    Ceremony planned at Garibaldi Square in New London

    New London ― The American Italian Association will hold an informal re-dedication ceremony on Saturday to recognize recent efforts to clean up Garibaldi Square.

    Cleanup work of the square and 10-foot tall fountain, at the corner of Shaw and Bank streets, was performed by the city and volunteers with the American Italian Association.

    The plaque on the fountain, dated May 3, 1987, reads, “Given by the Italian-American community and its friends to the city of New London in memory of those who came to America to fulfill their hopes and dreams.”

    The ceremony starts at 2 p.m. Participants are encouraged to bring lawn chairs.
