Club News
 Program for Oct 17th - The program was club business in which website reports were shared with the members attending.  Reports such as age distribution was reviewed and it was noted several members have not included their birth year on our website, therefore, some of the data is skewed since these members are listed as 1 year old.  Several comments were brought up regarding making changes to our membership structure in an attempt to attract members and implementing ways to enhance membership retention.  One ideas was to have a lower dues for younger members and allow the use of corportate memberships.  These ideas will be reviewed by the membership committee and at future board meetings. Stay tuned for possible revisions to our membership practices. 
 
New Member - Elizabeth Gullingham  has applied to become a member and has been approved by the board for membership. She is being sponsored by Paulette Kershko and works for Paulette as a New York State Certified Court System Secretary to Judge Kershko.  Elizabeth has been volunteering for the past two (2) for our Childrens Book program.  She will be inducted on Oct 31st, 2109.  Please extend a warm welcome to Elizabeth at upcoming meetings.

Speaker:  Pam Fischer, The Wood Theater spoke about her life long struggle with declining hearing ability and how a Cochlear Implant has changed her life.  She provided details about how the Cochlear implant works and how complex the tuning of the implant is to get the right settings for daily use and for each individual.  Most recently, she visited her audiologists to tune her impant which made a world of difference.  As a member of the board for the Wood Theater she has has been part of a project to implement technology into the Wood Theater which would allow hearing impaired to receive sound directly into their impant or hearing aid which would make listening to performances much, much easier and enjoyable without background noise disturbance.  The cost of this technology is approximately $16,000.  Pam was instrumental in obtaining enough contributions to be able to purchase this equipment.  It will be the first application of this technology in the area.
