Torrington High School, Class of 1959
Recognizes Christmas Village, A Torrington Landmark & Shining Star !
 The painting below was presented to me at Christmas Village, December 13, 2009, at the 62nd opening of Carl Bozenski's Santa Claus Christmas Village. It was in recognition, by the Torrington Park and Rec Commission, of my 50 years of involvement (broadcasting and MC of the opening ceremonies) with the Village. The painting, which uses plaster and is done in virtual 3D is beautiful and was done by a Torrington artist named Joe Kopler. (Kopler Arts and Entertainment) Joe does this unique painting for special occasions and if you ever want something truly different, give Joe a call at 860-626-8226.. It will hang proudly in my home.
