firm's third annual Week of Caring this spring. Volunteers hosted a bingo game at
the Northend Senior Center in Hartford, provided landscaping cleanup of an over-
grown vegetable garden and visited with residents during a picnic at the Depart-
ment of Veterans Affairs in Rocky Hill, weeded and planted vegetables in 13 raised
beds at the Chrysalis Center Railway Gardens, and painted and landscaped at Tara
Farm in Coventry.
Thomas F. Scanlon, a partner with Borgida &
Company, with offices in Manchester, Storrs,
and Niantic, recently made a presentation to
an enrichment class of sixth graders at Frank-
lin Elementary School in North Franklin. The
class introduces students to The Stock Mar-
ket Game, the basics of researching/choosing
stocks, and how to trade in The Stock Market
Game.
Teacher Matt Walsh had requested Tom's pre-
sentation through SIFMA's "Invest It Forward"

across the U.S. It is an industry-wide financial
education and capital markets literacy initiative
convening financial firms that are committed to
giving young Americans a solid understanding
