March 21st 5:30 to 7:30 pm The Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce cordially invites you to attend The Business Scene, an informal, networking event for business people in the Greater New Milford area at 1st and 10 Sports Bar & Grill.
Sponsored by Greater New Milford Business Association and LoStocco Refuse Service.
507 Danbury Road, New Milford
March 25th 6 to 8 pm Speed Networking
The Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce cordially invites you to attend Speed Networking* a networking event offered exclusively to Chamber members in the Greater New Milford area.
Because of limited seating and the format of Speed Networking
• we are operating on a first come, first served basis
• one representative per Chamber membership may attend
• an RSVP is required.
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP.
* Speed Networking is a method of making a potential business contact by briefly speaking with people at an organized event and exchanging contact details.
Networking can help local businesses build leads and uncover new opportunities as well as raise a business’s profile within the business community. Especially in a slow economy, networking can be an effective and low cost component of any business’s marketing plan and often yields a relatively high “bang for the buck” compared to other forms of marketing. Also, for some business people, it can be difficult to break down barriers and approach new people at existing Chamber networking events like the monthly Business Scenes.
With these things in mind, the Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce is pleased to hold Speed Networking events for Chamber members. These free events will include a structured period which will maximize the number of people each participant meets and speaks with.
Each attendee is encouraged to prepare an elevator pitch+ and bring a stack of business cards and pamphlets or other marketing materials to distribute as part of the event. Our intention is for each attendee to arrive with a stack of their own business cards and leave with a stack from those new business acquaintances they’ve made a connection with during the event.
At the end of each event, the Chamber will host a period of open networking so that members can follow up with new acquaintances they met during the Speed Networking.
+An elevator pitch is a brief overview of an idea for a product, service, or project. The pitch is so called because it can be delivered in the time span of an elevator ride (60 to 90 seconds).

Much love and thanks,
Sandy Hook School Shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting was and is a devastating occurrence to those directly and indirectly affected. Kimberley Deutsch, Creative Architect, has donated countless hours developing this video, organizing the fundraiser, research, and distribution of its release to multiple news stations and even Oprah Winfrey. THE GOOD WORD applauds her efforts.
In this video, a collaboration of what’s to be found on the net has been created as an impacting, heartfelt video. Imagery has been optimized to its potential and links to donate are provided on this page.
Kimberley felt moved by this occurrence and even more-so because it was so close to home. This event should not bring to light the individual allegedly responsible. Let’s only take this time to reflect on the ones affected in the most positive way possible and gather to help these families in this unimaginable time of despair.
There are other ways to donate if money is not your preference. Here are some ideas. If you are unsure of how to present yourself/services, email me and I will use my resourceful abilities.
Please donate. Even if it is only a dollar. Money collected will be given to the governor of Connecticut for appropriate handling. Arrangements will be made to have this publicized. If you are unable to donate, PLEASE SHARE THIS VIDEO WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW. Sharing the video will increase the chances of collecting money to help these families. ALL DONATIONS MADE TO THE NEWTOWN PARENT CONNECTION WILL BE DONATED TO the families and community AFFECTED BY THE Tradgedy.
NEW MILFORD, CT (November 26, 2012): New Milford resident Michael Gold is a long time supporter of United Way and an advocate in the greater New Milford community. He is a volunteer in the community, owner of a business that provides health related services, and a family man. And he is now calling on his neighbors and colleagues to help raise money for United Way and improve conditions in the Southern Litchfield County community.
With the economy slowly pulling out of a recession, many people are still facing a tough reality. And many others are finding themselves newly in need.
“There are real people in our community who have never experienced the difficulties they are facing today,” said Kimberly Morgan, United Way of Western Connecticut CEO. “And this growing population overlays the people who have always been in need of services. As many as 15% of the families in New Milford alone are considered working poor.”
United Way gives these families the support they need to get back on their feet by funding crucial social service programs that form a safety net to not only catch them in their time of need, but to gently set them back on their feet to thrive again.
“As a volunteer with United Way, I have seen first hand the value that the organization brings to this community,” said Mr. Gold. “I have been involved in distributing funds to our local social service agencies and have experienced the challenge of meeting the funding needs of these worthwhile programs with limited funds.”
“United Way is an investment in solving the issues that are impacting our neighbors and families. We need to come together as a community and shore up the gap in funding that has expanded over this recession.”
As a way of doing his part in his community and helping his neighbors, Mr. Gold is proposing a challenge to the Southern Litchfield Community: help him to raise an additional $100,000 above and beyond the regular United Way fundraising campaign in Southern Litchfield County.
Mr. Gold envisions a true grassroots effort: banding together to coordinate with individuals in your circle of friends, neighbors and colleagues who may have never given to United Way – or those who may be able to give a little more – AND canvas the small businesses in our community to expand their business investments to include investments in their community.
The need within Southern Litchfield is made obvious in calls that have come in to United Way 211. From June 2011 through July 2012, United Way’s 211 information and referral hotline directed over 1,100 people to the services and help they needed, for everything from utility issues to information on food pantry and health care. 1,175 calls for Southern Litchfield County resulted in 1,669 requests for services.

Continuing this kind of help, supporting social service programs, and expanding United Way’s focused initiatives in Southern Litchfield is only possible if people across the region generously support the United Way campaign.
Michael is leading by example – as he often does in this community. “I’ll be forming a team comprised of friends, associates, family, to go out to their networks of personal & business contacts and raise money for United Way,” said Mr. Gold. “In true grassroots fashion, I will be knocking on doors, paying visits, making calls – whatever it takes to expand our communities’ donor base. And I’m inviting others to do the same.”

Personal Letter From Michael Gold: To all my Neighbors, Friends, Family and Colleagues,
Many of you know that I am involved with United Way of Western Connecticut, specifically the Southern Litchfield County Council.
I have served for the last 5 years on United Way’s Southern Litchfield Community Council where we help ensure our local community needs are met, and that money raised here is used effectively to help people right here in our community.
Unfortunately, as is the case across the U.S., we can expect a shortfall in funding for our own area this year – largely due to an economy that has been slow to recover.
So I have an idea. Let’s help United Way as it works to fill this gap in funding so we can play a direct role in preserving our social service safety net.
I am heading up the Southern Litchfield County Neighbors Fund – a volunteer-driven initiative to raise $100,000 for United Way of Western Connecticut, and the local programs they serve in our area. This is a campaign that will run from now to December 31st – a grass roots fundraiser that specifically helps our town and surrounding towns, i.e., New Milford, Bridgewater, Roxbury, Washington, Warren, Kent, and Sherman.
I have enclosed material so you can see how your donation will make a difference in our community. Additionally, visit the New Milford Spectrum for a recent article on these efforts (click here).
So along with many of my friends and colleagues, I am making a direct appeal to you. Join me in helping our neighbors here in Southern Litchfield County. This is where you and I can make a difference. Help us raise $100,000 so our local programs can continue to get our neighbors in need back on their feet.
You can make a donation one of two ways:
Join our grassroots effort – and encourage your friends and family to do the same. This is it!
WE can make a difference!
Many thanks! And Happy Holidays!

Do you reside in an area that is prone to hurricanes? If you live on the East Coast, namely in the south or if you live along the Gulf Coast, the risk of a hurricane impacting your life can be quite high. Are you prepared?
Unfortunately, not everyone is. As a result, many home owners are left scrambling to recover during the aftermath. For example, people without power may need gasoline powered generators. If hundreds of people in the same area need generators at the same time, stores are likely to sell out before more can be brought in, leaving those who did not stock up in advance in the dark. Other problems that may arise during the aftermath of a hurricane include:
To make matters worse, many roads may be blocked due to storm damage or flooding, so even if a local store or supermarket has supplies you need, getting the necessary supplies may be very difficult or impossible depending on where you live.
hurricane season extends from the beginning of June through the end of November. It is important to preplan for hurricanes. If you live in a coastal area prone to hurricanes, you fortunately get lots of warning from weather centers across the country. Take advantage of this advanced notice by heeding hurricane watches and warnings and preplanning your hurricane evacuation and safety.
Follow these steps.
You will want to first start by deciding what you need or what you would like to bring with you in case of an evacuation. You will want to create a list of storm preparedness items for a hurricane, make copies of that list, and store those copies in convenient locations around your home. Because it is more difficult to remember the details of what to bring when faced with an immediate crisis, creating of list of what items you will need to gather is important. This will ensure nothing important is left behind or forgotten.
There are also things you need to do around the house prior to a storm. Make yourself a Pre-Disaster Action Checklist to ensure you have prepared your home to the best of your ability. Read more about how to prepare your home for a hurricane.
Do you have an evacuation plan in place? Do you have any close friends or family members who live on higher ground or farther inland? If so, arrange to stay with people you know who are willing to temporarily open up their homes to you. If you do not have any friends or family in a safe area, you will need to stay at a hotel or a hurricane evacuation shelter. Check your local municipality to see where your nearest hurricane evacuation shelter is located. If you choose to stay at a hotel, it may be a good idea to have some cash on hand you can take with you.
Although people are urged to evacuate from areas where hurricanes are forecasted to hit, some residents still choose to remain behind to protect homes and other belongings. If your area has received an evacuation notice or mandatory evacuation, evacuate. No material belonging is more valuable than one’s own life.
If you own pets, make arrangements to bring them with you. Many animals left to their own devices after a storm become lost, injured, or killed by damage to homes, flooding, or flying debris. It is best to remove pets from the area until everything has settled down.
If you own livestock, implement a storm preparedness plan for a farm. Livestock is especially susceptible to injury from flying debris in open fields and flooding. When frightened, livestock herding instincts kick in and may cause animals to group together in the worst possible areas. Once trapped, it can prove very difficult to relocate livestock during the chaos of severe weather.
