CT -Greenwich First Selectman
Peter J. Tesei has announced
the establishment of the Greenwich
Kindness Rocks Garden.
A special space in front of Greenwich Town Hall, 101 Field Point
Road, has been created for the rock garden. The 25-foot by 10-foot
space is located
on the north side of the building, adjacent
to the Town Hall Parking
The garden was placed there for two reasons - its proximity
to the parking garage where visitors can park free of charge
on the top deck and the location
is handicapped accessible.
The idea for the Greenwich
Kindness Rocks Garden
was borne from the friends and family
of Steven Sudell,
the Greenwich school
student who has been battling
brain cancer since April 2017. While receiving
treatment at Yale-New
Haven Hospital, Steven and his family liked to visit the Kindness
Rocks garden there.
They brought the concept to Greenwich and to Cos Cob Park, a respite
that Steven enjoys visiting with his family.
Upon being approached by friends and family, the Town agreed
to establish a Greenwich Kindness
Rocks Garden at Town Hall to show that kindness
does indeed rock in Greenwich. The work was conducted by the Greenwich
Parks & Recreation Department.
Please join First
Selectman Peter J. Tesei and friends and relatives of the Sudell family to officially open the garden
at 10:30 a.m., Friday, Sept. 7, 2018. Residents may place hand-painted rocks up to 6 to 8 inches in diameter
in the garden.
