A call to action for all Rotarians:  The Rotary District 7780 Recovery Initiative Committee in partnership with the City of Portland Public Health Division’s Overdose Prevention Project, is pleased to announce an opportunity for Rotarians in District 7780 to be trained in Recognizing and Responding to an Opiate/Heroin Overdose on Thursday, November 15, 2018, from 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM Pratt & Whitney Building Hannaford Hall on the Wells York County Community College Campus, located at 112 College Drive, Wells, ME.
 
This training is in response to the opiate epidemic sweeping across our country, where our Maine and New Hampshire communities are not immune.  Maine and New Hampshire saw 901 drug-induced deaths statewide in 2017.
 
Our communities must work together to make a difference and help fight this epidemic.  We can all potentially save a life and give hope to recovery.  Our Rotarians will learn about the opioid epidemic and substance use disorder and will be trained in how to recognize the signs of an overdose, how to perform first-aid, as well as how to administer Naloxone (the drug which reverses the affects of opioids).  Naloxone will be on hand to give out to those who attend.  The goal of this training is not only for life-saving purposes; it will hopefully help reduce the stigma attached to those with substance use disorder.   Please click on this link to RSVP, or email me at the email address below.   https://doodle.com/poll/8uq5tf95utm5bimy
 
Anyone with questions or requests for additional information is urged to contact Chief Bob MacKenzie at the Kennebunk Police Department, 207-604-1339 or email rmackenzie@kennebunkmaine.us.

RI President-elect Barry Rassin’s theme for 2018-19, Be the Inspiration, asks Rotarians to inspire change in the world and in each other. “I ask all of you to Be the Inspiration to help Rotary move from reaction to action — to take a hard look at the environmental issues that affect health and welfare around the world and do what we can to help.”
 
The Rotary Club of Saco Bay has a new Clynk fund raiser. We will deliver Clynk bags to you, and pick them up when full. All you need to do is to toss in your used returnable bottles. You can get bags for your picnics, ball games, camps, business, homes or anywhere you have empty bottles. If you would like 1, 2 or 25 bags, please let us know. Your help will be appreciated not only by the Rotary, but also by the many local and international causes that the Rotary helps. Thank you.
