The Channel 3 Kids Camp is holding its annual gala on Nov 4 at the Aqua Turf. The camp has developed living skills, provided educational opportunities and fresh air to kids for over one hundred years. Like all nonprofits, the Kids Camp is dependent on successful fundraisers like to continue operating. We hope you will join the team at CRIS Radio in supporting the event, while having some fun of our own. More information can be found on the camp's website.

CRIS Radio's 19th Annual Golf Classic was played at Tunxis Plantation on October 5. A perfect day of golf was had by the 88-strong field, old friends and new. Thanks to emcee Scot Haney, title sponsor Tim Parker and New Country Auto, all of our sponsors, golfers, volunteers and the staff at Tunxis Plantation. Looking forward to seeing everyone next year for the 20th Classic!
More pictures to follow soon both here and on the CRIS Facebook Page.
Volunteers from around the state came together on September 20 to celebrate their dedication to Connecticut's only radio reading service for people with disabilities. Volunteers with 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 years of service were honored.
Thank you to all who give their time to make CRIS possible!

CRIS is excited to announce the launch of our new website. While you may not notice a big difference, we hope that it improves your online CRIS experience.
Our primary goal with our new website was to improve accessibility for people with disabilities, including those who are blind and have low vision, deafness and hearing loss, learning disabilities, cognitive limitations, limited movement, speech disabilities, photo-sensitivity and combinations of various disabilities.
