I met Mitch and Dina in 2011 when I moved to Connecticut to work for Pratt & Whitney as a Mechanical Engineer Program Lead. Dina was an organizer for a local social meet-up group. They impressed me as open, kind, trustworthy and proved to be reliable and we became close friends. I look forward to being able to participate in their new venture.

I’ve known Dina and Mitch for a few years now. They are passionate and dedicated entrepreneurs. Open to new ideas, always looking for new trends, opportunities, take a novel perspective on things and are quick to share their findings.

I have served with Mitch on our town Energy Committee for nearly four years. Recognizing him as the kind of smart, deep thinker that I like to have in my life, we soon became close friends. I respect not only his knowledge, but his vision. It came as no surprise, then, when I met his wife Dina, that she is a dynamic go-getter, and that they complement each other perfectly. So it is with great anticipation that I await the unveiling of their new project. I know that it will be great, since they put their heart and soul into everything they do.

I have known Mitch Kennedy and Dina Pelletier for the past twelve plus years and throughout that time, I have found them to be very honest with a high work ethic. It is these qualities and more that led me to appoint Mitch to the town Green Energy Commission. His willingness to serve on a volunteer commission is just one example of Mitch’s character and only one of the ways Mitch and Dina give back to the community.

You can count on Dina and Mitch. They have done so many amazing and creative projects, always for the betterment of the planet and of the people around them. They embody the idea of doing well by doing good. I have watched them run 2 successful businesses. Throughout it all, their integrity and skill have shined through as they have steadfastly refused to take the easy way out in order to manifest their ideals in the real world.

Dina and Mitch have an open minded attitude and a drive for success that is inspiring. I fully support this great initiative!

I’ve known Mitch since he was 14 years old and he would come to my store, New England Hobby Supply, the largest hobby store in New England, where he participated with the construction and operation of one of the 10 largest model railroads in the country. He has always been meticulous, generous, enthusiastic and always willing to help and learn. I have known Dina since they met and I was master of ceremony at their wedding. She is engaging, energetic and helpful. Always willing to assist where needed. Having brought the Valley Railroad from bankruptcy to a $5 million enterprise I know what it takes to run a successful business, knowing and taking care of your customers. Mitch and Dina have what it takes and more.
