East Hartford Rotary News

At this time, of the year, we usually get a fall-like crisp dry sunny cool day. Not today. It almost felt like a humid summer day. Twenty-three of us gathered today for our lunch meeting at the Ridge. As most of you know, we are back at the Ridge for all meetings, and as before, these all will be lunch meetings. Our trial evening meetings at Goodwin did not bring the desired results.

 

After the Rotary Song and the Pledge-of-Allegiance, President Kevin was looking around the room for the designated person who was supposed to deliver the invocation. It was a no show, so President Kevin asked for anyone to step forward to fill the opening. Seeing none, he adlibbed Rotary’s Motto of Friendship and reminded us to remember the folks who might be affected by the upcoming Category IV Hurricane Michael.

 

Our much-improved lunch consisted of rice (yes rice again), bowtie pasta, mixed vegetable, sliced ham in raisin sauce, chicken cacciatore, rolls and salad. Dessert again was cookies.

 

It was nice to see Doug Willett, recovered from his recent illness. He was accompanied by his wife, Diane, whom he introduced as “my lovely wife of 52 years and my current nurse”.  Although they declined the Welcome Song, President Kevin, at the end of the meeting, bestowed upon them the Welcome Song anyway since they are heading to Florida for the winter and might not get a chance to hear the heartfelt rendering from Art and George for a while.

 

The recent merger of People’s and Farmington banks have turned President Kevin’s life upside down. But he was glad to keep his job. Others from the 11 branches of Farmington Bank that will be closed might not be so lucky.

 

Engaging with Rotary to enhance your membership experience
We’re celebrating our members and their clubs — and all the good they do around the world — during Membership and New Club Development Month in August.

One way you can celebrate your membership is by getting involved in the many activities and programs available to you as a member of the Rotary family. Everyone’s reason for joining Rotary is different, but members stay because of the value it adds to their lives. Through the friends we make and the lives we change, Rotary offers us opportunities to engage with a global community and make a positive difference.

Here are some ways you can engage with Rotary to enhance your membership experience.
 
Make new friends
 
 
Take your projects to the next level
  • Collaborate with experts from a Rotarian Action Group to help ensure your service projects have a lasting impact.
  • Sponsor a Rotary Community Corps(RCC) to get members of your community involved in making a difference. RCC members plan and carry out projects in their communities and support local Rotary club projects, but they are not members of a Rotary club.
  • Work with your district community, international, and vocational service chairs to boost your service efforts.
