Hartford – Over 100 people attended the Hezba Annual Luncheon. The event held at the Uptown Vibz Hall in Hartford, Friday.

“There was a time not that far ago, when the black community had to depend more on one another. A time when the good and services we purchase every-day were provided by black businessmen and women. They owned their property and had some control over their future, said Reggie Hales, Hezba President and Inquiring News Publisher.”

The event theme was “Unity is the key to our Survival”.  Which was egcoed by several of the Guest speakers. Which included, Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman, Congressman John Larson and Hartford mayor Segarra.

They agreed that we could over-come and make great strides, if we unite and come together to secure our future.

A special award was presented to Yvon Alexandre, owner of Uptown Vibz, for his dedicated community service as well as his continued work with Haitian earth quake victims. Hales stated to the attendees the importance of increase use of his facilities, compared to using local hotels, which don’t support the black community.

Lt. Gov. Wyman and Congressman Larson’s talking points were well received as they received warm welcomes from local merchants.

The annual event is Hezba’s way to bridge northend business owners and local leaders, so they can all be on the page, as they face shared concern of the county and state.

Mayor Segarra, stated that “it’s not easy being mayor, but he finds the job an honor. We are a great city. My job is made easier, because I have a great team and the best City workers ever”.

Hartford Enterprise ZoneInquiring News will have a more detailed story in next weeks paper and on it’s website, Inqnews.com, prior to next published paper.

Sub-note: Hales stated that he was a bit disappointed that local media did not come to cover, such a positive news story in the black community. But if it were a bad violent story, they would have been there right away. He will soon reach out to the 4 TV stations ‘s news directors about the issue.
