Welcome to the Chamber
The purpose of the Chamber of Commerce shall be to create a more favorable atmosphere for local business in harmony with the quality and character of the community.

The Board of Directors meets the second Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. All members are welcome to attend. Business owners interested in joining the Chamber are also invited to attend.
In This Month's Krier
Welcome Resident State Trooper Scott Wisner
Scott Wisner
Scott Wisner comes to us from the Connecticut State Police Major Crime Unit. A veteran state police officer, Trooper Wisner was born next door in Winthrop (the part of Deep River on the Killingworth border) and served as resident state trooper in Essex, Connecticut for nine years, so he is very familiar with our neck of the woods.

He is also a national hero. In 2013, Trooper Wisner was named December Officer of the Month by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund for his "extraordinary gallantry and bravery at the risk of his own life, above and beyond the call of duty, while engaged in deadly combat with two armed and dangerous suspects." The action took place during a high-speed chase following an armed robbery in Westbrook.

Remember, the State Trooper's office is now in the Emergency Operations Center next to Town Hall. The phone number is (860) 663-1132 (but call 911 in an emergency).
President's Message
Franco M. Piscitelli
Hello Killingworth!
We hope you all enjoyed the month of January and weathered snowstorms well. February is a busy month for our Chamber. The next Business After Hours will take place on February 22nd at La Foresta Restaurant. This is a good opportunity for members and prospective members to meet other business owners and network. Our La Foresta events are always very full, so please don't wait to RSVP.

Our first legislative breakfast co-sponsored by the Killingworth and Clinton Chambers will host many of our local, state, and federal representatives. We will get to share the concerns and ideas of our local business owners to improve the business climate for us all. This is a rare opportunity with all our reps in one place to discuss specific business issues and we encourage all members to attend. I hope to make this an annual event and a new benefit to our members.

Finally, our deadline for the 350th Commemorative Booklet is nearing. Please make sure you get your business ad in by February 15th if you plan to participate. Residents can contribute as a Donor, Sponsor, or Patron. Visit our website, visit the library or town hall, or connect with Krier staff at krier@killingworthct.com regarding the different ways to be a part of this special piece of Killingworth History.

Hopefully your favorite football team made it to the Super Bowl and Happy Valentine's Day!
