Playground dedicated to beloved YMCA official Ken Griffen
The New Britain YMCA hosted a dedication ceremony of its pre-school playground Thursday, in Memory of Ken Griffen, vice president and a strong presence at the Y, who passed away.
“He was an active leader in the Y, Rotary Club, St. Mark’s Church and many other community organizations. There is no doubt that Ken’s devotion to the Y led to new and better facilities and services to children and families of our community,” said Marci Moskal, branch director at the New Britain YMCA. “I know that Ken would be very proud of this playground and we are thrilled to be able to name this area in his memory.”
