Expresses thanks to many for park renovation

To the Editor:

I want to give a big shout-out to all of the volunteers and donors who made the renovation at Lynn Deming Park in New Milford a reality.

I know all of our politicians will claim credit for getting the project going while using our money, but if it was not for our great community of volunteers as well, and local companies that gave so much, it would never have happened.

I would especially like to thank three people who played an enormous part in pulling it all together and getting it done.

First, Alfred Esposito, for spearheading the entire project.

Second, Paul Szymanski for his company’s generous donation of over $40k in engineering work to get the project off the ground.

Also a big shout-out to Mel McBreairty and his crew for the great work he and his guys did to make the plans a reality.
