SEMI-ANNUAL UPDATE OF "RIPPLES': This update contains two items that should be noted: (1) MARA WASBURN's last name is not spelled correctly in the Scholarship & Citizenship and Budget Committees listings - there is no "H' in MARA’s last name; and (2) Under the masthead of "Ripples' you will find the Club's newly registered "Rotary Website Address' - - www.lafayetterotary.org. This facet of the Board of Directors efforts to keep members and other clubs informed of our Club's activities is a part of the Public Relations Committee, GORDON KINGMA, Chair, with CHRIS FUNK (CHRIS) spearheading and maintaining the recent issues you may have seen on the web. CHRIS hopes to make each week's "Ripples” a part of the web.

PAUL ZIEMER introduced Dr. Thomas Templin (Dr. Templin) who told about Thomas Templin the creation of the A. H. Ismail Fitness and Nutrition Research and Education Center (Center), named in honor of Professor A. H. Ismail, spouse of MARGERY ISMAIL, who lost a vigorous battle with cancer in 1984. The Center is a joint effort by the Departments of Health, Kinesiology, and Leisure Studies (HKLS), School of Liberal Arts, and Foods and Nutrition (F&N), School of Consumer and Family Sciences, to share an exciting field of research on the effects of exercise and nutrition on health, and on the consequences of health behaviors on mortality and morbidity. Dr. Templin then introduced Donna Hird, Director of the Center, who noted: Center is located in the basement of Lambert Fieldhouse and Gymnasium, and to be open April 1999; Center will be a premiere research/education facility; approximately 2,000 sq. ft. will appear similar to a physical fitness club and the balance of the space to be a testing area and offices for counselors; will get back to looking at the "Adult Fitness Program', started by Professor Ismail, which has served participants over the years - mainly older participants; functions as a clinical laboratory for HKLS and F&N students who are almost all service oriented; and will bring people in for students to work with as a part of their training and research work.
