Weekly Newsletter - June 26th, 2019
Coffee with the President,

Welcome to SUMMER! We waited and waited and now it is here! Hooray! Now that we are out of our houses, and the rains have stopped and the heat is on, let's take a good look at our houses, offices, apartments, garages, yurts and what all: does your space need some love? Want to put a few things in storage? While you are at it, want to hire a hauler? Oh no, the hauler got stuck in a rut in your driveway? That might be a garden opportunity waiting to happen... Now the space inside is empty, you can clean it and paint it, right? YES! Maybe even replace that foggy window on the north wall, or repair that step you keep tripping on, right? YES! How, when, where do I get... Listen, you don't need an app on your phone to find a cleaning crew, a carpenter, painter, contractor etc. Just call a fellow Tri-State Chamber of Commerce member below! 

What's that? the paint is dry? the floor is ready for a new rug? the new windows are installed and working? The next step is critical, don't go it alone: Get yourself an interior design consultation!

Whatever you have going on, in or around your space, your fellow Tri-State Chamber members have you covered!

Stop and Shop Bag Program

We are so excited to share that HCCC has been selected to be a part of the Stop & Shop Community Bag Program, which is designed to make it easy for customers to contribute to their local community while supporting the environment. 
For the month of July, each time a $2.50 reusable Community Bag is purchased at the Stop & Shop located in Canaan CT, $1 will be donated to HCCC, unless otherwise directed by the customer through the Giving Tag. 
This is a great way to raise awareness, support the environment and fund raise for our cause. 
Let’s get started! We can begin by spreading the news to our friends and family. Call, send emails, and post on social media. The more people who learn about the program and purchase the Community Bag during the month of July, the more money we will raise. To learn more about this program, please visit  stopandshop.bags4mycause.com .

Identifying Phishers, Scammers and the "Alleged Debt Collectors"
Hackers and scammers have honed their craft to the level that even the savviest become victims. From spoofed email accounts from well-known banks and credit card institutions alerting individuals their account has been compromised to robo-dialers with local numbers to know quite a bit about you - the situation with ID theft and social engineering is only going to get worse. These individuals are smart, manipulative, are on the dark web and are many - so many that it's hard for professionals protecting us to stay ahead of them and on top of them. Continue Reading

The American Mural Project with Executive Director Amy Wynn
On Saturday, July 20 at 11 am, Noble Horizons welcomes Amy Wynn, Executive Director of the American Mural Project, who will offer an insider’s look at the largest indoor collaborative artwork in the world. The mural is a tribute to American workers and highlights the productivity and ingenuity that has defined the country over the last century.  The mural, housed in two former mill buildings, is 120 feet long, 48 feet high, and up to ten feet deep.  
Artist Ellen Griesedieck launched the project in 2002 and with the support of advisors and generous sponsors, including Paul Newman, Sandra Boynton, Newman’s Own, the Home Depot, Aetna, and Stanley Black & Decker, her celebration of the American worker will soon open to the general public.   More than 15,000 children and adults have helped create pieces of the mural, and an additional 30,000 from all 50 states are expected to help finish the project.
Ms. Wynn was the Director of the Northwest Connecticut Arts Council for 15 years where she helped establish a thriving arts culture throughout the region.
