Come be a part of the A&R Team as we have committed to participate during Harford Habitat for Humanity's annual Build-A-Thon Fundraiser on Friday, October 9th. We are proud to be part of an event whose end goal is to raise enough money to fully fund a home in the Greater Hartford region in 2016!!
Act fast and grab your spot before it's gone. If you're lucky, you might even get a free shirt too!!
A&R has set a goal to help fundraise $5,000 for Hartford Area Habitat for Humanity. To create your own crowd-funding page or to donate from the goodness of your heart on behalf of those going out to build all day click below:

Rowland Layoff Settlement: within the past week, employees impacted by the layoffs of 2002/03 should have received a "packet" from the lawfirm of Silver, Golub, Teitell. The packet contained an explanation and Q&A about the agreement and also included an "Opt-Out" form. Please DO NOT sign and return the Opt-Out form unless you DO NOT want to receive an award from this agreement. It is expected that very few people will sign and submit this form.
Pat Carolan Honored: Former A&R President (1989 - 1991) was honored by the White House and named a "Champion of Change" for his work on climate change.
