March is shaping up to be a busy membership induction month in our District as at least 6 Clubs have inducted (11) new members in the past 2 weeks.
Trumbull Rotary inducted (2) new members, Newtown Rotary inducted (2) last Monday, Bridgeport Rotary inducted (4) last Tuesday, Old Saybrook Rotary inducted (1) on Wednesday while both New London Rotary and Madison Rotary inducted (1) each on Thursday.
We just received our February Membership Report from Rotary International which shows us up 28 members year to date (since July 1, 2013). Add to it these 11 and that puts us up +37 since July 1, 2013.
One of the new Bridgeport members is David Walker (second from right in photo), who is a Republican candidate for Lt. Governor of CT on the. It was my pleasure to meet Dave at the Rotary Club of New Canaan’s regular meeting last week, where he was the speaker. He gave a terrific talk on how to get Connecticut’s financial house in order and start the economy moving again. I’m a registered Democrat, but Dave made a lot of sense.
I’m sure he would be delighted to speak to other Rotary clubs.
Make it 10! Newtown inducted 2 new members on March 3.
Larry, send their photo and names, we will update the blog posting.
