In This Month's Krier
Happy Anniversary Killingworth!
Killingworth 350th
Are you ready to party like it was 1667? We are and we are getting ready! The year 2017 will mark the 350th anniversary of the naming of Killingworth. A Committee of Killingworth residents have already been hard at work planning a series of events to commemorate the 350th Anniversary. The committee, chaired by Lucinda Hogarty, has been meeting monthly and their mission is to plan a series of events to commemorate the milestone anniversary. Already in the planning stages are events like a Scavenger Hunt which will focus on historical sites around Killingworth. Historical event nights featuring places from Killingworth's past like Cowboy Valley, and, displays of historical artifacts, lectures, and talks at the Killingworth Library that will focus on a variety of Killingworth-centric topics like our one-room schoolhouses, our cemeteries and the Birds of Killingworth just to name a few! School contests and projects are also planned for Killingworth students to participate in learning about the town's history. This partial listing of events will culminate in a 350th year Anniversary parade and town picnic to be held over Labor Day weekend 2017.

The committee is looking to hear from local residents and businesses on a variety of topics.
President's Message
Franco M. Piscitelli
Hello all! I hope everyone is excited for the coming summer months. The weather is finally cooperating after some pretty dreary days. I know I'm looking forward to spending time outside with fun summer activities, cookouts, and of course… yard work.

I want to thank all those who attended the Chamber's Annual Meeting at Budget Dry on April 21st. Thank you to Jason Weinstein for hosting the event. He's done a great job with his showroom and we wish him all the best. Thank you to our speakers for presenting. Mike Delvecchio provided us with a wealth of information on SCORE and how the organization can help business owners with business planning, efficiencies, hiring, and many other aspects of building a successful business. Thank you to Joan Gay and her update on the 9 Town Transit Route that will provide a valuable transportation service coming through our town, scheduled for the fall.

In June we look forward to presenting a deserving HK High School Student with the Killingworth Chamber of Commerce Student Achievement Award at Senior Awards night. Our next Business After Hours will be held at Premier Stone Products, with a a special focus on contractors. Details can be found on page 5, Chamber News. This will be a good opportunity for local contractors of all trades to enjoy good food and craft beer while networking and sharing business ideas with other tradesmen. Please join us for the first of the Summer Concert Series on June 12th at Parmelee Farm.
