29 Years And Counting, 130 Turkeys, $200 Cash, Infinite Goodwill

by Patricia Villers | Nov 21, 2014 11:02 am | Comments (1)

photo:patricia villersA Valley dentist and his family continued a 29-year tradition Thursday (Nov. 21), collecting turkeys and Thanksgiving dinner fixings for the food bank at Spooner House in Shelton.

Bruce Sofferman, his wife, Deborah, and their daughter, Sophia, spent Thursday morning dressed in Thanksgiving costumes standing alongside Route 34 in Derby to once again “collect food and raise awareness,” Deborah Sofferman said.

Picerno dropped off food at the Soffermans’ event Thursday for a very simple reason.

“It’s hard to eat a meal knowing somebody else may not have one,” he said.

Guest Column: Celebrate Shelton This Holiday Season

by Jimmy Tickey | Guest Column | Nov 18, 2014 3:48 pm | Comments (0)

Several years ago, Small Business Saturday was created to promote shopping at local small businesses across the country.

In an editorial I wrote at that time, I noted it was encouraging to see one day devoted to local entrepreneurs, but it was important to remember that small businesses are the life-blood of our local economy and they are open for business year round.

That is why I ​am so proud to join ​in the formation of a new effort titled​ Celebrate Shelton, created by two local small business owners, Nicole Heriot Mikula and Mike Skrtic, ​with support from the City of Shelton, the Shelton Economic Development Corporation​, ​and the Greater Valley Chamber of Commerce.​
