Krewe of Kingfish Presents Program at Recent Rotary Meeting

It was Ash Wednesday, the day following Fat Tuesday (or Mardi Gras) when the Rotary Club of Winnfield heard a presentation on the efforts of the local Krewe of Kingfish to keep the spirit of Mardi Gras alive and well here in this north Louisiana community.

Rotarian Jane Purser had the program and it was she and her husband Don who chaired the committee that first brought Mardi Gras and the Krewe of Kingfish to Winnfield in 1993. That was the year that the city celebrated the 100th birthday of hometown celebrity Huey P. Long. Fellow Rotarian Samantha Kelly who now serves on the Krewe of Kingfish brought the presentation to the club.

Central Management’s Rockstars Commitment Helps Staff Meet Rising Customer Expectations

Resident and family expectations have changed significantly in the nursing home industry over the past several decades and Winn-based Central Management continues to be a leader among Louisiana’s nursing facilities in adapting to meet those expectations.

Rotarian Teddy Price, Central Management’s CEO, brought several administrators to the Feb. 22 meeting of the Rotary Club of Winnfield for a program on the “Rockstars” program, one tool they are employing to encourage staffers to meet the changing expectations.

The length of stay of nursing facility residents is considerably shorter than it was 20 years ago. Then, the nursing home was often the final residence for a patient before they died. Now, with hospital stays being much shorter, rehabilitation in nursing facilities plays a much larger role. Customers are generally coming in younger and healthier than before. Last year, 7 in 10 transitioned back home with the completion of therapy.

Johnson Recent Guest Speaker at Rotary Meeting

The name has changed through the years but its commitment to the young workforce in our area has remained consistent. The Huey P. Long Memorial Trade School came into law during Louisiana’s 1938 legislative session and opened its doors on South Jones Street in October 1939. In 1970 the name changed to Vocational School and 20 years later to Technical Institution. In 1995 it was Louisiana Technical College. In September 2010, the school broke ground on its new $12 million campus just north of Winnfield Senior High School on Hwy 167.

Former District Leader Tells of Rotary History at Recent Meeting

Many service organizations feature weekly meeting speakers who address a range of topics other than those of the organization itself. The Rotary Club of Winnfield is one but recently heard from a speaker who told local members a little of the history of Rotary. Former district governor Pamela Stewart of Ruston who was here on Feb. 8 injected a number of quiz questions and the answers she received verified that much of her information was new to many. Most could recall that Paul Harris of Chicago with Rotary’s founder. But the trail ran cold beyond that.
