NORWICH – The first day of spring in the one-hundredth-year since the City of Norwich first incorporated brought United States Congress Representative Richard Hanna to City Hall to meet with local leaders and present an official document congratulating the city on its one-hundredth birthday.
As a symbol of recognition, the ceremony also served as an opportunity for local leaders to meet, discuss and reflect on the past, present and even possible future successes and challenges that are laid out before the City of Norwich.
“One of the greatest things about being the Mayor of a city like Norwich is being able to work with various leaders and officials,” said City of Norwich Mayor Joseph Maiurano. “We are fortunate to have a continued smooth-working relationship with the elected officials who represent us and our needs – and also want the best for communities.”
“If you take a look at all of the happenings that have taken place since the city's incorporation in 1914 – whether it be the great wars, economic changes and even changes in technology – you see a city the has not only survived; but also has thrived,” said Maiurano.
