Legislature Honors Valley Effort
The State Legislature honored the Valley's winning All America City effort during a special session of the state General Assembly on Monday, June 19. Valley representatives traveled to Hartford for a session of the House and Senate designed to deal with vetoed legislation. The delegation was greeted by State Representative Kevin DelGobbo, Naugatuck, and Dick Belden of Shelton. They were led into the well of the House for a special ceremony in which each member of the Valley's legislative delegation had the opportunity to speak to the House in praise of the Valley and the winning effort in Louisville.
Each town was presented with a special citation recognizing that town's contribution to the effort. Following the House session, some of the delegates had the opportunity to tour the governor's office and then receive similar accolades from the Senate.
