United Way Thanks Cyberbullying Participants

We very thankful to the following groups, organizations, and individuals who contributed to the success of our Community Conversation on Tuesday, April 29: the William Caspar Graustein Memorial Fund, Girl Scouts, Court Support Services Division, Boy Scouts, Torrington Catholic Youth, LARC, State Representative Michelle Cook, McCall Foundation, the Register Citizen, Susan B. Anthony Project, New Opportunities, Torrington Board of Education, Early Head Start, Torrington High School, Litchfield Bancorp, Charlotte Hungerford Hospital, and Jacque Williams Entertainment. 

The pasta supper was provided by Scarpelli Family Drive-In, water by Tim Flynn of Mount Claire Springwater, and paper goods by Price Chopper Supermarket of Torrington. We’re also thankful to the staff of Torrington High School for hosting the event and providing equipment to enable Spanish-speaking citizens and students to participate.  

Nearly 75 people listened to a presentation and engaged in worthwhile group discussions about cyberbullying, an important issue in this age of technology. A follow up meeting will be held on Monday, May 19 from 6-8 p.m. at THS to see what we, as a community, can do to reduce the terrible impact of bullying.
