The East Lyme Public Trust Foundation is again offering sponsorships of benches- this time located at Samuel Peretz Sports Complex at Bridebrook Park. It is at this park where generations of children have learned to play Soccer, Lacrosse, Baseball, Pickle ball and Softball. Twenty benches, the same as those on the Niantic Bay Boardwalk, will be placed, for $800 each, along the walking path surrounding the Samuel Peretz Sports Complex.
Starting in 2005, during our first offering of benches, 200 benches have been sponsored on the Boardwalk. This is a new opportunity to remember loved ones, weddings, anniversaries, births, and graduations. To read the unique stories behind each sponsorship, walk the boardwalk to take note of the dedications on each bench, as they express loss, sorrow, laughter and contentment.
To read the names of the people who donated the original benches, go to the web-site for The East Lyme Public Trust Foundation where you will find the list in the Dedication Brochure.
You can download the application form for the Bridebrook Benches here and information will be posted on our Facebook page: East Lyme Public Trust Foundation. All profits are dedicated to the upkeep of the Boardwalk and other projects beyond the Boardwalk in East Lyme.
