President's Message
Franco M. Piscitelli
Dear Killingworth Friends:
I hope you are enjoying the spring weather as June brings in the summer months. Many of you are celebrating graduations for your children, some heading off to college soon. My son will graduate from Kindergarten and it's hard to believe we moved to Killingworth 6 years ago – Time flies!

Thank you to Jason Weinstein of Budget Dry for hosting our Business After Hours on May 18th, a fun way to meet other business owners to share ideas and build connections. If you are interested in hosting a BAH, please contact the Chamber. On May 30th, we presented our annual Killingworth Chamber of Commerce President's Scholarship to an HK Graduate. More on the recipient in the July Krier.

June kicks off the monthly Farmer's Market at Parmelee Farm, followed by the first of the Chamber's Summer Concert Series on Sunday, June 11th. Please bring your family and some lunch to enjoy some good music performed by The Green Stamps. On June 27th, the KCC will co-host another Nexus event with the Clinton Chamber. This is a formal event that allows each business several minutes to discuss the services they provide, and what a good client or customer for them would be. With the knowledge gained, other members can provide targeted referrals.

The 350th celebration continues! The Historical Society will present a walk down memory lane highlighting the experience of a one room school house, fireman alert system before there were pagers and cell phones, and more. This fun evening is free and open to all. Join us….Thursday, June 8th at the Congregational Church Hall, Route 81 at 7 p.m. The Lions Club Has kicked off its 350th Commemorative T-shirt fundraiser.

Finally, the Killingworth Krier is supported by the ad revenue of our members. KCC members have exclusive access to advertise in our publication, distributed to residents free of charge. (3,000 copies). If you're not a member, please consider joining us, we can help create a marketing plan that will give your business town wide exposure. We appreciate the support of our advertisers, as the Krier wouldn't be here without you.

Enjoy the coming summer months and we look forward to seeing you around town!
