Moore's 1st site marks 20 years
Moore, a physical rehabilitation center, seems to be in great shape despite a slow-growing economy, recently having celebrated its 20th year in Darien.
"We've been blessed with unbelievable support that we've gotten from our patients and clients," said Robert Moore, who founded the center in 1990 in a 4,000-square-foot space at 53 Old King's Highway N. "We don't plan on going anywhere and plan to continue to provide clients with new and expanded services."
In the past two decades, the business has grown to 58 employees with a 3,000-square-foot venue in 1999 at 1250 Summer St., in Stamford, and a third 10,000-square-foot location that opened in 2007 at 37 Danbury Road, in Wilton.

Ohio State Buckeyes come to The Moore Center!
March 22, 2008 – Wilton, CT. Nearly 150 local youth and high school football players, parents and coaches were treated to a rare opportunity to meet James Laurinaitis and Marcus Freeman of the Ohio State Buckeyes at the Moore Center, by special invitation from Wilton’s Kevin Harris.
Kevin Harris, Managing Director NE, of Player Prep Academy put this special program together with the help of John Laurinaitis and The Moore Center. “This was a unique opportunity for athletes to learn about a range of topics: balancing academics and sports, nutrition, fitness, print and media management, combine preparation, the recruiting process and financial IQ,” states Harris. Player Prep Academy was founded to help kids get to the next level in all sports and to educate them on the importance of looking beyond their sport.
These young athletes from Wilton, Westport, Stamford and Monroe left with a great message from the Buckeyes; while both were top prospects to enter the 2008 NFL Draft, they opted to return to Ohio State to finish their senior year and return to their team and their fans, and get their degree.

Movement with a Purpose
Fitness center aims to cross bridge between
physical therapy and fitness.
By KARA O'CONNOR
February 8, 2008; The Wilton Villager
WILTON— Movement with a purpose is what the Moore Center in Wilton is all about, according to the center's president, Craig Wood. The Moore Wilton Center opened up in May 2007 with a brand-new NCAA division 1 caliber all-sports and fitness facility. The center's main goal is to cross the bridge between physical therapy and fitness, Wood said.
"We want to make our environment successful, where you can easily set goals and achieve them," he said. "At the same time it's also a place where we know how to prevent injuries and fix them."
Moore specializes in four different areas; physical therapy, fitness, wellness and ergonomics, which is improving safety in the workplace and reducing work related injuries. "I think we provide a really solid product here," said Wood. "There is a certain energy flow that gives motivation and sets the tone for everyone."

Barbara Bagnato, an engine that never stops!
woman finds joy in volunteering
December 16, 2007;
The Stamford Advocate
Barbara Bagnato moves swiftly, packing potatoes into individual plastic
bags, then heads toward a wall shelf to grab a can of olives. After
greeting a visitor, she runs to the back room to fetch a frozen chicken.
She returns with a bag of food for a waiting client, then turns around
to sort through carrots and stalks of fresh brussels sprouts brought in
by someone from a local food co-op.
It's Monday, Bagnato's
day as a volunteer at the Food Pantry,
a program sponsored by Christian Community
Action in Norwalk.
CCA serves the needy in
the greater Norwalk area. It began in 1972
with a group of parishioners of St. Paul's
on the Green Church in Norwalk
but today the organization is a large
nonprofit, nonsectarian agency with
several diverse programs that provide food and kitchen wares, furniture,
financial assistance and other necessities. The Food Pantry is open
on weekdays and, beginning next year, will
also be open the second Saturday
of every month, to serve the working poor who cannot get there during
the week. Clients come in monthly to pick up about six days' worth
of food for their families - peanut butter,
canned vegetables, pasta,
powdered milk and occasionally, chicken or hot dogs.
