Farmington Rotary Club Chairman Kevin Ray is shown presenting me with a $ 1,500 check to support the Barney Renovations Project http://farmingtonlibctjay.blogspot.com/2009/09/barney-ground-breaking-tuesday.html.

Thank You Rotarians for all you do for Farmington and especially for the significant help you are providing to the Barney Renovations Project.
