Pat Finney brings us this great story . . . 
Luis Gamarra received his Bachelor of Music and Music Business Mgmt in Boston recently.
On hand for commencement exercises and many celebrations were some of his Harbortown Rotary
Family members.  While in Duluth, Luis performed the US National Anthem at a UMD vs. U of MN
Hockey game, and sang publicly with one of the Duluth East Choirs – as well as any other time he
was invited to do so! Luis has moved to the Miami area and plans to make vocal performance his
full time occupation. Harbortown Rotary wishes him all the best!

Once again Harbortown Rotarians generously rose to the request!

Congrats and Thanks, Rotarians!
Club Members Finish Off North Country Ride Stables Project!
In mid-April, several dedicated club members were on hand to finish off the installation
of 2 new horse stables at NC Ride in Esko! It’s been a multi-year project, and through
