We had a great cleanup on Suzie Ebert Island Saturday morning. It started off cool but got hot very quickly. We did a good job at our first attempt at trying to recycle aluminum cans. We had 10 volunteers and collected 3 bags of aluminum cans and 7 bags of trash. The picnic afterwards was a great time as well! Thank you to Joel Collins for letting us park at his house and use his boat and a huge thank you to the Hite’s for hosting the picnic at there house afterwards. Look forward to doing this again in the fall.

On Wednesday, June 6th our speaker was Betty Jean Gall from the Quilts of Valor Foundation. She gave us some background on how the foundation got started. Quilts of Valor Foundation was started in Catherine Roberts sewing room in Seaford, Delaware. Ms. Roberts son was doing a year-long deployment in Iraq so it was her desire to see that returning troops were welcomed home with and love and gratitude provided the rest. These awarded quilts serve as tangible reminders of appreciation and gratitude to service members. Ms. Gall informed the club of how she became involved with the Foundation. She also informed us that over 160,000 veterans and current military personnel have been awarded Quilts of Valor. Three of our very own were awarded Quilts of Valor:  Jay Seward,  Jeff Baldwin, and  Gene Hartsell.  It was great to hear about this great Foundation honoring our Military and Veterans.

He gave us some history behind the hospital and its future. Dr. Bill Phillips told us about the cardiovascular program at Providence. He informed the club rise of heart disease and some factors that are causing this disease to continue to rise. The two were very informative and the club was glad to have them as speakers.
