The Waveny Park Conservancy would like to express our appreciation to all those who helped make our 3rd Annual Tailgate Party another huge success. We would particularly like to thank the following:
Becky Walsh, Nancy Bemis, BJ Flagg and nurenu Brand Marketing, Louise Havens, Scott Gress, Catherine Bagg and Elm Street Books, elm restaurant, Cava Wine Bar, New Canaan Wine Merchants, New Canaan Chamber of Commerce, New Canaan Advertiser, The New Canaan Historical Society, New Canaan Land Trust, New Canaan High School Class of 1993 and New Canaanite.
Special thanks are extended to Steve Benko of the Recreation Department, John Howe of the Parks Department and Mose Saccary and the great team from the Highway Department who all worked to ensure that the event was properly planned and executed.
After a week of heavy rain, we had a beautiful night and guests enjoyed great music by instructors from New Canaan Music and the Short Bus band. Our stage was donated in the last minute thanks to the efforts of Peter Lanni.
In partnership with the Town of New Canaan, The Garden Club of New Canaan and our donors, The Conservancy has recently undertaken efforts to restore the Trails, the Cornfields, the Parterre Garden and the upcoming Pond Restoration. We thank all those who turned out at the Tailgate Party as the support we receive will assist the Conservancy’s efforts to continue to restore and enhance the 130 acres of open space surrounding Waveny.
