Do you have documents, receipts or any sensitive paper materials that you'd like to see obliterated? If you said yes, you need to join the Danbury Rotary Club tomorrow (September 17th). The Rotary Club will be holding it's annual Shred Day event. The event goes from 9 am - Noon at 20 Segar Street AKA the Chuck's Steakhouse parking lot.

So, what might a person have shredded? Here are some examples:

  • Tax documents
  • Anything with your social security number on it
  • Pay stubs
  • Medical records
  • Credit card, debit card, ATM receipts

If you think, maybe I'll put it off, or maybe I'll buy shredder, if either of those thoughts crossed your mind, stop it. You don't need to own a shredder and you know it. Furthermore, you have to stop kicking the can down the road. This event is for a great cause, so not only will you shred your sensitive materials but you'll be helping others at  the same time. The money raised goes to student scholarships and other local causes.

According to the Patch, The Danbury Rotary Club also helps organizations like: Regional Hospice, Ann’s Place, and St. Joseph Parenting Center. What will all this cost you? It's $10 per copier box and you can fill as many of those boxes and bring them down as you'd like. They will be accepting cash and checks and there is no need to remove any staples. That makes it worth the price of admission right there.

I actually went to one of these shred days once, it was kind of fun.

I'm so excited about this event we promoted it on the Ethan and Lou Show on (9/8/22). You can listen to that segment below.

Exploring the Aftermath of the Hideous Inferno at Newtown’s McGuire’s Ale House

According to our earlier reports, the Hawleyville Volunteer Fire Company was the first on the scene, followed by Newtown Hook & Ladder 114. The Firefighter battled a massive blaze at the Newtown building that was once McGuire’s Ale House and Hot Shots II. The F.D.’s brought in an attack line, to fight against the flames and the roof came down.
The dramatic day became big news with locals sharing pictures and videos all over social media. While the Fire Departments were able to finish off the flames, the building was destroyed. 

Drone Captures Crystal Clear Images of Brookfield From High Above

While cruising Youtube recently I found a video that captured my attention, drone footage from high above Brookfield, CT. The video happened to be of a section of Brookfield right above the radio station I've been worked at for 21 years, I-95.
