Mediator Dawn Hayes took center stage at this week's Rotary luncheon and worked overtime (no worries, we paid her time and a half in pizza!) to educate the club on Worker's Comp in the workplace. It was another packed house as Dawn enlightened the members on ways to have a plan in place and take care of employees that may have had an injury on the job.
 
Prior to her taking the mic, the club tried its best to give one of our illustrious Past Presidents, Jeff Reynolds, a harmoniously melodies version of Happy Birthday. In the end, we failed miserably, and Jeff still remains the only Rotarian that seems to start us off on key. Well, at least a key that doesn't make dogs howl or glass break or guests vow to never come back!
 
Everyone wished Justin and the Northcutt family good luck with their daughter Bailey's surgery in Chicago. Good luck and God Bless for a speedy recovery, Justin!
 
Ryan Burley once again let the club know about the Bustin' Clays Clay Shoot on Saturday, September 24th at the Fish Hawk Sporting Clays. The club is still in need of sponsors, shooters, and raffle prizes. Sell those tickets!
 
The day belonged to Dawn Hayes, though, as she walked the club through some scenarios involving worker's comp claims, best practices and must do's in the workplace with the employee's well-being always at the forefront in decisions along the way. Thanks, Dawn and thanks to John Gardner for setting up another great guest speaker!
 
This week the club will be celebrating a number of wedding anniversaries including Saree and Pat Skidmore who will be celebrating their 41st anniversary on September 13th! Ann and Dick Eatman have several more years under their belts as they celebrate their 53rd anniversary on the 14th and Tammy and Michael Hayes celebrate 21 years of marriage on the 16th. Congrats to all of you lucky guys, and our sincere sympathies to all of your wives for putting up with you for a collective 115 years!!
