Longmont Rotary Starts in-Person Meetings 
Longmont Rotary began in-person meetings on June 1st.  Box lunches need to preordered before the club meeting.  Dave Ferro spent most of his year as club president on the Zoom screen.  It is nice to see him in-person.  Leona Stoecker and others make club announcements.
HOPE 
Andy Schwartz, Street Outreach Coordinator and Heather Surovik, Volunteer Manager from HOPE (Homeless Outreach Providing Encouragement) spoke to our club about this non-profit organization.
HOPE provides a year-round overnight center for the homeless, located at 804 S. Lincoln Street.   HOPE meets people where they are. Every night of the year, street outreach teams provide basic needs support for people experiencing homelessness in Longmont. Engaging with clients from a standpoint of compassion and dignity, we build trust within the community. Because we go directly to those in need, HOPE is often the first point of contact for people living on the margin, supporting those who are falling through the cracks or are not eligible for services at other agencies. Our mission is to provide life-sustaining and supportive services for homeless and at-risk individuals to encourage stability and self-sufficiency. 

HOPE began in 2007 and continues to grow, filling gaps that make it difficult for the vulnerable population of unhoused to move towards self sufficiency. They now offer year round nighttime navigation services including sheltering, case management, hot meals, job search assistance, showers and more. HOPE recently launched the SafeLot Program, providing safe parking for those who sleep in their cars.

Understanding Alzheimer's and Dementia

 

 

 

Angel Hoffman has been working in the geriatric field since the early 1990's.  Her experience includes both long-term and acute care with a focus on providing support and education to people living with dementia and their care partners.  Her motto for her work comes from the quote of Maya Angelou, " People will forget what you said, people will forget what you do, but they will never forget how you made them feel."  Understanding Alzheimer's and Dementia- Alzheimer's is a brain disease that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior.  Dementia is a general term for a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer’s is the most common cause of dementia. Alzheimer’s is a specific disease. Dementia is not a normal part of aging. It is caused by damage to brain cells that affects their ability to communicate, which can affect thinking, behavior and feelings.   Alzheimer’s is a degenerative brain disease that is caused by complex brain changes following cell damage. It leads to dementia symptoms that gradually worsen over time. The most common early symptom of Alzheimer’s is trouble remembering new information because the disease typically impacts the part of the brain associated with learning first.

Message from our Club President 


Hello Everyone,

 

The Rotary theme for 2020-21 is Rotary Opens Opportunities.. A key goal for the upcoming Rotary year will be how do we maintain and continue all that the club has built over the last 100+ years?  What do we need to do to maintain the club as a cohesive unit?  How do we continue to support our community through local grants and projects?  How do we continue to support Rotary International, the Foundation, and Polio plus?  Also, how do we prepare for the day when programs like RYLA are able to resume?  

 

A friend of mine is a multiple time cancer survivor.  He always says that tough times mean that better ones are in the future.  With that in mind, my focus will be on how we maintain what we have today, and how we prepare to transition to the other side of our current paradigm.  Longmont Rotary has a great tradition and a great group of people.  Like everything else these days, things will be a little more difficult than usual, but we can and will succeed.

 

Thanks

Dave
