Empowering Girls Event

Rotary Club of Rensselaer and Purdue Extension Jasper County are joining forces once again to bring back the Empowering Girls Event.  This event is open to girls ages 11-18.  This year's theme is “Let Your Fears Make You Fierce”. Join us from 1:00- 3:00 pm CST on February 18th to learn how a healthy mind leads to a healthy body, and participate in activities that you can do at home.  Special guests, award-winning author and national speaker, Shannon Anderson and local school teacher, Leia Pinkerman, will talk about having a better mindset and perseverance, respectively.  Participants will have the opportunity to engage in different activities such as painting, getting manicures, and making jewelry. The cost of admission is $5 per registered youth. Your paid admission ensures that you receive a t-shirt if you register by February 10th. Admission also ensures that we have enough food for everyone. The best part about the admission is that you get it back at the event!  To register, visit the link  Payments can be made at the Extension Office (2530 N. McKinley Ave. Rensselaer); ask for Carmen.  We look forward to seeing you at this awesome event!  For questions, call Carmen Fortney at the Extension Office, 219-866-5741 or Terri Phegley at 219-863-2206.
