Club Adopts Haddad Park


Members of the Ansonia Rotary Club could be seen this summer trimming rose bushes and planting flowers in downtown Ansonia, dressing up the pocket park named after Dr. Fred Haddad at the corner of Bridge and Main Streets. Passing drivers gave the thumbs-up sign and honked horns in approval of the change in appearance. City Director of Constituent Services, Greg Martin, also stopped by to add his former Ansonia Garden Club. As the Ansonia Rotarians had installed a tower clock in the park years ago, it seemed only fitting to Club President Lori Veillette that the Rotary club invest some of its time and resources into improving the appearance of this downtown green area. Next step for the park will be the engagement of a professional clock repairman to estimate repairs needed to the tower clock.
