Berlin resident, a volunteer broadcaster, applauded

Thanks to more than 100 volunteers, the Connecticut Radio Information System broadcasts audio versions of articles published in more than 50 newspapers and magazines 24 hours a day, seven days a week for people who are unable to read.

CRIS volunteers also record audio versions of classroom materials and children’s magazines, and audio tours for museums.

Among those recognized was Berlin resident Trisha Beatty, who has provided five years of service to CRIS, which broadcasts from Windsor and five regional studios throughout the state
