Business After Hours - Warming a Winter's Eve
It was a cold, snowy night on February 23rd, so typical of the winter we are grateful to leave behind. Despite the inclement weather, more than 60 KCC members and friends found respite from the storm as they gathered at La Foresta Restaurant and Wine Bar for a Business After Hours social. By all accounts, the entertainment inside was well worth the trek outside, a true testament to the fortitude of New Englanders. Board members of the Killingworth Chamber of Commerce were thrilled to see so many faces, new and old, take the opportunity to network with other business owners, make new acquaintances, reaffirm friendships and enjoy good food and drink.

Host Francesco Lulaj and the staff at La Foresta were gracious and accommodating. Guests enjoyed delicious pasta dishes and abundant antipasto spread, served with a sampling of outstanding wines.

KCC Board member and co-host Sarah DePino, along with fellow co-workers at Michaud, Accavallo, Woodbridge and Cusano, were also on hand to greet and socialize with guests. State Senator, Ted Kennedy Jr., was in attendance and talked with many local business owners.
President's Message
Carrie Sassi
It looks like spring may actually arrive this month and I know we are all glad the winter seems to be winding down. What a wonderful turnout the Chamber had at its Business After Hours event at La Foresta Restaurant and Wine Bar in February. It was great to see so many new and familiar faces. I'd like to thank Michaud, Accavallo, Woodbridge & Cusano accountants for co-sponsoring the event. We know April is a very busy month for them and we enjoyed getting to know so many of their staff. Our gracious host for the evening, Francesco Lulaj, owner of La Foresta, wined and dined us to perfection.

Our next event will be our Annual Spring Meeting on Monday, April 20th at 6:30 pm at the Killingworth Library. Rep. Jesse MacLachlin and Sen. Ted Kennedy, Jr will both be on hand to give us an update on how our town is being represented in Hartford. Please join us for great conversation and light refreshments. Your input is always appreciated in helping make the Chamber a strong resource for the business community in Killingworth.

This month we'd like to welcome new member Jason Weinstein and Budget Dry Waterproofing. Budget Dry is located in the old True Value building on Route 81. Also joining the Chamber this month is Joseph Nuzzo and Shore Electric LLC, and Jay Selmer and Sprout Landscaping, both from Higganum. Returning to the Chamber is M&M Realty from Durham.

As you know, member dues are the foundation of funding for Chamber events and the Killingworth Krier. We are happy to provide opportunities for local businesses to showcase themselves and celebrate their contributions to the community.

Next Meeting of the Board of Directors April 9th, 7 p.m. at the Killingworth Library. All members and business owners interested in joining the Chamber are welcome.
