Program of September 12th - Dr. Kathy Braico, Medical Director of HH Ranch gave us an excellent presentation of her visit this past January to Bangladesh to train the trainers for how to better manage child birth.  The majority of children born in this country have a midwife attending the birth without the assistance of a doctor or fancy medical facilities.  She displayed the many training aids used to better educate how to prevent premature deaths with infants.  Since she has part of this effort over the past few years, the mortality rate of newborn infants has declined by 50%. The training aids, her trip to Bangladesh, and medical equipment used during child birth were made possible through funds provide by Rotary, particulary our Granville club.

Hurricane Dorian Relief Effort - We have decided to partner with a Rotary Club from Miami Florida that President Elect John Fitzgerald was a former member of, to send donations to the Bahamas Dorian Relief effort.  This will be like our Polio drive we did last year.  $25 or more will be greatly appreciated.  To donate, please make a check out to the Glens Falls Rotary Foundation with a note or memo earmarking it for the Bahamas Dorian Relief.  Our neighbors from the Northern Lake George Club collected $686 for this effort, so we need to raise at least this much as we can't be outdone by our small neighboring club. Any amount is acceptable.  When we have completed this effort, John Fitzgerald will present it the Miami Club.  Thank you for your support and all that you do for the community, both near and far.
