Greetings from your new Club President!   I am filling in for Laura this week as the COG publisher, hence why this didn't go out on Tuesday.  Here is a recap of our Tuesday, June 29, 2021, meeting.


Previous Events:


Our guest speaker this week was Sergeant Peter Hernandez. He is originally from Cleveland, Ohio. Before joining the Air Force, he was a firefighter. Now he and his wife reside in Bristol for the next four years. If you have children or grandchildren interested in the air force, please see Sergeant Hernadez at the Bristol Recruiting Office, 65 Laurel Street, Bristol, CT 06010, or via email at



Thank you to those who came out to the Aqua Turf for the 7890 Installation of our District Governor Joanne Alfieri, Assistant District Governors, and Incoming Presidents.



Upcoming Events:

The Club's Induction of our next president will be on July 2, 2021, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. THE LOCATION HAS CHANGED. It will be at O. V. Snow's office at 61 Bradley Street, Suite 3, Bristol, CT 06010. Parking is available in the lot and on the street. Please enter thru the main doors there will be signs to guide you. The dress code is casual.
