Wow !! Just look at all those greens from the Rotary Garden. Thanks to Dorreen Carey and husband Bill, and mother nature for the rain, Gary Rotary contributed a huge amount of greens to the St. Mary of the Lake Food Pantry in June. Patrons of the food pantry were all agog when they saw the fresh greens and were very thankful.
Our luncheon meetings for the month of July will be on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays, not the normal 1st and 3rd. Thus, NO MEETINGS ON JULY 4 AND JULY 18.  Instead, the meetings will be JULY 11 AND JULY 25.
Back some years ago when the Marquette Park "Kids Park" was created, Gary Rotary funded the creation of a huge sundial, located on the ground nearly in the middle of the park. The gnomon, which casts a shadow on to the dial to indicate the time, also serves as a huge pole for a windsock. Recently George McGuanJack Tonk, and friends Linda Bonner Fisher and Darin Barwig, installed a sign by the sundial and gnomon indicating the contribution by the Gary Rotary Club. The sign was created by Kids Stuff Playground Equipment, owned by Rotarians George McGuan and partner Dick Hagelberg.
