To the Editor:
Several weeks ago, as owners of the Art in Residence fine art gallery, we were invited to attend a S.H.O.P. meeting to hear more about the upcoming Sandy Hook Artwalk. While there, we met Melissa Lopata, the event marketing director.
At her request, Rosemary became an advisor with regard to the selection and installation of art works in the various Sandy Hook shops.
Melissa is easy going, savvy and sincere in her commitment to see Sandy Hook prosper in every way.
