Morgan, 23 years young, will spend the upcoming months preparing for her journey to compete for the Miss America crown. The national pageant for Miss America which will take place in las Vegas in January 2012 stresses self-confidence, talent, personal growth and community service as well as academics.

Ms. Amarone is well versed in pageant activities having run twice before in 2006 and in 2008. Prior to taking the leap onto the Miss Connecticut stage, she competed in a local pageant in Southington, CT in October of 2010 which led her to advocating on behalf of cancer prevention and awareness. She also speaks to kids about health lifestyle, and recently published a book entitled “Madison’s Journey,” which describes the journey of the book’s title character as she experiences and learns to understand the plight of a friend, Sophie. Madison’s tale is one of loving friendship, caring and understanding. It is a brilliant story, and offers a valuable tool for parents, caregivers and anyone in the medical field assisting children facing illness. Morgan is donating the proceeds of the book to the American Cancer Society. For further info, visit the Bryson Taylor Publishing website. Read More→

Okay, no more excuses. This is the year you promised yourself to get back in shape, remember? I know going to the gym can get dull and running by yourself isn’t very exciting, but I’ve found something that promises to be fun, a great workout and a place where you can go with friends, or make new ones near the Stamford apartments at Morningside Gardens.

You can play or learn to play tennis this season at Oak Hills Tennis Club. It’s located on Fillow Street, which is just about 5 minutes away from our Morningside Gardens Apartments on Prospect Street. It’s an exceptional facility where you can improve your skills, play tournaments, and get world-class instruction in a fun and relaxed environment. And best of all, Oak Hills Tennis Club is a public facility open to all!

You can choose from a wide variety of adult programs geared toward helping you become the best tennis player you can be. There are specialty programs such as Cardio Tennis – a great work out and you don’t have to spend all your time at the gym, $25 per person due before play. Or, there’s the Stroke of the Day which will provide an opportunity to improve your tennis game by working on a different stroke each day. These clinics will be held throughout the season, $25 per person due before play. And, there’s also some Adult Clinics available throughout the season, weekdays or weekends, whichever fits your schedule better. Read More→

The grounds at our Morgan Manor and Hoyt-Bedford Apartment communities never looked so green and lush to me as they do now. If you haven’t already, you really should take some time in the evening to get out of these Stamford rentals and stroll around the grounds to enjoy the beautiful flower beds and shady bricked walkways. And, the Townhouse Apartments on Prospect Street are wearing their season’s best with the sidewalk plantings in full bloom. The Townhouse residents are also perfectly situated to take advantage of the farmer’s markets that take place every Saturday morning, just across the street.

But to really appreciate Stamford in the summer, I recommend you pack up the car and head to one of our four beaches. All are just a few minute’s drive from any of our downtown Stamford apartments. You can spend a few minutes or spend an entire day – it’s up to you. Read More→
