BRAGS
 
 
Jason Stillwell (Rotarian of the Month): Jason's last free brag consisted of him thanking everyone that has helped in the past serving at the Good Samaritan Shelter. He also took the opportunity to urge others that haven't as of yet, to hopefully come forward and lend a hand in the coming months. Please contact Jason directly if you would like to sign up.
 
Jerry Schmidt: Recently returned from Phoenix where he did a little business and helped his daughter move into her new home. He now needs another vacation to recuperate from this one. $25
 
Dan Blough: Dan & Peggy are very proud of their dog Tanner and love him with all their heart. They have had him for seven years now and definitely got a great deal when they purchased him for $100. Now unfortunately, it's time to make up for the great deal as recent veterinarian bills exceeded over $11,000surprise. Anyway, the most important point is that he is a valued member of the family and worth every penny.
 
Debbie Blow: Was excited to announce that the recent OCAF fundraiser was an overwhelming success and raised much needed dollars for a very worthy cause. FYI: Debbie's homemade cheesecake by itself raised $1,200    $25
 
 
Shannon Seifert: The kickoff for the annual YMCA Campaign began this past week. A 60's hippy theme was the attire that everyone wore on opening night. Shannon singled out Mike Gibson for wearing a shirt that blended into the wall decorations (see above). Gary Nemetz and his wife Christie were also a part of the evening "I got you babe" fun. Gary added a "Far Out Man" and also bragged $50
 
 
FINES:

Mike Moats: The President was just "itching" to give Dr. Moats a sizeable fine for sending out numerous patient e-mails reminding them of their upcoming appointment. In his defense, Mike assured President Buhring that he is now only an employee of this big corporation and these type of things are most definitely out of his hands. Makes sense...........but it still cost him $50

PROGRAM
 
Casa of Hope
Connie Koski
 
 
This morning our club was pleased to have Connie Koski, a representative of Casa of Hope, come and speak to us about human trafficking and what effect it has on our local community.
 
Ms. Kaski reminded us that around 95% of all trafficked individuals are women. They are enticed to come to our country from foreign lands with promises of a better more prosperous life in the United States. Once here, the felony trafficker takes over their life and decisions which force them to become sex slaves in various illegal businesses throughout the country. They have no choice but to do as they are told or face serious and harmful repercussions from their captor.
 
Casa of Hope is helping these women break away from this sad existence and is in the process of creating a transition home for them to  come to and distance themselves from this type of life. Connie was a very informative speaker and took many questions from the audience after she was done. She urged people to call (888) 373-7888 if anyone suspects that someone may need help. At the end of the program our club was proud to present the organization with a donation of $1,000 to help fund their current project.
