Vaughn Young was born and raised in Williamston, Michigan, a small town near Lansing and the “Heart of Industrial Michigan.” He graduated from Michigan State University in 1957 with a Bachelor of Science in Math. During his college years Vaughn played the piano with a five-piece jazz group. After graduation he accepted a job with Allen-Bradley, an industrial control manufacturer in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Following a two year training program, he was assigned to the Boston office as a sales representative. While living in the town of Lynnfield, north of Boston, Vaughn was active in Republican town politics and served as chairman of the town’s planning board for several years.

Lisa Barall-Matt was born in Hartford, Connecticut as one of four siblings, having a sister and two brothers. After living in Bloomfield through her high school graduation, she went to Ithaca College. Upon finishing school, Lisa took a computer programming job at Aetna. What was going to be two to five year stint at Aetna turned into a career as an information technologies executive with a run of twenty-two years.

Lisa got restless living the corporate life and decided in 2002 to “retire” from Aetna. She then entered the real estate profession and continues to practice today. Lisa has been with Re/MAX since becoming a realtor and has been its number one agent in Connecticut for six of the last eight years.

Annemary Gordon was born and grew up in Ghana, West Africa, where she also had her formal education and completed her undergraduate studies. In June of 2014, Annemary migrated to the United States and settled in Avon with her three children - Elijah and Brianna, twins age fifteen, who attend Avon High School and Geri, age fourteen, who attends Avon Middle School.
 
Annemary graduated May 2018 from the University of Saint Joseph in West Hartford with a Master of Social Work degree and is currently working for the United States Postal Service in Asset Management as an Inventory Control Specialist. She looks forward to making a change very soon and pursuing her career as a social worker, so that she can have a positive impact on the lives of others within her sphere of life.

 

The members of the Rotary of Avon-Canton are proud to announce the they have made the first installment payment of $90,000, to begin the outfitting of the Favarh Life Enrichment Building located at 100 Commerce Drive in Canton. The remaining $60,000 of the $150,000 pledge will be paid in 2021 to complete the facility.

This project will help the nonprofit organization provide even greater support for its clients with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The 7,836 square-foot building, located on Commerce Drive in Canton, will enhance Favarh’s day programs for adults who can’t work because of disability and medical complexities or who have retired from work. 

The new facility will be named the Rotary of Avon-Canton Building.

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.
