Members of the Glastonbury Republican Town Committee have donated an additional $1,000 to support the Town’s 325th birthday celebration, adding these pooled contributions on top of the individual donations already made by other Glastonbury Republicans.
On September 10, Town Committee Chairman John Tanski and Glastonbury Board of Education member Lillian Tanski visited Town Hall to present Town Manager Richard Johnson with checks totaling an additional $1,000, which were collected recently from Town Committee members.
“It’s a privilege to live in and to serve such a wonderful community,” said Mrs. Tanski, who, in addition to her service on the Board of Education, has served on the Town Plan and Zoning Commission and the Welles-Turner Memorial Library Board, and also as President of the Glastonbury Newcomers & Neighbors Club. “Glastonbury is truly worth celebrating. We’re pleased to have the opportunity to join our neighbors throughout the Town to create a memorable event.”
“As a community member, I’d like to thank all of the residents and businesses who are supporting this celebration,” added Mr. Tanski. “It’s great to see people come together in gratitude for everything Glastonbury offers to its residents. At a time when there are so many worthy causes seeking everyone’s support, I’m pleased but not surprised that Glastonbury Republicans have stepped up to support Glastonbury’s birthday celebration, just as so many Glastonbury Republicans step up to serve our Town in so many different ways every day.”
Glastonbury’s 325th birthday celebration will be held on Sunday, September 16, at Riverfront Park from 3 o’clock to 8 o’clock p.m. The event will feature live music, games and other entertainment, prize drawings, food trucks, a farmers’ market, adventure tours of the river and a fireworks display.
