Dove Mountain Rotarians Stay in Touch with Bee Hive

 
Dove Mountain Rotary's signature service project is adopting Bee Hive care center. Club members had a Valentine's Day party for the residents. Shortly after, visits to the home were prohibited because of cover 19, so the club members decided to send notes and cards to the residents. Honorary Member Brigitte Hentges decided to make an Easter card for each resident.
 
Veterans Service Project
 
In March, just before the shutdown, Dove Mountain Rotarians and friends of the club served meals to homeless veterans. The meals were part of an event called Veterans Stand Down, sponsored by Veterans Serving Veterans. There were fewer participants this year than last, probably because of the emerging concern about Covid 19. Nonetheless, the volunteers found it to be a rewarding experience and were pleased to have this opportunity to serve.

 Audiology Project Brings Gift of Hearing

 
Dove Mountain Rotary wrapped up its District Grant project in April. With $6000 in club charitable fund money and another $6000 from The Rotary Foundation through the District 5500 grant program, we accomplished the following:
 
  • provided training for 3 audiology technicians
  • purchased and audiometer
  • tested 200 people for hearing loss
  • dispensed 170 hearing aids
  • adjusted 20 hearing aids
  • provided more than 500 batteries
 
At its June 6 meeting, the club members heard from audiologist Bob Jensen, who has been spearheading an audiology clinic in Guaymas, Sonora, for more than 25 years. He thanked Dove Mountain Rotarians for providing an element he had long dreamed of: sustainability. The need for hearing screenings and follow-up assistance for those with hearing aids exists throughout the coastal and rural areas of Sonora, technicians trained in this grant have planned mini-clinics every other month (on average) in local schools and nursing homes, rotating among the towns of Guaymas, Etchojoa, Navojoa, and Alamos.
