Today we welcomed Rotarian Leo Quinn from the Warminster Rotary Club to speak to us about Rotary Foundation. Foundation funds many sustainable service projects around the world as well as locally. More then 90 % of your donation goes directly to supporting service projects including Polio Plus. Think about it..A child can be protected from Polio for as little as 60cents. Foundation is a well respected charity and carries 4 stars, the highest rating from charity navigator. An added benefit is that in three years time..money will be returned to the district for use as grant money for district clubs so be sure to donate to foundation!!
Thank you Leo!

   This morning we welcomed Rachel Baum from My Sisters Choice, Fort Washington PA. This organization provides in home care for the elderly . Both Companion care and personal care can be provided.  One of the  growing problems in the senior communities is Cybersecurity ...over 25 million people are victims, 15% seniors over 60. Some reasons seniors are more susceptible : 1. Seniors most likely have a nest egg,own their own home, and have excellent credit  2. Seniors were raised to be polite and trusting which often makes it difficult for them to just hang up  the phone. 3. They are less likely to report fraud. 4. If they do report it, they are likely to be poor witnesses due to poor memory.  Care givers are always on the lookout for signs that their clients have a a victim of these scams and fraud including protecting them from phishing.   My sisters Choice offers many and varied services which can be found on their website https://my-sisterschoice.com/services/ . Services provided are customized based on client needs.

  We were pleased to have with us this morning Diane Hegele, Hatboro Borurgh Manager. Diane gave us an excellent update on the borough. In 2018, there began many changes such as younger officials joining the Council board; new records management system including digitizing minutes reaching back to the early years; accepting credit cards for  payment on certain things; establishing a Human Relations Committee; electing a new tax collector; revitalizing Mainstreet and many more improvements to this community. A lot of interest was shown by the club who had many questions. Thank you for sharing with us as we all continue to support Hatboro.

  Today we welcomed Dr. Dean De Pice to Hatboro Rotary. Dr. Dean is a practicing Chiropractor and member of the Willow Grove Rotary. He has been actively involved in think tanks,travels around the world speaking on Health Reform. A member of Octagon, a chiropractic think tank, established to create dialog on health care and the human endeavor. One of its goals is to promote healthier behaviors, goals, and responsibilities in the individual before health problems arise. An individual that is educated, healthy and competent is more difficult to lead then one who is frighten and demoralized and thus easily controlled. Stressing a healthier lifestyle, diet ,exercise,no smoking, and stress management is a better prescription for health then medications. The number one cause of death is not heart disease or cancer as you would expect but personal decisions. Personal choices such as various addictions, overeating, suicide are all examples of personal choices which often lead to death. We all play a part in preventing and promoting healthier life stlyes with better food choices, 30 minutes of exercise a day (3.5 hrs per week), stress management and other alternative choices. Think about it!
