Special Meeting / Field Trip at Hiwassee College
We got to see the new Hiwassee Dental Hygiene Mobile Lab and their newly expanded Dental Hygiene Classrooms as we evaluate our club’s involvement and support for this new program. We also inducted our newest RCTL member Simon Bradbury, who has transferred from the Pigeon Forge Club were he was very active and a Past President. Simon’s parents, Phillip and Judith, Farragut Rotarians, attended along with many visiting Rotarians from Pigeon Forge Club including PDG Jerry Wear and his wife Linda.
Attendance: 14 Members; 13 Visitors including spouses, parents and a large Pigeon Forge Rotary Club contingent.
Here’s a photo gallery of our Hiwassee Dental Hygiene Classroom and Mobile Lab tour.

PolioPlus Donations for 2016-17
Thanks to our many members who have already made their 2016-17 polio donation. If you’ve not done so, now is a good time to make your annual donation of at least $40. Make your check payable to “The Rotary Foundation”, notate it for “PolioPlus” and give it to Treasurer Bob Milhiser. You can also donate directly via credit card through the RI website.
Seivier County Firestorm Fund
Five local Rotary clubs will use established relationships with county schools to identify children and families most in need of assistance. Highest priority will be given to those children and families that lost their homes and belongings and who did not have insurance. Funds will be used to provide families with what they might need to get back on their feet again.
Others left their homes suddenly without taking their medications with them. Rotarians will be working with the Mountain Hope Good Shepard Medical Clinic to assist with replacing medications for people who are displaced by the fire.
Rotarians are donating their time to ensure that 100% of funds raised in this effort will be used to help the people that were directly impacted by the fires. Please help! Your tax-deductible contribution can be made here:
