Celebrating Connecticut

Posted on by Bob Santy

Last Thursday at the Bushnell, we had our 8th annual Celebrate CT! event where we recognized the contributions of individuals, programs, and companies to the best of economic development during the last year.

We had individuals who took the impossible and made it possible. Leaders in the craft brewery movement - three breweries out of the 44 we currently have in the state of Connecticut.  We had arts and cultural institutions who have improved the quality of life in Connecticut for decades.  And we also had manufacturers, the backbone of our economy for so long, who are bringing high-quality, high-paying jobs back to Connecticut. It is always a great pleasure to welcome these folks to The Bushnell and recognize their accomplishments.

We also give the Connie Maffeo Customer Service Award to our own Beth Wallace. We had a great celebration - I hope you were there - if not, I hope you will join us at the 9th annual Celebrate CT! event next year.

Enjoy the holidays and our best for 2018.
