Welcome to the Rotary Club of East Hartford
 
Club News

Another great Winter’s day, but with a much different forecast than last week!  Last week we braced for a Winter storm and record sub-zero temperatures, but we now look forward to, perhaps, record January high temperatures and much rain.  What a difference a week makes. Our entrance to the Ridge was somewhat dampened because the Empress wasn’t at her assigned seat which was ably filled by Hubby, Happy Jack.  The Empress was fighting a flu like issue and was not up to dealing with a bunch of cranky Rotarians!  We wish you a speedy get well. In her absence Happy Jack was able to sell only 21 lunch tickets!  Come on, folks, we’ve got to make our guarantee of 30 live and active bodies.

 

President Dave, gavel in hand, rang the bell right on time and we sang, pledged, and took in today’s Invocation thoughtfully delivered by Jack Sayre.  As usual, the rush to the buffet table began.  What we found was something this writer couldn’t quite figure out.  Was it chicken stew, chicken and tortellini, or chicken casserole?  I couldn’t find consensus among those at our table. Joining the mystery dish were ample mixed vegetables, rolls and salad.  In spite of the unknown, it was quite tasty when paired with the cookie and brownie dessert offerings.

 

 
The East Hartford Rotary Club deserves special recognition for its generous support of the Holiday Adopt-A-Family Program. Our Club budgeted $ $2,200 to support two families identified to us by the Town of East Hartford's Social Services Department.  There were a total of 11 people.  Club members gave us another $626 by passing around an envelope or through the notice sent via ClubRunner.  And two members donated the cost of Thanksgiving dinners ($200).

We provided $100 to each family for food on Thanksgiving and again at Christmas.  We then spent $2,582.47 on gifts.  We had a balance of $243.53 because some donations came in after we had delivered.  That
money will go into our Charitable Fund.

Many thanks to the Elves who worked on this project:  Bob Buettner,Marc Glass, Kevin Kickery, Jack & Mary Martin, Bill Saunders, and Alex Wisz.

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
