AT DIXON UNIVERSITY CENTER RSVP Required
Speaker: Barry Ramper, President/CEO of Homeland Center, Homeland Hospice, Homeland HomeCare, and Homeland HomeHealth
Topic: "SOMETHING WE ALL MUST FACE: Where and How We Will Live When Aged".
Our speaker is our own past president Barry Ramper, a national expert on hospice care and the emerging topic of home health care and maintenance. Although this is a topic most of us tend to "put off", or think "I am too young now to think about this", we should become truly informed. Barry is a noted consultant and go to person on these important, must face, topics. His informed presentation will be helpful to you in thinking about yourself, and or your parents and the current and future directions in where and how we will all live, when aged. Timely! Important!

Monday’s meeting started with the traditional opening: pledging the flag, singing and greeting one another and introduction of guests and visiting Rotarians.
Al Schmidt was recognized for 50 years of Rotary service
Betty Hungerford was presented with the Community Service Award for her outstanding contributions to the Community. Betty was the featured speaker and humbly expressed her appreciation for others efforts. She also introduced close friends and family that have been inspirations in her life and have acted as her support system. She went on to recognize people who have done great things in the community. Additionally, Betty shared the meaning of Service from her thesaurus and her motivation for “Service Beyond Self.” Betty also pointed out that we should give thought to the word “Community” from the standpoint of geography, ethnicity, socially, etc., and see it as many things beyond just non-profits’ needs. There are many opportunities in our community for us to reach out and make a positive impact and Betty challenged the group to give in simple ways.
