October  28:  Nutrition First  Program

Nutrition plays vital role in early childhood development. Sue Maxwell, program director for Community Action Agency’s Nutrition First program, will provide an overview of this USDA federally funded program, which helps provide education and support for daycare providers as they enhance meals served to children in homebased daycares and adult care programs. Currently, our local Nutrition First program supports over 136 providers, located in 11 Oregon counties, and facilitates close to 3 million dollars in federal reimbursements each year to our region. 
Program Chair: Cyndi Leinassar
Message from President Sue
Greetings fellow Rotarians.
As we were bundled up, enjoying the fire pit the other afternoon, we were marveling over how beautiful the fall leaves are right now, and reflecting on the importance of sitting back and appreciating the beautiful area in which we live. Below is a poem for your enjoyment. See you next week!
I Like Fall
Poet: Aileen Fisher

I like fall:
it always smells smoky,
chimneys wake early,
the sun is poky;

Folks go past
in a hustle and bustle,
and when I scuff
in the leaves, they rustle.

I like fall:
all the hills are hazy,
and after a frost
the puddles look glazy;

And nuts rattle down
where nobody’s living.
and pretty soon…
it will be Thanksgiving.
