Greetings, Dublin AM Rotarians:
 
Another year is here with a new President … with a major fear factor … “just don’t screw this up”.  However, when I look around the club, I see so much talent and desire to provide ‘service above self’, I am confident our members will keep the momentum going.  So here we go!
 
Besides keeping the good stuff going, my goal is to encourage fellowship via the following communication initiatives:
  • Walk With a Rotarian – Wednesdays at 7:30 AM – opportunity for members to enjoy
  • Use old school communication – phone calls and US Mail (bust through the plethora of email)
  • Get Back in The Habit – encourage more attendance at meetings and volunteer efforts with some new twists and ideas:
  1. Field Trip – August 5th – to get in the ‘Car Show’ spirit, we will tour the TRC (Transportation Research Center - 10820 State Route 347, East Liberty, OH 43319).  Lou Charobee coordinated this very special tour opportunity which is not open to the general public.
     
  2.  Rotary Club Field Trip – September 23rd – Members are encouraged to attend a different Rotary Club this week, to learn more about what other clubs are doing.  Board Members will help with coordinating car pools if needed.
     
  3. Multi Club Meeting – October 7th – District Governor Price Finley will join us at our meeting venue, along with the Marysville, Worthington AM, and Dublin Worthington Clubs to present District 6690 Efforts.
IMAGINE.  “You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one …” These are John Lennon lyrics from the 1971 song, “Imagine”.  This song is featured as our Rotary theme for our 2022 – 2023 calendar year.  You will get tired of this song but I hope you will not tire of its meaning and what dreams our Dublin AM Rotary Club can achieve.
 
I am privileged to have the opportunity to lead our Dublin AM Rotary Club.  What I have found thus far is a ridiculous amount of talent within our club.  We are 90+ tireless members who continue to answer to the call.  We have 20 Board Members who commit to year round planning and execution.  We have 32 years of Past Presidents who provide wisdom and continued energy and enthusiasm.
 
If you IMAGINE – the possibilities are endless.  Let’s go!
 
Susan

Our new President, Susan West, spoke at this week’s meeting about her vision for our Dublin AM Rotary Club and the focus for this year.  Susan recently attended the Rotary Convention and reported on some of the ideas from the convention.
More about Susan West:

Susan’s leadership experiences include her current role as Private Banker and Vice President at The State Bank and Trust Company. Susan has worked in banking and finance since 1986. One of the things she enjoys about working at State Bank is the service-minded team approach; how the goals and needs of her clients always come first. As Vice President and Private Banker, she understands the complex financial situations and advanced service needs of her clients, and is confident in providing a range of products and services to help them meet their short-term and long-term goals.

Susan received her bachelor’s degree from The Ohio State University. She’s most proud that she and her husband raised their four children to be positive contributors to society. Speaking of kids, Susan is the ninth of ten kids in her family.

When she’s not working, she enjoys a wide range of outdoor activities, including: biking, sailing, windsurfing, officiating rowing regattas, and attending OSU tailgates.

“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”   Susan has held several roles in our Rotary Club.  She is hoping you will join her in a "Walk with a Rotarian" this year - a new initiative Susan is starting...   stay tuned for more information.

Joining us on June 17th was Aaron Westbrook, CEO of Form5 Prosthetics, a nonprofit organization focused on empowering people to successfully interact with their world and their future. As part of its mission, Form5 is committed to providing custom-application prosthetics at no cost to recipients.

Despite being born with only one hand, Aaron didn't try out his first prosthesis until he was a freshman in high school. Unfortunately, it did not fit well – and it was expensive, especially considering that he would eventually outgrow it. Disappointed but not defeated, Aaron embarked on a do-it-yourself mission to make his own prosthesis.

At 15, Aaron designed and 3-D printed his own prosthesis utilizing New Albany School’s MIT Fabrication Lab. With the help of E-Nable, a global movement dedicated to 3D printing prosthetics hands and arms for those in need, Aaron collaborated with them to test their open-source designs.

Inspired to purchase his own 3D printer, he raised enough money through a Kickstarter campaign to make this a reality and then later launched Form5 Prosthetics. In its first year as an organization (2018), Form5 provided five recipients with prosthetic devices, held various fundraising events, and collected plastic waste that could be recycled into 3D printer filament material. Additionally, Aaron began bridging industries, inviting passionate, talented professionals to serve on Form5’s board of directors.

In conjunction with running a full-fledged nonprofit organization, Aaron recently graduated from The Ohio State University.  Aaron is also President Elect of the New Albany Rotary.

Joining us on Friday, March 25 as our featured speaker, was Jonathan Thomas, Vice President of Planning & Evaluation at the Alcohol Drug and Mental Health Board of Franklin County.  Jonathan spoke about the new crisis center plans and status. 
 
The Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Board of Franklin County (ADAMH) is partnering with community stakeholders to address the continuum of crisis care in our community. The cornerstone of this continuum is the development of a new crisis center that will be the central and preferred destination in Franklin County for mental health and addiction crisis needs.

The crisis center will provide a safe and secure location offering a full array of services with integrated peer support at all levels. Most importantly, the crisis center will offer a no-wrong-door approach to ensure any adult arriving at the crisis center receives services. This new resource is intended to benefit everyone from individuals in crisis and their families to the overcrowded hospitals and first responders currently stretched to their limits.

Jonathan Thomas joined the ADAMH team in January 2015. In his role as Vice President, Planning & Evaluation, Jonathan is responsible for leading ADAMH’s planning and evaluation functions. He began his career working at an ADAMH-funded agency that focused on youth residential and treatment foster care programs. Jonathan then went on to learn from additional experiences with public policy, strategic planning, and program monitoring and evaluation in positions with the Ohio Department of Health and Ohio State’s Harding Hospital. Jonathan completed studies in both psychology and social work before earning his master’s degree in public policy and management from the John Glenn College of Public Affairs at The Ohio State University.

Our March 18th Rotary Meeting was hosted by our Dublin Rotaract Club. 
 
We were excited to have Kaitlyn Gushue and Rotaract members present achievements over the last two years, as well as give us a preview of their future goals, and programs designed to meet those goals.
 
Rotaract clubs bring together people ages 18 and older to exchange ideas with leaders in the community, develop leadership and professional skills, and have fun through service.  Rotary club sponsors offer guidance and support and work with Rotaract as partners in service.   
 
Rotaract began in 1968, as  a wall divided East and West Berlin, and the Cold War raged on. The U.S. and the Soviet Union were locked in a space race, and Apollo 8 became the first manned spacecraft to orbit the moon, sending back pictures of Earth from deep space.

It was at time this that Rotary members in North Carolina, USA, chartered the first Rotaract club, to provide young people opportunities for service.  A half-century has passed since those first Rotaract clubs began inspiring young leaders to take action to improve their communities. The world has changed, as has the way Rotaract members connect with one another. But the underlying values of the program, and what attracts people to it, remain remarkably the same. 
 
Rotary International currently has over 10,000 Rotaract clubs with over 200,000 Rotaractors.
