Club News
Gerald W. Brady of Bloomfield passed away on Tuesday, October 10 with his beloved wife Jane and children by his side. Gerry was the only child of Walter G. Brady and Catherine G. Gallagher, and lived most of his life in West Hartford. He graduated from Kingswood School in 1946, competed in three varsity sports, playing a key role on the School's undefeated 1945 Hall of Fame football team. He was also active in multiple club organizations. After Kingwood Gerry attended Brown University, graduating in 1950, remaining Ever True to this day. Gerry was a member of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, and in 1950 led his 75 member group to a first place finish amongst 17 competitors in the Annual Inter-fraternity Sing.
 
During his school years, Gerry worked at Burnham & Brady, Inc. a candy manufacturer in East Hartford, founded by his father in 1925. Upon graduation from Brown in 1950, Gerry joined the Connecticut Air National Guard, which was ultimately federalized during the Korean War as a part of the U.S. Air Force. Commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant, Gerry left the Air Guard after eight reserve years.
 
At night and while working full time at Burnham & Brady, Gerry studied at the University of Connecticut School of Law, graduating and passing the Bar in 1964. He then opened and acted as a principal in a law office of Brady, Willard and Alexander in East Hartford until 2005, thereafter as a solo practitioner until his retirement in 2014. Well aware of his civic duties, he served as an Assistant Corporation Counsel for the Town of East Hartford as well as later serving as Chairman of the West Hartford Town Planning and Zoning Commission from 1973 to 1978.
 
An active Rotarian, Gerry was a member of the East Hartford Chapter for over 50 years. Gerry joined the East Hartford Rotary Club in 1965, sponsored by Carl Trewella. As a founding family of St. Timothy's Church in 1961, Gerry remained active in the parish community as a benefactor while also serving as a past President of the Church Council. He initiated the Greeter's Program which continues to this day.
 
 
Following in the East Hartford Rotary tradition of  Past District Governors Ray Miller, Jack Spiegel, George Stewart, Jim Sheehan, Frank Collins, and Sue Klock, Marc Glass has been selected by District 7890 as its District Governor Nominee for the 2020-2021 Rotary year. Marc is a Past President and Paul Harris Fellow in our Club and has been extensively involved in Rotary at both the local and district levels for the past few years. He is currently serving his second term as Assistant District Governor for the Greater Hartford  area. 
 
Marc is the President of the Marc D. Glass Insurance Agency on Silver Lane in East Hartford and he and wife, Lori, live in South Windsor. Marc is looking forward to the challenge of leading our District with the help  and support of the East Hartford Rotary Club. Well done, Marc!
 

It was a beautiful day to be on the Ridge Wednesday, warm with just a few clouds in the sky. The Martins were at their usual spot checking people in and hawking raffle tickets. As the meeting got started with President Dave ringing the bell, we all sang and then listened as Dan Larson gave the invocation. He reminded us of the adversity that people in the country are facing, hurricanes and flooding in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico, the terrorist attack in Las Vegas, political wrangling over deportation, healthcare and budgets, threats to world peace. He then lightened the mood by referring to the Red Sox getting knocked out of the post season. This Yankees fan thanks Dan for ending on a happy note. He concluded by calling on all of us to do what we can to make the world a better place. 

 

Rumor was that the lunch committee had scheduled a meeting with the caterer following our gathering. This might have contributed to the excellent beef tips and rice medley that was served for lunch. The vegetables were greeted with mixed reviews. Salad and brownies rounded out the meal. As we finished eating, Art Bradbury and George Schoen led us in rousing rendition of the Welcome Song, somewhat recouping from the atrocious performance last week. Our speaker, a New Britain Rotarian himself, seemed to be impressed as he later said that our club is the best singing club that he has visited. Of course he also mentioned that we are the only club he's visited that sings, but that’s neither here nor there. Announcements followed.
