Mayor Drew and the CT Trees of Honor Memorial will host a Charity Wine & Cheese Tasting event at the Wadsworth Mansion at Long Hill, in Middletown, CT on September 13 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The event will feature special guests, a silent auction, and the Reminisce Jazz Combo will provide live entertainment.
Proceeds will benefit the CT Trees of Honor Memorial, to be built in Veterans’ Memorial Park, on Newfield Court in Middletown, CT. The memorial will honor and forever remember our 63 Connecticut men and women who served in the military, deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan, and made the ultimate sacrifice with their lives. The memorial will encompass a beautifully designed space that will include a tree planted for each of our State's heroes who gave their life serving in Iraq or Afghanistan.
The memorial will be funded and constructed with public donations and volunteer efforts. It will also feature walkways, flower gardens, benches, flagpoles, statues and lighting. It will be a serene, reflective area where families, friends, and visitors can be reminded of the valiant courage, bravery, and selflessness of our Connecticut men and women who served.
A monument to honor all Connecticut veterans will also be a part of this memorial design.
