Our meetings in November will be somewhat different. The speaker for our November 7, meeting will be Rotary District 6540 Governor, Al Brothers. Al comes from the Anthony Wayne club in Fort Wayne. Please mark your calendar and plan to attend this important meeting.
Our meeting for November 21, WILL NOT BE AT THE MILLER BAKERY CAFE. Instead, it will be at the Excel Learning Center, 4610 W. Ridge Rd, Gary, IN.  The Excel Center is a free public high school for adults that provides flexible class schedules, supportive relationships with staff and a life coach who works with students to find solutions for life’s challenges that could hinder progress. Member Teresa Knipe is the Executive Director.
Once again the Gary Rotary donated over 400 pounds of produce to the Food Pantry of St. Mary of the Lake parish. Tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, greens, okra, cucumbers, squash, were all in great supply. The patrons of the food pantry were astonished with the produce and very, very thankful.  Pictured are Joyce Davis, Gary Rotary president, and Dorreen Carey, Urban Farm Chairperson.
