"And everywhere, around, above, below, when the Preceptor bore his bride away, their songs burst forth in joyous overflow, and a new heaven bent over a new earth amid the sunny farms of Killingworth"

President's Message
Franco M. Piscitelli
As this is my first President's Letter for the Krier, I would like to say how honored I am to be named President of the Killingworth Chamber. My hope is to improve the business climate for Killingworth business owners and residents. In my term as President of the Chamber, we hope to grow our Chamber membership, expand our Board of Directors, and continue our successful Business After Hours networking events. This includes our Summer Concert Series at Parmelee Farm, orchestrated by past President Tim Gannon with great success. It's a wonderful event to attend throughout the summer months and we hope you'll join us. May I extend a huge Thank you to Tim Gannon for his leadership within the Chamber since its beginning many years ago. Tim will continue to be a guiding force among us.

I still remember the call from my wife "I've found the perfect home!". I thought to myself, sure, just like the last one. But, when I came to Killingworth to see the home we would eventually move to, I discovered she was right. We couldn't think of a nicer place to raise our son, whom we were expecting at the time. The beautiful scenery, the kind and caring community and the excellent school system made our decision to move to Killingworth incredibly easy.

As a business owner and parent, I became involved with our community and The Killingworth Chamber has been a great fit. Having been a member of other Chambers, I quickly saw how different the KCC operates, and for the better. Even though we have a smaller membership and business base compared to larger organizations, our close knit, small town feel is very endearing. I immediately felt I had more meaningful relationships with other business owners and I joined the Board of Directors shortly after to help grow our organization. We have come far over the last couple of years, with great help from the rest of the Board and our Krier Staff. I know our Chamber can do so much more for our community and our business climate and I plan to encourage its growth.

Our Chamber Board is 100% volunteer. While we currently have an active Board of Directors, we need the support of other members and business owners as well. Your ideas and talents would be greatly utilized to the betterment of all business in Killingworth and I encourage you to consider joining us. Our next meeting will be at the Killingworth Library On May 12th at 7p.m. Members and prospective members are welcome to attend.

My wife and I feel truly blessed to be part of our great community. It's really exciting to see our son grow in what I believe is one of the best communities to live in all America. Thank you again for your trust in me.
