Not only that, he also understands elderly people and their concerns. They love him and he loves them, because he is one of the most trustworthy, nicest people you will ever meet. PROMISE. So, let's break down exactly what he does...

*Your mom lives alone. You still work. She needs to do her weekly errands, but can't drive...CALL STEVE.


*Your parents want to fly to Florida, but struggle through security at the airport. They need someone to guide them and be there if something goes awry...CALL STEVE.


*You're older, don't like to drive at night or long distances, but have a party, a wedding, or just want to see a friend in another state...CALL STEVE.


*You live out of state, but want your elderly mom or dad to come visit for the holiday (he recently brought a client to Pennsylvania to see family for Thanksgiving)...CALL STEVE.


Guess what he provides that you can never put a price on? PEACE. OF. MIND. Right now, he is offering 20% OFF FOR SCOOP READERS (until Christmas)...20%! He offers full and half day rates. Find him HERE or call him 860.836.6531.



OLD SCHOOL STEAM TRAIN EXPERIENCE COMING TO CAVANNA'S


Remember when we told you that John Cavanna of Cavanna's Farm was building a full-size train track featuring a steam train locomotive on his property? Well...his 1928 Vulcan Ironworks locomotive arrives this week and he will start offering a hands-on train experience this Saturday, December 7th and Sunday, December 8th. For $35, you can operate the steam train...literally climb right in the cab, shovel coal, and be the conductor! Cavanna has big plans for the farm...eventually transforming it into a one-of-a-kind destination with train rides to the "North Pole" in passenger cars he will soon renovate. Those and a log cabin in the woods featuring Santa will be done by Christmas 2020. Truly a magical experience right here in Glastonbury! Stay tuned. CHOO-CHOO!



GLITTER GLASTONBURY TO OPEN AS SPA FOR GIRLS


Opening in February 2020 is a world of fun for girls! Glitter will feature throne chair pedicures, chocolate facials, pink signature drinks, a candy bar, a create your own bath station and a how-to beauty bar for tweens and teens (could they ask for anything more?!). It's owned by Melissa from Polka Dots, which closed YESTERDAY. She was originally moving to another state, but her plans have changed. Glitter will be located at the house on the corner of New London Turnpike and Sycamore (next to Harry's Pizza). Can't wait to see her finished space!



GINGERBREAD WORKSHOP AT WESTFARMS


How fun is this for the holiday season? Westfarms has added a temporary Gingerbread Workshop to their offerings. The pop-up features giant gingerbread houses for kids to see and small ones for them (or anyone) to assemble. You can pick your own decorations and put it together for a fun experience for the whole fam! See pics below.
