East Hartford Rotary News
When I looked out my window this morning I saw a Winter Wonderland – Snow on the trees, sidewalks and roads.  When I checked my computer a frantic message from President Bob who was stuck in the snow in Tolland - “What do I do? Do we hold the meeting?” I replied that the snow had stopped, and it looked OK. The best advice came from Lunch Master Sayre – “Hold the meeting or you’re stuck with 24 chicken lunches”.  ‘Nuf said, we held the meeting at the Ridge with the sun out, parking lot plowed, and a very Spring like afternoon.  The big question – “Will we have a quorum for the Annual Meeting?”  With today’s membership we need 14 live bodies, a far cry from day’s long past!  Counting members as they paid George, we had our Quorum by Noon!
 
President Bob called us together around 12:15 and we sang, Pledged and were uplifted with a thoughtful Invocation from Dan Larson who talked about our common bond, our commitment to the goals and purposes of Rotary, and to recognize and share our abundance.  With that message we were dismissed to share the abundance of our lunch – roast chicken, corn, salad, and Ned’s cookies! Due to time constraints, we changed our format and took care of some of our ritual in a different order.  LaToya, the Ridge attendant, was called up to receive her Christmas gratuity.  Following that Sgt. At Arms Jack Sayre rushed through a series of fines levied upon those who liked or disliked his ugly Christmas sweater – negatives won out!  A new first – Steve Jacoby paid for being early! The big catch of the day came from Dan Larson who was celebrating (for the 3rd time today) his 70th birthday, and 48 years of wedded bliss. He sure had to pay dearly as he forced us to listen to Jim Watts sing Happy Birthday to him. Jack said he hit up every member in attendance – he deserves to be a permanent shakedown artist!
