Litchfield's Parks and Recreation Department's Christmas Ornament Honors Wisdom House

Litchfield Parks and Recreation's long tradition of creating ornaments using local subjects continues with this year's ornament honoring Wisdom House. The ornaments have been a Litchfield tradition for 20 years. They are struck at the world-famous foundry of Woodbury Pewter in Woodbury, Connecticut.

Litchfield High School senior, Melanie Torres submitted the winning drawing from all the other budding artists in Mrs. Barbara Salinger's art classes. Melanie enjoys drawing and photography and she hopes to study engineering and computer science in college.

Pictured here are Mrs. Barbara Salinger(l), Melanie Torres(center) and Sr. Rosemarie Greco, DW, Administrator of Wisdom House (r).

The ornaments are offered for sale at the Litchfield Town Hall, the Litchfield Historical Society, Litchfield Parks and Recreation, and at Wisdom House for $10 each.
