The Rotary Club of North Manchester purchased the supplies to build a drop-off box for the Thrift Shop. Greg Slater, who built the drop-off box, did excellent work and came in under budget! Our Club applied for and received a Rotary Foundation grant to purchase the supplies. Folks had been leaving donated items outside the Thrift Shop. Unfortunately, the elements, such as rain and snow, often damaged the items and they had to be thrown away. That will no longer be a problem. Thanks, Greg!
The Rotary Club of North Manchester is spearheading a communitywide effort to mentor students at Manchester Junior-Senior High School in collaboration with the school district.
Each volunteer will be matched with a student to create and support a consistent, positive, one-to-one relationship. The adult volunteer will be an advisor and friend on the journey toward becoming a successful and contributing adult.
Volunteers will help them navigate toward and plan for what is beyond high school graduation. Mentors may assist with long-range planning to toward completing their education, pursuing a career, gaining financial security and living a balanced and happy life. Some may also help with academics.
Volunteers will be trained using the interactive, online Mentoring Central program. You can work on your own at your own pace, or you can attend Rotary classes.
All mentoring will take place at the Manchester Junior-Senior High School campus, and it can be done before, during or after school, depending on the schedule and needs of the volunteer and student.
For more information or to set up a presentation for your organization, call club President Mark Eastway at 574-457-9375 or email markeastway@gmail.com.
To apply, go to www.rotarymentor.com, download a mentor application, fill it out and send it to Mark Eastway, 306 E 2nd St., North Manchester, IN 46962.
At least 10 volunteers are needed by January to begin the program in 2016.





On election day, from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. voters and residents are encouraged to eat pancakes at the Warvel Park Scout Hall in North Manchester.  Every year for over 50 years Rotarians have been serving pancakes to the public on election days.  This event raises funds for Rotary North Manchester each year that assist with local projects to include:   scholarships, polio eradication, Rotary District 6540 World Affairs Conference, literacy, youth and community service. 

Pancakes, sausage or eggs, juice and coffee are provided with the purchase of a ticket.  Tickets can be purchased from every Rotarian for $6 prior to the event or for $6.50 at the door.  For an extra $1, sausage and eggs are available and the pancakes are all you can eat.  Go vote, fill up on pancakes and meet new and old friends at this event!
