In This Month's Krier
Peg Scofield, Killingworth's first recipient of the Women of Excellence Award
Peg Scofield
Congratulations to Peg Scofield for being the first Killingworth resident and business owner to win the Women of Excellence Award. On October 11th at Woodwinds in Branford, the Shoreline Chamber of Commerce and other surrounding chambers honored women that not only run successful businesses but contribute to their local communities as well. KCC President Franco Piscitelli had this to say about our local award recipient "Peg is involved in so many Killingworth civic organizations while still running her business, which is multifaceted and a great success. The town and Chamber are grateful for her work within our community!"

"I initiated my first community involvement because I saw a need and thought I had the skills and time to fill it" says Peg. "That was KillingworthToday.com. Once I started covering events, and organizations, I was drawn in by the passion of the volunteers and the sense that you can really make a difference on this small stage. From PTO to the Library, Community Gardens and Parmelee Farm, the hours spent are very fulfilling. Whether it's an hour or 100 hours, you see positive change taking place: right here, right now. Over a short time, it was clear how much name and brand recognition from my volunteer efforts helped bring in projects to grow my business. It was a "Win Win". Volunteering helps the community, your business, and sets a great example for your family about contributing to make your society better. Like minded citizens, friends, and neighbors coming together to make a difference."
President's Message
Franco M. Piscitelli
Hello Killingworth Friends!
I hope you are enjoying the fall months in our beautiful town. Many of you joined us for the Pumpkin Carving Party at Parmelee Farm. As I drive by the farm in the evening, I am inspired by that awesome display of talent lighting the night. We thank the Lion's Club and the KWO for their help with the event, as well as many other volunteers.

We were proud to be a part of the Shoreline Chamber's Women Of Excellence Luncheon. Our very own Peg Scofield was the Killingworth Chamber's award winner. Congratulations go out to the local women who were honored for their successes as entrepreneurs and community servants. We look forward to being a part of this event in the years to come. We continue to cohost networking events with the Shoreline and Clinton Chambers. Join us on November 16th at the Gables in Guilford for the Net90 Meeting with the Shoreline Chamber starting at 8 a.m. Then on November 28th, we will cohost a Nexus Meeting with the Clinton Chamber at 8 a.m. at the Clinton Town Hall. These meetings are targeted networking meetings. You'll have several opportunities to discuss your business with other business professionals and share with them the type of work or clients you are looking for. From there, you'll want to schedule follow up meetings with other business professionals that would be in your "sphere" of networking to further relationship. Personally, through these meetings I've been able to find key referral partners to refer my clients to for specific services. Our last Business After Hours was hosted by JV Wine and Spirits. This event, more social in nature, also helps to increase networking amongst the business community while having a little fun.

The Chamber would like to wish all a Happy Thanksgiving and a joyous Holiday Season
