A reminder about reality in a time of possibeleconfusion and unreality
(Submitted by Ross Maxfield)
 
Memory and neurological testing
 
 In the following analysis the French Professor Bruno Dubois, Director of the Institute of Memory and Alzheimer's Disease (IMMA) at La Pitié-Salpêtrière - Paris Hospitals, addresses the subject in a rather reassuring way:
"If anyone is aware of his/her memory problems, he/she does not have Alzheimer's.
 
People may say:
1. I forget the names of families; and
2. I do not remember where I put some things.
 It often happens in people 60 years and older where they complain that they lack memory.
"The information is always in the brain, it is the "processor" that is lacking.
 This is "Anosognosia" or temporary forgetfulness.
 More than half of people 60 and older have some symptoms that are due to age rather than disease.
The most common cases are:
- forgetting the name of a person;
- going to a room in the house and not remembering why we were going there;
- a blank memory for a movie title, or an actor or actress; and
- a waste of time searching where we left our glasses or keys.
 After 60 years most people have such a difficulty, which indicates that it is not a disease but rather a characteristic due to the passage of years.
 Many people are concerned about these oversights, hence the importance of the following statements:
 "Those who are conscious of being forgetful have no serious problem of memory.” and
"Those who suffer from a memory illness or Alzheimer's, are not aware of what is happening.”
 
Professor Bruno Dubois, Director of IMMA, reassures the majority of people concerned about their oversights:
"The more we complain about memory loss, the less likely we are to suffer from memory sickness.”
 
Now for a little neurological test: Only use your eyes!
[You may have done this before, but bear with this.]

 If you pass these three tests without problem:
 - You can cancel your annual visit to the neurologist.
- Your brain is in perfect shape!
- You are far from having any relationship with Alzheimer’s.
 So, share this with your over-55 friends - it can reassure them.
 
 
 
Helen’s Herald #48
 
What a busy week it has been. On Monday Di Harrison and I presented a cheque for $5000 to Gippsland Centenary House for the upgrading of their security system and door locks. While we were there, we had a tour, what a great place for patients and their families to stay while they are having treatment at the Latrobe Regional Hospital. We also presented a $5000 cheque to Latrobe Regional Hospital for their fundraising project of purchasing 14 new defibrillators. All the money donated came from proceeds raised
on the Rotary Club of Moe golf day which was held in March 2020.
Secretary Di Harrison reported that several members of our club attended the District changeover via zoom on Sunday.
D.G Mark Humphries has been invited to our changeover this Monday.
I enjoyed visiting Rotarians Yesterday to hand out Certificates but I could not visit everybody, so I would like to catch up with the rest in the future to thank them personally.
As this is my final Herald as President, I must say that to be asked to do this job was very daunting at first, but with the support of the members of Rotary I believe that I overcame my doubts and fears, and I encourage all members that if asked to be President, give it a thought it is a worthwhile experience.
What an exciting year I have had I feel I have grown and become more confident.
 
Thankyou to all Rotarians who have been there to support me over the last year. Even as I am winding up my year, I feel that as a club we have been blessed in the knowledge that we have each other for support
in this unusual time.
See you all for the changeover on Monday.
 
President Helen Morrison

Forthcoming Events
 
CLUB EVENTS:
 
 
1. RC of Moe Changeover Information
 
To be held via Zoom on Monday 6 July commencing at 7.00pm.
 
If you would like some companionship, please consider inviting a fellow Rotarian
and their partner), over to your home, that is, if you feel comfortable doing so.
There are a couple of Rotarians who have not engaged with virtual meetings for various reasons,
so you may like to issue an invitation one of those Rotarians to come to your place
to watch the Changeover. This may help provide some sense of fellowship
as well as to enjoy a few laughs!!
 
Please be aware that current social restrictions limit the number of people
inside private homes to five. It would be good practise to have hand sanitiser
available and maintain social distancing where possible.
 
The Changeover will probably go for about 30 mins if everything goes well!
So, meal time can be scheduled either before the meeting or afterwards.
As part of  the etiquette for a Zoom meeting, please refrain from eating during the session.
There are no issues with drinking wine, tea/coffee during the meeting!
You will also need to be on mute unless you are invited to speak.
 
Robin Noakes has kindly offered to be the Zoom moderator and Bryce Eishold
will be the MC/Chairman for the evening. They will be working together at Robin's place
so the event runs smoothly. 
 
DG Mark Humphries has accepted an invitation to be present and, with PDG Bryon Puddy's blessing,
DG Mark will induct myself as the Club President. He will also give a brief presentation later
in the proceedings on the Rotary Centenary Project.
 
President Helen and myself will be delivering framed certificates to outgoing Board members; 
framed certificates to members who have achieved 100 percent attendance;
and badges to incoming Board members. We are aiming to do this on Friday, 3 July.
 
On that day, Annual Reports, together with a printed copy of the
Changeover Program, will be also be personally delivered to residences.
Thank you Rog for volunteering to assist with deliveries. Much appreciated.
 
President Helen will announce the PHF recipient at the actual Changeover
together with the Rotarian of the Year award to maintain an element of surprise!! 
 
As Changeover is usually a very special club event, please dress up as you would normally! 
 
Please check your emails as Robin Noakes will send out a Zoom invitation
for the Changeover meeting later next week.
