I can't believe the Holidays are here. A time to reflect and give Thanks. It's also Rotary's Disease Prevention and Treatment month. Most of you have met my daughter. She was diagnosed with epilepsy when she was 8 months old. Seizures have been a part of our lives now for over 33 years. My daughter has seizures everyday and is on several medications plus has a VNS planted in her chest. When I go up north or down south you hear information on seizure disorders but not here on the Central Coast and I'm not sure why that is. One in 26 people will have a seizure at some point in their lives. We should be talking about it. People need to be aware of the facts about seizures and the myths. Do you know what to do if someone has a seizure right in front of you? I want to start up that conversation here on the Central Coast.
Some things to remember; Barry is collecting coats, jacket, sweaters and sweatshirts. Please make sure they are in good condition. We also have our kids Christmas party happening at Black Lake golf Course on the 20th and our Adult party is on the 17th.
We will not be having an evening meeting this month. We will be dark that week but will resume our evening meetings in January. This last meeting was great. I love that members are bringing their spouses. It's a great opportunity for our family members to experience Rotary. I did take a vote on keeping the evening meeting or scraping it and the vote went to keeping it. I'm hoping that the few who do not attend will make an exception in the future.
This has been a very busy past few month with our club and I want to Thank all of you for helping in each event. This club is an amazing group of people.
