     Interest on the unpaid principal amount of this Note shall be payable monthly in arrears from the date hereof, commencing on June 1, 2009 and continuing on the first day of each succeeding calendar month until paid in full at a variable annual rate equal to the greater of (i) the Prime Rate plus Zero Percent (0%), or (ii) Four Percent (4%), and in the manner specified in Section 2.1.5. of the Credit Agreement.
     This Note is the Revolving Credit Note referred to in Section 2.1.3. of the Credit Agreement, the terms and conditions of which are hereby incorporated by this reference. Capitalized terms used herein without definition shall have the meanings set forth in the Credit Agreement.
     Overdue payments of principal (whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise), and, to the extent permitted by law, overdue interest, shall bear interest at the rate and in the manner set forth in Section 2.6.4. of the Credit Agreement.
     If a payment of principal or interest is not made within fifteen (15) days of its due date, the undersigned will also pay on demand a late payment charge equal to six percent (6%) of the amount of such payment.

2

     No reference to the Credit Agreement nor any provision thereof shall affect or impair the absolute and unconditional obligation of the Maker of this Note to pay the principal of and interest on this Note as herein provided.
     All sums paid under this Note shall be applied first to all fees, costs and expenses incurred by Bank under the Credit Agreement and this Note, then to any late charges payable by Maker, then to any accrued and unpaid interest, with the balance, if any, to be applied to unpaid principal.
     Until notified in writing of the transfer of this Note, Maker shall be entitled to deem Payee or such person who has been so identified by the transferor in writing to Maker as the holder of this Note, as the owner and holder of this Note.
     The Credit Agreement and this Note shall be governed by, and shall be construed and enforced in accordance with, the laws of the State of Connecticut.

     The terms of this Note are subject to amendment only in the manner provided in Section 13.10. of the Credit Agreement.
     Any failure by Bank to exercise any right under this Note or the Credit Agreement arising or existing as a result of the occurrence of an Event of Default, or any delay in such exercise, shall not constitute a waiver of the right to exercise such right at a later time so long as such Event of Default shall remain uncured, and shall not constitute a waiver of the right to exercise such right if any other Event of Default shall occur and be continuing. The acceptance by Bank of the payment of any sum due and payable under this Note after the date specified for such payment shall not be a waiver of Bank’s right to require prompt payment when due of all other sums payable under this Note or of Bank’s right to declare a default for failure to make prompt payment in full.

Holder may, at any time after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, apply the same, or any part thereof, to any liability of Maker or any such other person, whether matured or unmatured, to Holder.
