S&P OYSTER RESTAURANT VETERANS DAY BENEFIT EVENT

 


15% of sales from November 11 & 12 to benefit local veterans. 

 

 

 

On Sunday, November 11 and Monday, November 12, S&P Oyster Restaurant will commence its annual benefit event for local veterans. The restaurant will donate 15% of the total revenue from those two days to the Connecticut Department of Veterans Affairs. 

The Connecticut Department of Veterans Affairs serves those who served their country, providing a number of different programs including educational training, health, medical and rehabilitation services, housing facilities and employment assistance. They help veterans receive care to overcome disabilities, transition from military service and enjoy a higher overall quality of life.

This annual event provides a means for the community to donate back to one of our most neglected demographics, our veterans, by simply enjoying a fine dining experience. 

“Supporting veterans and active duty military is something very personal to us at S&P Oyster Restaurant. Many of our staff have friends who have served, and some of us have family currently serving in Afghanistan. I think the best way to thank our servicemen and women is to support the groups that take care of them, which is why I’m so happy we are able to contribute to such a fantastic organization.” – Cathleen Holland, Co-Owner, S&P Oyster Restaurant.

Ribbon Cutting: Rotary Peace Garden

Riverfront Children’s Center

 

Comments: Carol Kent, Rotary Club of Mystic

May 19, 2017

 

The development of the Riverfront Children’s Center (RCC) Peace Garden is a project of the Rotary clubs of Mystic, Groton, and The Stoningtons with an added donation from the Groton Parks Foundation and matching fund from Rotary District 7980.

 

Rotary is an international organization with 1.2 million members participating in 35,250 Rotary Clubs world-wide. All clubs have the opportunity to apply for national and international grants. In the case of the Peace Garden, local club funds applied for matching district funds and with a budget of $12,000 plus have developed this wonderful contemplative spot for listening to stories, bird watching and practicing the skills learned in their RCC “mindfulness” curriculum that is part of the social/emotional development teaching of the center.

 

The project began with a wish of Joan Butler, a Mystic Rotarian and supporter of RCC, to identify a RCC project. Sue Corrice, a recently retired 20+ year leader of RCC, worked with a Rotary steering committee of participating clubs to develop this project as an adjunct to the social/emotional development RCC curriculum. Mary Richardson, owner of Burnett’s Landscaping and a Rotarian, worked with the committee to design the resulting garden. Over the winter Lea Doran, Groton Rotary, worked with the children of RCC and volunteers to produce alphabet and number pavers that have become part of the garden.

 

On May 19, 2017 an official ribbon cutting was held to open the garden. Participating in the ribbon cutting were:  Betty Smith, incoming president of Mystic Rotary, Lea Doran, Groton Rotary and Marti Bradshaw, The Stoningtons Rotary.
