Chamber Honors Mentorship Sponsors

From the Middlesex Chamber of Commerce:

Kenneth MacCormac, Chairman of the Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce, announced sponsorship recognition of Middletown Mentor Program at a Breakfast for National Mentoring Month hosted by The Governor’s Prevention Partnership. The Breakfast will be held at Courtyard by Marriott in Cromwell on Wednesday, January 28 at 8:00 a.m.

The Middletown Mentor Program corporate sponsors that will be recognized are: Citizens Bank Corporation, Connecticut Valley Hospital, Liberty Bank, Middle Oak, Seasons Federal Credit Union, and Wal-Mart Stores Inc.

Other sponsors of the Middletown Mentor Program to be recognized are: Citizens Bank “Not Your Typical 5K” Road Race, Middletown Board of Education, and Middletown Motorcycle Mania presented by Trantolo &Trantolo and WCCC.

“We are very thankful for the outstanding support of these organizations and for the hard work of Program Director Hal Kaplan. The program continues to be a great success because of these two very important pieces,” Middlesex Chamber President Larry McHugh said.

National Mentoring Month aims to raise awareness of the benefits and value of mentoring; recruit individuals to mentor, especially in programs that have a waiting list of young people; and promote the rapid growth of mentoring by engaging organizations—including businesses, faith communities, schools and community groups—to encourage their employees and members to become mentors.
