Welcome to the Rotary Club of East Hartford
 
Club News

Valentine’s Day at the Ridge was windy and cloudy, but a little warmer than normal. Perhaps this contributed to all the donations for the holiday to the Sgt. At Arms. We all gathered in the meeting room and our President rang the bell to start the meeting.

 

 

 

 

A decent rendition of the Rotary Song was sung, and we recited the pledge. Alex Wisz gave the invocation, encouraging us all to treat those in our lives according to the 4 Way Test. We then filed in and were served a lunch of mashed potatoes, pork slices in gravy, string beans and a roll. We also had salad available. Dessert was the typical Big Y cookie plate, but there was a delicious cake provided by Peter Klock in celebration of Sue Klock’s birthday.

 

After we ate, President Dave rang the bell to start the meeting. Guests were introduced. Vincent Crawford introduced Sudheer who was visiting from Wisconsin, accompanied by Rotarian David Sayam who was visiting from India. Dan Larson then introduced Patrick Kennedy from the Manchester club. He is a past president for both the South Windsor club and the Manchester club. An attempt was made to recruit him to be a President for East Hartford also, but he wasn’t having any of it. George Schoen and Art Bradbury led us in the Welcome song.

 

 

Thanks to the remarkable generosity of the late Ms. Gioconda McGettigan, the East Hartford Rotary Scholarship Fund has increased by $100,000. Ms. McGettigan was a client of our late Rotarian brother, Bill Leone, who helped her compile her will and distribute her estate. Ms. McGettigan was originally from Pennslyvania before settling in East Hartford. 

Upon completing probate, her estate distributed bequests to several charities she supported, including libraries, schools and churches. She also made gifts to her neighbor and the neighbor's children, who kept an eye on her welfare.

As a result of her gift to East Hartford Rotary, our ability to award scholarships to graduates of our local high schools will be greatly enhanced. A wonderful and welcome gift in the Holiday season, ind
