East Hartford Rotarians Enjoy District 7890 Conference

PDG and PP Sue Klock was awarded Rotary's highest honor, The Service Above Self Award. This is given to 150 Rotarians world wide to recognize devotion to Rotary in all its Avenues of Service. A significant honor and well deserved.

President Marc Glass receives two awards on behalf of our Club, the 2015-2016 Presidential  Citation, Gold Level; and the District Participation Award recognizing East Hartford's active involvement in District activities and events.

 
 
 
Our club's district grant project this year involved refurbishing the family homeless shelter in East Hartford. Rotarian Michael Kerrigan, Director of the local YMCA, took the lead on organizing the work for the project. Through meetings with the shelter manager, our club learned that the shelter needed painting and minor carpentry repairs, and hoped for a new washer and dryer and flooring. Our Rotary club had asked for $3000 in district grant funds and added an additional $1500 of our own money, giving us a total budget of $4500 for this project.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Rotary International Story Links
Member Spotlight: The book on Brad Rubini
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian When Brad Rubini was reading a bedtime story to his seven-year-old daughter, Claire, she asked him why he was reading the words wrong. “I’m dyslexic, so I thought I was reading the words right,” recalls Rubini, a past president of the Rotary Club of Toledo, Ohio. After he explained his problem, she began to read to him on most nights instead. “She was a voracious reader and storyteller. She was always telling stories, even when she was a toddler,” he says. Three years later, while Claire was away at summer camp, she died unexpectedly as a result of a...
Health: Survival of the Fitbittest
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian In the seven days from 7 through 13 March, I took precisely 84,250 steps. This amounted to 39.85 miles. I also climbed 288 floors and burned 22,055 calories. I’m fairly certain that you, gentle readers, could not care less about those statistics. Unless, of course, you’re one of the millions of gentle readers who have joined America’s fitness self-surveillance movement by strapping a tracking device to your wrist. In which case, you are probably pretty darned impressed by my stats. I should therefore add a few crucial caveats. Caveat No. 1: That week...
John Germ: Champion of Chattanooga
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian Just before John Germ dropped by, Rick Youngblood took a deep breath. “You want to match his energy,” he says, “but he makes it hard to keep up.” Youngblood is the president and CEO of Blood Assurance, a regional blood bank in Chattanooga, Tenn., that Germ helped found in 1972. After his visit with Youngblood, Germ strode between mountains of empty bottles and cans at Chattanooga’s John F. Germ Recycling Center at Orange Grove, which he designed, before he drove to a construction site and popped a cork to dedicate a Miracle League field where special...
