Happy November

Hi Everyone!  Happy Friday.  Ready to change the clocks back tomorrow night?  I am.  I like an extra hour.  I do hear a lot of complaints though, especially from new moms.

We are having a resident appreciation day, and in the sprit of collecting data for this event I will share some of the interesting tidbits here with you (no names on purpose).

He is a Yale graduate  w/ a degree in Political Science and was a reporter for the Bridgeport Post Telegram . He spent 2 years in the Army at Fort Dix as a public information specialist. A lifelong tennis nut, he worked in NY and also at Heublein in Ct., and then consulted for many yrs.



She taught at the University of Hartford for 36 years.  Since retirement she continues to teach one course each term with specialties in medieval literature, detective fiction, film and international studies.


She raised two children and 5 stepchildren- sort of a brady bunch experience- and now takes special delight in her 9 grandchildren.


Among other things, she has written a biography of Beatrice Fox Auerbach who ran G. Fox and Company where many of our residents have worked and/or shopped.


At present she is at work on another biography of a well-know Hartford citizen, Moshe Paranov who founded the Hartt School of Music and who was the first director of the Hartford Symphony Orchestra.

See you later, and Happy November!
