East Hartford Rotary News

For all those eagerly awaiting the arrival of spring, just a week away, today was about 50°F and pleasantly sunny.

 

President Kevin set up our recently repaired club bell and rang it promptly at 12:15 PM.  This was followed by the 23 of us present singing R-O-T-A-R-Y a bit weakly, and then Dan Larson delivering an inspiring invocation encouraging us to live with insight and purpose.

 

With no program scheduled so no presenter to go sedately to the head of the buffet line, it was every man or woman for him/her self.  Today’s meal was roast chicken pieces (dark and light), carrots and beans, and a salad of mixed greens.  Dessert could best be described as an assortment of sweets, primarily chocolate based, and again passed by our favorite waiter, Ned Lynch.

 

Though we had no program, we did have a guest, so Art Bradbury and George Schoen led us in our welcome song.  Our guest was Joe Jaconetta, an attorney in Glastonbury and member of the Rotary Club of Glastonbury, but more importantly for his visit today, he is serving as Chair of the Executive Committee of the Connecticut River Valley Chamber of Commerce.

 

President Kevin invited Joe to speak about events currently being planned by the Chamber.  Joe’s message was primarily to encourage us to support their events, which will include a duck race this spring, a fun event begun by our club and now adopted by the Chamber. This year’s duck race will be held Saturday, May 18th, and again will be on the Hockanum River here in East Hartford, from Walnut Street Bridge to Labor Field Park.  Raffle tickets go on sale March 19th.  For more details, check the CRVCC website https://www.crvchamber.org/events/details/duck-race-6580
