Many thanks to Hamden Rotary Club for the grant making possible the purchase of a new evaporator for the Maple Sugaring program at the park. The old one served us well for over a decade but was literally falling part. Thousands of school children and adults have come to the park since 2002 to learn about the craft of making Maple Syrup. Thank you to Friends of Brooksvale park & Rotary Club members Lee Campo, Betsy Gorman, Rotary President Paul Begemann and all the other rotary members who faithfully support the Hamden community through efforts such as this. Sugarmaker Pete Laffin, the park staff, the FOB board and many others appreciate you all!
