The Disabled American Veterans, Hardware City Chapter 8 offers its sincerest THANKS TO ALL for a wildly successful Golden Kielbasa Veterans Open on Friday, September 27, 2013! Central Connecticut's No. 1 veterans charity golf event saw 120 golfers, numerous generous sponsors led by Presenting Sponsor Farmington Bank and upwards of 200 total guests at a post-golf barbeque and ceremonies raise $10,000 for DAV Chapter 8, House of Heroes Connecticut and Friends of Fisher House Connecticut.
And, we had the honor and privilege of honoring New Britain's own Connie Nappier, Jr., a member of the famed Tuskegee Airmen!
