Our January 17th meeting…

We started the year off right! Thank you Tile America in Fairfield for hosting our January meeting! Thank you Sheri Sorrentino-Snellman for the wonderful presentation on the latest color, finish, and style trends in tile. Mike Smith & Ryan Zibold, installation experts, were on hand to answer our many questions.  We enjoyed a lovely light breakfast and we toured the brand new showroom! It was the perfect way to spend a a rainy day.

~Thank You to all of our IDS CT Members~

On January 1st I stepped down from chapter President after 4 years.  Each year brought new challenges that were met with intent to do the very best for our chapter.  I’m proud of all we accomplished together over all that time and stepping down is bittersweet for me, but it is time!

I am confident in our new President, Kathleen Bivona, and know she will put her all into this position to bring you the best of everything for 2017 and beyond.

Thank you all for standing beside me and helping to make our chapter better and stronger throughout the years. Your support meant the world to me.

Another year has passed by and we celebrated that and each other at our Holiday Luncheon on December 6th at Jeffrey’s Restaurant, 501 New Haven Ave, Milford, CT.

Well attended, we had a visit from Jenny Cano, NEW Executive Director of IDS.  Things are changing for the better and Jenny is leading us in the right direction. She is completely accessible anytime you want to contact her.

Wishing you and your family all the magic the season holds and a Happy & Healthy & Prosperous New Year!  Let’s go 2017!

The Family Justice Center approach is based on the San Diego Family Justice Center model that opened in 2002. The model has been defined as a best practice in the field of domestic violence intervention and prevention services by the United States Department of Justice. The Center would like to create a community where there is zero tolerance of domestic abuse and sexual assault. The Family Justice Center can help make this vision a reality.
