Today’s Program – “Reid Sawyer – Combating Terrorism Center”.                                  

Rotary Last Week – September 30

If it seemed we were going to the dogs at the meeting, that’s a slight misinterpretation. They came to us!  Ann Horner, husband Col. Thom Weafer , Son Jack, and Companion dog “Justine”, related how they attended a course on Long Island, “Canines For Independence”. They trained with Justine, who is part Lab/Retriever and is a skilled companion dog. She can almost speak. The school trains dogs who assist persons with various disabilities, such as hearing, etc. (They don’t train Seeing Eye dogs.)  Ann also showed a training video.  A Superb program!
