Program for April 30
In the late 60’s DuPont Company started talking about a medical system that would better serve the community. A solution was suggested that would cover many residents of the state, but DuPont didn’t want to go too big. So Joe Ruhl started his own medical centers, opening Silverside location in 1974, Limestone in the 80’s, and Glasgow in the 90’s. A fourth center will open in the STAR Campus. Partially owned by Christiana Care and partially by 18 physicians, governed by a Board of Managers, the organization oversees three entities: real estate (the buildings themselves), multi-specialty surgical centers and medical aid units. No appointment is necessary, any age, any time, 365 days/year. Mark Doughty, COO of Glasgow Center, says they are not primary care physicians and do not want to compete with them. “Save time. Save money. Get well “ is their motto.

Welcome baskets for camp counselors

Many thanks to our members for answering the call to donate items for the 40 Welcome Baskets for counselors at Camp Fairlee. Now that we know the needs, we can adjust our process for next year so no one member needs to pay too much for their selected items. 27 members participated. Thank you.

Archaeology Festival was Smokin’!

Yes, it was a hot day at Iron Hill for the annual Archaeology and Heritage Festival. And smoke from the blacksmith, beer brewer, time chef, and fire starter should have alerted everyone to a very interesting and educational event. Thank you to our sponsors: Courtyard, Mike Laur, The Broomall’s, Mel and Jackie Carlton, and our club. Thank you to Bill McNabola, Greg Stephens, Steven Waidley, Bob Stark, Steve Worden and son Charlie for your help. Robin Broomall and Josh Martin were committee members and Clinton Tymes was committee chair.

Stop Hunger NOW!

Saturday, May 9, right here in our meeting room, we will package 10,000 meals for hungry children. Please arrive at your appointed time – or 9:30 is good. With help from UD students, Interact students, and our club members, we should be done and cleaned up by noon. The meals we packaged last year went to an orphanage in Panama.

Thought for the Week:

Does anyone read this? Let me know. RB

Can’t make our meeting?

I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back.

All Rotarians are welcomed to attend another club’s meeting. Be prepared to pay for your meal and bring the makeup slip back to our secretary for attendance and invoice credit.
