Rotary Club of Beaver

 
 
Harold greeted all at the door, Pres Jackie led us in the Pledge of Allegiance and Dale led us in prayer.
 
Connie led us in singing (so to speak):
Tell Me Why
Take Me Out to the Ball Game
Smile
 
Connie then introduced the students of the month, Grace Oram and Luke Pittner.   They spoke well of the World Affairs Council and Ethics Symposium programs we sponsor.
 
Rob collected fines and comments from the gathering.
 
Our program was Officer Stahl the Beaver Area School District Resource Office.
Office Stahl informed us that his duties at the school included:
Police Work
Counseling
Teaching
And forming relationships with the student.
 
Officer Stahl provided a sad overview of drug abuse in the area.  For example:
  • In 2012 there were heroin overdoses and in 2016 there were 90.
  • Addictions usually start with pain pills
  • Be careful with overdose people, their skin can transmit the drug.
Harry added that the Beaver County Court of Common Pleas allow parents to commit their children to rehabilitation.
 
Chris won the 50 50.
