Don't Show Up
Pres. Warren Mitchell advises everyone that there will be no meeting on Monday, September 6, because of the holiday weekend.

Pres. Warren Mitchell reminds everyone of our trip to the Berlin club, Tuesday, August 24 with a August 31 raindate.

Happy Dollars
Carroll Stafford had a buck for his grandson's baptism; $2 from Howard Bacon for his granddaughter getting married and his grandson to be married Labor Day; Roger Webster for his 44 year old daughter moving out of the house; and Ed Chertok for he and Polly waking up this morning.

Roger Landry fined Dianne Roberts for being pinless and Warren Mitchell for forgetting to recognize Bob Turner.

Past Pres. Joe Adrignola presented Ginny Barunas, hygienist with our dental program since 1995, with a certificate of appreciation and a gift certificate to the Stone House restaurant for her service to the club and the community. She remarked that the program was the "most outstanding part of [her] career." She has moved on to the private sector.

Guest Speaker
Dianne Roberts introduced Dr. Paul Racicot, Chief, ER and Ambulatory Services, Dr. James Bronson, Chief, Radiology Services, and Christopher Boothby, Community Affairs, LRGHealthcare, to the club. Chris Boothby pointed out that the hospital is in the middle of a fundraising challenge to raise money to help pay for a new CT (computer tomography) scanner. They have raised $450,000 to date and need another $550,000. Meredith Village Savings Bank will provide matching funds to any service club up to $10,000. Dr. Racicot explained that the relatively fast results of the CT are especially important in emergency situations and when dealing with young children. Dr. Bronson pointed out that the CT can scan any part or all of a body and visualize from any direction. For more information go to
