A REALLY scary review of “Telematic Technologies.” Basically, a review of the new systems that will
wirelessly connect your car to the manufacturer and to the government.
We won’t need traffic cops anymore. Your car will tattle on you and you’ll get a ticket by mail. Or maybe
by text. DON’T TEXT WHILE DRIVING and your car will pass that along too!
Thanks for all of the good news, Rory.
Denice Amante presented a whole bunch of really good reasons why we
should all donate blood.
Everyone should consider the benefits of blood donation – as Denise
noted, there is no existing technology that enables us to synthesize
blood – so we all need to help!
Next week – 10am for the parade, 11:30 for the presentations.

The cost per camper to Camp Pivika for five nights of camp is $1,800.00 while the charge is $975.00. If they get a scholarship, their is a co-pay of $100.00. Their funding comes from local organizations and fundraisers as wells as significant grants.
Campers range in age from eight years to some in their 70s. Enrollment is way up 460 enrolled for this summer, which is a record. The camp offers a numbers of ways for campers and parents to transition slowly into participating fully in the camp experience. So they work with families as well as those with disabilities, including a camp for moms. Camp Pivika continues to provide an adaptive pool and and an adaptive equestrian program. A new project in the works is a one of a kind adaptive zip line, equipped with a race car seat. We should get to see it when we meet here next year.
