This is a casual bike ride up the Scenic Drive / Hwy 61 – all speeds and contraptions are welcome. For those not interested in biking you can arrive when you please.
Harbortown will provide burgers and brats to grill - please bring a side dish or desert to share, and your beverage of choice.

Dictionary Distribution a Big Success!
Every 3rd grade student in the Duluth Public Schools was provided a dictionary – thanks to Harbortown Rotary!
Several members joined forces to visit with the kids and distribute them in 9 area public schools during the month of December.
Following is a note of appreciation from one of the teachers.
(A summary of our great program on 1/2/13)
Dr. Malcolm Henderson a trauma surgeon from Chicago was our program on January 2nd. After mission trips to Haiti he was so moved by how much help they needed, he has quit his job and is moving himself and his family to a village in Haiti, seven hours southwest of Port au Prince. He is building a school for 800 kids, and working on opening an abandoned clinic, eventually building a nondenominational church. The ground breaking is January 10th for the construction of the school.
He feels that being in Haiti, he has a better chance to accomplish things and set up proper infrastructure. He and his family are making a life changing move, his kids are 16,14,11, and 10. He will be blogging his experience and progress. His website is www.charis4haiti.com if you would like to follow his adventure.
