United Way Second Annual Benefit Concert

Infinity Hall Show To Feature The Cartells on April 28

It’s so easy to support your local United Way and have fun at the same time, by buying a ticket to attend the United Way Night at Infinity Hall in Norfolk on Wednesday, April 28, at 7:30 p.m.

Every ticket purchased will support programs of the United Way of Northwest Connecticut’s 24 partner agencies. Now, more than ever, these dollars are desperately needed, as the United Way has been forced to reduce agency allocations for the second year in a row.

The concert is open to everyone and will feature The Cartells, a popular Connecticut band that plays at concerts, nightclubs, and weddings. Learn more about The Cartells by visiting their website,

Tickets are now on sale for $42.55 per person and $87.75 for the mezzanine level. Go to the Infinity Hall website or call the Infinity Hall box office at 1-800-666-6306 to purchase tickets. The venue also features a bistro restaurant to enjoy before or after the concert.

You will be given a free raffle ticket, which will entitle you to with a chance to receive a free CD of the The Cartells music.

>It’s easier than ever to See, Click, Fix

>We were excited earlier this year to bring you SeeClickFix, an interactive mapping program on RegisterCitizen.Com that allows you to report neighborhood problems such as potholes, speeding, graffiti or crime, simply by clicking the location on a map and explaining what’s wrong.

The problem gets reported to public officials, and is visible for your neighbors and other interested parties to see.
Well, now we’ve made it even easier. Now right on the home page of RegisterCitizen.Com is a listing of the most recently reported problems in the area, with an easy button enabling you to “echo” your concern about it, and to follow the progress the community is making in getting it fixed by adding your email address for future alerts.
Current hot button items include complaints about the left-turn signal at a traffic light on Kennedy Drive in Torrington, and a big pothole on Charles Street.
Try it, or just look around. You’ll be amazed at how many others have already noticed problems happening in your neighborhood.

>As usual, The Register Citizen will have a booth at the annual Northwest Connecticut Chamber of Commerce Home Show this weekend at the Torrington Armory.

This year, our booth will feature a free drawing for the chance to win an iPad, the tablet computer from Apple that has captivated consumers over the past few weeks.

There’s no obligation. Just come on down, say hello at our booth, and fill out an entry form.

We’ll have the usual stuff for kids and adults, as well, candy, balloons, copies of the newspaper and more.

The show runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at 153 South Main St. in Torrington.

I will be there most of the weekend myself, and would love the opportunity to hear your thoughts, concerns and ideas about The Register Citizen.
