From the Basement to $1 Billion in Norwalk

datto office
We have focused heavily on growing not only jobs in Connecticut, but on growing forward-looking, high-paying industries that will lead to strong future economic growth. Austin McChord and his company, Datto, are a perfect example of the types of entrepreneurs and companies Connecticut is growing. Check out the Hartford Courant's profile of this Norwalk super-success story: From The Basement To $1 Billion: Connecticut Man Turns Startup Into State's First 'Unicorn'. Way to go, Datto!

This Saturday: Maritime Aquarium's Annual "Salute Norwalk Days"

Senator Duff at Maritime AquariumThe Maritime Aquarium's annual "Salute Norwalk Days," the popular family attraction thanks the residents of Norwalk for their support by offering free admission to city residents is tomorrow. (Proof of residency is required.)

Admission--which includes one of four breathtaking 40-minute IMAX movies--regularly is $22.95 for adults, $20.95 for youths (13-17) & seniors (65+), and $15.95 for children (3-12).

Also, Norwalk residents receive a 10 percent discount in the Aquarium Gift Shop on "Salute Norwalk Day."

In addition to welcoming Norwalk residents on Dec. 3, the Aquarium also will be hosting "Shark-Diving Santa" at 12:15 and 2:15 p.m. Santa Claus will squeeze into his scuba gear and join the Aquarium's volunteer dive team in the "Ocean Beyond the Sound" exhibit to dispel myths about sharks, including the featured 7-foot sand tiger and lemon sharks. Santa will swim up to the exhibit window so bring your camera for a unique "photo with Santa."

For more information about Maritime Aquarium offerings in December, or to reserve tickets or to purchase an Aquarium Membership for yourself or as a holiday gift, call 203-852-0700 or go online to www.maritimeaquarium.org.
