Thank You to Two Special Vounteers

Thank You to Two Special Vounteers

As 2013 draws to a close, it’s time for us to say good-bye to two dedicated APLDCT volunteers who are stepping down from serving on the APLDCT Board of Directors – Mary Ellen Pirozzoli  and Dede Delaney.

Thanks

Mary Ellen Pirozzoli, the owner of Verdesign, LLC in Ridgefield, is one of the founding members of the Connecticut Chapter of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers. Mary Ellen was integral in getting the Chapter off the ground, and was especially vital in establishing the Chapter’s newsletter communications with our members. Willing to step in and help out in any role as needed, Mary Ellen was elected President of the Chapter in 2013.

Dede Delaney, the owner of Red Twig Garden Design, has served on the Board for four years. For most of that time, Dede has been the Chapter’s Secretary, diligently recording Chapter history, as well as the minutes from countless meetings! She has been a tireless volunteer, involved in many aspects of our Chapter events during those four years.

We will truly miss Mary Ellen and Dede’s commitment and drive to make the Chapter succeed. From carting around the ‘event box’, putting out signs, organizing the Holiday Party, arriving early to set up functions, staying late to clean up and manning the Chapter table at numerous events  to help spread the word about APLDCT,  it’s fair to say APLDCT would not be where it is today without Mary Ellen and Dede. We look forward to seeing them as regular attendees at upcoming events.

Thank you again for all your hard work and dedication. We couldn’t have done it without you both!
