Captains Richards and Mosher with President Chris
 
Our Guests Monday evening were Captain Kenneth Richards, III and Captain Richard Mosher, EMS Administrator and Supervisor, respectively.
 
The Westerly Ambulance Corps has been providing emergency medical services for the Westerly-Pawcatuck Area since 1917.  Dr. Frank I. Payne was the Corps' first Commander under the name "Westerly Red Cross Sanitary Unit".  It is a private, nonprofit volunteer organization "whose original purpose was to form a first aid and rescue unit in Westerly."  The Corps "provides emergency 911 dispatching services for itself and other fire and ambulance services in the area."  Both volunteers and paid staff are all fully certified either EMT Basic, EMT Cardiac or Paramedic.
 
The Corps "does not provide routine transportation to doctor offices, dialysis or to other scheduled appointments."  They do respond to 911 emergencies.  Part of their mission statement reads "our service-oriented professionals strive for excellence through training and education."  And that follows with constant vigilance to upgrade equipment and vehicles as necessary.  In 2002 they began operating out of new headquarters located on Chestnut Street with state-of-the-art 911 dispatching facilities.
 
A membership contribution of $60 in the WAC Inc entitles one "to emergency and non emergency ambulance transport to any hospital within 75 miles of Westerly when requested by police, physicians or appropriate 911 calls and when service is provided by the WAC Inc, service must originate in Rhode Island.  WAC Inc will bill your insurance, but any remaining balance will be waived."  For more information, please go to their website at www.westerlyambulance.org or the office between 9:00am and 5:00pm 401.596.4375  ext 202.

   Dr Rich & Pres Chris
      
               Dr Rich & MACH Darling Hill Princess Zaeta Eclipse
 
Our guest Monday evening was Dr. Rich Willner of the Stonington Veterinary Hospital and Past President of the Rotary Club of the Stoningtons.  He and his black lab, Zaeta, compete in Agility dog obstacle events sponsored by the American Kennel Club.  This is a growing dog sport across the United States.
 
A handler directs a dog through an obstacle course in a race for both time and accuracy.  Because the dog must be off leash, the handler's controls are limited to voice, movement and body signals.  The courses are complicated enough that a dog could not complete them correctly without human direction.  Both dog and handler have to move at a full out run or lose points in the speed category of the competition.  The dogs climb an A-frame, seesaw, weave through poles, jump hurdles, crawl through tunnels and even pause on a platform for at least five seconds.  The whole course typically takes 45-55 seconds, unless your dog is a border collie.  Apparently they are insanely fast.
 
Rich showed some videos of competition that demonstrated the speed of the event, the signals he uses with Zaeta, and her agility - which earned her a "Master Agility Champion" (MACH) title.  Rich said that Zaeta's weakness was that she always paused at the top of the A-frame - it seemed as though she was admiring the view from the top.  He said that he does not use verbal commands because he gets confused in the excitement of the race and he added that the handler makes 95% of the mistakes during competition.
 
Officials at the events constantly monitor the obstacles to protect the health of the dogs.  A blind tunnel was eliminated because smaller dogs were hurt when they did not have the strength to get through the tubes.  The space between the weaving poles was expanded to prevent back injuries.  This is a team sport that benefits the health of both the animal and its handler/owner.
 
Zaeta has earned, in her varied competitions, the following titles:  Master Agility Champion, Canine Good Citizen, Rally Excellent, Junior Hunter, Companion Dog Excellent, Master Bronze Agility, Masters Bronze Jumpers with Weaves, Excellent FAST, Time to Beat, Master Agility Excellent Preferred, Master Excellent Jumpers with Weaves Preferred and Trick Dog Intermediate and she has earned titles in Obedience, Rally and Hunt.
 
Monday evening, April 2nd, our guest speaker Cheryl Martone who is the Director of the Volunteer Program - Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Rhode Island.  CASA was developed "by the Family Court in 1978 in answer to the need for advocacy for those children who had been abused and/or neglected, and through no fault of their own, found themselves involed with the Department of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF) and the Family Court."
 
Although she would be happy to accept financial donations, Cheryl was searching for more volunteers for the over 3,000 children in need.  A child will often spend 21 months in the system and will be relocated three times into foster care.  Relocation could mean a different community, separation from siblings, with a new school and friends each time.
 
It takes eighteen months for a case to get through the court system.  During that time, a CASA volunteer may be the only consistent voice for the child to make sure that the child is safe and receiving all the help available.  That means the volunteer follows the child through all the moves - a commitment of eight to ten hours a month for eighteen months.
 
At this time there are only 200 volunteers available for 3,000 children - only 15% have an Advocate.  The goal of CASA is to get kids into a permanent and safe home so they can survive.  As they note in their brochure, "too many children in the child welfare system lose their families, their rights and their hope."  "In advocating for an abused or neglected child, you give that child a voice - and a chance for a better life.  For more information contact Cheryl at 401.458.3330 or email casa@courts.ri.gov
This year marks 30 years of Women in Rotary and the District Conference in May will commemorate this event.
 
   
             Joan                                        Mary       
Westerly Rotary's first Women in Rotary joined in June of 1989 - Joan McCormick and Mary Krupinski - and they were followed by Rona Mann in October of 1989.  Joan and Mary are no longer members but we are delighted to still have Rona with us.  Mary served as Treasurer for many years.  
 
Another member of our Club (Kathryn Taylor, 2000), became the second woman to join the Rotary Club of Littleton, New Hampshire in January of 1989.
 
 
Dr. Robert Harrison, a Westerly Hospital physician for 32 years and our Guest Speaker Monday evening, introduced the membership to a National Council for Behavioral Health program established in 2016 called Youth Mental Health First Aid.  Similar to CPR and other physical first aid applications, this program was developed to teach "how to identify signs of mental illness and how to talk about it".  The training, he said, is for anyone who is interested; however, he has trained about 170 members of the Westerly schools as well as police officers from Westerly and neighboring areas.
 
Mental health first aid focuses on ALGEE - a five-step action plan:
         Assess for risk of suicide or harm
         Listen nonjudgmentally
         Give reassurance and information
         Encourage appropriate professional help
         Encourage self-help and other support strategies
 
Dr. Harrison said "it is better to ask, 'Are you considering suicide?' rather than 'Are you thinking about hurting yourself?'"  The statistics are staggering - "children in the United States between the ages of 10 and 14 are as likely to commit suicide as they are to die in a car crash."  "Washington County has the highest suicide rate of the state's five counties."
 
The training sessions, generally offered free due to grant funds, emphasize ways to de-stigmatize mental illness.  The program is designed to "help people to notice and to give them the confidence to say something".  The course, an 8-hour session usually divided into 2 4-hour sessions, "teaches participants the risk factors and warning signs of a variety of mental health challenges common amoung adolescents, including anxiety, depression, psychosis, eating disorders, AD/HD, disruptive behavior disorders, and substance use disorder." For more information or to find a course, go to https://www.mentalhealthfirstaidorg.
 
As always, Westerly Rotary memorializes a Speaker visit with a presentation of a book from the Westerly Children's Library and a picture with the Club President.  Unfortunately, despite taking two pictures, they were both pretty awful; so my apologies to Dr. Harrison.  Maybe he will come back again some time.

A Night of MemoriesIt was a night to remember. We took over the Cooked Goose Restaurant and enjoyed a wine tasting, a raffle and an auction that featured many fine gifts.  Ted Avedesian and Steve Cofone co-hosted the event and Rose Russo worked behind the scenes to take care of the details so everything would run smoothly. Thank you to Bob Elmer, who served as the Auctioneer, and all who attended. It was a great event.

There are more photos from the event in our Scholarship Auction Photo album to the left. 

 
     We welcomed Debra and Lindsey Tanner to our meeting this past week and they shared some interesting news and information about Southern Rhode Island Volunteers. Debra is the Executive Director and she shared that she couldn’t believe that she’s been blessed to be doing this job for the last sixteen years.
     The organization had its roots thirty-six years ago in a thesis developed by a URI graduate student. He saw a group of older Americans leaving the work force with plenty of energy and enthusiasm and wondered if there might be a place for them in a network of volunteers.
     Since then the Southern Rhode Island Volunteers have placed hundreds upon hundreds of volunteers as docents at museums, greeters in a variety of settings, delivering meals on wheels, 
and stocking shelves at food pantries. It has been estimated that they provide as much as 1.2 million dollars in human services a year now. Last year they provided over 400 medical transport rides, 9,500 meals delivered, racked up 1,000 hours of visitation, 2,500 hours in grocery shopping trips and served over 300 different clients.                                                        
     The work of their agency is more important now than ever before because of the dwindling amount of resources coming from the state and federal government. They used to get some funding to provide their basic network of services but even that has been cut off. Today they rely on donations and grants as well as the volunteer efforts of a number of faithful friends.  
     Lindsay Tanner is the RSVP & Program Director. She joined the team in 2009 and has enjoyed her job as she reaches out to the community and builds relationship with both the people needing services and those who will be volunteering.
     Today the volunteers include people of all ags serving in many different ways in the community. The agency sends volunteers to a full third of the state of Rhode Island. A few of the opportunities that are being offered include volunteering at;
Washington County Fair – Each August youth volunteers meet school and civic service hour requirements at this fun county event while assisting local granges in educating the public about agriculture, animal farming and more.
Animal Rescue League of Southern RI – Families and individual volunteers enjoy walking dogs, visiting with the cats and kittens who are available for adoption, and other animal care activities under the direction of the rescue staff.
South County Museum – Volunteers here are passionate about helping people discover history serving as greeters, docents, receptionists and many other hands-on activities.
Jonnycake Center of Peacedale – Volunteers are delivering food commodities once a week to home-bound - clients of the food pantry every month as well as receiving, sorting and displaying donations of food, furniture, kitchen items, clothing and more.
     President Steve presented the ladies with a book to sign. The book will be donated to the Westerly Children’s Library in their honor as guest speakers at our club meeting.

On Monday May 1st we traveled to Wakefield to join our sister club for a very special meeting. It was a nice evening filled with laughter, good fellowship and some information on how Rotary is seeking to promote peace,  build goodwill and better friend-ships around the world.
 
Promoting world peace is one of the ongoing important goals of Rotary International. The Group Study Exchange team from Australia brought together five individuals who are professionals in the field of Peace and conflict resolution with the idea of meeting and interacting with their counterparts here in the USA. On Monday night we got to meet the team and hear a bit from each of them and their group leader, Tracey Wyatt a Rotarian from District 9600.
 

The team included; Donyque Curtis, an Australian Federal Police officer from Brisbane; Roberta Ramoifuila, a counselor working with victims of domestic violence as part of a NGO in Honiara in the Solomon Islands; Richard Denning, a lawyer who does mediation and leads workshops focusing on restorative justice in New South Wales; Emily Seaman, a refugee advocate working within the Department of Immigration in New Guinea; and Group leader Tracey Wyatt, who works in risk management and occupational health for Stadiums Queensland for its large international sized sporting and entertainment facilities in the region.

It was a wonderful presentation that featured a bit of history and information about the team and was punctuated by the presentation of gifts and banners. 

 

 

Every year District 7950 hosts a Conference to celebrate the work of Rotary locally and internationally. This year we combined with three other rotary Districts to have a huge celebration. Bob Elmer, Rose Russo and Kathryn Taylor attended the opening sessions on Friday. Cal Lord, Lana Weidner, Chris DiPaola, Evie and Steve Cofone (Pictured above) all enjoyed the Opening Banquet on Friday night. The guest speaker for the evening was John Germ, the President of Rotary International.

It was great to hear about the work that is being done around the world in the name of Rotary. The new theme for 2017-18 is Rotary: Making a Difference. It is exciting to know that we are a part of it.

Daniel Lucius “Doc” Adams was born in New Hampshire in 1814. While serving as a practicing physician in New York City, he signed on with the Knickerbocker Baseball club and created and developed what we know now as the shortstop position. He served as the President of the club for six terms.

Doc also made all the baseballs for the club and supervised the making of all the bats. Between 1853 and 1858 he was chair of the rules committee for the conventions of the New York City and Brooklyn Baseball Clubs. He advocated for the base paths to be 90 feet, the pitcher’s mound to be 45 feet from home plate and for a game to be 9 innings long with nine players on each team. He was way ahead of his time.

On Monday April 24th Marjorie Adams, the great-granddaughter of Doc Adam, shared his story with our club. It was fascinating to hear her tell of this man and the interesting life he lived. His contributions to the game many of us know and love today are numerous. Yet he is all but forgotten. Marjorie suggested going to his website and signing the online petition at www.DocAdamsBaseBall.org. You can also learn more by going to the Facebook page. You can find it at www.facebook.com/DanielLuciusDocAdams.
