The next meeting is Monday, January 19th at 6PM. Watch the TV Times for the announcement.  The 1st meeting was held on September 16, 2014 at the Gary Community Center. It was a great success with 23 people in attendance to give their input and assist in the development of survey questions for our area!! 

Thank you to everyone that filled out a survey.  The results are likely to be shared at the next meeting. 

Cam Fanfulik, the Exec Director of the NWRDC is running the project and the meetings.  He  said according to the 2010 census, there are 37 residents over the age of 65 and 40% or 85 of our residents are under the age of 35years.  That was surprising to most of us, but if you look around - there is another generation enjoying life in Gary. 


Current Project...


            You've been telling them for years!

          The Basketball & Tennis Adventure progresses.. We are almost there!

Talk with Brenda or Morgan Chisholm (the 10 year old that filled out the Kids grant request below...smile!)

Yup...10 year old ... Morgan Chisholm with a lot of help from siblings Savannah & Alex!
(daughter of Mike & Brenda)
Morgan  put in a grant request to the Dekko Foundation to repair our Tennis court in her "Get Out & Play Basketball & Tennis" initiative.  In August 2014 Morgan heard back that once her fundraising reaches $10,000, the Dekko Foundation will match it!  The community, the businesses, the alumnus and outside businesses are responding to the challenge.  As of November the $10,000 has been reached, putting the fund at over $20,000 and on the way to the $30,000 mark. Morgan is continuing the fundraising with a lot of help from everyone that cares about this project.  So, if you see Morgan, Savannah or Alex out and about...encourage our young community organizers!
