First Selectman Dan Rosenthal thanked his predecessor, Pat Llodra, for ushering the project to this point.  He said it will a wonderful gathering place once it's completed. 

 

Llodra asked people gathered at the site to remember why this came about, and how it stemmed from a tragedy.  GE donated $15 million to Newtown after the shootings at Sandy Hook School to help the community make a single gathering place, which the town doesn't currently have.  Llodra called it part of the journey out of the depths of grief.
