We successfully launched our Imagination Library Literacy Project and have registered 200 children birth to 5 years old of low income families in the program!
The Imagination Library, fosters a love of reading among preschool children by providing them with a free high quality, age-appropriate book every month from birth to the age of five. The program supports early childhood literacy and a life long love of reading by creating excitement about books. The program insures that every child will have access to books, regardless of their family’s income.
Rotarian Melissa Johnson, Superintendent Dr. Teresa Eineman and Early Childhood Development Specialist, Principal Mary Ann Chapko present updates on the program during a weekly Rotary meeting.
How close are we to a polio-free world? What’s needed to finish the job? Can we make history together?

Our Centenial Project is Complete! Our trailhead clock tower project has been in the making for 5 years as a celebration of Rotary's 100th birthday. We're thrilled to see this collaborative project come to fruition. What a beauty it is!
The Erie Lackawanna (EL) Trail represents the longest contiguous trail in Northwest Indiana, running 17-miles from Crown Point north to Hammond. This trail passes through wetlands and open space on an unusually wide, paved corridor. The EL is a popular thoroughfare that lends green space to an urban landscape on this rail-trail with connections to five neighboring communities. At the southern end in Crown Point, the EL starts at Summit Street, just west of Main Street, or State Road 55. The trailhead is brand new as of the summer of 2014 and features a 20-car parking lot, bathrooms, a drinking fountain and a seating plaza, complete with a large shelter replicating an old train depot.
One great benefit of being a Rotarian is that we're able to connect at weekly meetings and learn from business experts, political and civic leaders, and entrepreneurs, who help us stay informed on topics that are relevant to our community.
A 5k and Fun Run will take place at 2pm starting and ending at the LCFG. The course will end with live Blues music at the finish line. Visit www.signmeup.com to register. Free admission to Blues, Brews & BBQ to all race participants.
