Thames Valley Communications (TVC) has signed on as the exclusive Presenting Sponsor for the Groton Parks and Recreation 2014 summer special events. Through this relationship, TVC will have a presence at events including the Summer SoundWaves Concert Series at Esker Point Beach, Tour de Noank 5k road race, and Thames River Celebration on the Thames.

The exclusive Presenting Sponsor level is the highest level of sponsorship for the summer events and is the next step in the relationship between the cable TV, Internet, and phone provider and the Parks and Recreation department. This past fall, TVC sponsored the Wifi connection at William Seely School, providing free wireless Internet where the majority of Groton Parks and Recreation programs are held.

“We are pleased that Thames Valley Communication has chosen to partner with Groton Parks and Recreation,” said Mark Berry, Director of Groton Parks and Recreation. “This partnership is just another example of TVC’s commitment to the Groton community.”

William Pearson, CEO of TVC agreed. “Thames Valley is thrilled to support Groton Parks and Recreation. As a local business, this opportunity gives us a chance to give back to our customers, and we look forward to supporting and investing in our community for many years to come.”Groton Parks and Recreation’s summer special events offer family friendly entertainment at the Summer SoundWaves Concert Series at Esker Point Beach and the Thames River Celebration on the Thames, and friendly competition with the Tour de Noank 5k Road Race and Kids Fun Run. More information about these events and more can be found at www.GrotonRec.com.

TVC is a cable TV, Internet and phone provider, serving Gales Ferry, Groton, Mystic, Stonington and Pawcatuck. Since TVC was acquired from the City of Groton in February 2013, the new owners have invested heavily in the company to improve products and services, and make TVC a strong competitive alternative to Comcast. Upgrades have included adding a large Video on Demand system as well as vastly improving Internet speeds, which are faster and less expensive than their competitor’s comparable offers. More information on the company is available at www.TVCconnect.com.
