An accidental misspelling on a recently installed Dickinson Park sign will need to be corrected.
“It will have to be recast,” said Parks & Recreation Department Director Amy Mangold regarding a granite sign put in place late last week outside the A. Fenn Dickinson Memorial Park. Fenn has been carved as Finn on the sign.
Ms Mangold said, “We will have to look at how to get it fixed.” She rechecked the work order to Swenson Granite Works of Newtown and confirm the order specified the spelling as Fenn.
“They do so very much good work for us,” she said, noting that errors are “bound to happen once.”
The department has made plans in recent years to replace all its town park signs with the granite markers. A similar sign went in at Eichler’s Cove Marina last spring. Swenson’s also provided the granite, engraved memorial benches outside Edmond Town Hall.
Located on Elm Drive, Dickinson Park was dedicated to former Newtown First Selectman A. Fenn Dickinson in 1955. This park is open to Newtown residents from 9 am until sundown.
