More than 50 people attended from Norwalk and the surrounding communities to celebrate the new ownership and management of LaKota Oaks, Southern Connecticut’s Event and Conference Center, as well as the long and successful life of Mayor Zullo, who passed away earlier this year.
The attendees gathered along the sweeping front lawn of the property to hear warm dedications made by LaKota Hotels & Resorts Director, Andy Dolce, Norwalk Mayor Harry Rilling, LaKota Oaks owner Hafeez Choudhary and Frank Zullo’s wife, Beernice Zullo.
The community of people gathered around the tree to celebrate the life of Frank Zullo and the mission of LaKota Oaks to cultivate and nurture the strong roots and existing relationships of the Norwalk community.
“This oak tree was planted to signify the strong influence Frank Zullo had on everyone he touched,” said Andy Dolce in his comments.
“Frank Zullo was the best Mayor Norwalk ever had!” said Mayor Harry Rilling in his comments.
