Intern Update #2

Intern Update #2 (6/13/13)
               The past few days have been extremely busy for us here at the DSSD!  Scott has been working very hard to prepare for the ARTWALK, which is happening this Friday and Saturday.  He has been delivering water and wine to the restaurants, working on the logistics, and adding his finishing touches to make sure that everything runs smoothly.  Eric and I were mainly working on the Sculpture Opening Party, which took place on June 11.  We had fun writing the scripts for the trolley tours, picking out the d├ęcor, and finally working at the party.  Now, we have shifted our attention to getting ready for the first Alive@Five concert, which is happening next Thursday. 
At the end of each week of internship, our school asks us to answer a specific question in about 150 words.  This past week, the question was: “How does the work of professionals in your internship field contribute to the community (local, national and/or global)?”   I answered this prompt by saying “The DSSD is an organization in Stamford that is not affiliated with the government in any way. It is sponsored by the companies in Downtown Stamford and is purposed to keep Stamford "alive" and safe. The DSSD sends out eight "ambassadors" to assist pedestrians in the streets of downtown Stamford, and assure their safety. The DSSD runs events such as Alive@Five, the Art Walk, Restaurant Week, the French Market, and many other exciting events that keep people coming out to socialize and support the town of Stamford. The DSSD not only contributes to the community by making it a safer place to be, but it also contributes to the culture of the town. People from all over come to Alive@Five to see major artists, such as Hot Chelle Ray, Howie Day, or Matt Nathanson. The DSSD is a fantastic, privately run organization that contributes to the city of Stamford in many great ways.”  Eric, Scott, and I have all thoroughly enjoyed our time here, and are getting sad as the last few days are rolling in!
