With Ford Barrett and Lou Barrier
The club is honored to have retired naval medical corpsman Lou Barrier as the speaker. Lou joined the Navy in 1949, before graduating from high school. The Korean War broke out the next year and the young Lou found himself facing the combat medics' greatest challenges as he served as a medic with the Marines.
Little more than a decade later he was sent to Viet Nam. There he functioned in many combat areas as a medical technician sent to gather information about disease-carrying insects that were present. Lou retired from the Navy in 1987 after 28 years.
But Lou Barrier did not really retire. He went about finishing his formal education, completing his GED, bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees in drug and alcohol treatment and mental health. After graduation he was hired to fill the director's position in the Chelan County Center for Alcohol and Drug Treatment. He served there for 12 years. His next stint was at Wenatchee Valley College, where he developed the drug and alcohol treatment course of study. After a dozen years at WVC, Lou retired and lives with his wife in Wenatchee.
Few people have Lou Barrier's wide background as a combat medic with a rare insight into the drug, alcohol, and mental health challenges faced by our veterans. We can look forward to Lou's sharing his war stories and many observations and perspectives as to what drives the many veterans that we see in our community.  The public is invited.

    WEEK IN REVIEW, Nov. 01 - Classification Talks
    with Carin Smith and Jon Volyn    
President Pete presiding, welcomed all present to the "I Love Lucy in the Chocolate Factory episode" of service clubs, then introduced Alice Meyer to introduce our first Classification speaker, Dr. Carin Smith, a retired veterinarian.  
They met two years ago serving together on the board of the Confluence Health Foundation, reminding Alice to invite all to the "Spirit of AZ Wells Gala" November 9 (See Karen McCart).
Carin used an informative PowerPoint to tell a little of her life story.  Click here to listen to the audio.  The photo shows Carin with 2 famous race horses, Affirmed and Seattle Slew.
Carin was born in Moses Lake on the USAF base. She showed photos of her family when young, including 3 sisters, all relocating to Los Angeles when she was 6 months old.  At age 12, they moved to Oregon, where her grandparents saved her from a troubled childhood and paid for her college at OSU, earning her 2 doctorates including OSU and WSU.  She worked in Billings, MT and Albuquerque, NM, before this valley in 2015.  She loved Montana.
Her college senior paper changed her life, because it was published by a peer-reviewed journal.  This led to other publications, and several books, some of which she says can now be bought for a penny on Amazon.  She won a writer's contest, and was licensed in 6 states, and was an international public speaker.  Now, retired, she and her husband Andy love to travel, and she enjoys volunteer work, and mosaic creations.  For much more, ...  Click here to listen to the audio .  You will discover a very entertaining speaker.
President Pete then surprise everyone by singing a serenade medley to Carin, which she wanted as a prize for winning a recent Appleseed trivia quiz.  Listen to the hilarious Audio of Pete's serenade.
President Pete introduced attorney Jon Volyn, his neighbor, who also used an excellent PowerPoint.  Click here to listen to the audio.  Jon's brother Scott is a prior member.  Jon first took a minute to praise Pres. Pete.
He was born near Spokane and has been a trial lawyer for 18 years, beginning in Boise with Idaho's 3rd largest law firm.  Now is in a partnership with brother Scott.  
Growing up, he attended a boarding high school, then Walla Walla college, and Idaho U because it was least costly.  Some career highlights:
•Argued before Idaho Appellate and Supreme Courts, 9th Circuit Court of Appeals
•Idaho District Bar President
•Multiple award recipient from Idaho and Washington for both excellence and service
•Named top 40 Lawyers under 40, top 100 Litigation Lawyers statewide
Jon brought and introduced his lovely wife Cindy.  For much more, click here to listen to the audio.  
Jon Volyn, at the end of his Classification talk, noted the next New-Member Breakfast (which he leads) Nov. 20.
Pete emphasized the need for members to support the concessions sales at the Battle of the Bridges Thursday night, to attend our Veterans' Day program, and to support planned rock-spreading at Rotary Park Monday AM, and other upcoming events (including Gil & Kay Sparks' presentation at PYBUS U Nov 13, 7 PM).

End Polio Now/Club 60:  
Our ambitious goal has been set by President Pete at $10,000 ($192 per week!).
We continue our 10-year relationship with the Gates Foundation; since 2013, they have matched each dollar with $2 toward polio eradication.
Donations by club members on Nov. 1 = $56.88 are added to our share of the Area-9 polio meal of $227 thus bringing our total $1135 or $3405 with the Gates match.  This equates to 5686 lives saved. Collections at KPQ were $1133.  Read about World Polio Day, October 24
