To all, keep up the good work. Learning never stops when you keep your eyes and ears open.
Congratulations for achievements or pursuits of different kinds go to many others. You will find numerous reasons in this issue to say “Well done,” “Good for you,” or “thank you for being you.” There’s one example on page 2, which highlights the Dime Bank as recipient of a five-star rating.
We all benefit when our banks win high marks. People’s Bank, page 28, deserves a hearty applause. Chelsea Groton Foundation distributed $60,775 among 21 local non-profit organizations serving SE CT and Westerly, RI…another hearty applause on page 10.

Also on June 16th, 88-year-old Louise Neistat and Margo Neistat will perform at the Garde Arts Center in New London, page 14. Yes, Louise dances – tapping just as she did in her days as a Rockette.
Boating season is underway and the fish are jumping. The Resident welcomes back Captain Allen Fee who will share local fish tales with you all season long, page 25. Patrick R. Norton emphasizes boating safety on page 24.
