By Shari L. Covino

The Second Annual Business Expo held on Saturday, October 1st and hosted by The Marlborough Business Association, presented more than twenty-five businesses who greeted visitors throughout the day demonstrating their products and services. Many were repeat Expo exhibitors. Other new exhibits, like Jessica’s Garden, a newly opened business of landscaping and garden design and winner of the best appearing exhibit, were on hand to offer demonstrations, catalogs, or services to the public.

Among the many booths on display, there was something for everyone. VNAEast offered flu shots to people in need for seniors and the young alike. Silpada Designs proudly presented a grand selection of jewelry, along with BlueMoon Designs from East Haddam, while Mary Kay Cosmetics had a wide array of cosmetics available. The Marlborough Tavern offered New England Clam Chowder to visitors along with displaying its ad for its Oktoberfest bash coming up in October at the Tavern. Glastonbury Family Chiropractic discussed spinal concerns to anyone interested and humbly displayed a human spine to demonstrate how subluxation affects an otherwise healthy spine. Financial experts from Gateway Financial, Langlois Consulting Group, LLC and mortgage specialists Ryan Mortgage were busy openly talking to the public about the services they provide. The Pampered Chef offered its selection of cookware for hosting home cookware parties. Gilpages Web Design, LLC, presented a town of Marlborough slideshow and HarryCo was available to talk about computer repairs. New dentist, Kullen Gallagher, DMD of Marlborough Family Dental, PC greeted visitors announcing his transition to the community.

“There is a good mix of exhibits,” said one resident passing through the school’s Community Room and on her way to the Sonitrol Communications booth.

More events of the day - the RHAM High School DECA Club and the RHAM Video Production Club – made their way through the Expo interviewing businesses for its production, soon to be broadcast on CVC Public Access. A scholarship presented to RHAM Senior, Kalil Lane, was awarded as a result of the achievements he received in the school’s business program. As part of another business awareness program, students also from Elmer Thienes Elementary School 6th grade class arrived with a list of interview questions for businesses in an effort to learn more about the Town’s businesses and how businesses generally operate.
