SPECIAL ATTRACTIONS! 

MEET BRITTANY DECKER

MISS CONNECTICUT 2010  

BRITTANY DECKER - MISS CONNECTICUT 2010

 

Brittany Decker has wanted to be Miss America since she was a little girl who sang "Someday I'll be Miss America" at a talent show.   And now she stands ready to fulfill the goal.  Decker was crowned miss Connecticut at the Garde Arts Center in New London on June 26th, winning over $6000 in scholarship funds.

It was the fourth time she made it to the state stage, but she believes that her recent trips to Haiti and Cambodia are what solidified her win.

Her community service platform is called “One World, Global Awareness for Global Prosperity”.  In October 2009 she traveled to Cambodia to create a documentary for her studies, and to volunteer in some of the poorest villages. She now sits on the board of directors for a medical clinic in a small village in Cambodia. As she was about to leave, she was given a statue as a gift and the statue had a crown. "It reminded me of the values of the crown, bringing the values of the crown to around the world," she said, and that's how her platform was born.

She also recently traveled to Haiti and volunteered at an orphanage there. Decker is creating awareness of third-world countries by bringing the message that we should appreciate and be "thankful for all we have here."

Decker, 21, is a senior mass-media communications major at Western New England College.  Decker has been on the dean’s list and president’s list, is an active member of several honor societies, and has received many academic honors. She recently received an Associated Press award for broadcasting and a first place award for television reporting at her college’s media competition. She recently was an intern at an NBC affiliate in Springfield, Mass., Channel 22.

 
Decker will represent the state of Connecticut at the Miss America Pageant on January 15th, 2011, where she will compete for thousands of dollars in scholarship money and the Miss America Crown.   

 

  
              
 

MEET LOGAN WEST

CONNECTICUT'S OUTSTANDING TEEN 2010

10 am - 12 noon

LOGAN WEST - CONNECTICUT'S OUTSTANDING TEEN 2010

 

When Logan West was a seventh-grader, she was verbally and physically abused by a classmate. Never wanting to see any other child go through what she had, Logan decided to take a stand and created a program to convince other students to not get involved in something that had taken hold of her life for six months.

While that was going on, Logan was still doing something she's loved since the age of three: dance. She has won many regional, national and international titles in both tap and lyrical including "National Center Stage Dancer of the Year" and "Art Stone Global Entertainer of the Year."

And in November 2009, all her creativity and drive merged when she saw an article in the newspaper that advertised the Southington Outstanding Teen Pageant. She won the pageant, and on Saturday June 26, 2010, won the title of Connecticut's Outstanding Teen over 16 other girls between the ages of 14 and 17. She will now represent the Nutmeg State at Miss America's Outstanding Teen Pageant in Orlando, Fla. in August.

Logan said it feels "amazing" to win the state pageant. She said she didn't realize "how big of a deal" the pageant was until after she was crowned Southington's Outstanding Teen. But, she says, she worked hard on her interview skills and practiced dancing even more. "It's nice to see the hard work pay off," she said.

"I've wanted to be Miss America ever since I was 4 years old and this is one step closer to my goal," she said.

Miss America's Outstanding Teen is a pageant for girls between 13 and 17 that is affiliated with Miss America, the largest scholarship organization for young women in the world. Miss America contestants must be 17 and seniors in high school, up to age 24. The Miss Connecticut Scholarship Corporation sponsors the Teen and Miss pageants.

During preliminary competitions on June 24 and 25 at the Garde Arts Center in New London, Logan received the lifestyle and fitness award and the talent award for her a cappella tap dance to "My Lucky Coin." She was announced as a Top Ten contestant at the finals competition and at the end of the night, received several awards: community service runner-up; overall teen interview, which carried a $100 scholarship; overall lifestyle and fitness, which carried a $100 scholarship, and overall talent, $100. She received a $1,000 scholarship as Connecticut's Outstanding Teen and stands to win even more at the national pageant.

Logan, 16, is an 11th grader at the Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts, where she is a high honors student and is a dance major. Her professional goal is to dance with Alvin Ailey then own her own dance company.

Her issue of concern is "Bully Proof - Empowering Children Today to Prevent Bullying Tomorrow.” She created, designed and implemented her own oral presentation and web site, “stompingoutbullying.com.” Logan has spoken to more than 1,000 students on the negative effects of bullying and plans to share her program with students throughout Connecticut.

Red No.5 

11 am - 12 noon

 

 Red No.5 has lent their voices to reinvigorate and diversify Connecticut’s local music scene. While each woman in the quartet resonates as an individual, the four voices fuse together to create an eclectic, original sound.  Traveling far and wide to share their love of music, they are not only local favorites at Manchester's Main Pub, but have also been invited to sing at events such as the Block Island Music Festival, SingStrong in Reston, Virginia, and the 2008 Harmony Sweepstakes National Finals in California. They are proud to have used their unconventional understanding of music to develop a new system of musical notation incorporating traditional hieroglyphics, cave drawings, and Braille.

HISTORIC WALKING TOUR

Sponsored by the Rockville Downtown Association, Inc.

11 AM in front of RDA Office


Bob Hurd, architect and well-known local historian, will conduct a Walking Tour through historic Downtown Rockville as part of the “Rockville Fest” on Sept 25, 2010. He will bring the history of Rockville alive throughout the tour which will begin at 11 AM, in front of Vernon’s stately Victorian Town Hall.  Please wear comfortable footwear and bring your cameras and a notepad. The Historic Walking Tour is sponsored by the Rockville Downtown Association, Inc, (RDA) a Main Street community.
 The tour will focus on the Talcott Park Neighborhood just north of Town Hall in the area of Elm Street, Park Street, and one block of Prospect Street surrounding a small city park. The houses represent a variety of Victorian architectural styles ranging from early nineteenth century Greek Revival through the Gothic and Italianate styles down to the high Victorian eclecticism of the 1880's and 1890's. Here on narrow city lots adjacent to the downtown, the mill owners chose to build their stately homes. The neighborhood still retains a remnant of its late nineteenth century elegance.
 Mr. Hurd, a resident of Rockville, has served as President of the Vernon Historical Society, Chairman of the Town of Vernon Historic Properties Commission and as a member of the RDA's Design Committee.

The houses which you listed are all covered on the tour.

The Rockville Community Alliance Mission

“IMPROVING OUR TOWN, TOGETHER!”
The mission of the “Rockville Community Alliance” is to improve and preserve the greater Rockville area of Vernon through the cooperative efforts of residents, the Town of Vernon, and other stake holders, including but not limited to: businesses, property owners, religious organizations, cultural services, and non-profit organizations.

A Partnership between the Vernon Police Department and the volunteers of the greater Rockville community.

 

Tri-Town Cruzers
to raise funds to support the
Matthew Gauruder Memorial Scholarship

The Tri-Town Cruzers have a long history of helping out in the community. Throughout the years, they have supported many good causes and encourage their members and guests to help wherever and whenever possible in giving back to their communities.
 
Throughout the 2010 cruise season, the Tri-Town Cruzers will be donating a portion of our proceeds to the following charities:
·         Channel 3 Kids Camp
·         Kid Safe
·         Cornerstone Foundation - Shelter
·         Protector of Animals
 
The Club leadership also gives an extra driver's ticket to driver's who donate an item of clothing for our Disabled Vets OR donating a canned food item for the food pantry.
The Rockville Fest is the largest annual special event the Tri-Town Cruzers are associated with and the proceeds from car owner donations and sponsors are designated to the Matthew Gauruder Memorial Scholarship.
Matthew Gauruder, a 17-year-old Rockville High School student was playing football at a post-prom party on a Westerly, Rhode Island, beach in 2001. Running backward to catch a pass, Gauruder fell into a hole dug by friends. As his stunned buddies tried to walk towards him, the hole caved in. He was revived briefly before later dying at a local hospital. His mother, Mavis Gauruder, said she grew up playing on New England beaches and never could have anticipated what happened to her son. The Gauruder family were members of the Tri-Town Cruzers at the time of the tragedy and their fellow members, decided to dedicate the proceeds from their participation at the Rockville Fest, toward the scholarship fund in Matthew’s memory.
The Tri-Town Cruzers thank fellow car owners, sponsors and spectators for their participation and fund-raising efforts at the Rockville Fest. It is with great honor that they are able to support the Matthew Gauruder Memorial Scholarship Fund” which gives three, (3) $2,000 scholarships each year to graduating Rockville High School Seniors.
