Important: BrewFest Venue Change

Brewfest is still March 3. Because Olympia is closing Jan. 31, the venue has moved to the LaBelle Golf Club. We thank committee members for having plans in place. John Scambler explained that the capacity is now 425, not 550, therefore revenues will be impacted. Ideas for additional fundraising can be forwarded to Brewfest committee members or to President Sarah B.

The War on the Opioid Epidemic:

Waukesha County’s plan to reduce the number of opioid overdose deaths in the county focuses on these strategies:

  • Scanning the county to identify risk and protective factors for all county residents
  • Offering free trainings open to all county residents on the administration of naloxone, a drug that can reverse an opioid overdose
  • Distributing free kits containing naloxone to county residents who express interest
  • Opiate overdose prevention education sessions in the county
  • Reaching out to opioid users who have experienced an overdose and providing support through the county crisis system

This work plan was announced in May 2017. It is funded by a grant provided by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. The state received a grant from the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration to prevent prescription drug/opioid overdose related deaths.

In line with the county’s efforts, Rotarians received free naloxone training Monday, learning how to identify an opioid overdose and how to administer Naloxone, a life-saving antidote (above). Participants were provided with one free dose of Naloxone to use in case of an emergency. County employees described Your Choice overdose prevention and Narcan, what it does and does not do. Rotarians learned about increased risk factors, signs of opioid overdose, how to manage an overdose, opioid types and signs of use. Visit www.yourchoice-live.org or call 262-367-9901 to learn more.
