Thursday Town Tip: Take time today to donate blood

Published

on

PLEASE MAKE TIME TO DONATE BLOOD TODAY, THURSDAY OCTOBER 11, 2018 and Spread the Word—A WHAT MATTERS Community Blood Drive will be held at the Front Royal United Methodist Church 10/11/18 from 1:30-6:30 pm.  Stop by the fellowship hall of the church at 1 W. Main Street in Front Royal and spend just ONE HOUR of your time and add YEARS to the lives of people in need of blood transfusions.

The Red Cross has over 130 years of experience providing humanitarian aid – including more than 70 years of supplying blood to those in need. “My Grandfather credits his survival in a WWII POW camp in Germany to packages sent by the American Red Cross. He traded his cigarettes for vitamins and wrote a journal on the wrappings that came with the packages.  As soon as he was liberated and returned to the USA, he made a donation to the American Red Cross and became a volunteer. My first volunteer activity was attending blood drives with him at the American Legion,” said Beth Medved Waller, blood drive sponsor. She added, “I’m so thankful to the many loyal donors who have supported the drives I’ve had in his memory throughout the years. And I look forward to seeing them and meeting more blood donor friends at this drive!”

Each pint of blood collected can help save up to three lives and will touch the lives of so many more. Donating blood is a completely FREE and easy way to pay it forward and make an impact on people in our community and across the country. Giving is even easier now with technology that enables donors to log online to schedule appointments and pre-complete the health questionnaire! Walk-ins are always appreciated as well.  Visit www.redcrossblood.org for more information about donating or to become a blood drive sponsor.

It’s not every day that we have the opportunity to do something that, with such little effort, has such a lifesaving impact. Please make time to donate today, and bring your children—you never know what an impact watching a loved one give will have on their future.  If you aren’t able to give or can’t give for health reasons, please spread the word and ask a friend. The number one reason people don’t give is because they haven’t been personally asked. Ask! Give! Save Lives!

Published

WHAT MATTERS Warren
Dr. Frederick and Dr. Daisy Broadhead of Front Royal Dental Care were able to get Warren County kids and local area schools excited about oral health in a big way. In honor of National Children’s Dental Health Month, the dentists held an art contest to encourage the importance of dental hygiene. The response was overwhelming with nearly 400 entries!

Front Royal Dental Care selected three winners from the following categories: K-1, grades 2-3 and grades 4-5. Front Royal Christian School, A.S. Rhodes and Ressie Jeffries were lucky to have the winning students. The selected students won a prize bag with a $50 gift card, children’s Sonicare electric toothbrush, dental travel kit, and a book.

A.S. Rhodes Elementary and Mountain Laurel Montessori School were awarded each a $1,000 donation for having the most participation by a public and private school.

Dr. Frederick Broadhead visited each of the schools to congratulate and present their donations. Mountain Laurel students were particularly excited to hear that they won a $1,000 for their school. The Directors of the school announced that the money will be put to good use as seed money to purchase additional property to expand their facilities.

The Director, Tara Johnson, has many people she’d like to thank – this was a community effort, and it shows:

  • I want to thank my phenomenally supportive principal, Dr. Smith. He has truly blessed me with a dream job.
  • I also appreciate the extraordinary legacy that Richard Follett has left behind as the former Director at Skyline HS. He continues to support my artistic endeavors!!!
  • A huge shout-out to Bo Taylor and Sharon Doffermire for continuing to keep our beautiful facility pristine. Their loving efforts and interest in our production, along with the entire Skyline custodial staff, shows on a daily basis.

Beth Medved Waller joins Rotary International and visits Rotary Clubs and service projects in Uganda

Published

on

Beth Medved Waller, President Elect of the newly chartered Rotary Club of the Northern Shenandoah Valley, “The Area ONE|ders” has just returned from Uganda, a country she has visited 7 times since December 2017 as an individual trying to make a difference but lacking the connections to maximize her efforts. Rotary now binds her with the power of 1.2 million+ like-minded members to collaborate with on projects in Africa, in Virginia and around the world. Rotarians stand united in their vision that “Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.”

This trip was Waller’s first trip to Uganda as a Rotarian.  Though she only has been a member of the service organization for approximately one month, her trip to Africa with District 7570 Governor George Karnes (of the Warren County Rotary Club) enabled her to have already accumulated years worth of unforgettable Rotarian experiences. She was embraced beyond belief at meetings of The Rotary Club of Kampala Metropolitan and the Rotary Club of Mengo and met members from more than 20 clubs throughout the trip.  During two meetings, she was invited to speak about her work with the Ugandan based non-profit she has partnered with since 2017, Light up Life Foundations. Additionally, the Warren County Rotarians attended a presentation by members of the Rotary Club of Kampala North at the development site of the future Sam Owori Rotary Vijana POA Village. The village is a vocational campus being constructed to train the next generation of Ugandans in green energy, computer technology, agriculture, plumbing, electrical skills and more.

Waller and Karnes were also blessed to be able to attend the March 31st kickoff of the enormous “Sam F. Owori Memorial Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Project” in Tororo. The late Sam Owori (of the Rotary Club of Kampala) was an internationally renowned Rotarian who was to be Rotary International President this year (prior to his unexpected tragic death).  When construction is complete, nearly 20,000 Ugandans will have a safe solar-powered municipal drinking water system and hygienic sanitation facilities. In addition, through the project nearly 40 individuals have been extensively trained to install micro-flush sanitation systems. “Benefits of the Micro-flush toilet are no smell, flies or mosquitoes.  You build it once instead of every 2 years. The Micro-flush toilet is cheaper and better than a pit latrine,” according to Walter Hughes who was also on the ground in Uganda representing District 7570. Internationally beloved Rotarian Hughes spent time sharing with Beth helpful insight from his vast experience with dozens of successful service projects all over Africa. In March, Waller’s nonprofit, WHAT MATTERS, funded a pit latrine at the school she and Light up Life Foundation constructed in the remote village of Bunyade. Had she had Hughes advice along with the power of Rotarian wisdom behind her then, she would have instead installed a more affordable and more environmentally sound micro-flush system.

As a part of the Owori Memorial Grant, one such toilet system has been installed adjacent to a maternity ward  (where 50 children per month are brought into this world).  A 1000 liter water tank will also be brought to the birthing facility that currently turns away women if they are not able to provide 200 liters of water prior to admission. When visiting the less than ideal medical facility, Waller noted a tattered paper sign taped to the wall that shares the Tororo District’s vision, “To have a healthy, productive and prosperous people living in a clean environment within 10 years.” The community is now many steps closer to fulfilling that dream thanks to Rotary International.


District Governor Karnes was the lead for the Tororo Owori Memorial Grant, a project which united the entire organization and nearly every continent in the world by raising more than $228,000. George and Rotarian James Serugo (of the Rotary Club of Kampala) worked tirelessly on this project that was identified in 2016 and has involved more than 48 Rotary Districts across the world (and over 60 clubs), ranking as the largest singular international grant to date.

Norah Owori, in her comments at the kickoff ceremony in Merekit on Sunday, March 31st, eloquently shared, “I’m very grateful for the Rotarians from around the world because they have given the people of Merekit a new relief of life. I’m especially grateful to DG George (Karnes) and Rotarian (Walter Hughes).This project was promised to my late husband by his Rotary friends when he was elevated to Rotary International President Elect. The fact that you worked so hard and made this project a reality even after Sam has passed on is a great testimony to Rotary’s service to humanity.”  Waller and Karnes were kindly included in a lovely intimate breakfast and a community lunch hosted by Mrs. Owori at her home. They were also fortunate to have been able to pay their respects at the graveside of Sam Owori and attended a beautiful service at the Owori family church.

Waller met countless friendly and inspirational Rotarians and was hosted in the home of esteemed Rotarian Sarah Odongo, of the Rotary Club of Kampala, who has pledged to be a mentor in Beth’s Rotarian work as Sarah has served in many Ugandan and Rotary International leadership capacities.  Rotarian Emmanuel Sabiti of the Rotary Club of Bunga, has kindly offered to help Beth find Light up Life Foundations a new location for the Maisha Home for Children (since they were forced to vacate their prior rental). Many other kind Rotarians have expressed an interest in working with Beth and her club in future projects.

This trip was neither Waller’s nor Karne’s first experience as the beneficiaries of Ugandan hospitality and friendship.  This visit was DG George Karne’s third trip to Merekit, the community that will benefit from the Owori Memorial Grant.  Waller was shocked when she first learned that another local citizen frequented Uganda and of Rotary’s remarkable service in what has become her “home away from home” country.  Prior to this trip, which was their first time in Africa together, she heard DG George speak of the Owori project and recorded his presentation about it at the Rotary District 7570 Conference in April.  Tears streamed down her face in anticipation of their upcoming trip as she listened to Karnes describe the project.  But even at that time she never dreamed their trip would be as heartwarming and life-changing to her as it was.  She most definitely concurs with George’s words in that presentation when he shared, “Rotary has changed my life. Having the ability to do something like this project has made a huge difference in me. Rotary makes you a better mother, a better father, a better employee or employer. It makes you a better member of your community…Rotary helps us become the people we were meant to be.”

Upon return to Virginia, Beth shared with fellow members of her club, “I feel as if we have truly become a part of a new international family of like-minded humanitarians.  I’m looking forward to being able to make more of an impact in Uganda as a Rotarian and will be immediately working to identify a partner club in the Kampala area to start developing a Rotary International Grant to benefit the children I have grown to love there. The friendly Rotarian welcome I received in Uganda has also inspired me to help to coordinate a Friendship Exchange between District 7570 and District 9211 in the near future.”  James Serugo (of the Rotary Club of Kampala) says of the Friendship Exchange Program, “Rotarians from one district visit Rotarians in another district to become friends and extend service through friendship to their communities.” Waller hopes that Rotarians and non-Rotarians alike interested in working her on Ugandan projects, or joining her on a future trip to Africa, will reach out to her through her Facebook page, Beth Medved Waller or beth@whatmattersw2.com.

Upcoming performance of Disney’s “Aladdin Jr” at Front Royal Christian School

Published

on

WHAT MATTERS Warren:

This is the third video of our talented area youth that I’ve been blessed to share this last week as the spring performance season fast approaches. I’ve been so inspired and impressed by the gifted students and their dedicated teachers who touch the lives of our youth! “Break a leg” to the dedicated kids performing at area schools!

This video highlights an upcoming performance of Disney’s “Aladdin Jr” at Front Royal Christian School.

From a Press Release:

Front Royal, Virginia – Students at Front Royal Christian School will present Aladdin live on stage for three nights: April 11 at 6pm, April 12 at 7pm, and April 13 at 6pm at 80 N. Lake Ave., Front Royal, Virginia – the New Hope Church building. Tickets are on sale now at www.FrontRoyalChristianSchool.com and at a reduced rate for a limited time only.

“This is the tenth year of FRCS presenting musicals on stage to the community,” said Lorraine Hewitt, FRCS Head of School. “The performing arts program is important to the philosophy of FRCS and it allows students to develop their creative gifts through classes such as art, chorus, theatre/improv, band, stage band, music theory, and advanced illustration.”

Thirty-six students are participating in this year’s Aladdin performance as actors, singers, and dancers. Students have attended sessions in voice and choreography, as well as nightly rehearsals to prepare for this production. In addition, there are students trained and participating in make-up, lighting, sound, and stage management.

When asked how would you describe the musical and all that goes into it, eleventh grader Colt Barham, who plays Aladdin in the musical, sums it up as “hard work that is designed to bring smiles.”

The cast will be present this Saturday at C&C Frozen Treats on Main Street, Front Royal from 1:00pm – 2:30pm and Rural King Supply Royal Plaza Shopping Center from 3:00pm – 4:00pm. Princess Jasmine, Aladdin, Genie, Magic Carpet, and more characters will be dressed in costume and make-up and available for photographs. This will be a great opportunity for children to meet their favorite Aladdin character.
