No Jerks Allowed

Fun Times at the Annual Connectria Family Picnic


The Annual Connectria Family Picnic was held on August 25th this year. A fun time was had by all who attended, especially the kids who enjoyed face painting, balloon animals and a caricature artist. Other activities included a kickball game, washers tournament, cookie contest and relay games. Classic picnic food consisted of fried chicken and all the fixins, as well as a visit from the ice cream truck for dessert.

Best of all, Connectria employees were able to hang out with their work buddies outside of the office and meet their family members. The No Jerks Allowed message rang clear with “No Jerks” cookies, stickers, tattoos, and face painting. Many people commented about not wanting to wait until next year for another washers tournament, so plans are in the works for more washers games at the park.

Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure


Connectria’s Community Initiatives Committee in conjunction with the company’s Fitness Committee is pleased to sponsor this year’s Susan G. Koman St. Louis Race for the Cure.

We invite each of you, your spouse, kids and friends to join us on Saturday, June 14, 2014, in downtown St. Louis for this great cause.

According to The National Breast Cancer Foundation, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. If you, a friend, or a loved one has been impacted by breast cancer, please join the Connectria Community Initiatives Committee in supporting breast cancer awareness and research. Bring your spouse, kids and friends! The more the merrier!

The Komen Race for the Cure Series is the largest series of 5K runs/fitness walks in the world. The Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure® raises funds for the local fight against breast cancer, celebrates breast cancer survivorship, and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease.

Seventy-five percent of the net funds raised through the Race stays in the St. Louis community to fund innovative breast health and breast cancer screening, education and support programs. The remaining 25 percent goes toward groundbreaking national breast cancer research programs, including vital research being done right here in St. Louis.


No Jerks Allowed in Wisconsin



Successful Autism Benefit!


Connectria’s Community Initiatives Committee (CCIC) wants to share with each of you that Saturday’s event to benefit Autism was a great success.

Connectria Hosting had thirty-two employees and guests invited representing our sales, marketing, finance and operations groups. Connectria had the largest corporate showing among all participants.

It was a fun evening with Corrine Chapman and her guest John walking away as winners of the 50/50 drawing. Dustin Mathews also won a prize and John Smythe and his wife Theresa were the high bidders on several of the evening’s silent auction items among others in the group.

Amanda Doolittle and Mike Solomonov also did a fine job with signage showing Connectria’s support for Mo-FEAT.

Sharon Moeller, Executive Director of Mo-FEAT, reached out to Connectria, its employees and invited guests to thank all for their support and participation. Mo-FEAT was very pleased with Connectria’s showing as this was their 1st annual trivia night fundraiser and our participation was very important to its success.
