In Franklin County, if you or a loved one have a drug addiction problem, you should know there is help available. You can go to any police station and turn over drugs and paraphernalia for destruction without being charged. Our speaker described Get Back Up, a program to help those who don't know where to turn. "We're not going to arrest ourselves to a solution." ... See MoreSee Less

Sue Barthalow makes a point (literally) about the early days of Quincy Village and it's founding as an orphanage. An old folks home was added a few years later. Stephanie Parsons filled us in on what's happening now, 115 years later. They are justifiably proud of the facility, staff, and especially the residents. ... See MoreSee Less

Yikes! How did I overlook posting this? George Buckey, left, received a ruby level Paul Harris Fellow award at last week's meeting. Making the presentation was Club President, Paul Lochstampfor. George received a well deserved standing ovation. For the delayed post, I should receive something well deserved, also. Sorry George. I'm a fraction of your age, and my brain is only working at a fraction of yours. Congratulations. ... See MoreSee Less

Barb Martin brought us today's fun fact: 80% of brain development occurs in the first 1,000 days. Which is why, using over $700k in grant monies, the Waynesboro Area School District's Pre-natal to 3rd Grade Coalition is expanding to five classrooms of preschoolers this year. And even then, it is estimated that 80% of the need for quality preschool will be unmet. Clearly, there is important work to be done. For more information, or to become involved, contact the school district. ... See MoreSee Less
