Gazebo Dedicated To Maria Tuzzo During RNA Flea Market

RNA, Maria Tuzzo's family, Mayor Fulop, Council President Lavarro and Heights residents participated in the dedication of the new gazebo as THE MARIA TUZZO VOLUNTEER PAVILION.  Thank you to all that came out as we honored Maria and her spirit of volunteerism.  The official plaque will be installed in the next few weeks.  

The Flea Market and Park Fest this year was successful and brought back the the event after an interruption last year.  We were able to raise over $2,000 in operating funds for RNA.  We thank all the vendors and shoppers that participated and spend a beautiful Saturday in the park with us.
