Colchester, CT Celebrates First Annual Nametag Day

What makes Colchester, CT so unique? On Monday, September 26th (yesterday) Colchester celebrated its first annual Nametag Day. According to the Nametag Day website, it was an effort to continue to find new and innovative ways to help people make connections and to welcome new people into the community. It was sponsored by Colchester Parks and Recreation, with the creative help of my friend Jay Cohen. And here's the cool part: at the bottom of their website, they have the following note...

"What was your experience while wearing your nametag? Write up a brief summary and email it to parks&rec@colchesterct.org to be entered into a drawing for a complimentary 4 pack of movie passes to Gallery Cinemas. Please submit your entry before Monday, October 3rd. Have fun!"

Maybe I'll move from St. Louis to Colchester. It sounds like my kind of town.


If your town had a Nametag Day, would you participate?
