The Board of Directors, at their meeting on July 31, 2018, passed a motion to inform all members of Gary Rotary that they are expected to put in 5 hours of work per month in the Gary Rotary Garden, or purchase a "Get-Out-of-the-Garden Free" card with a $25 donation to Gary Rotary. The garden is behind St. Mary of the Lake church, and already is producing vegetables. So get your hoe, gloves, rake, and visit the garden. Or, get out the check book.
The Trivia Question theme for August will be:  THE ROTARIAN.  That is the magazine from Rotary International you receive every month. Look up an article in it, and make a question out of it.
       Our Rotary garden is up and blooming. Gary Rotary received a District Grant to plant and maintain a garden adjacent to the Community Garden of St. Mary of the Lake parish. One of the goals of the garden is to provide fresh vegetables to the St. Mary of the Lake food pantry.  Thanks to new member Dorreen Carey and her husband Bill, the garden has been prepared and the plants are thriving. Of course, so are the weeds. Now we need the time and energy of Gary Rotarians to help keep the weeds down. Pictured here are Joyce Davis and Dorreen doing their part.  
The number of our delinquent members paying dues exceeds the number who have paid dues. Time to pony up boys and girls. Two invoices have been emailed to our members. But if you like a printed one, it will be available at our next meeting.
