Nashville - Berrien Rotary CLUB

Coming together again after a long quarantine absence was wonderful for members of the NBRC. We had a wonderful time catching up with each other and kicking off the new year. District Governor Steve Barnes inducted a new president, Lisa Smart, and a new member, Alonso Martinez. Then he lead the swearing-in of the 2020-21 officers. Outgoing president, Richard Huth, passed the gavel to the incoming president. Appreciation to Tony Lanier and David Money was given for the work they put into the new T-Ball field. Hopes were high for the coming year and the upcoming events.

A Message from NBRC President, Lisa Smart

Today is the day we have all anticipated—the day we could join back together as a club (or actually as a family). While 2020 has certainly proven to be a year to expect the unexpected, it has also been a year for us to see the strength in our community and within our club.

During this time, our club was able to show its support by making a donation to the Caring Place, and by our members going and helping to distribute food. I am so proud of the way our community has responded to this crisis, with restaurants helping families in need, with industries donating to our food banks, with neighbors helping neighbors, and with everyone supporting businesses as they have reopened. That is Nashville-Berrien County.

The theme for the 2020-2021 Rotary year is Rotary Opens Opportunities. I believe that together we can use this unprecedented time we live in to open those doors of opportunity. While the world looks different than it did when we last met—and certainly operates differently—, our mission remains the same to put Service above Self and make community a better place
for all.

I am honored to be chosen to serve in the position of President for this term. Thank you for this opportunity and your confidence in me as a leader among such a fine group of people.

One of the projects that NBRC undertook in the 2019-20 year was the construction of a T-Ball field at Berrien Parks & Recreation. Unfortunately, a pandemic cut the season short. Here are some pictures from the opening day.

CULTIVATING A PASSION FOR READING

Dr. Dennis Marks and Sue Raffelle, of the Valdosta Rotary Club, recently shared one of their favorite charities with us—Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. Marks and Raffelle invited us to join in Parton’s successful reading program which targets children from birth to 5 years. The goal is to teach every child to read by sending them a book each month until age 5. Doing this requires registering the children in the participating county and raising the necessary funding to pay for the books. The cost is $2 per month, per child. To send a child a book for one year, the cost is $125. For more information about the Imagination Library go https://imaginationlibrary.com

UNDERSTANDING THE BENEFITS OF PALLIATIVE CARE

Lindsey Rogers and Cindy Stone, community liaisons for Langdale Hospice House Palliative Care, explained palliative home care for patients suffering from chronic illnesses.
First, Rogers outlined the programs and resources available, such as palliative and hospice home-care and the Langdale Hospice House. Then she explained the differences. Hospice care generally occurs near end-of-life and focuses on comfort and emotional care when a cure and recovery is not a factor. Palliative care focuses on the seriously ill patient whose prognosis is hopeful through restorative care, curative treatments, and home care.
Palliative care enlists the services of a Nurse Practitioner, clinical social worker, and volunteers—all whose goals are to assist the homebound patient with medications, understanding treatments, financial and emotional support, and to provide relief for caregivers. Langdale Hospice House also offers a care center where patients can stay to give caregivers a needed break.

Will Print Advertising Still Work in 2018?

If you've been thinking that print advertising is dying, THINK again! Print advertising remains the strongest means of generating interest in a product or service. Unlike digital or tv ads which are there for the moment and quickly flash away, print ads allow the reader time to connect with the advertisement, to read the address or online link being supplied, and to enjoy the artwork. Readers actually look at print ads because print doesn't rush or feel rushed. This is very good article advocating the use of print advertising. Think PRINT when considering where to put your ad dollars!

Print will always remain relevant as it is highly respected, trusted and targeted. It drives high engagement rates and online searches
