Congratulations to University of Hartford President, Walter Harrison, for receiving a leadership award from the MetroHartford Alliance at the their recent Rising Star Breakfast that was held on June 8, 2017.
On Tuesday, May 23, 2017, Marilyn Risi (7 from the right), Executive Director of Upper Albany Main Street participated in a ‘Step Up To The Plate’ celebration hosted by the MetroHartford Alliance. As part of their 2017 Annual Celebration, members from the Hartford Community were invited to the new Yard Goats Stadium in Hartford, CT to partake in a luncheon and networking event.
Upper Albany Merchants Association (UAMA) is honored to congratulate Terry Waller, owner of TNT Barber Shop, located at 130 Homestead Avenue, on their grand opening. With help from a student in the University of Hartford’s Micro Business (MBI) program, the business is now on track as a provider of hair styling and other beauty treatments to men and boys within the Hartford community and its surrounding towns.
“Whenever social justice issues are debated, one question always comes up: Is there any hope?” says Director & Visionary, Faithlyn Johnson, also an Upper Albany Merchants Association member. “This show motivates us to reject the many excuses to give up, when everyone is pushing you to accept ‘what’s done is done. If we don’t, who will?”
This broadway style production will leave the audience mesmerized and motivated to make a STAND! STAND the musical, will explore social-justice subjects pulled from today’s culture and headlines! We STAND with Hartford Youth… where do you STAND?
Not to be missed, this case brings high energy and a rawness that is hard and rare to capture on stage. The ausnace will laugh, cry and dance but most importantly, they will wrestle with the human struggle in all of us to do the right thing. Despite adversity, we must STAND! The majority of the case is from the local Hartford community and uses ActUp Theater as a safe haven and place to grow.
