Happy Moments
Salin Low told the club about bumping into Hank Frey.  Hank said that he had seen Linda Pedergast while both were receiving their cancer treatments.  Hank reported that Linda's treatment was going well.  Hank has been battling his cancer for 10 years and is starting on a new treatment regime. 
Ann Clark was happy that she was re-elected as the Democratic Register of Voters for the town of Avon and thanks those who made it to the end of the ballot and supported her.  She also was surprised to see Linda Pedergast and her husband Paul voting in person. 
Gary Miller's living room has been taken over by a large quilt finishing machine.  Gary's wife has been making quilts for kids and adults through Quilts for Health but they have always had a problem finding someone to finish the quilts  Gary has become an expert and has almost caught up with the backlog.
Jolly Lux was thrilled with the support she has received from club members for GLO.  Her presentation to the club inspired both tears and donations.
Scott Nardozzi  was happy to report that President Alicia's surgery went well.  Although she is in a lot of pain from the double mastectomy preliminary reports were that the lymph nodes were clear.  She is expected to be released within a day or two from the hospital and recover at home.
Rollie Sterrett reported that the club was contacted by a West Point Senior Cadet who is from Avon about the possibility of a Rotary Scholarship to study in Munich, Germany for his Master's Degree.  The club will be working with him and the district on the application process.  He hs received permission from the Army to pursue this.  If successful, it will require a contribution from the club.
Anne Ruwet attended today's meeting to discuss the New Britain-Berlin club's wreath sale to raise funds for scholarships. Wreaths are once again $25. You can order a wreath by contacting Salin Low at by November 13. Checks are made payable to the New Britain-Berlin Rotary and can be paid at the time of delivery. Delivery will be sometime the week of November 30 with details to be worked out.  Anne is a former member of our club.  She also was a state legislature who won her first election by 1 vote.
Ring the Bell will be Friday and Saturday of Thanksgiving week  We will only be doing it at 1 door.  2 hour shifts between 9 AM and 7 PM.  It doesn't have to be a Rotarian, so feel free to bring a family member or friend to help out.  A sign up sheet will be conming out shortly.
The club is sending its condolences to Deb Stanwood who lost her father the week before last.

Connecticut E-Waste Program
Stacy Gray
Stacy Gray is the business development manager at Take2, Inc., which is an authorized electronic recycler.  Stacy is a former member of the Plainville Rotary Club.  
Take2 is one of only 4 certified recyclers in CT and the only one located in CT. 
Electronic waste should not be disposed of in a landfill as it is toxic to the environment.
All the cords, connectors, chargers, power supplies, that you don't remember what they are from, can also be recycled.
Take2 trys to make it easy to recycle by hosting multiple events around the state.
Under CT law, you can recycle your waste free.  All of the towns have a recycle area at their dump or transfer station.  Even if you don't have a sticker, you're still allowed to use it without charge.
Take2 also services business, but this is not free as it is for residential recycling.
Take2 is committed to security and uses magnates and mechanical shredding to make sure that any information on your hard drives gets safely eliminated.

“The FOUR-WAY TEST of the things we think, say or do”:

1. Is it the TRUTH?
