Mary Lou Wadsworth (far right) modeled at the UCONN Auxiliary Fashion Show at Lord and Taylor to benefit the Auxiliary's fundraising efforts.  Club members Mecheal Hamilton, Jennifer Deiderich, Irene Engel and Bette Case were there to show their support.  During the remarks at the show, we were happy to hear them acknowledge that the Farmington Rotary had given their financial support for the cameras which have been installed in the UCONN Health Center NICU so that parents can see their babies even when they are not present in the unit.
Wink Tharpe, sponsored by Augusto Russell, joined our club today. Wink is an Account Executive with May, Bonee & Walsh in Glastonbury.

Our speaker on January 19 was Meg Fanion, President-elect of the Bristol Rotary Club and co-worker with Robin Barrett at the Infinity Music Hall. Meg told members how she had become involved with Rotary as a member of Interact when she was 14 years old, attending Bristol Central High School. After college, her first job with The One Campaign gave her the impetus to join Rotary and she soon became involved with its many activities. She was surprised to be asked to be President at the age of 28, but realized that she wanted to do it and will even assume the post early since the current president has personal family issues.
