This morning's meeting format was a forum.  After June 25, 2018, we are going to meet in forum to discuss our upcoming community service/fundraising event. John Goodhue presented letters and asked people to give to the Rotary Foundation.  Our club goal is for each member contribute $100 to The Rotary Foundation.  This is the foundation that supports serious Rotary projects worldwide.  He is asking at least from a donation from each person from each person.
Opening words: Pegg about D-Day
Pledge and song: Dale
Forum: Harry read a description of the Maine Program to De-Stigmatize Opioid Recovery. Importantly, he quoted there were 47,000 overdose deaths in US in just 2017, nearly the same number 50,000+ US deaths in the entire Vietnam War. Also, the gateway drug for 80% of addicts is a doctor's prescription.
He described the event, as education/public awareness, described along a walking/running path from Dublin to Harrisville (possibly to Historic Harrisville Inc-HHI) with information described along the way.  Kevin suggested that we make the walk reflective of the twists and turns along the way, and a bit hard, possible a full 5 miles.  The distance from Dublin Yankee parking lot to Historic Harrisville parking lot is about 5 miles with a gathering in the large meeting room in HHI.
Possible major sponsors are Phoenix House, Monadnock Hospital, Sentinel, Peterbourgh Ledger-Transcript, Cheshire Hospital, VFW Marlborough, Yankee Magazine, (We also have a long list from Bob M. )
Possible partners include Rotary's from Peterborough (Bob McDonald), Jaffrey Rindge, Hollis Brookline (Dale), Keene Rotary, Elm City Rotary (Craig Stockwell), ConVal Interact, Keene High Interact, Monadnock Regional Interact, Keene Rotaract (Keene and Elm City group), Yankee Magazine, Historic Harrisville, Dublin Store
Harry asked the group if all agreed that we should go forward (Jerry, Bill Gurney, and Rick were not there). This group agreed.
