Fishing for Norwich Harbor 4/3/16

Posted to Fishing in Norwich by Josh Pothier

There isn’t much to report at this time. There have been reports of bunker in the harbor area. With cold temps fishing is still hit and miss. It is now less than a week before opening day for our trout fishing friends. This year is the first no closed fishing season on the Yantic River from Norwich Harbor to Indian Leap Falls. The Norwich Harbor Management Commission wishes to pass along the following. There will be a June 11th Kayak trip up the Yantic River guided by Tucker Braddock departing from Thayer’s Marine. The Rock the Docks series will be kicking off with Eight to the Bar on July 6, 2016. For the following five Wednesday nights there will be music from 6-8 PM. Also the Friday night acoustic series was relocated from the harbor to the Norwichtown green.  Please visit the Norwich Chamber's website for more information. 

On September 10th The Norwich Harbor Management Commission along with Thayer’s Marine will be hosting a fishing derby on the Thames River from 5 AM-noon. Stay tuned for more details. Tight lines and we wish all of you a great fishing and boating 2016.

Girard Ford

Posted to Mayor Hinchey's Blog by Deb Hinchey

Everyone loves a Mustang or a big truck.  Well, the “Team” visited Girard Ford at 450 West Thames Street.  We met with Marty Hall, Scott Roys and Bob.  We toured their facility and show room.  Beautiful and plenty of terrific cars and trucks were found!  Girard Ford provides regional Ford sales and services and is devoted to customer service.  They have been in Norwich since the 60’s.

Girard has a large service department.  They employ 87 people.  Their commitment to service is such that they have a second shift service department to accommodate shift work customers.  How great is that?  Our Norwich businesses continue to provide what our citizens and workers need.
