After serving as a Methodist church for more than a century, Trinity-on-Main was set for the wrecking ball. Despite the grandeur of its 108-foot granite tower, its intricate stained glass windows, and its neck-straining ceilings, it seemed that the historic structure would be reclaimed. That is, however, until the New Britain community stepped in to save it. With their support and direction, the church became a haven for the town's cultural scene, and today hosts events ranging from theater productions to poetry readings.

New Britain-Berlin YMCA's 90,000-square-foot complex helps members improve their lives through community programs, personal training programs, and a variety of fitness facilities, including a new massage studio. Besides bulking up on full circuit of Nautilus strength equipment or powering through Precor treadmills, steppers, and ellipticals, visitors can join friends for games of basketball in the double gymnasium or chuck tomatoes at the walls of five on-site racquetball courts. The clear waters of the 25-yard swimming pool parallel the mirrored walls of an 800-square-foot fitness studio, where members can partake in several health and wellness programs throughout the week.

Recently featured in the Hartford Courant, Spin Cycle Café eliminates the boredom and spin-induced hypnosis associated with traditional, un-tricked-out Laundromats. In addition to 25 washers ($2/single load, $3/double load) and 24 dryers ($1 for 24 minutes, $0.25 for additional six minutes), Spin Cycle Café has free WiFi, organic fair-trade coffee, satellite TV, and a full bar and café menu. All-day breakfast items, such as the sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich ($3.95) or the bagel with cream cheese and a small coffee ($3.25), provide nutritional fuel to last you through your clothes’ de-dirtenings. The tomatoes, black olives, shredded chicken, and mozzarella of the chicken-pesto panini ($7.25) inject cleansing sessions with a distinctly boot-shaped flavor. Off-the-clock laundronauts can kick back with an ice-cold beer from Spin Cycle’s bar, and those fed up with the eulogy and tragic- monologue readings that are popular in traditional laundry destinations will enjoy a change of pace with Spin Cycle’s event calendar, which features comedy shows on the last Saturday of every month.

North Central Regional Mental Health Board strives to ensure that citizens take part in monitoring the state’s mental-health services. The organization works directly with people who have mental-health or substance-abuse issues through a variety of programs and advocates on their behalf through legislative and fundraising events. One of the many services available, the Day in the Life project, observed the lives of people who receive behavioral-health services through the state to determine how best to help them in the future. In addition, the annual Celebrating Recovery dinner invites individuals in recovery to share their stories as a way of reaffirming that recovery is always possible.

Founded by American Mountain Guides Association–certified instructor Matt Shove, Ragged Mountain Guides teaches its climbing pupils the techniques and tools needed to scale the natural terrain of the Traprock region. Rock-climbing adventures illuminate how to handle rope and repel down mountain cliffs even when their escalators are broken. As seasonal temperatures drop, guides turn their attention to ice and alpine climbing, which challenges mountaineers to swing their axe and scale vertical ice. Students master increasingly advanced techniques until they can tackle cliffs on their own, and the most dedicated climbers can enroll in guide-certification programs. Matt Shove's expertise has also been tapped by organizations such as the U.S. Coast Guard, and he regularly repels into the offices of Climberism magazine to contribute articles.
