As we are rapidly approaching a busy weekend of Trivia and District Conference, we gathered together today with Nick Hardrict, first time published author of The Paperclip. He shared the message of overcoming hardship. The reason I mention this is because it all shares a common theme: getting caught up in Life.

The Rotary Clubs of Granger, Roseland, and Mishawaka, are working frantically to wrap up the loose ends of the Trivia Event. The District is finalizing the Conference to be held this weekend, and Nick shared with us when and how his book came together.

Our Speaker
Nick Hardrict spoke about writing his recent book, the Paperclip. It was an overnight origination, and almost an overnight success. He shared a hardship he has had to overcome going back to 4th grade. The premise that "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me", is almost the core of the book and that Words, really can cut deep. Having to overcome things that were said to him, and about him as a youth, and how they affected him as he grew up. 

Looking forward to seeing many of you and your friends this weekend at the Trivia and District Conference events.

Have a great day !!
