Welcome to the Rotary Club of East Hartford
 
Club News
If you are high school senior who lives in East Hartford and you are planning to attend college, you are eligible to apply for a scholarship funded by the Rotary Club of East Hartford. Major consideration is given to students who best exemplify the Rotary motto "Service Above Self."  You can download the application form at this link or by clicking the "Club Documents" link on the menu bar. The deadline for returning the completed application to your school's guidance department is April 12, 2017. 
 
The East Hartford Rotary Club donated $3,200 to the town’s Police Department to purchase four “active shooter kits” for school resource officers assigned to East Hartford High School and East Hartford Middle School. The donation, which was made on the December anniversary of the Sandy Hook shooting, is being used to prepare each of the school’s four officers in the unlikely event of a school shooting there. Each of the kits contains a plated ballistic vest and Kevlar helmet, and additional extension gear for use by a school resource officer if needed. Each kit would normally cost the department $800. The EHPD reached out to the Rotary Club for assistance knowing that the request for these kits would have to wait an additional budget year before it might be filled by the Town. The Board Members gave their full support to the decision to fund this important request to assist the people who risk their lives daily in service to our community.
 
President Bill Saunders presented the check to Chief of Police Scott Sansom; many members of the club’s Board of Directors and Mayor LeClerc were also on hand for the check presentation.  Chief Scott Sansom said of the resource officers, “They are in the schools nurturing relationships, teaching, and working with kids in programs. But they are also armed police officers.” While everyone hopes these kits will never need to be used, they will be stored at the schools in case they are needed during an emergency situation.
On a gray Sunday morning at the beginning of October, East Hartford families began lining up outside the Burlington Coat factory at 7:30 a.m. in happy anticipation of being part of our club's "Koats for Kids" campaign. Once again our club worked with East Hartford's Department of Social Services and the Burlington Coat Factory to help provide new winter coats to children. 
The Town identified the children in need and issued vouchers to them. Burlington Coat Factory generously gave everyone a 15% discount on the price of the coats. Children were able to shop and select the perfect winter coat for their needs.
At the end of the morning, 84 very happy East Hartford children went home knowing they would be warm this winter. The project was funded with a district grant.
