Good morning Redding East Rotary,
Day 4 catching up with the weekly meeting +1, giving you plenty of opportunities to earn points to avoid the dreaded FULL DAY wearing a jockey costume:
The +1 for September 30th was an app – Felt and/or Handwrytten (https://www.feltapp.com/ and https://www.handwrytten.com/)
  • Just in time for holiday thank you notes (and profound letters of appreciation to your Rotary President) the +1 this week was the Felt app or Handwrytten app, which both allow you to create cards, thank you notes and letters from your smart phone, tablet or computer and customize them with photos directly from your phone.  I’ve found these apps to be very user friendly and they can be automated as well, so there is no excuse not to write a thank you note any longer (which I’m terrible at doing).  Check it out and let me know if you have any trouble or if you have a better app you like to use.
Points: Send a card or note to a fellow club member and I’ll give you 400 points
All the best,
Chris Haedrich
Your Rotary Prez

Good morning Redding East Rotary,
Day 3 of catching up with the weekly +1 to give you more opportunities to earn points:
The +1 for September 9th was another book – “How to Change Your Mind” by Michael Pollan (https://www.amazon.com/Change-Your-Mind-Consciousness-Transcendence/dp/1594204225)
  • I was surprised how many of you read the last book, “The Boys in the Boat”, well done!  While that book was historical non-fiction, this next book is predominantly about current research into the new science of psychedelics and their use to treat addiction, depression, PTSD, and fear of death, to name a few.  Everyone at some point, whether personally or with family and friends, has experience with depression, addiction, fear of death, etc.  This book helps explain why the State of Oregon legalized the use of psychedelics, why the City of Oakland legalized the use of psilocybin, and why most future therapist and counselors will likely include these treatments.  I know most of you remember Timothy Leary being describe by President Nixon as “The most dangerous man in America”, so I expect you may think I’m crazy for this one (my Dad did); but if the summary of this book gives you pause, all the more reason you should read it.
Points: Let me know if you read this book and I’ll give you 500 points
All the best,
Chris Haedrich
Your Crazy President
