  We welcomed the very talented Pat McFarland to the club this morning. Pat is self employed with the Ultimate Achievement Group LLC in Newtown,PA. Pat is a singer, life coach, former ABA basketball player with the Denver Nuggets/Rockets and played many different sports for St Joseph's University. Pat grew up believing you could be anything you want to be as long as you believe. He was drafted by NY Knicks but was angry that they changed his contract at the last minute and made the decision to go to Denver instead. He believes we make decisions based on one of two things..our social self (ego) based on what's in it for me or our soul self.. doing something that might no feel right at the moment but brings greater happiness and prosperity. Take the emotion out of the decision making process. Pat is a life coach and believes Responsibility is the ability to respond and it defines who you are.You can hear him sing and speak at the Newtown Theater Mar 14 2019 7-9PM https://www.thenewtowntheatre.com/events/2019/3/14/pat-the-hat-mcfarland-what-are-you-going-to-do-now

   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.

  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!
