“We spent this morning saying a much-deserved 'thank you' to our local military service members at our 10th Annual Military Appreciation Breakfast. Through the support of our sponsors, General Dynamics Electric Boat, Dunkin', and Foxwoods, we invited over 140 active duty members as our special guests. Eastern Connecticut and our entire country are made stronger by the bravery and sacrifice of these men and women and their families. We also presented the Military Community Support Awards to Antonino Auto Group (large business category) and Cardinal Honda (small business category).”- The Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut
Antonino Auto Group Owners, John and Charles Antonino, visited the Southeast CT CPOA Pantry for the official check presentation of a $30,000 donation to the USCG Southeastern Connecticut CPOA. Thank you to everyone who volunteers their time to run the Southeast CT CPOA Pantry. The pantry accepts donations of non-perishable food items, toiletries, diapers and pet supplies. We'd also like to thank Senator Murphy for attending.
Nissan of Norwich held a Food and Toiletries Drive November 12th thru December 15th in our showroom. The drive was run in conjunction with local radio stations Q150, 102.3 The Wolf and WXLM 980 AM. All donations went to benefit St. Vincent de Paul Place of Norwich, CT. St. Vincent de Paul Place in Norwich serves between 220-280 meals A DAY in their dinning room. They also have a pantry that families in need can visit each week. The community and our staff really stepped up and by the end of the drive we had collected an amazing 532 lbs of food and personal care items. Thank you to everyone who donated.
Nissan of Norwich invited everyone from the community to bring their children to the dealership for a family-friendly Halloween Party. Staff handed out candy, we had a pumpkin painting station, bouncy house, pinata, cornhole games and guest appearances by the Geico Gecko and the CT Tigers mascot. We are so happy everyone enjoyed the event.
