Stamford students recognized by DAR for good deeds

Cool Story - Stamford students recognized by DAR for good deeds

Stamford inhabitants are recognized by the Daughters of the American Revolution.

Last month, the Stamford Daughters of the American Revolution presented eight honors to residents who "make Stamford a better place to live."

Meagan Ash of Stamford High School and Samantha Feeny of Westhill High School received the Good Citizens Award, which is granted to youth who excel in academics, leadership, service, reliability, and patriotism.

Melissa Silva and Dinyar Unvala, two other students, received the Outstanding Conservation Award for their volunteer efforts with the Stamford organization Waters.

During a ceremony at the Stamford Historical Society, four other Stamford residents received community awards. Marianne Tagliavia received the Historic Preservation Award in recognition of her voluntary work at the Stamford Historical Society Library.

The Outstanding Community Service Award was granted to Mark Nowotarski and Daniel Mac Dougall for keeping and growing the First United Methodist Church community garden to tribute vegetables to The Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County. Military veteran Tom Finn accepted the Outstanding Award on behalf of another veteran, Ray Bowling, who was honored for his service to the community and country.

The Daughters of the American Revolution, a national organization of women that encourages patriotism and love of country, is now undertaking a membership drive in Stamford. Those interested should contact ksbacon@optonline.net.

Legislative Breakfast set

The 23rd annual Stamford Chamber of Commerce Legislative Breakfast will be held on Jan. 26 at Deloitte, 695 E. Main St., and will include area lawmakers in a panel discussion on current events with a commercial focus. Registration will take place between 7:15 and 7:30 a.m., and the event will include a continental breakfast.

The panel discussion, led by Harry Carey, AT&T's director of external relations, will include state Reps. Matt Blumenthal, Rachel Khanna, David Michel, and Corey Paris, as well as state Sen. Ceci Maher.

The cost is $45 for chamber members and $55 for non-members.

Taste of Stamford tickets are available

While the 29th annual Stamford Chamber of Commerce Taste of Stamford gastronomy event — billed as a "culinary feast" — doesn't take place until the spring, tickets, and sponsorship options are currently on sale.

There will be no walk-ins, so tickets must be purchased in advance. The event will take place on March 23 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Harbor Terrace at Shippan Landing, 262 Harbor Drive, and will feature more than 20 food and beverage exhibitors.

The cost is $75 for chamber members and $85 for non-members. Attendees must be at least 21 years old. There is free parking. Attendance was low.

Contact cbusani@stamfordchamber.com for sponsorship packages that include event recognition, tickets, and exposure to marketing materials, digital programs, the chamber website, and newsletters.

Stamford EMS receives a perfect score

The Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services reaccredited Stamford EMS with a flawless grade, according to the agency. CAAS accreditation in the emergency medical service business denotes that an EMS provider has exceeded the top level of patient care, often exceeding state or local regulatory requirements.

The perfect result ensures Stamford EMS's certification with the leading rating agency for the 15th consecutive year. Stamford EMS is one of just two Connecticut EMS organizations that meet the stringent CAAS standards, and the three-year accreditation is valid until 2025.

Before honoring the organization for its excellence, CAAS evaluators conducted a complete on-site examination of the Stamford EMS facilities, including visitation, interviews, and observation.

Stamford EMS received a perfect score in over 100 categories, including agency management, financial management, strategic planning, relationships with outside agencies, disaster coordination, community education, and relations, training, problem resolution, vehicles, equipment, facilities, communications/dispatch, and more.

The annual Stamford EMS appeal is presently underway. The local nonprofit, which was created more than 30 years ago, collaborates with other emergency services in Stamford but is a separate, private company. Visit www.stamfordems.org or call 203-968-1118 for additional information or to make a gift.
