Thank you also to Mayor Andy Surritt with R&S Maintenance and the members of the Meriden City Council for joining the Jeff West Ball Association in funding the remainder of the sidewalk.
We wanted to take a moment to thank a few more people who had a hand in making this happen. Jason Boyer was the President of JWBA when Mrs. Grahem made the initial donation, and had it not been for his efforts early on, this collaboration wouldn't have run so smoothly! Thank you Mr. Boyer!
Also, a big thank you to Greg Kelly, former JWBA President and sitting board member. He handled many of the logistics of this venture, and he made the presentation to the City Council back in November, which led to the additional funding for this sidewalk. Thanks Greg!
Finally, thank you to all JWBA board members, past and present, for their hard work and dedication to this improvement!
We are looking forward to seeing this sidewalk put to good use this spring and summer! :) :) :)
