An elderly wife calls 911.  Her husband has fallen and she can't lift him.  When the paramedics arrive, they notice the home is in disarray.  This couple needs help beyond the immediate assistance to lift the husband off the floor.  Jesse Ebersole, Fire Department Captain, presented the community paramedicine program-- the first in the State.  A team of paramedics, physicians, and social service providers identify and assist underutilizers of the healthcare system, particularly elderly, to connect them with services and prevent more serious injuries or sickness.  The team also regularly strolls through homeless camps to tend to wounds and other needs.  They use a computer program to identify frequent 911 callers and assess their needs.  When they are called to a home and notice potential fall hazards, they perform an assessment and provide preventive aids such as slip-resistant mats or shower chairs.  The goal of the community paramedicine program is to save overall healthcare costs by proactively preventing people from using the emergency care system as their primary care.
A once boring and lifeless median in downtown Hilo now thrives with the fruits of the natural farming method.  Drake Weinert, a farmer and teacher, explained how natural farming creates an environment favorable to promote beneficial fungus and microbes. The microbes create the fertility.
Co-owner of the Grand Naniloa, Ed Bushor, had never been to Hilo.  He has since fallen in love with Hilo as a place more authentic than anywhere he has been.  His business plans are predicated on this heart for this place.
Yoga is the "union of body, mind, spirit".  Jennifer Weinert, a registered yoga instructor, explained the benefits of yoga.  Purna yoga combines the poses (asanas) with breathing, meditation, and nutrition.

Chief Paul Ferreira was named to the Police Chief’s position by the Hawaii County Police Commission on December 8, 2016, assuming the role on December 30, 2016.  He chose Kenneth Bugado, Jr. as his Deputy Police Chief.  We were honored to have them introduce themselves to our Club.  The Police Chief and Deputy are honorary members of the RCHB.  We offered our club as a source of assistance.
