12 Noon Tee Time

Shotgun Start

Grantham, NH

The Lebanon Riverside Rotary Club is preparing for the 24th Annual Bedell Charity Golf Classic Fundraiser.  This is our primary fundraiser and the proceeds of the tournament allow us to continue essential support for local nonprofits, some regional efforts and even some international humanitarian projects. 

Our local projects include the Riverside Community Park, Little Libraries of Lebanon, food drives for Listen Center and Spark.  In the schools we provide every 1st grader with a book of their own called a 1st grade reader.  In the High School we provide Scholarships and Youth Leadership Training through our Rotary Youth Leadership Award progam...also know as RYLA. 

You will see different ways you can get involved in this Golf Classic with several different sponsorships or if you want to come out and play 18 we would love to see you!  If you have questions please don't hesitate to ask.  We hope you can assist us in our efforts. 



Program, May 9, 2017 - Dartmouth-Hitchcock Advanced Response Team
Our Speaker this morning was Chris McIntyre, a pilot with the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Advanced Response Team is based in Lebanon, NH at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.
Chris grew up in Nashua.  He is a graduate of the University of New Hampshire where he was a member of ROTC.  His Airforce career started in 1990.  After serving as a missile operator, he was accepted into pilot school.  Chris learned to fly a variety of fixed wing planes and helicopters.  It seems he liked flying helicopters the best.  Chris had a tour of duty in Iraq.  He has served as a flight instructor.  After 23 years he retired from the Airforce, and took a job with the Maine Fire Service flying helicopters.  Just over 3 years ago he applied for and accepted a job with DHART.  He built a home and lives in Grantham next door to Bob Gasser.
The DHART team (58 people), consisting of medical personnel (flight nurses and EMTS), dispatchers, mechanics and administrators from Dartmouth-Hitchcock, and aviation personnel employed by Metro Aviation, Inc.  DHART provides both ground and air medical transportation services to the medical communities of Northern New England. The DHART team also responds to public safety agency requests for evacuation of trauma patients from scenes of accident and injury, and will transport to the closest Trauma Center in the region's five states.
Service is provided 24 hours a day and seven days a week, the DHART team transports adult, pediatric and neonatal patients to ANY appropriate medical facility in New England.
The Evergreen Singers are a small group of people from the Connecticut River Valley who offer songs for comfort and healing to people who are ill or nearing end-of-life.  They will sing at the bedside in living areas of private home, in hospitals, assisted living facilities and nursing homes.  They have participated in Hospice Training and respect and follow standards of care established by Hospice, and assure confidentiality. Their services are offered without charge.  If you know of a person who might benefit from song, contact Martha McDaniel (802) 295-6225; or Sally Shipton (603) 795-20148.
We were delighted to host them at our 25 April meeting.  We all enjoyed the songs they sang, and appreciate the service they provide to individuals at end-of-life.
Two very dynamic first year Geisel School of Medicine students, Nasim Azizgolshani and Louisa Chen described a  Harm Reduction Program they are working to establish at the Claremont Soup Kitchen. Both have been involved in similar programs while they were in college in California (Louisa) and NYC (Nasim). They are in the process of finding ways to fund clean syringe kits to keep addicts from using contaminated syringes; provide naloxone to be used by friends and families of opiate overdose patients; and distributes sharps containers made from heavy duty plastic laundry soap containers; identify facilities that are willing to dispose of these contatins; and educate addicts and their friends and families about overdose protocols and the prevention of blood-borne diseases.
They hope to open up the conversations about addiction and provide a safe space for individuals with substance abuse disorders to seek resources leading toward recovery. Their goal is to work with community partners to make sure the program is sustainable once the students leave our area. To do this, they are actively in the process of doing a needs assessment to make sure they are doing what the community needs and wants. Their goal are to prevent deaths from overdoses; limit the number of blood borne disease from be transmitted from addict to addict; help prevent secondary illnesses in this population of patients by teaching good practices; and to assure the program is sustainable.  Of course, it is also their hope that by providing support to those person dealing with substance abuse that some will be willing to consider programs that will help them with recovery.
Having fun checking holiday baskets to make sure they are complete.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
