Kolwicz Landscaping donates efforts to beautify Vietnam Memorial
When local landscaper, Brian Kolwicz, heard about the need for landscaping at the Vietnam Memorial at Rogers Park he knew that he had a chance to donate his time as it was “the right thing to do.”
“The Veterans have sacrificed so much for our freedoms, past, present, and future,” said Brian. “This was my way of saying thank you.”
Brian donated 100% of the labor, but when it came to the rest of the funding for the project, he knew he had to find a way that was as cost-effective as possible for the Veterans.
Local businesses offered to help out with the project by offering discounted rates on materials. Those businesses were Planter’s Choice in Newtown, Bethel Masonry and Dom’s Garden Center in Danbury.
Mayor Boughton has expressed great appreciation of the work Brian put into the Vietnam Memorial. “To see this philanthropic spirit in our local residents and business owners is what makes Danbury such a special community,” said Mayor Boughton. “As the most business-friendly city in Connecticut, it gives us pride to see a business go above and beyond for our city and our veterans.”
The Vietnam Memorial, dedicated in 1988, is the host of our annual Vietnam Ceremony presented by the Danbury Council of Veterans each spring.
