WEST HAVEN, Aug. 23, 2021 — (Pictured, from left): Tom Conroy, a program coordinator at the Department of Parks and Recreation, receives a $1,000 check Tuesday, Aug. 10, from Rick Ziegler on behalf of the New Haven Raiders Hockey Club toward the department’s purchase of a tree and plaque in Painter Park in memory of Madison “Madi” Cicarella.
Looking on is Chuck Asarisi, the director of the department’s Painter Park Day Camp.
Madi, of West Haven, died of cancer July 16 at age 13.
In honor of the avid camp participant, Conroy said Park-Rec’s Camper of the Year award has been renamed the Madi Cicarella Camper of the Year award.
