East Hartford Rotary News
There were sixteen participants in the meeting, including our guest speaker. Much of the pre-meeting conversation focused on prizes for the golf tournament. President Sue Klock rang the bell at 12 noon to begin the meeting. She then led us in the Pledge of Allegiance. Ruth Sheehan then gave an inspirational invocation on how Rotary inspires us.
 
There were no caring moments this week.
 
 Sue was able to make sure that George Schoen received his newest Paul Harris recognition pin (Paul Harris plus three).
 
 GUEST SPEAKER Rick Lawrence
 
Sue introduced today’s guest speaker, Rick Lawrence. Rick is an active member of the Manchester Rotary Club. Rick works with a group that provides water to remote villages in Guatemala. Rich showed us a video which showed how the water system is implemented and how it works to provide the villages with clean water using solar panels. The East Hartford Rotary Club has been supporting Rick in his efforts for many years, going back to the 2000’s. Rick said that donations are still needed.

District Governor’s message Re. The Rotary Foundation
 
WHAT IS A MAJOR DONOR AND ARCH KLUMPH SOCIETY MEMBER?
 
Major Donor – The Rotary Foundation recognizes individuals or couples whose combined giving reaches US$10,000, regardless of the gift designation. This recognition level can be achieved only through personal contributions. Major donors may elect to receive a crystal recognition piece and pin(s) commemorating the gift at each new recognition level. Since Rotary’s Major Donor recognition began, there have been over $30,000 Major Donors.
 
Arch Klumph Society – Donors whose cumulative gifts total US$250,000 or more are recognized as Arch Klumph Society members. Recognition includes an induction ceremony and your picture and biography in the Arc Klumph Society interactive gallery at the Rotary International Headquarters in Evanston, Illinois, USA. Members also receive invitations to society events, along with membership pins and crystals that commemorate their giving level. Since the society’s creation in 2004, there have been over seven hundred Arch Klumph Society Members.
 
Check out WHY the Rotary Foundation named this group after Arch C. Klumph.
 
That is all for this week. I wish everybody a happy and joyous weekend!
