Waterbury Rotary Cigar Dinner on 9/19

The Waterbury Rotary Club held their 2nd Annual Cigar Dinner at La Bella Vista last night under the Ponte Club Pavilion which features very nice hillside views, nice covered space and spacious meeting area. The event featured an extra long, extra large buffet dinner with Beer, Wine, Scotch Tasting and Cigars galore for those Aficionado’s. 

The event drew approximately 75 attendees and besides being an excellent fundraiser for the club it was also a perfect fellowship event under beautiful skies.

Try to catch this one if you missed it this year as the Waterbury Rotary Club does a top notch job with it.

Official Visit #18 – Waterbury Rotary Club – The Oldest Club in D7980

To look at the faces in the photos above an observer would never guess that at 96 years old, the Waterbury Rotary Club is the oldest club in our district and the second oldest club in the State of Connecticut.

The club was charted on April 1, 1917 and has a long storied history of community service in the ‘Brass City’. Some of their recent good works include:

The Waterbury Rotary Club is currently 21 members strong and they are determined to increase their numbers substantially this year as President Ellen Pollack and her team have made membership their top priority. They have a dedicated membership committee that is working on a comprehensive retention and recruitment plan. Assistant Governor Dave Dlugos will be working with the Waterbury team on this plan.

The Waterbury Rotary Club meets on the 1st & 3rd Tuesday each month for lunch at Vasi’s Restaurant & Bar at 1700 Watertown Ave. Waterbury, CT 06708. It’s a nice restaurant with a great group of Rotarians, stop in for lunch.

Visit to Waterbury Club on July 2nd

The first club that I visited (an unofficial visit) as DG was the Waterbury Rotary Club about a 1/2 day after I was installed as District Governor. I had the pleasure of watching President Ellen Pollack conduct her first meeting of the new year and the presentation of two very generous scholarships by the club.

Ellen and her board have some big plans for this coming year with one of their top priorities being to expand their membership. The club just moved to Vasi’s Restaurant on Watertown Ave in Waterbury to be more appealing and accessible to potential members.

Looking for a great place to make-up on Tuesday’s at lunchtime? Then visit them on the 1st or 3rd Tuesday each month at their new location Vasi’s Restaurant on Watertown Ave in Waterbury.
