Buy Us A Coffee

The Gary Chamber of Commerce is hosting its eighth annual World Civility Day on April 11.

The chamber calls World Civility Day a celebration of the Golden Rule — the concept of treating others as one would want to be treated. The day will feature civility-themed events, workshops, a vendor fair and an evening awards dinner.

Deryl McKissack, chairwoman and CEO of McKissack & McKissack, will be the speaker for the awards dinner. McKissack & McKissack is a national architecture, engineering and construction management firm. McKissack founded the company in 1990 on a budget of $1,000 and a business plan she wrote herself.

The chamber will celebrate the day with workshops from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and lunch at the Dean and Barbara White Community Center in Merrillville. Workshop themes will include civility in the classroom and in the workplace.

The awards dinner starts at 6 p.m. at the Avalon Manor in Merrillville. The dinner will feature speakers and awards presented by Community Civility Counts. More information about the day’s events is available here.
