Our Centennial Year!

Welcome to another issue of our newsletter! Find out who our upcoming speakers are, what we covered in this week's meeting and any other scheduled events.
We met both in person and via Zoom.  We had guests from Habitat for Humanity.

Club President Tonya Watson called the 8th meeting of the 2021-2022 Rotary year at 12:05pm.  The Pledge of Allegiance was led by Steve Colf.  Tonya led the club in a moment of silence for friends and acquaintances  having health issues.


The Rotary Moment was led by Eric Walden on RI's November theme of Rotary Foundation Month.  He noted the RI Foundation  is the power of people pooling their funds.  There has been over US$4 billion dollars of service projects since its inception.
This week's program
Mike Williams introduced Kathy Simmons,  Executive Director Northland Hospice & Palliative Care,  a Flagstaff 401(c)(3) not for profit hospice that serves the diverse communities of Northern Arizona with compassionate end-of-life care, regardless of ability to pay.
November is National hospice month. 
Northland’s philosophy comes from 1400’s regarding holistic hospice care to be a place of shelter and rest for weary or ill travelers on a long journey. 
In current context, the philosophy is people should be comfortable at their end of life when medically the prognosis is less than 6 months.  Pain management, depression and social services are provided.  Actual amount of time on hospice can be longer than six months.
Their programs include (1) hospice care in patients’ residential homes, assisted living facilities, or nursing homes, (2) the Olivia White Hospice Home an assisted living facility, (3) Grief support services, (4) Caregiver training, and (5) the Hodgepodge thrift store.
Northland is classified as deficiency free by the STATE of AZ and Medicare.
Kathy says "shop the Hodgepodge thrift store"!
Tonya closed the program by noting this month's  book “Fish Are Not Afraid of Doctors” by J. E. Morris will be donated in Kathy's name to the FFFC Reading Room.

Wrap up Rotary announcements

There were a number of happy bucks comments.  Eric W was excited about the MSU Spartans and volunteered $70!  Tonya was not quite as excited about her Ga Bulldogs for $5.
Our weekly ‘50-50 split the pot’ card game aka “Hoppe Bucks” total pot is now at $512.  Hoppe had Kathy Simmons draw the ticket. Eric Wolverton was the winner.  He pulled the 10 of hearts from the deck.  So the pot lives on.
