands and various businesses in the area that a pool was needed. The pool was completed in 1961 at a cost of $40,000. The group soon grew to 32 members. Fifty-two years later, the members are still working on projects that benefit the Moroco community - whether it be the Easter Egg Hunt, Pictures with Santa, Longaberger Basket Bingo, Leadership Scholarship, Discover Science Summer Camp, Morocco Homecoming, landscaping of Kessler Park or Morocco signs, State Steet flag poles, or the countless other projects that the members take on. All projects have been accomplished with the generous support of the Morocco and surrounding communities.

Membership is open to anyone who has an interest in improving Morocco. We are always looking for new members and new ideas. There are three charter members who are still active in the Club - Betty Kessler, Ruth Ann Shirer and Selma Smart.
