For the past five years, Connecticut Insurance Exchange, Ltd. has been welcoming players to the Newington Veteran Firefighter’s Association (NVFA) annual Golf Tournament as the tournament’s Platinum Sponsor. They provide delicious mini donuts and bagels, and a major raffle prize.
This year, the tournament was held on Friday, June 9th at Stanley Golf Course in New Britain. Just before the shotgun start, Newington Veteran Firefighter’s Association (NVFA) Golf Committee Member Mike Iskra presented Connecticut Insurance Exchange President Ron Tregoning with a plaque thanking him for the many years of support. Iskra explained, “We’re very fortunate and thankful to have Connecticut Insurance Exchange supporting our event each year. We wanted to honor Ron and his staff with this plaque to show him how much we appreciate all they do for us and the community.”
“When the NVFA Golf Committee approached me to become a Platinum Sponsor five years ago, it was easy to say yes,” commented Tregoning. “As a Newington business owner for 40 years, I believe it is important to give back to the community. The Newington Veteran Firefighter’s have done so much for our town. Connecticut Insurance Exchange is proud to support them.”
The NVFA tournament raises funds for an annual Newington High School scholarship, which goes toward young men and women who choose a career in firefighting, and to minimize the costs associated to run events supporting Newington firefighter veterans.
Connecticut Insurance Exchange, Ltd. — located at 112 Market Square in Newington — has been serving the insurance needs of over 5,000 individuals, families and businesses since 1977.
