Approximately 40 people representing more than 20 businesses attended the Town’s first Woodbridge Business After Hours event. The event was held at Wheelers Restaurant on Tuesday, June 2. The goal, Woodbridge First Selectman Ellen Scalettar told the crowed “is to bring the business community together to learn about and learn from each other. We want to support you and our business community and would love feedback on how best to do that.”
Wheelers owner Peter LaTronica thanked everyone for coming and Economic Development Commission Chair Jody Ellant invited businesses to attend the EDC meetings and discuss their business to take advantage of the fact that meetings are televised.
The mood at the happy hour was lively and enthusiastic as local business people made connections and exchanged ideas and business cards. Scalettar has been touring new and expanding businesses and the Woodbridge Business After Hours series is an extension of the Town’s business outreach effort. Prior to the happy hour the Town circulated a short survey via the Town’s business email list and will use the information collected to offer workshop and discussion topics at future events.
If you are interested in joining the business email list or have an idea for a future business event, please contact Assistant Administrative Officer Betsy Yagla at firstname.lastname@example.org.
