News About Our Activities and Members

Dan attended UConn, Storrs where he majored in economics and minored in marketing. He was Vice President of the Entrepreneur Club and was very active in other clubs around the campus. He is currently pursuing his MBA as well as a Master’s in Business Analytics and Project Management at UConn in Hartford.

Dan’s parents came to the United States from Madeira, Portugal when they were ten and six years old. A fun fact for international soccer fans is that his grandparents’ house was two houses down from Cristiano Ronaldo’s childhood home and she knew the family very well. Dan is currently single and “looking for the right dog”. He has a brother who is a Chemical Engineer in Fairfield County.

Thank you to everyone that participated in the
35th Annual Charity Golf Tournament
on Monday, August 27, 2018 at the Golf Club of Avon at 160 Country Club Road in Avon, CT.

Be sure to join us next year on Monday, September 9, 2019
 
We appreciate the support of our golfers, advertisers and sponsors.

Cherie worked as a molecular biologist in a hepatology lab at the UCONN Health Center for twenty years. She now teaches biology, microbiology, as well as anatomy and physiology as an adjunct at Tunxis Community College, Central Connecticut State University and the University of Hartford.

When Cherie was a little girl, she used to daydream about becoming a scientist and traveling to Africa. In August 2016 she found herself in Africa presenting her scientific research to nursing students. At that moment, Cherie realized her little girl dreams had come true!

Jimmy Ssekawaabe grew up in Kampala, Uganda and moved to Connecticut in 2000 at age sixteen. He attended primary and secondary school in Uganda and college at University of Wisconsin Milwaukee and University of Hartford. He jokes that he is single and “looking”.

Jimmy is employed by Liberty mutual as an insurance agent. In addition to Rotary, he is a member of the Canton Chamber of Commerce. He is particularly proud that he has been a special ed/paraprofessional for almost five years.

In his spare time Jimmy enjoys basketball and skiing. He also says he has an affinity for dining out.

Rotary of Avon-Canton Building to break ground in May, 2018!
The new Harry and Renee Haag Life Education Center (12,500 sq ft) and the Rotary of Avon-Canton Building (7,500 sq ft) have been approved by the Canton Planning & Zoning and Inlands/Wetlands Commissions. We hope to break ground on this exciting new project in May.
District Governor David Mangs had the honor of inducting two new members on April 20, 2018. Standing with their sponsor, Brian O'Donnell, and President Don Bonner, Eleni DeGraw and Carrie Firestone received their Rotary pins and membership certificates to the rousing applause of our members.

Eight Students from the newly formed Canton Interact Club joined us this morning (Feb 9th) along with their club advisors, Superintendent Kevin Case and teacher Michelle Traub
 
 
Each of the students introduced themselves and spoke briefly about their role and hopes for the club: Alex Leaderman (Co-president), Chris-Ann Brown (Co-president), Zahra Kahn (Vice president), Shian Earlington (social media), Madelynn Dunahoo (PR), Tom Eayton (Treasurer), Anna Melendez (Secretary), and Evan Adams.
 
Craig Buhrendorf presented a check for $4950 to Jolly Lux for Guidling Light Orphanage. The money covers the medical supplies and equipment. Jolly was very grateful for a program that started with no real plans at all and has grown to a wonderful outreach program in her home village in Uganda.
