Thanks to the hard work of several we were once again able to turn a profit and will be able to help others in need this coming holiday season. If you'd like to see the pictures of the event, look at the album section on the left side of the home page.
This past Saturday was Pirates Day and once again our club sold snow cones at the annual town event. This year our club has decided to donate all of the proceeds to the hurricane victims in Florida and Texas. We're happy to tell you all that the event was a great success. We will be able to donate an approximate total of $1,200 toward the cause.
Last week we had Dr. Pollack come in and demonstrate to our club the power of laughter, meditation and good vibes.
After a couple of jokes and a small meditation session he discussed how positive thinking can greatly impact your health and your overall well being. He used examples in the past such as Patch Adams about the research of laughter and how it can help with healing. He was definitely one of our most lively speakers! You can learn more about Dr. Pollack and his chiropractic firm at
Last week we had Jeff and his dog Rocky come in and speak about Rocky as a therapy dog. Rocky aka Rockstar has been nominated for The American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards and is almost 9 years old. He is a male Doberman Pinscher.
This week we had Brian Holmes come in and discuss his recent trip to Kolkata, a city in West Bengal, India. He gave a fantastic recollection of his stay in Kolkata where is was able to roam the city with a tour guide and volunteer at the Missionaries of Charity. The Missionaries of Charity is an organization built by Mother Theresa. He spent time helping hospice patients and a orphanage for severely handicapped. His trip really resonates on what the four way test is here in Rotary!
