2011 marked the 25th anniversary of Joe Marfuggi as President and CEO of Riverfront Recapture. To celebrate Joe's enduring dedication and leadership, a group of Riverfront’s Friends of the River began to make contributions or pledges to provide funding for repairs and improvements that go beyond routine maintenance. Funds are invested wisely to help the balance grow even as withdrawals are made for out-of-the-ordinary park needs such as:

  • Replacing the dock in Charter Oak Landing where the Hartford Belle launches
  • Adding weather screening to the Riverfront Boathouse stair tower to keep the steps clear of snow and ice

Let's continue the work that Joe started and support the Marfuggi Parks Fund, and be prepared for all types of weather emergencies. Please contact Deborah Baker, Director of Development, via email or by calling 860.713.3131 ext. 326.
