Jeff Manes Book Signing

6:00 pm - 9:00 pm, March 18, 2016
Jeff Manes Book Signing

You are invited to Jeff Manes’ book signing at the Marshall J. Gardner Center for the Arts on Friday, March 18 from 6-9pm. Jeff was a steelworker and now writes a column for the Post Tribune. “All Worth Their Salt” is a brilliant collection of interviews of a cross section of a region of Indiana that few people know of – Northwest Indiana. This collection tells the story of immigrants, steel mill workers, veterans of World War II, and people who think they are just plain folk without a story to tell, but when the author sits down with them, he brings out what makes them unique. Join us as he tells some of the stories he has learned from local people throughout the years, and buy a signed book or 3. Free event – open to the public – everyone is welcome!

Green Drinks Gary - Creating a Calumet National Heritage Area

6:00 pm - 8:00 pm, May 03, 2016

Come on out to Mama Pearl’s BBQ, located at 411 East 5th Avenue in Gary, Indiana, on May 3rd from 6 - 8pm for Green Drinks Gary and learn about the ongoing effort, led by the Calumet Heritage Partnership and The Field Museum, to create a Calumet National Heritage Area. National Heritage Areas shine a light on local heritage that is nationally important. In doing so they can attract tourism, new economic opportunities, and increase civic engagement. They are grass-roots initiatives that receive federal support, but need the support of locals to become a reality. Come learn more, and how you can get involved.   *From 6-6:30pm we encourage attendees to network with one another, order food, and get settled in. The guest speaker's presentation will begin at 6:30pm. Mama Pearl's does not serve alcohol however attendees are welcome to bring their own (byob).*   Presenter(s): Mario Longoni is an Urban Anthropology Manager in the Keller Science Action Center at The Field Museum. His work in the Calumet Region dates back to 2002 when he contributed to the Journey Through Calumet project (http://archive.fieldmuseum.org/calumet/), highlighting the Region's cultural assets. Subsequently he produced the Grab This Fish Tale comic book (https://www.fieldmuseum.org/sites/default/files/FishTale_web_0.pdf) to advise Calumet anglers on smart fish consumption. Like these previous projects, the Calumet National Heritage Area initiative aims to improve local quality of life by building on the existing strengths and resources of local communities and the wider region.   For additional information on this and future events please visit Green Drinks Gary’s facebook page at www.facebook.com/GreenDrinksGary, join our facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1682928161975070/, check out our website at http://www.greendrinks.org/IN/Gary, or send an email to garygreendrinks@gmail.com.   See you May 3rd!

Gary Artesian Well Project

6:00 pm - 8:00 pm, June 07, 2016

Currently there is an artesian well on 35th and Chase Street, which, according to anecdotes, predates the city of Gary. Residents throughout northwest Indiana have used this source of water for over a century and are still using it today. Despite reports of a major clean up, which took place as recently as mid-January, its current state is absolutely devastating. The main objective of this presentation is to provide information to the community about the well, dumping, waste disposal, agency protocols to deal with solid waste disposal/removal and to allow positive and productive public engagement on how to best resolve some of these specific issues. This presentation is to accomplish the following goals: 1) Education - many life-long citizens of Gary have no idea this water source exists, its age, depth, source, and quality/safety from lack of available information. 2) Protection - this area, like many others in Gary, are consistently used as a dumping site; especially because of its uniqueness as a well, some sort of protection should exist in order to prevent further dumping (and possible contamination). 3) Future - As it stands right now, this water source is being destroyed due to dumping and other potential environmental factors. The public will be advised of its dangers as well as options of how to proceed with a well that could potentially be discharging harmful water up from the ground. Attendees’ input is encouraged and welcome. 4) Link to other “high traffic dump sites” in/around the city as a means of addressing the issue of dumping and its impact on the community Presenter: Arianne Campbell was born and raised in Gary, Indiana. She spent much of her childhood growing up in Miller before moving to the Glen Park neighborhood of Gary and has always felt a particular connection to the area. Arianne received her bachelors in Psychology from Purdue University in West Lafayette and her masters in education from Purdue University Calumet. Additionally, she is licensed in school counseling. Currently, Arianne is serving as an AmeriCorps VISTA at the Paul H. Douglas Center For Environmental Education in partnership with the Department of Interior, Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and the Bridges Network, where she is focusing on community engagement and environmental stewardship, particularly in Gary, Indiana. ***From 6-6:30pm we encourage attendees to network with one another, order food, and get settled in. The guest speaker's presentation will begin at 6:30pm. *Mama Pearl's does not serve alcohol however attendees are welcome to bring their own (byob).*** For additional information on future events please visit Green Drinks Gary’s facebook page at www.facebook.com/GreenDrinksGary, join our facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/1682928161975070/, or check out our website at http://www.greendrinks.org/IN/Gary.
