The Town of Hamden gratefully accepts the donation of the Campanile and the electronic Carillon by the children of Philip Paolella in honor of Ciro Paolella, founder and president of the Plasticrete Corporation.
Born in Italy, in the province of Benevento, he worked most of his life in Hamden and developed a building block firm into a concrete products manufacturer of national reputation.
We salute him and the Italian community for the constructive contributions made to the progress of the Town of Hamden.
