LAST WEEK
Alexander Mingus (left in the photo in case you are wondering) gave us a wonderful briefing in all the good works that St. Vincent de Paul is doing here in the area for the homeless and down-and-outs – and now much for tornado relief. You can see that President Ted Greenwood was happy he arranged such an informative program. Alex has been with St. Vincent for a little over a year after his graduation from UD. He wanted to help the world – and he is!
The jackpot is $228 after Ted removed the last card but the two jokers and the Ace of Hearts. Dollar Draw winners now have a 33% chance of winning the
jackpot ($228) and 66% chance of paying another $5.
The meeting concluded with some coming year plans.

Last week at One Lincoln Park Pat Foley led a nice turnout (10) in a discussion of modern shopping habits and experiences, pro and con. And then . . .
WOW! The dollar draw took place. Paul Lamprinos was the lucky one, but he drew the jack of diamonds, not the Ace of Hearts. That leaves just the two jokers, the Ace of Hearts and the 4 of clubs in the deck to draw from. And the jackpot has ballooned to $224.50. One Lincoln Park provided
fine food (especially the eggs benedict).

The Glen at St. Joseph continuing good works for single mothers and their children, was told by Katherine Klain, development manager, last week.
It is always inspiring good news when an organization helping those in need can report continuing success year in and year out. And that’s what Ms. Klain (left, with our Khadijah) reported. In the shelter of The Glen, mothers and
children are helped to find their own way and to grow and learn. It starts with determined mothers and then determined helpers.
The Glen currently has 30 mothers and 45 children on a campus (St. Joseph Avenue) that has the resources to help them understand life and their relationship to God.

LAST WEEK
The speaker had to cancel and will be rescheduled. But President Ted conducted a nice meeting and we had an interesting discussion about current events and plans for the convention. Ted is going to prepare the gift goody bags for all the conventioneers – AND COULD USE SOME HELP. He even got Esther Price to donate some sweet delights to be included.

Another award for our phenomenal KHADIJAH ALI
WHO WILL BE ONE OF THOSE HONORED ON JUNE 8,
as the accompanying news release shows. The event will
be at the Presidential Banquet Center, 4548 Presidential
Way, Kettering, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The awards are being presented by the Believers
Christian Fellowship Church, 3010 McCall St., Dayton,
Rev. Dr. William E. Harris, pastor.
At this past week’s club meeting, members voted a $120
gift from our Foundation in honor of the event and to
assure that Khadijah and two guests could attend.

LAST WEEK
Last week Pat Foley led an interesting discussion of hate crimes and free speech, part of our regular monthly “Roundtable.” The local focus, of course, was on the May 25 Ku Klux Klan appearance in Courthouse Square. Pat outlined for us both the federal and Ohio definitions of “hate crimes” both of which get into rather fuzzy territory when you try to determine what constitutes an act of hate as against simple hateful speech.
The club’s clear preference for the May 25 Klan visit would be for the community to completely ignore the event, let it happen and then escort the hooded hombres out of the city and back to Indiana. There will be some counter-demonstrations, however, and the hope is that
it all ends peacefully.
Khadijah, celebrating a 70th birthday, left early and (of course) her buck won the draw. So she will try for the $195 jackpot this week.

Great meeting on care of folks with developmental disability AND we elected officers for the 2019-2020 club year.
There were multiple rounds of applause for Judy Leasure (receiving her Exchange cup from Ted Greenwood) who told us how Partners for Community Living cares for men and women who have special needs challenges. The term mental retardation is no longer acceptable. Caregivers are chronically underpaid, but their dedication is eloquently represented by Ms. Leasure, the development director.
NOW THE ELECTION: President, Khadfijah Ali; president-elect, Ted Greenwood; secretary, Jim Suddath.
The vote was unanimous with a special provision for the
secretary who will be primarily responsible for keeping the club in touch with National Headquarters.

Attacking the drug crisis: Mahajan Therapeutics....
Last week’s program was, as promised, educational with Dr. Varun Mahajan showing us slides of what his company does in the field of addiction and mental health. There is a headquarters here and offices in southern Ohio: Portsmouth, Wheelersburg and Ironton. That area has been identified as particularly hard hit by the opioid and heroin crisis. In the photo you can see Dr. Mahajan receiving his Exchange cup from President Greenwood. And you can’t miss Khadijah Ali, now a passionate member of the firm.

Ohio Consumers Counsel talk was a highlight last week.
Maybe you can tell from President Ted Greenwood’s smile that Amy Carles did a great job of introducing us all to the work of the Consumers Counsel. She is the senior outreach and education specialist.
She explained how the agency has overseen the operations of public utilities in the state for some 40 years. She warned against a variety of scams on gas, electric and telephone service. And she gave us a ton of educational materials. Great job!
