Norwich Chamber Gives Back to Community
Auto Show Funds Go To Deserving Local Non-Profits
NORWICH - Organizers of the Greater Norwich Area Chamber of
Commerce's Auto Show held a presentation ceremony on March 13 at Chamber
Headquarters on Main Street to present almost $2,500 to six deserving local
charities. Ellis and Grasso Technical High Schools, The Salvation Army, Norwich
Arts Center, St. Vincent de Paul Place, and Center for Hospice Care Southeast
Connecticut were among the recipients of his year's awards. Norwich Corps
Officer Captain Jerry Uttley attended the ceremony and accepted the check on
behalf of The Salvation Army.
Captain Jerry commented, "The Chamber and its members are so good to us.
They are dedicated supporters of the needs of the local community and are
always looking for ways to give back. The Auto Show is a highlight of the
year! It is one of the best in Connecticut and when you meet the people that
run it, you can understand why. I thank the show organizers, the awards
committee, and all of the Chamber members for their help. We are truly blessed
to have them as our friends."
