Kingsbury had the honor of welcoming the family of Mr. William J. Pape, Il, the distinguished publisher of the Waterbury Republican American, who recently passed away.
Mrs. Patricia Moran, supervisor of the Family and Community Engagement Center for Waterbury Public Schools is also Mr. Pape’s sister-in-law. Mrs. Moran donated over forty books in Mr. Pape’s memory to our library media center.
Mrs. Moran read “I am Not a Fish” by Peter Raymundo to Mrs. Signore’s Kindergarten class. The themes of oceans and sea life are prominent in the donated books as Mr. Pape, a graduate of Annapolis, had a life long love of the sea.
Thank you, Mrs. Moran and the entire Pape family!
