Memorial Bench for Sara Gallipo at the Recreation Area

R. Ketcham brought in a quote from Gawet Marble for a memorial bench. On it had several quotes. Quote #1- Danby White Marble Bench: seat w/back (no arms); 3-6 ft. long: all smooth finish $2,305.75 plus assembly $460.00 for a total of $2765.75. Special option #1 Danby Marble LEGS ONLY $739.00. Quote #2- Barre Gray Granite Bench: seat w/back (no arms) 3-6 ft. long, steeled finish on faces; tapered back; BRP $1280.00 plus assembly $460.00 for a total of $1740.00. Special option #2 Barre Gray Granite LEGS ONLY $323.00. At the March 2016 Recreation Committee meeting R. Ketcham passed around a photo of a double-seated bench he found. He thought it represented what Mrs. Gallipo would have liked.  K. Shortsleeves mentioned that the Recreation Committee might want to contact New England Woodcraft as there is a family connection there and they might be willing to help. It was the consensuses of the Recreation Committee to get a list and photographs of the different choices of benches and present them to Andrea Winslow to help decide what style would be most appropriate.
