I’d like to take this time to make an announcement regarding the Connecticut Paranormal Research Society. When Joe and I first started this organization back in 1995 we came up with a mission statement based on our similar and common views. After 19 years I’d say we have helped many people who claimed to have some sort of paranormal disturbance or at least felt as though they did. Through the years of CPRS some faces changed with investigators, leaving and joining for their own, and our own reasons. We have had a great deal of pleasure researching the field of the paranormal while trying to help those seeking our help. I often say this a lot to people when I’m asked about the paranormal field, when we first started there were only a handful of groups and now you can do a google search for “Paranormal” in Connecticut alone and now there are over 35 groups that are actively researching in Connecticut. It’s amazing how a little TV exposure in the field could affect and inspire so many to research a fascinating and controversial field such as the paranormal.
But, CPRS has come at a crossroads of its existence and it is with great displeasure to announce that effective immediately, CPRS is no longer active as a group and will be dissolved. There are several reasons for this, some of which I am not going to get into because they are private and both Joe and I would like to keep it that way. Along with private reasons, the time and dedication that is required has finally taken its toll on both Joe and I with our everyday families and work commitments. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of the great people that we have met and helped over the last 19 years. Thank you so much for your support and for allowing us to help you through your difficult times. Thank you to all of the viewers on both our website and on our Facebook page that took the time to follow us and voice their thoughts and opinions on certain items that we posted. Your opinions did matter to us and we always appreciate your thoughts. A special thank you goes out to all of the investigators who have been a part of CPRS and that have donated their precious time and efforts investigating and helping others. Your countless hours of research, work, and commitments were greatly appreciated and will never be forgotten.
Both Joe and I will separately continue to research, investigate and help those who feel that they are the center of a Paranormal disturbance with the same mission and goal as non-profit organizations for those that reach out to us individually. I have already created a separate Facebook page specifically dedicated to paranormal research while retaining a personal page for family and close friends. For those of you who wish to continue to follow me, or “Friend” me, please be advised that you will be removed from my personal Facebook page and you can easily be added to my new dedicated paranormal page. It’s been a wild 19 years but now it’s time to move on and explore new adventures in a field that is so fascinating to many.
If you would like to contact either one of us for a possible investigation, or simply need to consult with someone about something you feel is paranormal you can reach us at the following email addresses. Thank you all and may God bless you all.
