CLEAR RIVER FUEL'S STORIED HISTORY...PLUS, LOCAL MOM STARTS HER OWN FLORAL DESIGN BUSINESS

HERE’S THE SCOOP…



THE "COOL" STORY BEHIND CLEAR RIVER FUEL


We love a good 'behind the business' story and this sure is one of them. Dan Rolfe served 10 years in the U.S. Air Force and another 10 years in the Aerospace Manufacturing industry before launching his own fuel delivery business. Clear River Fuel was an extension of Dan's brother's Heating & Air Conditioning business. Dan literally built the business from the ground up offering a different experience for fuel heat customers. Clear River Fuel was founded on the principle of providing a customer focused, more efficient heating oil delivery experience. Dan loves his customers, but frankly, his customers love him. Dan is incredibly likeable with a sincere nature about him (asks you about the family, the kids, your life, your job)...He simply cares and it shows. We love that he uses the words "cool" and "awesome" to describe just about everything...gives off kind of that surfer vibe. Dan lived in Okinawa Japan for three years and also loves visiting Ireland (he has been 23 times...his wife is from there). They raised 3 kids in Glastonbury and he loves listening to LIVE music with them. He is also an avid boater, motorcycle enthusiast, and Drone photographer. He considers his Clear River Fuel team family and he treats them as such. Clear River Fuel offers an auto-delivery subscription (they monitor tank level so you don't have to) and rapid will call (one-time delivery priced at their everyday low price). They are also constantly looking at innovative ways to save you money including the introduction of a BioHeat blend of heating oil which includes renewable low carbon fuel made from plant oils and recycled grease.

GLASTONBURY MOM LAUNCHES HER OWN FLOWER BUSINESS


Melissa Zimmitti is the kind of person we want to be...calm, intentional, thriving in the things she loves. Those things include home cooked meals, watching episodes of The Pioneer Woman on Food Network, and putting together some of the most stunning floral arrangements we have seen. Melissa took to gardening not too long ago and realized she has an endless love for all things green. She recently launched her own floral business, Harmonic Blooms, out of her home in Glastonbury. The name is a direct result of exactly how gardening and flowers have made her feel: TRANQUIL and in HARMONY. She hopes to bring those same feelings to her clients. We are relaxed and feeling good already, Melissa! She offers floral services for every event (large or intimate weddings, funerals, parties, events, or just-because). Her specialty is the art of flower design, taking into consideration all the different textures and colors when placing flowers. To follow all of her latest creations, check out her Insta HERE or Facebook HERE.
