On Tuesday, September 22, Rotary Club of Hattiesburg welcomed Mr. James Moore as our speaker and Mr. Michael Dixon of the Pinebelt Foundation as our guests. Mr. Moore shared the deeply personal story of his son Jeffrey's long battle and heartbreaking fall to opiate addiction. At the conclusion of Mr. Moore's presentation, Hattiesburg Club President, Mark Killingsworth, presented Mr. Moore with a $1,000 contribution to Jeffrey's Fund which is managed locally by the Pinebelt Foundation in Hattiesburg, MS. 
 
In addition to ensuring all first responders in Hattiesburg are equipped with the NARCAN® (a lifesaving drug which counteracts opiate overdose), he has been a tireless advocate for those struggling with addiction and their families. Mr. Moore's primary goals continue to be minimizing the stigma that shrouds drug addiction and spreading the message that "addiction is an illness, not a moral failing." 
 
President Mark Killingsworth presided over today’s meeting. Guest, Michael Dixon, provided the invocation and Mark Killingsworth provided the Pledge of Allegiance. The meeting was held at the Holiday Inn North.  
 
Mark thanked those who helped with today’s meeting. He also announced that Rotarian Chris Dunkley lost his 20-year-old son recently. The club will be sending condolences. Denny Bubrig introduced his guest, Chris Pfalzgraf. Chris is a prospective member.
