As greeter you have several duties. You need to arrive about 10 minutes early. It is your job to greet people, help them find their badges and sell them a ticket if they wish to participate. The money collected must be divided by the Greeters equally–half goes to the Current Club Treasurer for the social committee and
half goes to the Club President along with the bucket of tickets. Greeter duties now include handing out the volunteer cards to
everyone as they come in the door. They will still be collected in the bucket with the badges or can be submitted to the treasurer. Be there by 11:45 and call somebody to substitute for you if you can’t be there.

|HEARING LOSS DOES WHAT?|
Hearing loss affects people differently, and unless you experience it day to day, you may not even realize how much of an impact it can have in every aspect of your life.Our recipients shared their personal testimonies of how hearing loss changed their lives in four critical ways. Here’s what they had to say!
Safety“Hearing aids will help me with when I’m walking. It will allow me to hear cars coming. I was hit by a car last year because they didn’t see me, and I didn’t hear them coming. I was hurt pretty badly, and I don’t want it to happen again.” – Michael.Exhaustion
“Often times, I found myself saying “what” several times. I would feel bad and smile, or pretend I knew what they were saying. I would often feel drained and exhausted by the end of the day. My first audiologist pointed out that it was likely due to exerting so much energy trying to listen and understand.” – JamesFamily
“I have a wife of 36 years, three boys and a daughter that I love dearly. I love having my family around, but since my hearing has gotten so bad. I don’t participate in conversations as much, because I don’t understand a lot of what they say.” – CliffordMusic
“I used to play piano, but I have had strokes and seizures, so I am learning all over again. But without hearing good, it’s hard to hear the piano.” – Mary
Can you relate? Can you imagine not hearing your loved ones laugh? Or feeling fatigued from trying to have a simple conversation? Millions of people experience these struggles daily, but they don’t have to.
