Let’s blow out the candles for our New London Police Department…all 140 of them! During the well-attended celebration here, Congressman Joe Courtney, Attorney General Richard Blumenthal and State Comptroller Nancy Wyman presented Officers Joshua Bergeson, Douglass Williams, John Manavas, Kevin McBride, Jose Olivero, Leslie Smith and Marshall Segar with the CT Wartime Service Medals.
The eye-catcher story is about the businessmen on the front cover and the one inside on page 10 of Kenyon Murphy, VP, Hoxsie Buick Pontiac GMC, Westerly. The Greater Westerly-Pawcatuck Chamber of Commerce produced a humorous calendar that features 30 business guys who agreed to cast aside their modesty for a fundraising effort. Get the skivvy here.
Art Singer is an awesomely talented artist and stonemason who has an amazing life journey. Check out his “Returning” statue that he donated to the Mystic River Park here.
Local Dentist Drills Orchestra here. For the 20th time since 1986, Waterford dentist Dr. John Dreslin, Stonington resident, took the baton and conducted the orchestra in this year’s production of “Patience” by the CT Gilbert & Sullivan Society.
A new column, which will run as a series, is the Resident Financial District here. In today’s economic downturn with the focus on floundering financial institutions, we’ll attempt to clarify what’s happening in the financial market and discuss the good news about our community banks right here on Main Street. To kick off this informational program, James Cronin, President & CEO, Dime Bank, does a wonderful job of telling the story of how we got to where we are today.
Thanks for reading the Resident, the Good News that Rocks! Please remember to patronize our advertisers as they’re helping to make the “good news” happen.
