A letter was presented from Senator Gary LeBeau’s office that congratulated Picture This! portrait studio for opening and thanked them for donating proceeds to the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.

“Congratulations!” said Mayor Matthew Streeter. “I wish your business well and I hope to bring my family here.”
