Today's speaker was Gina Rossi from French Chiropractic and Wellness Center.  She talked about the benefits of receiving chiropractic care, and the prevalence rates of back and neck pain in everyone's lifetime (80% and 1 in 3, respectively).  As the average life expectancy increases (from in the 40s in the early 1900s to an estimated 100 years or more in the next generation or two).  About 50% of mobility is lost at the age of 50, which makes taking care of your back and your body very important, in terms of maintaining as much mobility in later life as possible.  French Chiropractic and Wellness Center is having an Open House this Thursday, April 16th, from 1:30 to 3:30 - all are invited to come and see the office, meet the doctors, and find out what chiropractic care is about.  Their address is 6166 North Ridge Road, in Madison, and more information can be found on their website:


With Identity Theft and "data mining" on the internet such a problem, it is best if we keep your name, home address, phone numbers, including cell numbers, and other personal information safe from those surfing the internet for information.  However, your trusted fellow Painesville Rotarians might want to contact you or check on the name of your spouse they just can't seem to remember now.  So with a password they can easily find those things out.

We are just trying to find the balance between easy information for you and hard to get information from those you don't want to have your personal information.

P.S. You can get and print a listing of all Rotarians and their contact info anytime you want (and you know it is updated to the latest we have), but sorry you can't forward a contact list from the bottom of the eBulletin (and therefore can't have it forwarded all over the internet).


Rotary Park (formerly called North Park) was renamed in 1996 after the local Painesville Rotary Club donated thousands of dollars and many hours of labor to revitalize and renovate this small neighborhood park. The park offers a ball diamond that is used by several youth leagues for practices. It also has a new play structure purchased with funds from the state Natureworks grant program. This 4 1/2 acre park is located off Hine Avenue.
