Tell us about your community building activities in 2020?

2020 was obviously focused on survival. Both for my Miles Finch Innovation business and our clients as well as my Makery Coworking business, which suffered greatly during the pandemic. Our offices are located on Bank Street, so we did our best to offer the community events and services to help bring people together responsibly. One example was launching an outdoor music series called Street Music, which provided ambient live music for outdoor restaurant patrons on Bank Street during the summer.

What community building goals did you accomplish or milestones did you hit in 2020?

We helped Litchfield Distillery navigated its successful pivot early in 2020 to manufacture and promote its free hand sanitizer. As noted above, we planned and executed multiple live musical performances on Bank Street to create a "normal" ambience for outdoor dinners and take advantage of the town closing down Bank Street on Friday and Saturday nights.
