Dick Kisiel, who served with such distinction during his earlier time of membership in our Avon-Canton Club, returned home to us by rejoining in July.  As these notes, which Dick graciously wrote for us, will show, he repeatedly flunked retirement during these later years much to the benefit of the communities in which he continued his professional life and commitment to Rotary service.   Here is how he tells his story and reintroduces himself to our club:
 
After being appointed as superintendent in Avon in 1997, Dick joined the Avon-Canton Rotary Club serving as president in 2003-04.  In 2012, he chose to join the Manchester Rotary Club while serving as Manchester's interim superintendent of schools.  He continued his Rotary service with the Suffield Rotary Club eventually serving as its president for two years.  He currently resides at the Reservoir condominium complex in West Hartford.
 
Steve Horenstein became a member of the Avon-Canton Rotary Club in February of this year.  He was born and raised in Connecticut and is a 1973 graduate of the University of Connecticut.  Following graduation he attended a Respiratory Therapy program at Hartford Hospital.  He then worked for 12 years as a Respiratory Therapist at Mt. Sinai Hospital.  In 1987 Steven left Mt. Sinai and started his own company called Per Diem Medical.  It was the first company in the state to supply respiratory therapists to hospitals on an as-needed basis.  Five years later Steven started another company called Help at Home, which supplied homemakers, companions and personal care assistants to senior citizens.  He sold the company in 2020 and is now retired.  Steven lives in Simsbury with his wife Arlene.  He has two daughters who both reside in Boston.  
Help us support the Rotary Clubs in Ukraine, Poland, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, and Maldova which are providing aid and comfort to the war torn areas and nearly 5 million refugees fleeing the war zones in Ukraine.
The Rotary of Avon-Canton 
is a charitable 501c3 organization
