SEPT. 24, 2015 – WEST HARTFORD, Conn. – In honor of ITNCentralCT‘s 10,000th ride and the 20th anniversary of the Independent Transportation Network as a whole, the Town Council of West Hartford declared Sept. 24, 2015 to be “ITNCentralCT Day.”
Mayor Scott Slifka presented ITNCentralCT Executive Director Kevin Farmer with the Proclamation at the West Hartford Town Council Meeting at the West Hartford Town Hall. Watch a video of the presentation from 42:58 to 48:18 here.
ITNCentralCT‘s Kevin Farmer, upon accepting the Proclamation, stated: “Our greatest need is to grow so we can serve our community. We need additional volunteers and financial supporters, and this proclamation will help us along that pathway.”
West Hartford’s Town Council has been instrumental in bringing the Independent Transportation Network to Connecticut, and specifically in promoting and supporting ITNCentralCT‘s mission of providing sustainable, community-based transportation services for seniors and adults with visual impairment, thereby preserving and promoting independence. ITNCentralCT provides safe, affordable, arm-through-arm, door-through-door rides any time, for any reason.
Mayor Slifka, and former Mayor Jonathan Harris, started working with ITNAmerica in 2003. This collaboration led to the creation of ITNCentralCT, which first started giving rides in April 2009. ITNCentralCT is headquartered in Room 216 in West Hartford Town Hall, and enjoys financial and volunteer support throughout its fifteen-town service area, from Middletown in the south, to West Hartford in the north.
