A Word from the Director

It’s hard to believe it is already August and the NCCCC has some exciting things happening!

Our Summer Picnic is right around on August 23 rd at the Knights of the Columbus in Somers and we are excited to announce the return of LOBSTERFEST! This is our summer picnic and a great way to relax, socialize, and bring the entire family to meet your colleagues. There will be raffles, music, yard games, and most importantly an incredible spread of food! If you know anyone considering membership encourage them join, as we are offering a free ticket to the picnic for all new members!

We are excited to announce a new event for the Fall, the “Quality of Life Expo”!! This is a community event open to the public, designed to encourage and support longevity for all ages. A great way to learn about long term saving, mental and physical well-being, and senior care. We’d like to thank Asnuntuck Community College as our host for the event, which will feature table top vendors, and breakout sessions where our community residents can learn a bit more in depth about long term preservation. If you’re interested in being a vendor or conducting a breakout session, please contact our office or see in the info below. We are running an early bird special until September 1 st!

We look forward to seeing you all at our Breakfasts, Networking Lunch’s, and Business After Hours in the coming months. If your business is interested in hosting an event or presenting a workshop for the Business Development Breakfast, please contact the office!
