Portage Kiwanis:

Today we are teaming up with Porter County E911 and Portage Fire to help to put safety wristbands on children at the Porter County Fair. We place a wrist band on a child with the parents mobile number inside. If the child becomes separated from their family they are immediately returned via a Porter County Sheriffs Officer.

The wrist bands are available each day 10-8pm inside Gate 1 in the white tent.

Speaker/Program:
Gabriel's Horn Executive Director Monica Hammond gave us an overview of her background and Gabriel's Horn....which is a Woman and children's shelter for those who for a variety of reasons are homeless and need a place to live until they get back on their feet. Typically they would be able to stay from 6 - 7 months. During which time they can try to save money if they are employed as there are no rent or utility expenses at the shelter. There will be tours of the facility starting in July.

Monica is originally from the Chicago area and spent 13 years in the Atlanta area with the United Way. Please follow the link below to learn more about how Gabriel's Horn helps women and children in Porter County.

Thank you Mayor Sue Lynch for supporting the Easter Egg hunt and the Myron Fessler scholarship fund.
How do you become a volunteer. When I was with my husband, no longer together we were Kiwanis members and used to help where I could. Is there a chance of joining again? I was a member of the Huntington Club.
We've just started a page called “Kiwanis Video Meeting Info”. This page could serve as a resource database of all Kiwanis Club’s video meetings so that others may join in and learn about your club or to share ideas. Come on and like the page and share your info. Check it out at: https://www.facebook.com/Kiwanis-Video-Meeting-Info-104258634621454
Great job by Portage Kiwanis and community support for Toys for Tots on Saturday.
Thank you Regional Federal Credit Union , Edmonds & Evans Funeral Home and The eState - Fine Jewelry, Coins & Collectibles for your ad renewals. Still a few openings for a great cause!
Ever wonder how each 3rd grade student in Portage Township receives a personalized dictionary? The answer is PORTAGE KIWANIS CLUB. Each year the club raises money from placemat ads for the Chili lunch with Santa to purchase dictionaries. Students keep and use their dictionaries throughout their academic years. To be apart of this rewarding project send you business card and $75 to Kiwanis Club of Portage • PO Box 1691• Portage IN • 46368 by November 23rd 2018.
