Larry Janesky, owner of the Seymour based Basement Systems, was honored for his role in designing and building the new playground at the Ansonia Nature and Recreation Center. In an official proclamation, Ansonia Mayor David Cassetti named Janesky “Ansonia’s Community Hero” and presented him with a Key to the City.
Janesky and Basement Systems were also honored at an event celebrating the reopening of the playground which was held at the Ansonia Nature and Recreation Center on Saturday. The ribbon cutting took place on “Take Your Child to the Ansonia Nature and Recreation Center Community Park Day.” Cassetti, Patricia Tarasovic of the Valley United Way’s Corporate Volunteer Council, Sen. Joseph Crisco and Rep. Linda Gentile were all on hand to mark the occasion.
The ribbon was cut by 3-year-old Cecelia Tarasovic of Ansonia and Kellie Santiago of Basement Systems, who participated in the ribbon cutting for the first playground built 25 years ago.
Janesky and over 100 Basement Systems volunteers built the playground in just three days in July 2016.
