12/18/2018 - Project Service LLC Issues $2000 Donation to Fairfield’s Veterans
First Selectman Mike Tetreau is very pleased to announce that two of the town’s veteran’s organizations have each received $1000 from Project Service LLC.
Project Service LLC, which has invested in and operates all 23 Service Plazas located on I-95, I-395 and the Merritt Parkway, had reached out to the First Selectman’s Office in late November inquiring about any local organizations it could donate to during the holiday season as a way to show its appreciation for its neighbors.
Upon First Selectman Tetreau suggesting that each of the town’s American Legions—
George Alfred Smith, CT Post 74 on Reef Road, and Lt. Owen Fish Memorial, CT Post 143 on Stratfield Road— be considered, Project Service LLC enthusiastically responded that it would be delighted to present a check to both veteran’s groups.
A checks presentation ceremony was held on Tuesday at the George Alfred Smith, CT Post 74 on Reef Road in Fairfield. In attendance were First Selectman Mike Tetreau, Michael A. Jones, CEO of Project Service, LLC, Marcus Akhtar, Board Chair, Project Service, LLC, Karen Talamelli Cusick, Treasurer of Project Service LLC, Post 143 Commander Ron Drew and Past Commander Tom Quinn, and Post 74 Adjutant Len Schroeder.
First Selectman Tetreau said, “What a wonderful holiday gift for our veterans! These local heroes do an inordinate amount of good for our community year-round. From organizing Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day programs and events for our community, including our students, to assisting fellow veterans and veteran causes, holding toy drives and so much more, Fairfield’s veterans are most deserving of this very generous donation from Project Service LLC which the Town is very thankful to.”
Karen Talamelli Cusick, Treasurer of Project Service LLC, stated, “Project Service LLC has been pleased to assist various local organizations and charities around Connecticut. It is very rewarding to give back to others and what better way to do so this holiday season than to help our nation’s veterans. This is especially meaningful to me as my father and late husband were Army veterans and members of the American Legion. I witnessed firsthand the amazing work they do in the community. These veterans, who answered the call of duty, have made it a lifetime commitment to which we are most grateful.”
