​Benson’s Race
Reading by author Marilyn Clements-Blackstone Library (Auditorium)
Wednesday December 7th at 3:00 PM

​Benson is a Siberian husky, training hard for the Iditarod. But not everyone racing is as honest as Benson's trainer. While crossing a dangerous stretch, Benson will find Rosie, a red-furred husky dognapped by Zelda, the evil musher. Can Benson save her? And will rescuing her cost him the race? Addressing family, work ethics, responsibility, and tolerance of others, this touching, yet action-packed story teaches valuable lessons we all must learn. The characters come alive through magnificent illustrations.

enson's Race is recommended for fourth through sixth graders, but is wonderful for reading to younger children as well.

A business woman , professional speaker and Publisher of The Breeze magazine, Marilyn works hard to find the magic that life holds, and never stops reaching for her dreams.

​Connex Credit Union Assists Guilford Boy Scout’s Quest to Restore
Local Landmark with More than $900 Donation to Save the Shack
Donations collected through the Coins-for-Change program at Guilford branch 
​Manager of Connex Credit Union’s Guilford Branch Kerry Perrotta (left) presents Save the Shack Coordinator John Markowski (right) with a check worth $939.48. The funds were raised through Connex’s Coins-for-Change program
​GUILFORD, Conn. (Nov. 22, 2016) – Contributions from visitors at Connex Credit Union’s Guilford Branch during the third quarter of 2016 have helped support the restoration of a local landmark.  As a part of its philanthropic program ConnexCares, Connex Credit Union recently donated more than $900 from the fees collected by Connex’s coin-cashing machine at their Guilford Branch to the Save the Shack initiative.

The Coins-for-Change program charges a five percent fee to members, a seven percent fee to non-members and donates this money to charitable organizations in the local community, contributing more than $10,000 annually. 

“I would like to sincerely thank Connex Credit Union for its generous donation to Save the Shack,” said John Markowski, coordinator, Save the Shack initiative. “These funds will support the restoration of Guilford’s most iconic landmark, the Grass Island Shack, which is renowned for being the second most painted and photographed building on the East Coast.”
Guilford Boy Scout John Markowski created Save the Shack in September 2015 as an Eagle Scout Project to support necessary repairs for the town’s iconic Grass Island Shack.  This initiative was developed to restore, preserve and beautify the landmark. Once the project is complete, Markowski will use any additional dollars to create a fund at the Guilford Foundation for future maintenance.
