West Hartford Rotary Club

January 14, 2019 Luncheon Meeting

1. Last week’s meeting was a Club Assembly. We discussed the Vines of March which is to be held on March 9, 2019. It is only 50 days away and we need dedicated members to volunteer to help with putting together auction items, finding restaurants to donate food and sponsors. Time is of the essence since we need to put together a program brochure for the event which names the companies and/or people who have donated.

2. We have put together a for use in solicitation of sponsors, food donations and auction items. Patricia Kiely is setting up a meeting with the University of Saint Joseph to apprise them of our plans and needs for this event on March 9.

3. Ann Leabman and Tony Rodriguez again reminded our members of the January 22, 2019 Blood Drive to be held at the Town Hall from 1:30 to 5:00 pm.

4. We discussed involving the University of Hartford Rotaract in setting up a plan for the Outreach Program at the University. Hopefully it will both attract students to join in our efforts to help the needy by donating free meals.

5. We need to contribute to the Polio-Plus and Rotary Foundation in order to meet the District goals for this year (almost $10,000). Eileen is gratefully accepting donations large and small to help in this endeavor.

REMINDER - no meeting on Monday, January 21st!
