Yours in Rotary,
On Thursday August 6, Islip Rotary was visited by Matt DePace of GoHealth Urgent Care. Associated with North Shore LIJ, GoHealth are new, state of the art walk-in healthcare clinics that help alleviate the wait and frustration of a hospital emergency room experience. Matt then spoke about the social networking site LinkedIn. It was a great meeting attended by over 25 Rotarians- not bad for the middle of August!
Dr. Jeff Reynolds, president of the Family & Children's Association, gave a very poignant talk about a very big, and unfortunately growing problem on Long Island, and that is heroin and prescription drug addiction in young people.
On Thursday July 2, 2015, the Board of Directors for the Rotary Club of Islip was installed by PDG Russ Moran at a dinner held at Captain Bills Restaurant in Bay Shore. New president Eric Buehler, who also served as President six years ago, spoke about his plans for the year, Immediate Past President Tony D'Amico gave a resounding thank you speech for his year served, and Rotarian of the Year Karen Moss gave a heartfelt speech on her acceptance of this prestigious honor. A wonderful night was had by all.
On Thursday August 20th, the Islip Rotary Club had a wonderful evening spent at the Kismet home of Tom and Jacquie Jones! A beautiful sunset, great food and drink, and awesome fellowship made for a great evening! Thank you to Tom and his family, as well as to Sue Zaccheo for coordinating! Go Islip Rotary!
