National Guard Golf Outing
August 2017

Leaves are just beginning to turn, the first hints of fall are in the air when North Township Trustee Frank Mrvan invites the local members of the Indiana National Guard to enjoy a day of golfing — on him. “Providing a day of fun is the very least we can do for these brave soldiers, who serve our country with courage, dignity and pride.”

Working with local grocers, retailers, farmers and the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana, the township hosts a fall food banking event in September. The township’s clients along with seniors and others in need are invited to attend to fill their pantries.
