East Hartford Rotary News

After the rainy Tuesday yesterday, which also was the midterm voting day, today was just the opposite, a bright sunny fall day with many trees around the Ridge still in full color. Twenty-five Rotarians along with five guests made the room look much fuller than normal. President Kevin struck the bell as gently as he could, to not to leave a constant ringing in Jack Sayer’s ears who was sitting directly in front of the bell. The Rotary Song was sung with gusto, and the Pledge-of-Allegiance recited with a strong reverence in front of our flag. Larry Hangland came to the podium to deliver the invocation. The theme, appropriately, was expressing thanks that the election was over, advising us to move on with our lives and keep the Four-Way-Test as our moral compass.

Lunch consisted of rice, baked chicken, steamed mixed vegetables, a shrimp dish which looked like soupy chowder with red tomato slices poking their heads, and if one dug deep enough into the bottom of the dish, a few dime size shrimps that some lucky ones among us were able to land on the plate. The usual dinner rolls and mixed salad were laid out at their usual places. Dessert consisted of sliced blueberry and honey cakes.

President Kevin once again used restraint in ringing the bell to restart the meeting earlier than normal because our guest speaker was supposed to leave at 1:15 PM. Our guests Phil Davis, Cassi Steenblok, John Mazzacatto, John Mitchell along with our guest speaker Dean Cornelio were enthusiastically serenaded by Art Bradbury and George Schoen with the Welcome Song. John Mitchell provided a great tribute to our long time Rotarian George Agnelli who passed way last week.

Participants in the East Hartford Rotary Club’s Annual “Coats for Kids” Program lined up outside the Burlington Store on Silver Lane early Sunday morning on October 14 to receive their new winter coats. These coats will keep them warm throughout the season.
 
This year marks a 10-year anniversary since the Rotary Club has been sponsoring the “Coats for Kids” program. Working in partnership with the Town’s Social Services Department, the Rotary provides the funding for prescreened participants between the ages of 5-12 to select a new winter coat at the Burlington Store every fall.
 
There is a great partnership with the East Hartford Rotary and Burlington Stores, which opens an hour early for this event to allow the participants and their parents come in and select a new winter coat. This year over 100 children were selected to participate. If the cool temperatures we are seeing now are any indication of the season to come, these coats will get a lot of wear. Once their coat selections were completed, the children were treated to donut holes compliments of Burlington Stores. Thank you everyone who participated in the program this year!
