Rotary's pavilion project progresses in Shelton

 I received a press release Monday from Lauren Kazzi, vice president of image for the Derby-Shelton Rotary Club, about the progress being made on construction of a pavilion at the Shelton Riverwalk.
The Rotarians have raised funds for the project, which is a joint effort between the club and the city of Shelton.
I was there for the ceremonial groundbreaking in November 2010.

Here is the slightly-edited release:
The Shelton Riverwalk's latest project is almost finished. The Derby/Shelton Rotary Club, in partnership with the City of Shelton, is building a large pavilion for public use. The pavilion will be dedicated in memory of state Rep. Richard O. Belden, who died in August 2007.
The design and construction phases of the project are being overseen by Jim Tate of Shelton, who also designed the Farmers' Market nearby.

The Shelton Economic Development Corporation has also played an important role in keeping the project moving forward.
Heavy work will continue on the building until mid-July. The pavilion will be available for use sometime in September, after all of the finishing touches have been made to the landscaping.

I was amazed at how much work was completed in three weeks.
I took the photo of the foundation (below) June 2 while attending the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life at the Riverwalk.

Truth be told, I forgot to post it.

The Rotary Club and city officials involved with the construction should be commended. The pavilion will be a great venue for community gatherings in the not-too-distant future.
