WEST HARTFORD — When Roszena Haskins and Kerry Jones first heard that their proposed storytelling grant application was approved last November, they were ecstatic. With a $50,000 Inspiring Equity grant from the William Caspar Graustein Memorial Fund, the grant coordinators set out to find a unique approach to bring the community together through the lens of individual and collective stories. Now, one year later, the product of this initiative will be unveiled in a high-tech, multi-media exhibit that will be shared on Dec. 14 and 16, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., at the Town Hall Auditorium, 50 South Main Street. The exhibit is free and open to all.

BRANFORD, CT -- At 16 years old, Branford Early Childhood Collaborative (BECC), once a grassroots group, is evolving to meet its continuing mission. Now in the process of becoming a 501 (c)3 non-profit, BECC also has a newly established, 15-person Board of Directors chaired by Dr. Bruce Storm Ed.D. The new direction grew out of a change in funding support. For many years, BECC was largely funded with support from the Graustein Memorial Fund and operated under the umbrella of United Way of Greater New Haven.
