A host of volunteers and donors came together to make significant upgrades to the large community meeting room at Ann’s Place, a nonprofit that serves people facing cancer. The Rotary Clubs of Ridgefield, Danbury and Rotary District 7980 provided the seed funds of $10,000 to get the project started. Labor and support were donated by H&Y Construction (Brookfield), Paul Dinto Electrical Contractors (Middlebury), Doyle Coffin Architecture (Ridgefield) and Seaman Mechanical Services (Danbury). None of these upgrades could have been done without the generous contributions of these companies.
The upgrades include 130 new conference room chairs, a high-quality sound system, and construction of a new privacy wall which separates a noisy entrance area from the main room.
