In The News
On June 26, Rotarians and family members gathered to recognize Walter Ingalls as he retired from Rotary International after 53 years.  Walter served our club in many roles, most notably as club president and our youth exchange officer.  As the instigator of our successful youth exchange program, Walt is responsible for generations of international friendship among Greenville families and students and the wider world.  He is truly an inspiration and a peacemaker!
Shown below, l. to r., Johann, our 2017-18 exchanf=ge student from Germany, Judy Goodsell (immediate past YEO) and Ingalls.
We participated in the Greenville Memorial Day parade this week, in order to honor our departed service members and to help the community to get to know Rotary and what we do. We highlighted ShelterBox, our disaster relief partner. The Greenville Rotary Club sponsored two shelter boxes this fiscal year.
PDG Louis Turpin will visit our meeting tomorrow to share with us his recent experiences on the ground with ShelterBox USA at various emergencies.  He is also delivering the ShelterBox which we will be using in our Memorial Day Float.  Please welcome him with a great turnout!  Image result for shelterbox

At our March 14 meeting, we were joined by Renee Mandarano, Volunteer Coordinator for Eddy Alzheimer's Services, who spoke about their Care Teams. The Eddy received a grant from the New York State Department of Health to expand the Care Team program, which had been successful in the Capital District, to the outlying counties of the area. They have established teams in Catskill, Roxbury, Vorheesville, Colunbia County, and other areas. There are 24 teams in the Capital District.
Care teams are usually faith-based and most teams have four people. The Greenville team started with seven people, and is now down to one person, so they are seeking new members. All clients are local residents. The team decides as a group how far to travel, and take turns visiting the clients. There is a three-hour training required. Each team meets every six weeks, and each team member gives two hours of service per month to the clients. The care teams do not offer crisis respite or direct care. They focus on the caregiver, and give companionship and break time to the caregiver by interacting with the person with dementia. They might do activities such as adult coloring, looking at photo albums, and the like. The Greenville team currently has four clients. Everything is planned six weeks in advance. Care team members can also connect clients with additional services. Catholic Charities has funds available to pay for direct care. There is a national shortage of home health workers at the present time. Clients are identified through Catholic Charities or through the Alzheimer's Association. For more information, or to volunteer for the Greenville Care Team, Renee can be contacted at 518-238-4162 or Renee.Mandarano@sphp.com.
