End of Summer – Movies in the Park

We wrapped up our final Friday night Movie in the Park with pre-movie entertainment by the South Shore Brass Band, and the feature film Puss in Boots. The goal of the sales of the popcorn and soda is only to cover the costs of providing these refreshments to the community. Thanks for another great summer!

Chesterton Porter Rotary Club recently presented Rebuilding Together Duneland a donation of $1000.  Rebuilding Together Duneland is our local chapter of Rebuilding Together which assists low income homeowners by improving their quality of life through the rehabilitation of their homes.

RTD’s mission is to rehab homes of people who are physically and/ or financially struggling and who live in the Duneland School District. Without the strong financial support given by local businesses, organizations such as Rotary and individuals, RTD would not be able to make a sustained impact on the community.

The Chesterton Porter Rotary Club is proud to support such a service organization through both financial contributions and volunteers.
