The Galeton Rotary club met at the Ox Yoke Inn

The Galeton Rotary club met at the Ox Yoke Inn on Thursday, February 27th, with Club President Doug Reeves presiding.

The club welcomed back club vice president, Pete Folk. Pete was sidelined due to having open heart surgery last month. We were very pleased to see Pete. Pete has been very active in Rotary and is currently serving as assistant district governor for our district. Pete is in charge of the 2014 Woodsmen's Show and besides that very big job he keeps our club on the right Rotary track.

Two non Rotarian' , Jeffery and Buddy Sutton have volunteered to help set up and run the show in August. This news was well received by the club.

The program was a talk by Patrice Levavassuer, Director of the Cole Foundation and director of patient services and community outreach for Cole Memorial Hospital. She spoke about what is happening at Cole. The new emergency department expansion and construction is now complete and is functioning very well. She noted that plans for the future includes a $7 million addition to the operating room facilities which will help accommodate the ever growing orthopedic sports medicine department. 

She took many questions from the club concerning the Galeton Health Center. 

Cole Memorial is actively working to fill the void here since Dr. Callahan's retirement. In the meantime the center is staffed with medical personal and remains very busy caring for the medical needs of Galeton. 

A free flu shot clinic will take place on March 7th at the health center and will co-sponsor with Rotary, a blood analysis from 7AM to 10AM on Saturday March 22 at the First Presbyterian Church. On March 12th two members of the Cole staff will speak at the Germania Luncheon Club and talk about managed care.

Next week students from the Galeton Area school will speak to the club about the "Four Way Test"
