District Governor Roger Ptolemy attended our meeting on December 21st to present a number of new Paul Harris Fellow pins. Carol McGuire received her first Paul Harris Fellow Pin. Daybreak members that were honored as Multiple Paul Harris Fellows were Eddie Chueng +4, (pictured with Roger); Bard Heroy +1; receiving in abstention were Jan Williams +6; Bill Tarpley,+7; Dorothy Tarpley,+3; and Richard Carpenter+1.

After Roger's presentation, our own BJ Boucher presented background on The Adopt-A-Native-Elder Program started through the efforts of BJ's friend Linda Myers in Utah. The program supports over 500 traditional elders who live in the northern portion of Arizona and southern Utah. The activities of the program focus on helping traditional elders live on the land in the traditional ways of The People, as they have for thousands of years. This Program is assisted by traditional Dine' people who serve as coordinators in various parts of the reservation to help determine the needs of the elders in their own culture and lifestyle. This program has no political or religious ties and is a tax exempt NGO. Further information can be researched at the following web address. http://www.anelder.org. Daybreak is exploring the potential of working with this organization to develop a meaningful service project for Daybreak, or our Interact Club.
