News and CONSPA meeting schedule for 2015:
In November, our board approved monies from the,
“Good Will Fund” towards the purchase of toys for children of needy families in
Connecticut. Two angels- Holly Kulowski,
a long-time board member and past president, and her son went shopping and purchased a table full of toys! (see picture).
from The Marine Corps picked up their stash and is delivering it all to homes
in Connecticut where the holidays will be just a bit more fun this year! Love
Due to popular demand we are bringing back our
“Mastering Your Marketplace”
series for February, March and April – we’ll send out details as the dates approach. These
meetings will feature the latest technologies that the marketplace is
demanding. We design these meetings for those involved in sales, installation
and service. Attendance is limited so
your staff can ask all their questions and get quality answers. These meetings
are sponsored which helps keep the registration costs low! We are also rotating
the venue location to give everyone an opportunity to get out on a Tuesday
night. Look for the February meeting flyer next month. Presenters will be: Hayward in
February; Zodiac (Jandy) in March and Pentair in April.
I mentioned last month that we had presented a
$6,000. check to, “Children Of Fallen Patriots Foundation.” They were so grateful at this unexpected contribution, they asked if
there was anything they could do for us! I responded, “… is there any way you can
connect our contribution to swimming ? Such as competitive or recreational
pool/spa use?” I am happy to report that they are looking
to link CONSPA’s donation to a student involved in competitive swimming at the
collegiate level. Perhaps we will find ourselves
helping a future Olympic swim team member! More on this later. www.fallenpatriots.org
