At our last meeting in April we failed to choose a theme for our trivia questions for the May meetings. An email to all members requesting suggestions brought in two, one of which notes that May is national bicycling month. So, this is easy. The trivia question theme for MAY is: BICYCLING. 
Mark your calendar for May 19, 2018 for the running of the 26th annual Gallery Gallop. Last year's event is pictured here with over 100 runners and walkers. The help of all Gary Rotarians will be needed on that day. Please plan to be a part of it. More details will be forthcoming.
President elect Joyce Davis has sent a request to District 6540 for a District Grant to help fund the development of a community garden. Citing that Gary is becoming a "food desert", Gary Rotary is seeking to be involved with the development of a community garden on the grounds of St. Mary of the Lake Parish. With the aid of community volunteers, raised gardens are being prepared for use by citizens in our area. Users can obtain a garden site for $25 and the commitment to maintain and water the garden. Produce from the garden will be made available to the food pantry of St. Mary of the Lake parish. Pictured here are the raised gardens currently under construction.
New member Melissa Borom received her full installation at our April 19, 2018 meeting. President Don presented her with her certificate of membership, her Rotary lapel pin, her name badge, Rotary decals for her car, and the Rotary card with the Four-Way Test. Welcome Melissa ... we look forward to your classification talk.
