Helping Dreams Become Realities

Connor Meaney Young was a visionary. He was also an entrepreneur. At 14 years old, Connor channeled his passion for landscaping and his vision of entrepreneurship into his own business. A native of East Haddam, Connor and a fellow classmate started C&M Lawn and Landscaping. Their goal was to offer the best landscaping experience possible to their community, and to look to their clients and community to help them grow as business leaders and community members.

Connor was a true caretaker at heart – of his business and of his community. His eagerness to learn from those around him, to care for his neighbors, and to share his good will with the community is evident in the C&M Lawn and Landscaping’s mission,

“… we have learned the value of our customers and we take pride in keeping our homegrown business local to improve the many lives in our community.”

Connor tragically lost his life in November 2021, but his “caretaking” approach to his community continues. His family established the Connor Meaney Young Memorial Fund at the Community Foundation to help young people (and those young at heart) achieve their dreams. Through this Fund, his family will continue Connor’s legacy of helping others and supporting people just like him – those with big hearts, big goals, and a local community approach.

The Community Foundation is honored to work with Ian Young and Chris Ann Meaney to share Connor’s can-do spirit with Middlesex County.
