Longtime Ridgefielders Bessie Krysiewich and Chip Neumann were honored by the Ridgefield chapter of Regional Hospice and Home Care of Western Connecticut with the first annual Leadership Award, presented at its fall breakfast recently at the Ethan Allen Hotel.
Mr. Neumann is co-owner of family-run Neumann Real Estate and has organized two successful golf tournaments to benefit Regional Hospice and Home Care, with the help of an active and dedicated committee.
Ms. Krysiewich was a founding member of the chapter and has been a major force in organizing the breakfast event each year since it began more than 20 years ago.
George Mulvaney of Ridgefield, board chairman of Regional Hospice and Home Care, joined in the breakfast.
