Welcome to our guests from the Rotary Club of Fort Erie, (President John Maurice,
Past President Flo Odding, President Elect Ian Johnson, Treasurer John Bartlett,
Secretary Lorne White and Club Service Scott Broda), to Angela Carter, present eClub
member and possible NEW member, to Greta Zsikla, newly arrived YE student from
Hungary and home from vacation in the north with the Taylors, and to our guest speakers
Dr. Jennifer Mueller and Fran Gregoski from the Welland McMaster Family Health
Meridian Community Centre Grand Opening Weekend.  The Club has been given 14
tickets to opening ceremony on Friday, Sept 14 at 8pm.  If you would like to attend,
please contact Mel.  Saturday, Sept 15 is public open house.  We will set up an information
table in partnership with the library from 10-3.  Volunteers are needed for 2 hour shifts
during the day to man the table. 
Business: Mayor’s Debate. Any updates? Jodi said she would send out the link to get a
ticket as there are only 254 seats due to fire restrictions, etc., and those wishing to go as
volunteer OR spectator need to sign up.
TV Auction. Annie gave out this year’s canvasser kits to those present. Mentioned that
we’d brought in $30,000 worth of donations but made only $16,000 from the bids. In an
effort to increase our fundraising, the minimum donation amount is $60 this year. A
reminder that gift cards tend to bring in close to 100% of the value. Paul S in his role as
fundraising lead said we need to replace Mudfest monies and increasing our donations by
getting one more item than last year could make quite a difference.
Fundraising. Paul said he welcomes ideas of other possibilities to add to the TV Auction.
Paul Harris Evening Nov 1.  If you have any community volunteers that deserve Paul Harris
recognition, let Mel know.
Welland McMaster family Health Team Presentation: Jennifer and Fran presented
together. Evolutions of Health Care – moving from hospitals into home and community;
technology connects patient health info; Family Health Teams provide patient-centred care. Who We Are – non-profit, incorporated August 1, 2011; located 555 Prince Charles Dr., North; 10 family Physicians, 6 from Rose City and 4 from
Pancake Lane; 18,000 patients & 14 FHT staff; physician/community lead board of
directors. Model of a FHT – population-based person centred comprehensive primary
care services with eye on needs of community. For example, programs include Memory
Clinic, Hospital Discharge Program, Heart Health, Thrive Despite Pain. Anchor Teams
priorities are Mental Health and Health Links. This year seniors, emergency room visits,
opioid de-prescribing, cancer prevention and migrant worker health care are the priorities.
Medical students have placements at clinic and do their clinical exams there. Community
Partners – include Niagara Hospice, Niagara Health, DSBN, Welland Public Library in
Seaway Mall, McMaster University. Migrant Workers – want to partner with community
to sponsor clinics for these workers. Action Plan – MOH contract ends 2002. They’ll
transition to LHIN during next 3-4 years. Continue to ID health needs of community &
support patients. Evolve services to include community at large. Wonderful that so much
is happening – well-kept secret that they’re trying to share!
Happy Loonies: No time.    
                                                                                                                                                                  50-50 Draw: Jody’s ticket won the draw but no Ace of Spades.
Reminder: Next week we are back at Lookout Point. We will be having breakfast at the
Community Centre when January-part February closure happens.                                                                                         Be the inspiration!
