Swinging for Glory and Campers . . . Pay it Forward  
 

 
October 1 & 2 was the weekend for area golfers to try and make a Hole in One with the winners being local underprivileged youngsters from area towns that  get to attend summer camp.

This year there were 464 applications for camping slots. The 2011 goal is to raise $140,000 which is at the 84% mark currently.

Here in our area, a few of the local Prospect CT businesses are serving as collection points for these items. Socks can be brought to the offices of the Prospect Pages in Cross Pointe plaza right … (13 comments)

Reaching Out to An Associate in Need . . . Pay it Forward
 
While reading through my Social Blog, I caught a word on sonmeone's post that made me stop.
There was a tone that I caught that hit the sense in me that this particular blogger was having problems  or maybe just caught up in some excesses of life and just needed a helping hand or maybe just an ear to talk to.
I made the call and we made the connection. As we were already a subscriber to each other's posts, it took a lot of the … (75 comments)

We recently attended an outdoor concert that featured Big Band Music and specifically the music of Benny Goodman. I truly enjoy listening to the swing music of the late 30's and 40's, and ther's nothing like hearing it live by a 16 piece orchestra.
We had made up our minds to go and as luck would have it, I simultaneously got an online offer to purchase 4 tickets for the price of 2. As I was in-line at the ticket booth, I saw a couple coming up … (10 comments)

I recently had to take my car to the service center in town because I noticed a puddle of water on the mat on the passenger side of the car. My thoughts were of a leaky window seal or a broken air conditioner, neither of which would be pleasant.
The mechanics looked at the seal from the outside then pulled the car onto the lift and sent it up. With a piece of wire in hand, he went under the car, looked around for a … (18 comments)

A Simple Coffee Purchase Brings a Smile . . . Pay it Forward
We had some excessively hot days this past week, and there was never enough cool liquids to make me feel comfortable. While running around, I stopped at a local quick stop to get something cold to drink. I got into line and waited somewhat impatiently for the woman in front of me while she scrambled through her purse for her money.

Then the charitable side kicked in and I stepped up to the counter, placed my drink on the counter and gave the clerk a $20.00 bill … (9 comments)
