What's Been Happening?

Matthew Fields


Our speaker was our own Matthew Fields. He represents Farmers Insurance and talked about Auto, Home, Commercial, and Umbrella insurance.  Most of the people have $100,000 per person and $300,000 per accident liability insurance for their cars.   Mr. Matthew feels that based on recent claims, this is not enough unless you have Umbrella insurance.  Umbrella insurance is a secondary type of liability insurance that covers your personal liability above and beyond the standard liability you have taken on your homeowner policy. Umbrella liability can cover you on multiple properties and cars depending on what coverage you select. Typical Umbrella insurance is for $1 million. Farmers also offer commercial and earth quake insurance. Workers’ compensation insurance, commonly known as workers’ comp, is insurance that covers medical expenses and a portion of lost wages for employees who become injured or ill on the job. Coverage also includes employee rehabilitation and death benefits. Mr. Fields thinks that if you ever have to use it, this is a good deal.  

Roy Ray, Executive Director of Rotary Family Youth Initiative (FYI)


Our speaker was Rotarian Roy Ray, Executive Director of Rotary Family Youth Initiative (FYI).  In many cases Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) disrupt the normal brain development process in young children.  ACEs can, if not prevented or mitigated, make children, youth, and young adults prone to experience emotional, cognitive, and behavioral difficulties for the remainder of their lives, and even reduce quality of and shorten their lives by as much as 15-20 years. 67% of the population have at least one ACE. 1/8th of the population have more than 4 ACEs. Our district has initiated this project of creating awareness of ACEs in the schools and surrounding communities.  It will be done with the help of Parents, Pastors, Principals, Police, Proprietors, Politicians, and other community Partners, assisted and facilitated by Rotarians.
