Brown Memorial Park in Norwich with her grandmother, Linda Lussier, second from right, both of Jewett City, and friends Dominic Morin, 15, of Danielson, second from left, and James LePage, left, of Jewett City. The group had been visiting parks in the area looking a picnic table in the sun to have a picnic and, even though this park did not have a picnic table, they decided to wait on lunch and take some time to enjoy the nice location and weather.
