On June 17th, Charles Toyota joined All Paws on Deck, a local animal rescue organization, to host a dog adoption event in our showroom! The Adopt-A-Thon was a grand success, bringing together animal enthusiasts and prospective pet parents from the community. Thanks to the joint efforts of Charles Toyota and All Paws on Deck, prospective pet parents had the opportunity to interact with the animals, learn about their unique personalities, and find their perfect match. All Paws On Deck brought an array of adorable puppies and dogs with their own unique personalities. As attendees arrived, they were drawn right to the high-energy puppies who were running and playing in their pens. The sight of wagging tails, joyful laughter, and new beginnings warmed the hearts of all involved as puppies found their forever homes. We extend our sincere gratitude to All Paws On Deck for their tireless efforts in rescuing and rehoming animals in need. We also thank our community for their support and for making this event a resounding success, and we look forward to hosting more events like this in the future.
Thank you to all who attended and to all who helped make this event happen! We were so happy to see such a great turnout and we really enjoyed being able to share this time with so many members of our community. We hope to see you all again next year!

“We spent this morning saying a much-deserved 'thank you' to our local military service members at our 10th Annual Military Appreciation Breakfast. Through the support of our sponsors, General Dynamics Electric Boat, Dunkin', and Foxwoods, we invited over 140 active duty members as our special guests. Eastern Connecticut and our entire country are made stronger by the bravery and sacrifice of these men and women and their families. We also presented the Military Community Support Awards to Antonino Auto Group (large business category) and Cardinal Honda (small business category).”- The Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut
We had over 100 vehicles stop by to honor the memory of Harold Winslow. The delicious food was provided by our returning friends Mr. Hot Dog and Bridge Market. Vanishing Breed, a local country and southern rock band, entertained us with their exciting and fun show. The East Great Plain Volunteer Fire Department came back for their 3rd year in a row and allowed the kids to explore their truck. There were great prizes for everyone to enter in such as gift cards, trips to Block Island and Six Flags, and much more.
