Paul Harris Recipients  Laura Floyd, Anwar Hossain and Wes Willett

 
Our erstwhile President Bob is committed to providing us as much information as quickly as possible. And I hate being redundant. So, our High Gear this week is being written mostly by the President himself. I will lightly edit it, sum up the Paul Harris presentation and add a few pictures. Here we go:
Face to Face Finally 
Bob: “We had our first in person meeting since March on the porch of the East Hartford Golf Club. It got off to a rocky start. The hostess was 40 minutes late, so nothing was set up. The Wi-Fi connection was terrible. Both Wes and I could not stay connected until about 9:15 and by then I think many of you no longer tried to attend by Zoom.  Wes finally got his hot spot on his phone and my iPad stayed connected.”
 
 
 Lots going on despite the challenges 
Bob: Project updates:
  • Cards to residents at Riverside.  Work in progress. Working with admissions directors to get names.
  • Books for Library program.   Still working on it.
  • Coats for Kids.  We did receive the District Grant and now Dick McCarthy is working with town Social Services to iron out distribution and supplier issues.
  • Neal Cunningham and Wes are looking at various fund raisers.
  • The golf tournament planning is progressing. The first round of letters “Save the Date” are out.
  • Working with Goodwin University on possible use of a meeting room with WIFI for future in-person meetings.
  • Laura Floyd. at the Y is looking for Volunteers to read to children. Monday at 6 p.m. via Zoom.  if interested contact her at the Y.
  • Chickie Amberg's backyard pizza party is Aug 21, a Friday.  Contact Ceil Collins to let her know if you are coming   Lots of space to distance.   Bring your own drinks and lawn chairs.
 
AND again, thank you all for the Gift Card. My granddaughter is going to show me how to spend it tonight. She wants a commission.
