DERBY — Two signs detailing the history and recreational benefits of the Naugatuck and Housatonic rivers were installed along the Greenway Wednesday.
Representatives of the Cornwall Bridge-based Housatonic Valley Association, Sikorsky Aircraft and other officials joined Mayor Anthony Staffieri and Economic Development Director Sheila O’Malley at the entrance to O’Sullivan’s Island to mark the installation.
