Stuart has not visited the Rotary Club of Stamford in Connecticut, USA, but chose it for his toast because it is in the home city of his former employer, Pitney Bowes (1987 – 1996).  He visited the Head Office of Pitney Bowes, near the shores of Long Island Sound, in 1990, in his role as Australian Business Manager of the Pitney Bowes International Shipping Systems Division.  At the time he was a member of a small team developing software for new products for international markets, of which Australia was one.

The Pitney Bowes Foundation and the Rotary Club of Stamford have been co-sponsors, with a number of other organisations, of literacy projects in the Stamford area. The Club is in District 7980 and has fifty (50) members.  It's led by President Christopher Farrugio and they meet at the Sheraton Hotel, 700 Main Street, Stamford on Wednesdays at 12.15pm.

From the limited information available on their website, the Club appears to focus on education, charity, science and literacy projects.  They also have a Rotary Whale project which appears to be focussed on business promotion.
