In light of the events that have happened in Newtown, the meeting with the Recreation Commission is still on. The only thing is they're requesting that no visitors for this renaming park attend due to the heavy agenda from Sandy Hook Tragedy.
On November 28, 2012 during night rush hour, Newtown lost an 18 year old due to a terrible car accident. Christopher Lee Mulligan, was born in Taegu, South Korea on February 5, 1994, he was the son of Brian and Laura DiDomenico Mulligan. He had attended Newtown High School. Christopher enjoyed skateboarding and could often be found at the Newtown Skateboard Park. He was an artist and creative writer. He held a Second Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do and was looked up to by the youth he taught at the American Institute of Tae Kwon Do in Monroe. In addition to his parents, survivors include his family and many many friends.
There will be a meeting on January 8th 2012, at 6:00 pm in which I (Michael Trevail) will address this to the Recreation Commission Board. At this point, there asking that no community members attend due to their heavy agenda. They still have us on the agenda but due to the recent tragedy from Sandy Hook, they have a lot of things to go over.
There is an online petition, if it goes through, the Newtown Skate Park would be known as the C.L. Mulligan Skate Park. Let’s do this in his honor!!
Please click on Change.org to sign the petition. The petition will end at midnight Monday January 7, 2012.
Thank you Newtown for your support!
