Caron Russell
  Cancer & HPV Vaccination
Full house at our weekly meeting - had to set up an extra table.   We had several returning Rotarian guests including Steve Certa, a District Governor from Weymouth MA who we have worked with in the past on an International project in Guatemala. Plus, we had several LHS students and their family members.  Rotarian Dave Bonillo was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation for his donation to Nite at the Races.  
We presented the LHS student-of-the-month awards and Orangevale Rotary member Ann Hively announced that our Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) student Olivia Gonzales will be going to Spain later this year.  Exciting for Olivia as she did not know where!  See the YouTube Video
New member Kimberly McCue gave here exciting "ice-breaker" speech, telling how she came to Lincoln, how she is committed to Service Above Self and how she became the director for the Lincoln Funeral Home.  She said "Stop in and see me sometime.  I serve a great cuppa coffee."
Our speaker for the day was our own incoming 2018-2019 club President Caron Russell.  Caron works with the American Cancer Society and spoke mainly about what can be done to prevent cervical cancer.  Vaccination of your youth (males and females) between the ages of 9 to 14 is the key to prevention.  Interesting that Rotary International may become active in this issue as part of our Maternal Health area of focus (like we did with Polio).

Caron also announced that the ACS Relay for Life will be regional this year with the relay being held at the Auburn Fairgrounds on August 17th.   There will be a local assembly of survivors at the Lincoln Woman's Club on April 21st.
