In This Month's Krier
The Rotary Club of Haddam-Killingworth Service Above Self
HK Rotary
There's a new club in town. The Rotary Club of Haddam-Killingworth was chartered by Rotary International just two days after the First Annual Indian Fiesta Fundraiser held at Parmelee Farm on June 28th.

The journey began on January 20th when four Clinton Rotarians, two from Killingworth and two from Madison, held an informal meet and greet at the Killingworth Public Library. Rotary District Leaders Mukund Nori, Rick Bassett and Rupi Rupwani shared their experiences about Rotary International projects such as Polio Plus, Shelterbox and Rotary Peace Fellows. Presidents and members from other local clubs spoke with potential members about AMBER Alert, Warm the Children and food drives. Despite the cold, there was a large turnout and by the end of the evening the four had become eleven. Click to read full story »
President's Message

How can it be August already? I've been enjoying the outdoor events in town and I hope you have too. The Chamber has taken notice of the improvements local businesses have been making to their establishments this summer, a few of them are highlighted on Page 23. Always good to see.

If you're a Chamber member or a prospective member, please join us for a Business After Hours event on September 17, 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the beautiful Lavender Pond Farm. Chris and Denise Salafia have graciously offered to host, light fare and refreshments will be served. This is a great opportunity in a lovely location to network with other business owners in town.

Stay tuned for more information on the 3rd Annual Pumpkin Carving Party to be held at Parmelee Farm on October 24th, rain date the 25th. Also in the planning stages is Christmas at the Farm, more details next month.
