HealthWorks for Northern Virginia received a donation of N95 masks from Leesburg Daybreak Rotary Club and members Sheryl Hine of Quail Creek Promotions and Bonnie Taylor of CCS Innovations, LLC. Donations of personal protective equipment (PPE) like N95 masks are greatly appreciated since they help protect Health Center staff that continue to provide health services to the community.

Today's goes out to the Leesburg Daybreak Rotary Club and members Sheryl Hine of Quail Creek Promotions and Bonnie Taylor of CCS Innovations, LLC for their generous donation to HealthWorks. We are so thankful to everyone in the community who is helping us remain open and able to care for our 17,000+ patients.
👏 today comes to us from the Leesburg Daybreak Rotary Club, and members Sheryl Hine of Quail Creek Promotions and Bonnie Taylor of CCS Innovations, LLC who went to donate KN95 masks to HealthWorks for Northern Virginia and the County's donation center. “I’d been searching for a way to help Loudoun County during our pandemic, not as a business owner, but as a resident. When I saw Sheryl’s email about available KN95 masks, the pieces fell into place... I issued a challenge my fellow Rotarians to each purchase $100 - $200 worth of masks that we would then donate.” said Taylor.
Wishing the Leesburg Daybreak Rotary Club a tremendous thank you for the wonderful holiday party for our pediatric patients again this year! Sending a special thank you to Santa and all his elves who brought so many smiles to our patients and their families. We had so much fun celebrating, happy holidays to all!

Eric Ianson spoke and had wonderful slides with fascinating pictures of the many successful endeavors NASA is doing, had done, or is about to do. We learned about the exciting Artemis Program and the recent "skipping" re-entry into the atmosphere into the Pacific and the moon work. We learned about Dragon Fly and new nuclear fusion energy. We saw incredible pictures and learned about the James Webb and Hubble telescopes. Jet Propulsion Lab and work with Cal Tech. The Mars mission with 30 helicopter missions, using a machine intended for 5 missions! And samples being rocketed back to Earth from Mars. The trips to Neptune, the moon Titan, and other adventures. We also were enlightened into some of the practical applications to advances made through and with these incredible projects.

Fellow Rotarians and Guests,

What a great meeting today. Dr. David Goodfriend, was an incredible speaker today. We are so fortunate to have a person of his caliber running the Loudoun County Health department and a friend to the club.

If you made it today, great seeing you.

If we missed you today, we all hope all is well. Please let us know if you need anything - a ride, a visit, an errand.

The President of the club was late, and immediate past president, Dave Butler, stepped in with grace and alacrity, as you would expect. Thank you Dave.

Good News / Announcements

Joe and Gloria are home for 4 weeks, welcome back.

Newsha joined us, great to see you.

Mary Frances Forcier joined us, thanks and welcome.

Amy Ritter let us see a great article on Chix Pix, Hillary Tattersall's venture - great article.

The Holiday Celebration will be December 20th at 20 W. Market Street, Leesburg, Va - former site of Rotary for Leesburg for over 50 years. It will be from 5-7 - we will get a list of dishes to bring and share and work on the beverages.

Thank you for your leadership and making the holiday great for this family.

Dec 10, this Saturday is Smile Boxes at Loudoun County High with Interact / FBLA 9am.

Dave Jones introduced Dr. David Goodfriend.

Dr. Goodfriend spoke to us in February of 2020 as the Covid pandemic began.

He mentioned the 3 years of work and how proud he was of Loudoun's response. Loudoun did the best, well planned out and as we started with the healthiest population, we were fortunate.
He also mentioned we had lower hospitalizations and lower deaths and we had higher vaccinations.

Dr. Goodfriend mentioned 3 sayings kept him going and were relevant on his journey to help everyone.

1. from his Navy training - "Train like you fight" operations, knowing what to do and who will do it, real and ready responses

2. from ROTARY - our 4 way test!!!!!!!!
specifically fairness (to kids, schools, parents, masks, vaccines) which all leads to reflection on perspective and the hard work on mitigation.

3. The Serenity Prayer

Covid numbers are up and up after Thanksgiving.

Flu numbers are up, as is RSV which is very hard on children.

Our area is early on the uptake of most illnesses in Virginia.

Other issues are Monkey Pox and Ebola, which the Health Department is watching.

And the trauma of covid and the brittle people after challenges of loss, being alone, life changes which leads to concerns and issues with mental health.

We appreciate Dr. Goodfriends efforts to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Yours in Rotary Service,



From President Elect - DAVID JONES

Thank you everyone at Leesburg Daybreak Rotary Club. You will put big smiles on a few faces this Christmas.


We enjoyed Buddy's presentation today at our Rotary meeting.

Washington Business Journal reached out to Buddy Rizer and fellow leaders on the Power 100 List for insights on finding solace and staying happy during 2020:

"Music has always had a way of transporting me to a better headspace," Rizer said.

"While I was teleworking during Covid, I made a point of actively listening to at least one vinyl album from start to finish. Some days, it would be the Stones, some days Wilco, some days Tom Petty — but every day it was something different, and every day it brought me to a happy place."

Our Rotary Club Leesburg Daybreak Rotary Club has sponsored this holiday party for kids that are clients of Health Works in Leesburg for over 7 year now. It is one of my favorite events of the year. Loudoun County High School Interact kids support us with games and set up / clean up. We get great food and drinks. And the USMC Toys for Tots provides all the toys for the kids. It is truly a win - win - win event.

What an amazing Christmas party for the kids at HealthWorks for Northern Virginia today, complete with food, games, crafts and toys. The kids were so excited to see Santa (aka Tony Howard) who once again was the highlight of the day!
