This week we were joined by Dr. Mike Driscol, as a guest of Bill. Dr. Driscol is running for House District 74. David and Reno from the Circle K were also here.

Keith reminded us that there is no Circle K meeting this week, but they are getting together in the Prospector at noon on Saturday. They will be selling baked goods at our meeting next week. The Builder's Club Easter Egg dying has been cancelled due to a funeral. Debbie will look into getting a date in May for the club to visit the Center for some activity instead. Key Club is meeting Thursday at noon.

Dave Curry recognized Steve Reynolds for the Club's Diamond Zeller Award for support to the EliMiNaTe project.

We also have a brief emergency board meeting immediately after the meeting.

Cathy then introduced our speaker, Jessica Rosa from the Butte High School Speech and Debate Team. Jessica told us about speech and debate, and how much influence Butte has had on the Speech organization throughout the state. Several awards issued each year are named after Butte competitors or coaches.

Jessica then introduced Gavin, who performed his SDZ Apocalypse speech and performance. SDZ stands for Sleep Deprivation Zombie. 70 million adults in the US have a sleep disorder. Over the last 40 years, the amount of sleep adults receive has decreased by an average of 2 hours per night. And there are 1,500 fatalities per year that can be linked directly to sleep deprivation. To help address this issue you should tone down your light intake at least 30 minutes before going to bed - particularly computer, phone, tablet, and television screens; generally calm down; reduce or eliminate caffeine intake after noon; and sleep in a dark, cool place.

The Butte High Speech and Debate team has some members attending the National Forensics League tournament in Kansas City this June and are looking for additional funding to cover the expenses. If you are able to make a donation, please contact Cathy for more information.
