LE ROY PENNYSAVER & NEWS - NOVEMBER 5, 2017 The Family of Michael Mancuso wish to thank all the friends, neighbors and his other "families", who brought meals, called, sent cards and attended the service. Thanks for all the prayers and kind gestures. Special thanks to the HCR Home Care Nurses. For all their help and care, during his extended illness. The number of friends and aquain- taces is overwhelm- ing. He touched the lives of so many people. It makes us proud to be his family. Thanks so much for everything. LeRotary Notes The Rotary Club of LeRoy was brought to order by President Scott McCumiskey on October 25, 2017. Guest speak- er Shannon Murphy, Director of Treatment at Genesee County Council on Alcohol and Sub- stance Abuse and Nancy Baker, wife of Rotarian Dr. Bruce Bak- er, were introduced as todays guests. Several announce- ments were made. Bob Bennett reminded the Club that Novem- ber 5th is our Appliance Raf- fle. Tickets may be purchased from any Rotary Club of LeRoy member. Scott McCumiskey announced the Canadian RLI session is December 2nd and the American RLI session is March 24th. It was announced with a heavy heart that Rotari- an Gary Wilcox passed away. Gary was remembered as an active Rotarian. He participated in Rotary shows throughout the 70’s-90’s. He was also dedicat- ed to the Milne Scholarship pro- gram. Gary gave a great deal to the community of LeRoy as a school superintendent, music teacher and guidance counselor. President Scott re- viewed missed meetings. Mar- tha Bailey, Tim Moag, Lynne Belluscio, and Phil Weise all had 1 miss. Nan Chiull had 3 misses. The fining session was sparse. Sam Vagg was fined for Interact’s huge turnout. There were approximately 80 students, from grades 7-12, in attendance at the informational meetings. The students were encouraged to identify issues to work on and they diligently came up with 27 ideas! Early Act also had a wonderful turnout with 60 chil- dren! It was noted that other Rotary Clubs are envious of our highly successful Interact and Early Act programs. Our program today, The Opioid Crisis, was pre- sented by Dr. Bruce Baker and Shannon Murphy, Director of Treatment at Genesee County Council on Alcohol and Sub- stance Abuse. For 40 years GCASAhas been providing pre- vention, treatment, and recovery services for people with addic- tions. With great knowledge and passion Dr. Baker and Ms. Murphy presented the history of opioid use in this country. Opi- oids are medications that act on opioid receptors in both the spi- nal cord and brain to reduce the intensity of pain signal percep- tion. They also affect brain ar- eas that control emotion, which can further diminish the effects of painful stimuli. In addition to relieving pain, opioids also acti- vate reward regions in the brain causing euphoria thus resulting in the potential for misuse and addiction. This brings us to the current opioid crisis. The opioid war has claimed 200,000 lives, more than three times the num- ber of U.S. deaths in the Viet- nam War. Dr. Baker and Ms. Murphy spoke about the horrific impact opioid addiction has had on our communities and the treatment challenges. Another enlightening meeting was brought to a close by President Scott McCumis- key.
