Featured in the Hartford Courant, some Point O’ Woods residents taking the plunge!
It is with great sadness that we inform you that Jeff Keish, the Point O’Woods facilities manager for over 20 years, passed away Wednesday after a courageous battle with cancer. Our sympathy and prayers go out to his wife Kim and family.
Jeff went beyond being a dedicated, thoughtful employee of Point O’Woods to being a valued friend and neighbor, committed to our community. His untold contributions have allowed us to enjoy our time at Point O’Woods.
Calling hours will be held Monday Dec. 29th from 6-8 pm at Thomas Neilan Funeral Home, 48 Grand Street in Niantic. There will be a brief obituary in The Day paper this Sunday (12/21) and then the full one will be on the Friday (12/26) after Christmas. (http://www.neilanfuneralhome.com/)
A committee has been formed consisting of Mark Stankiewicz, Fred Callahan, Bill Lacy, Jack Gibson and Bud Phelps. This committee will hold a Celebration of Life for Jeff at POW in late July or early August. If anyone has any questions, or would like to volunteer to help, please contact Fred Callahan (860) 209 – 2944

Over the years Point O’ Woods customers have requested greater flexibility in the activation and deactivation of their seasonal water service with Connecticut Water. We are pleased to inform you that beginning this fall, customers will be able to shut-off their water service on a date of their choosing through the operation of their own ‘stop & waste’ valve.
The water main remains active all year long so it is important that the water to your property be turned off to protect your plumbing from freezing or causing damage to your property. if you have any questions, please contact our customer service department at:1-800-286-5700
