Pres. Allen introduced the program for the day, Cathy Costello, a mental health advocate.
 

On August 23rd, 2015, Cathy Costello’s life changed forever. Her oldest son, who for many years battled with mental illness, had quit taking his medication. Meeting on a quiet summer evening with his parents at a local restaurant in Oklahoma City, Christian Costello inexplicably stabbed his father, Labor Commissioner, Mark Costello, to death. Mark died in Cathy’s arms.

 

Through her deeply rooted faith in God and incredible resilience, Cathy has transformed an immense tragedy into a source of hope for so many. As a national speaker who travels across the country sharing her story and advocating for mental health awareness, Cathy hopes to first honor the legacy of the late, great Mark Costello, and second, to break through the stigma of mental illness and allow her personal experience to be a source of change, strength, and hope for others.

Greg Elliott reports that we are looking for a couple of campers for RYLA this summer and wanted to send a request to the club asking for nominations for students who will be a Senior in High School next fall, and who are looking for leadership opportunities.  The date for the camp is June 17th - 21st.  We need to have these campers submitted by the end of next week so the quicker we can hear back the better.  You can contact Greg directly at gelliott@standleys.com, or by cell # 203-5515. 
What is RYLA?
All RYLA programs encourage youth leaders and provide them with improved techniques of leadership. Their enthusiasm and technique are brought back to the community from which the campers were sponsored, thus impacting the young people being influenced by these youthful leaders.  RYLA introduces a large number of young people and their families to the Rotary ideals of service each year. It helps bridge the communication gap between the generations and helps improve relationships among youth groups, families and the community.

The Chickasha Rotary Club produced a movie circa 1991.  The 26-minute mini-movie was aimed at "attendance retention" and stressed the importance of rotary attendance for members.  The movie is a play on "It's a wonderful life" and "Giligian's Island", with a unique twist.  The Skipper (Richard Varley) who usually skips the Thursday Rotary meetings, comes up with a hypothesis relating his rotary skipping to the type of peanut butter he eats.  Some club members help him to debunk the idea (or do they?).  The Skipper then falls asleep where two rotary angels visit him and take him on a tour of what the world would be like if the Skipper had never been born.   


The cast included:
Richard Varley (The Skipper)
John Mosley
Keith Andrews
Charles Allen Jr.
Jim Ford
Bill Smith
Kristy Varley
Roy Trout
Everett Hulsey
Ira Elledge
Tracie Harris
Shirley Hays
Carol Varley

As some of you may have already heard a dear member of this community, Bill Wallace, has passed away.  He was also a member of the First Christian Church.  The services will be held at First Christian at 10:30 am.  That means we need to change our location for Thursday, 2-1-2012  St. Luke's Episcopal Church whose vicar is Susan Lindley, one of our members, has graciously opened its doors to us. St. Luke's address is  124 S 6th Street and is directly across the street to the north of FCC. Thanks you in advance for your understanding of this location change.  Next Thursday's meeting (2-9-12) all will be back to normal.
