David Lavoie, owner of Honor Movers, spoke at the Nov. 5 meeting of the Putnam Rotary Club. After careers in the U.S. Army and the Connecticut State Police, he decided he wanted to continue serving the community with a local family-owned veteran moving company --- and Honor Movers was born. Honor stands for Helping Our Neighbors Overcome Relocation. 
 Lavoie described the challenges of opening a small business and the continuing challenges of a booming business. Lavoie is on the left and Putnam Rotary Club President Richard Naumann is on the right.
