23 Jan Window Honoring Jennifer Pugh to Be Placed at New Haven Library
NEW HAVEN, CT – In recognition of her tireless and selfless dedication in her more than three decades of service to the city of New Haven, a stained glass window is being constructed as a lasting tribute to Jennifer Pugh, who passed away on December 8th. When finished it will be installed on the first floor of the New Haven Free Public Library.
Pugh, 65, was the longest serving Deputy Chief Administrative Officer for the City of New Haven, from 1998 to her retirement in 2017.
A flyer that is being circulated to raise funds for the tribute says: "The work is inspired by her love for the city, and in particular the library, where it will be installed as a lasting tribute to her 33 year career with the city of New Haven."
The window has been designed by local artist and Pugh’s good friend, Robert Mele, and will be constructed by Branford stained glass artist Jayne Crowley.
The work reflects the nine squares of New Haven and depicts parts of the city Pugh loved the most.
There will be a dedication ceremony at the library on March 26th.
There are several ways to contribute to this project. Contributions can be made online at https://jennifertribute.eventb…
Also checks can be mailed to: Jennifer Tribute Fund; c/o Maggie Targove; 20 Alden Street, New Haven, CT 06512.
Proceeds in excess of the cost of the window and the dedication reception will be donated to the New Haven Free Public Library Foundation.
