Students Design Race Posters
David M. Grant Caterers, Valley Roofing & Siding and TETLEY USA are the Youth Poster Sponsors this year. Booth Hill in Shelton is being sponsored by David Grant sponsor, Irving School in Derby has Tetley Tea as their sponsor and Valley Roofing & Siding is sponsoring Assumption School in Ansonia. Race Director Glenn Gaetano noted that the race is not only a great athletic event, but one that highlights one of the great historical figures in Valley history, Commodore Isaac Hull. He said, "The poster project gives students in our local schools a great hands-on opportunity to learn about a Valley native who went on to be one of our country's greatest naval heroes. The project combines the history of the past with a great new tradition that we hope will keep Commodore Hull's name alive not only for our students, but for everyone in the community."
