Welcome to our two new Rotary Members from PeoplesBank, West Hartford! Roma Odedra and Kris Lucke!
Adam from Harvey's Wine and Spirits sent us a check for $200. You may remember, Adam donated $1.00 from every bottle of wine that was ordered during Vines of May. And, as most of you know, Adam will be a sponsor next year for Vines of March.
The remainder of the meeting was dedicated to a discussion of a new Fall program to replace Jazz Brunch. With Tony Rodriguez's departure to Florida, have not only lost one of our significant Chairpersons, we have also lost the driving force behind the Jazz Brunch. Tony, along with Jim Killian, Hap Leabman, Steve Tessler, and Haig Sheverdian, created a wonderful and profitable event for many years and we are indebted to them.
Bennett Forrest has stepped up and offered to chair a new event to be held at Infinity Hall, Hartford. This year, the event would be the cast of Beatlemania! and be held midday on Saturday, November 7th. Details will be distributed and we can then have a clubwide vote on the proposal.
Our next meeting is Monday, July 18th at The Pond House - 12:15pm.
Come early to chat!
