There was no greeter.
Greeters are assigned (generally) in alphabetical order. It is each member's responsibility to check the list that Deb Wirtz sends out periodically, and either show up to perform greeter duties, or arrange to have a replacement.
I will not name the miscreant. But he/she should be good for a large donation.
President John Fuller offered a reflection and led the Club in the Pledge of Allegiance.
I remember when I was President there was a folder under the podium with a list of prayers. Wonder if that still exists.
Meeting Agenda. OOPS!! Reveals the name of the miscreant


Wellness in a Heartbeat

Fellow Club member John Fuller has offered to share some health news/information with us from time to time. This week he shares:

Rotary Wellness in a Heartbeat: Baby Boomers Have Increased Risk of Rx Opioid Overdose Death
Individuals born between 1947 and 1964 have a significantly increased risk of prescription opioid overdose death and heroin overdose death, and those born from 1979 to 1992 also have an increased risk of heroin overdose death, according to a study published online Nov. 21 in the American Journal of Public Health.
Xiwen Huang, M.P.H., from Columbia University in New York City, and colleagues used data from the National Center for Health Statistics' multiple cause-of-death file for 1999 to 2014 to perform an age-period-cohort analysis of drug overdose mortality.
The researchers found that individuals born between 1947 and 1964 experienced excess risks of prescription opioid overdose death compared with those born in 1977 and 1978 (e.g., rate ratio, 1.27 for the 1955 to 1956 birth cohort); they also had excess risk of heroin overdose death (e.g., rate ratio, 1.32 for the 1953 to 1954 birth cohort). The risk of heroin overdose death was also increased for those born between 1979 and 1992 (e.g., rate ratio, 1.23 for the 1989 to 1990 birth cohort). Consistent effects were seen between the sexes.
"Individuals born between 1947 and 1964 and between 1979 and 1992 are particularly afflicted by the opioid epidemic," the authors write. "Intervention programs are needed to reduce the excess overdose mortality in these specific demographic groups."
