"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"
The Birds of Killingworth
by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Welcome to the Chamber
The purpose of the Chamber of Commerce shall be to create a more favorable atmosphere for local business in harmony with the quality and character of the community.

The Board of Directors meets the second Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. All members are welcome to attend. Business owners interested in joining the Chamber are also invited to attend.
In This Month's Krier
President's Award Recipient - Elizabeth Early
Elizabeth Early
Franco Piscitelli, President of the Killingworth Chamber, had the honor of presenting the Annual President's Award to a very worthy graduating senior. The recipient was chosen because of her strong work ethic and motivation to become an excellent student and contributor in her scholastic community despite challenges early on. Not only is she a successful student, but also a three sport athlete, Cross Country Captain, and Senior Editor of the Yearbook. As if that weren't enough, she's clocked in 200 hours of community service with her church and Youth and Family Services.

"It was a great honor to present the President's Award to such an outstanding individual" said Mr. Piscitelli "The Chamber would like to congratulate Elizabeth "Lizzie" Early on her many achievements. There is no doubt that Lizzie will have a successful career in Physical Therapy and anything else she may put her mind to. It was our honor and privilege to assist in this small way as she continues her life's journey."

Congratulations Elizabeth Early!
President's Message
Franco M. Piscitelli
Hello Killingworth Friends!
This is always a great time of year around town plenty of activities and with beaches so close by we have many ways to enjoy the beautiful New England landscape. If you're not taking a vacation elsewhere this summer, take advantage of the many wonderful spots right in Killingworth. Parmelee Farm has great hiking trails and farm markets each month of the summer. The markets continue to grow each year with some of our members offering their specialties. We also had our first Summer Concert Series in June with the Green Stamps, a fun event enjoyed by all. Join us again on July 9th to enjoy the 60 piece CT Symphonic Winds sponsored by Jacqueline and Don Wilcox. Please bring a picnic lunch and blanket and enjoy the farm on hopefully a nice sunny summer day.

In June we co-hosted our monthly Nexus networking meeting with the Clinton Chamber. This is a great opportunity for members to network with other businesses in a formal setting allowing attendees to build connections for their business. If you are interested in hosting a Nexus event, please let me know and we can schedule it for a future date. Also, consider hosting a Business After Hours at your location to showcase your business to our members and other business owners in a more relaxed setting. Along with our recent partnering with the Clinton Chamber on some events, I have met with the Presidents of the Shoreline and Old Saybrook Chambers. My hope is that we can collaborate with our Chambers and businesses to further improve the business climate within Killingworth. Look for future events with these Chambers.

We are getting closer to our Killingworth 350th Anniversary Parade and Picnic.

Finally, please go like the Killingworth Chamber Facebook page! If you are a business owner member, this is a great way to get the word out for your business.

Happy 4th of July to you and your families!
Franco Piscitelli
