Norfolk Rotary Club         November 19, 2013

At today’s meeting, Dr. Howard Liu, a child psychiatrist with the UNMC Medical Center in Omaha, gave a presentation on the needs of psychiatric care in rural Nebraska.  He discussed the strategies that are being used to deal with these needs.  Dr. Liu was accompanied by two other UNMC staff members.

Grant funding for Music in the Park and the multi-cultural program will be given to the Norfolk Rotary Club.  The multi-cultural grant involves a partnership between the Norfolk, Columbus, Schuyler, and Lincoln Rotary Clubs to assist Hispanics in the area.  Members are being sought out to assist with this project.  The presentation of the funds for these two grants will be made at a later date.

Several members who have invited guests to Rotary meetings since the membership drive started were acknowledged.  Stan Christensen invited the most members followed by Ron McKeever.

The next meeting will be held on November 26 at noon.  The speaker will be Angela Korth of Madison House, an assisted living facility in Norfolk.
