This year we are doing a holiday project and are asking our tenants to participate. We love helping the community and hope that with our tenants’ help we can successfully pass along holiday cheer to other community members.
We have partnered with Toys for Tots this year. The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas presents to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted. The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will help them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens. We are collecting various new toys to donate to Toys for Tots. Check out the flyer below to see how you can help!
We love being part of this community and we hope that others will share in helping us give back to it this holiday season. Since we live and work in Trumbull CT, we want to make sure our impact on this community is a positive one. Stop by or call the office to see how you can help give back with us this holiday season!

Trumbull Day 2014
Mark your calendar for Saturday, June 28th
for Trumbull Day 2014!
Originally established in 1972 to celebrate the Town of Trumbull’s 175th Anniversary, Trumbull Day is a fun-filled family event highlighting the best of what Trumbull has to offer – - from its people to businesses to non-profits and other local organizations.
As Valentine’s Day is approaching, we take time to appreciate our loved ones. We wanted to let you know that we appreciate you, our tenants and community members in Trumbull! It’s important to be reminded of each other’s health; heart health to be specific. There is no better time to start being heart conscious. We comprised tips to make sure you are heart healthy this year!
Get Plenty of Sleep
Sleep seems to be easily neglected as other things take priority. Its important to go to bed at a consistent time and before midnight. Studies have shown that going to bed before midnight and for at least seven and a half hours has improved the overall health of the average human. One discovery found was cardiovascular risks for those who go to bed after midnight. There are increased risks of stroke, heart disease, and myocardial infarction. There are many more health risks beyond just the cardiovascular risks that are involved such as obesity, insomnia, weak immune system, and even cancer. Listen to your body and make the healthy choice of going to bed!
Eat Healthy Foods
Eating healthy isn’t as convenient as it should be for most Americans. It is important to watch the quality of food being consumed as well as the quantity. Stay away from the fast food restaurants as well as any pre-made foods in the grocery store. Watch out for foods that are high in sodium and fats as those are harmful for your heart. Changing your diet can improve your heart’s health immensely. Don’t let your hunger sway you from eating healthy!
Drink Plenty of Water
It’s important to keep your body hydrated, with pure and simple water. Do your best to decrease the amount of soda and other drinks with lots of sugar and caffeine that you may drink daily. Caffeine from energy drinks can overwork your heart especially if your heart isn’t in top shape. Water should be your default drink when you get thirsty throughout the day. Drinking water in place of other beverages is an easy way to start your way to a healthy heart.
Take a Break from Technology
Technology is always improving and seems to be speeding up the lives of millions of people as more and more things come out. Technology was first invented to get things done faster with the intention of freeing up personal time. It has now taken up more time than ever causing many people to have added an extra unnecessary stress as they try to keep up with everything. The human heart can only take so much stress. Take a break from the technology that demands so much of your time. Whether it’s an hour out of your day or an entire day once a month, get away from your technology and clear your head. You will feel the stress leave you the more you take breaks from your phone and computer. Stress is not good for the health of your heart, don’t let it overtake you. Take a break from the things that bring you stress.
Give your heart a workout as you work out. Raising your pulse is important to keep your heart strong. Medical professionals are getting concerned with how many people are excessively sitting every day. Sitting is the new smoking in the United States. Researchers are finding out how bad it is for people to be sitting all day and the effects are not good. Sitting too long means you aren’t burning the calories that you are consuming which turn to fat causing your heart to work harder. Get up out of your chair and move around for every hour you’re sitting. Find something physical that you enjoy doing. Your heart will love you for it and you’ll feel great having done it.
