 This coming Wednesday, October 11th is the 2017 Middlesex Chamber of Commerce Business to Business Expo In Cromwell, CT.  At the Business to Business Expo there will be a special workshop presented by the Middlesex Chamber Women's Business Alliance "Striving For Excellence, Not Perfection".I have equated excellence and perfection as closely related in the past, but an intro statement to this workshop has changed my understanding of these two words.  In the advertizement for the Striving For Excellence, Not Perfection Workshop it states:"There's a big difference between striving for excellence and striving for perfection.  Striving for excellence can really motivate and inspire you, whil striving for perfection can be completely demoralizing.  Trying to be  a perfectionist doesn't pay o...

  2017 Pancreatic Cancer Research 18-Hole Stroll On June 25th is at the The Travelers Championship, TPC River Highlands, Cromwell, CT  again this year.  Four years ago one of our ActiveRain members here in CT, Gail Robinson, lost her husband Bill to Pancreatic Cancer.  Gail Robinson is one of the nicest, and most courageous person I have met.  The battle her and her husband Bill fought with Pancreatic Cancer  the last few years of his life were both an inspirational, and heartfelt one for me.  The end of that battle for Bill was not the one many of us here on ActiveRain had hoped and prayed for.  But even though Bill's fight with Pancreatic Cancer came to an end, it does not mean we can not carry on the battle to bring an end to this horrible and deadly disease for others. While there ...

School Craft Fairs are a excellent way to show support for local schools, and this Saturday is an opportunity to do just that by stopping by the Cromwell Middle School 2016 Holiday Craft Fair November 19th.  School Craft Fairs are also a great way to find special Christmas gifts for those hard to buy for people. I still remember when my two sons were in school, my wife and I would spend our day helping to set up, man a booth, and then help take down things at the end of the day.  It was a lot of work, but it never seemed like work, it was fun.  Now we get to just go and enjoy the Craft Fairs we use to assist at. If you are near Cromwell Middle School, in Cromwell, CT. this Saturday stop in, and support the kids with even a small purchase.  You will not only be supporting the kids, but ...
