Veterans Oasis

Last Updated Oct 2012

The Veterans Oasis is a dedicated room in S411 of Joseph V. Cistulli Student Center where veterans can meet, study, network and share experiences.

In February of 2010, the room was remodeled thanks to the following donations:

Debbie and Michael Albert of Pilgrim Furniture City donated living and dining room pieces, artwork and accessories. They also assisted with the design of the room.

Wal-Mart of Naugatuck and Wal-Mart of Waterbury partnered to donate a 55” flat screen television.

Doug DuPont, owner of Connecticut Appliance and Fireplace Distributors donated a new countertop and sink.

Veterans Carl Michaud and George Schnyer of Northwest Carpentry of Litchfield donated their time and labor to install the countertop and sink.

Ken and Sue Petruzzi of Naugatuck Window and Glass donated time and labor for the repair of a glass display cabinet, which is currently displays veterans’ memorabilia.

The Mercury Group provided network wiring and installation.

The Cheshire Women's Club provided much needed financial assistance to help alleviate overall cost.
