From the Community Service Committee
The Northbrook Symphony Orchestra needs two volunteers for each performance to distribute free bottles of water during intermissions. 
Performances will be held at the Sheely Center at Glenbrook North High School.  Volunteers should arrive at 3:30pm and expect to be there until at least 5:15pm.  
Concerts are scheduled on March 25th, and May 6th. Volunteers get free admission to the concert.  
The Northbrook Public Library needs volunteers to help as ushers at its film and music programs.  The events are held on Wednesdays and weekends.  Your commitment would involve 1-2 shifts per week for about 2-3 hours at a time.  Ushers, of course, get to see the show!
If you’re interested in any of these projects, please contact Dave Masters.

The Power of the Garden
With the goals of alleviating hunger and educating the community, master gardeners from University of Illinois Extension planted the garden in 2001 on a half-acre parcel donated by the city and adjacent to the public library.
Over the years, the master gardeners have enlisted the support of many businesses, organizations, and clubs, including the Rotary Club of Harvard, making the project a community-wide effort. 
As many as 250 needy families benefit from the 10,000 pounds of vegetables that are grown and donated every year to the local food pantry. The fresh produce serves as a safety net for many families. 
Jimmy Carter Comments From the Rotarian
“We feel that there’s a human right of people to live in peace,” he told The Rotarian. “We feel it’s a human right to have a modicum of health care, to have a decent place in which to live, to have a chance to have an education, to have freedom of speech and freedom of religion and the right to elect your own leaders.”
We tend to underestimate folks who have an average income of only one or two dollars a day, who don’t have good educations or decent homes. We think they’re inferior to us in some way because they haven’t provided for their families as we have. When we deal with them on a personal basis, we soon learn that they’re just as good as we are, they’re just as intelligent, just as ambitious, just as hard-working. Their family values are just as good as ours. We also learn that their perspective on life is different from ours, often because of the circumstances in which they’ve been born and raised. But we learn to respect them just as much as we respect ourselves.
