LARC will be holding its 21st annual fish fry from 4 p.m. to midnight Sept. 27* at the LARC workshop, 19043 Wentworth Ave. in Lansing.

LARC is an organization that provides support for adults with developmental disabilities. I've volunteered at the event several times and I always enjoy it. It's great to see the large turnout and that the organization has so much support. I've liked meeting people who work for the organization, parents of the clients and the clients themselves. I've even been serenaded and asked to dance by a client and they never fail to put a smile on my face.

I always look forward to the food, too. I usually get a combo meal with shrimp and perch. Food is prepared by Glenwood Oaks restaurant and it's $15 for a perch or a shrimp meal or $16 for a combo. For the kids, a hot dog meal is $5 and a chicken tenders dinner is $6. Carry-out is also available. If you're not able to make it to the fundraiser, but would like to support LARC, you can place an order for the monthly Market Day sales. For more information, call (708) 474-1540.

Car show to take place at Lansing Country Club

The cruise nights are finished on Ridge Road for the year, but there's one more chance to bring out your vintage vehicle or just walk around and admire some. A car show sponsored by Lansing Association for Community Events will take place from 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday at the Lansing Country Club, 18600 Wentworth Ave. The show is free for participants and spectators and food will be available for purchase. Raffle tickets will be sold for a 50/50 cash prize and tickets will be available for the Lansing Autumn Fest Raffle to win a Chevy Cruze.

Exhibit features local photographers

The South Shore Convention and Visitors Authority is now in its fourth year of an annual photography exhibit featuring work of local photographers and highlighting the region at the Indiana Welcome Center in Hammond. This year's exhibit theme is "Reflections," and it features 107 photographs from 58 local photographers.

The definition for submissions was: "Reflections are defined as an image seen in a mirror or shiny surface, a visual expression resulting from careful consideration and a representation of one's own self. Subjects of the photographs will be geologically located within the area of the South Shore, from Chicago to New Buffalo, Michigan."

The exhibit will be on display in the W.F. Wellman Exhibit Hall until Sept. 30. Admission to the exhibit is free. Last year I was honored to be one of the featured photographers for the "Horizons" exhibit. This year, a niece of mine has two photos on display. There are so many stunning images throughout the gallery. Stop by and check them out. The Indiana Welcome Center is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and is located at 7770 Corinne Drive in Hammond.
