In keeping with the Chamber’s mission of “Connecting The Community With Commerce” this Calendar was created to allow member businesses and New Canaan based non-profits to promote their upcoming events to the public. The Community Calendar is a local resource for all residents and visitors and has quickly become one of the most visited pages on the site. Events can be submitted via the link below and will be reviewed and posted within 24-48 hours.

The idea was spawned in 2009 by Ron and Tina Rosenfeld who were surprised at the number of individuals with Autism who came into the store. In their ongoing efforts to give back to the community, Ron and Tina and SPED*Net saw an opportunity to extend their mission of health and fitness into the community. In August 2009, the first race was successfully held. Ron and Tina have a long history of promoting health and fitness in the community. As owners of the Athletes Foot on Summer Street in Stamford for the past 25 years, they have sponsored many fundraisers, including Wheelchair Athletes. Their efforts have been instrumental in raising awareness and money for a variety of organizations.
