        Safety    

You’re hot, then you’re cold... sound familiar? Hopefully not. Hypothermia and hyperthermia are two extreme,
but equally concerning, states of temperature loss or gain. Hypothermia occurs when you lose more heat than 
your body can produce and you feel very cold. Hyperthermia occurs when your body produces more heat
than it can lose. The elderly are the most vulnerable to experiencing these extremes in temperature, as they have
a reduced ability to adjust to colder, or hotter temperatures.
Hypothermia may occur if you are exposed to cold temperatures or a cold, wet, windy environment for a 
long amount of time. Getting drenched in the rain on a cold, windy day, and not drying off, for example, may
lead to hypothermia. However, hypothermia may also occur if you aren’t wearing enough warm 
clothing on a cold day. The following symptoms of hypothermia include:

Shivering
Stumbling, mumbling, grumbling (yes, really)
Slurred speech
Extremely slow breathing rate
 Skin that is cold and pale
Feeling fatigued or lethargic

List adapted from Hypothermia (link is external) from the Mayo Clinic.

Complications of hypothermia may include getting frostbite (and subsequent loss of limbs) or coma.
If you or someone you know may be suffering from hypothermia, immediately contact a health care
provider or call 911. Keep the affected person warm, dry, and indoors while waiting for medical help.
To prevent hypothermia, it is helpful to stay warm and dry in cold weather and avoid
excessive alcohol consumption. In addition:

  • Wear a hat or other protective clothing to prevent body heat
  •  from escaping your head, neck, and face.
  • Wear mittens, instead of gloves.
  • Wear layers (preferably the loose-fitting, lightweight kind).
  • Wear outer layers made of tightly-woven, water-repellant material to protect against the
  •  wind. Inner layers made of wool, silk, or polypropylene hold more body heat.
  • Stay as dry as you possibly can. This means avoiding activities that would cause you
  •  to sweat a lot and being aware of snow entering mittens or boots.

Janurary Mystery Person
Kathy Wynn
New for 2018, now that everyone is in the habit of Hugging and Shaking hands
we are going to have a designated Hugger & Shaker at every Get-Together,
Our February Hugger & Shaker will be Mary Lou Stamm, In the past the Mystery
Person was the 5th Hug or Shake, now it is up to the Hugger or Shaker to decide
what he or she wants for a Mystery Person Honor, it could still be a predetermined number
 like in the past or something new like the tallest or shortest hugger or shaker, or who
smelled the best, who has the newest or oldest ride, who has the best hug or handshake,
who traveled the farthest to the get-together, these are just ideas the monthly hugger &
 shaker can do whatever they want. Each month we will have a new hugger & shaker
 you will have to read the newsletter to find out who they are.
The new GWRRA MOTTO is participate, participate, participate....

This space is reserved for any announcements ( children getting married, new grandchildren,
prayers for someone who is ill, anniversary celebrations, retirement partys, etc.)

With over 5,700 locations, visiting a different Dairy Queen Restaurant
every day would take you 15 YEARS! (BETTER GET GOING)
