Rotary hears about MRC

Rushville Rotary met Aug. 20 in the Rush Memorial Hospital conference center.

President Jan Dimick called the meeting to order. Dr. John Williams led the Pledge of Allegiance. Kevin Snyder provided a short prayer.

Gracie Marlatt was the Mystery Person and awarded the free lunch to Kevin Green to help celebrate his return following a somewhat extended absence.

President Jan announced that if you bring in two cans of vegetables for the local food pantry you are exempt from fines for the week. Also, if you miss a meeting you must bring in two cans of vegetables or pay $1.

Club members welcomed a new member. Jason Clemmons initiated John McCane to Rotary. Welcome, John! We look forward to working with you.

Several Rotarians paid $1 to brag about something. They included John Worth on one of his son’s birthdays and on being an expectant grandfather; Paul Barada Sr. on a grandson scoring a touchdown on a quarterback sneak to win the game; Bill Griffis on the Colts whipping up on the Giants; Dr. Steve Sickbert on son Ross’s 28th birthday; Gracie Marlatt on her youngest son getting married and his fiancé landing a new job; President Jan on an upcoming vacation via motorcycle; Theresa Alexander on her aunt’s recovering from a bad auto accident; and John McCane on some promising news regarding North Industrial Park.

John Worth had a chance to Find the Queen this week but did not, so the jackpot rolls over to next week.

Kevin Green, with much assistance from Bill Griffis, was responsible for the weekly program. He introduced Heather English, the Rush County Medical Reserve Corps coordinator.

The MRC is a group of volunteers who undergo various training so they’ll be ready to immediately begin providing assistance in the event of a major disaster or pandemic.

English is looking for volunteers and a medical background is not required.

For more information, or to volunteer, contact English at 765-914-2562, e-mail or visit the Rush County Health Department on the first floor of the Rush County Courthouse.
