Perils, Pitfalls and Triumphs of Running a Small Business in New Milford...
This is an old event, from 2016
A panel of four local business people will talk about the "Perils, Pitfalls and Triumphs of Running a Small Business in New Milford" on Thursday, June 2nd at 7:00 PM at the New Milford Historical Society's Museum at 6 Aspetuck Ave. in New Milford (at the top of the Village Green). The talk ties into the newest exhibit in our lower gallery, "Business and Commerce in New Milford in the 20th Century – Then and Now." The panelists will cover the issues faced by our local business community. They will also reminisce about starting up their small businesses and share their experiences dealing with the business issues in our town. The four participants in the panel will include: Amy Czupkowski of Union Savings Bank (which will be celebrating its 150th Anniversary in Business this year); Michael Gold of Geron Nursing and Respite Care; Pam Picheco of Joe's Salon & Spa; and the New Milford Historical Society's VP, Justin Krul of Just-In Antiques. Refreshments will be served and those attending will also have the opportunity to examine the latest of the mini-exhibits in the lower gallery, which seeks to highlight a very important aspect of life in New Milford – the Economic life of our town.
