BERLIN, CONN., May 20, 2004 – Yankee Gas Services Company is a Program Sponsor of Eastern Connecticut's Regional Construction Forecast, one of a series of regional presentations hosted by the Construction Institute. The program will be held Thursday, May 27, at the Evans Hall Auditorium at Connecticut College in New London, Connecticut. Registration begins at 7:45 a.m. and the presentation runs from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.

The program, "Looking to the future…Adjusting to the new realities," will focus on capital projects in Eastern Connecticut, providing specifics about current and future projects in both the public and private sectors and on the plans to maintain the region’s continued vitality.

"Yankee Gas is proud to support this program. Eastern Connecticut is a growing region where many of Yankee's largest customers, including the new Lowe's Distribution Center, Electric Boat, Pfizer, Rand Whitney, Frito Lay and the United States Submarine Base, are located, " said Joe Seacrist, Yankee's eastern regional sales manager. "In fact, Yankee is expanding across the eastern portion of the state, bringing natural gas service to East Lyme for the first time. And, with the addition of nine miles of new gas mains along Route 2 from the Foxwoods Casino to North Stonington, many small businesses and homeowners will soon have natural gas as an energy option."
