Hartford – State Senator L. Scott Frantz (R-36) applauded two local award recipients at the 2012 Connecticut Preservation Awards ceremony at the State Capitol on Wednesday, April 4th.

“I congratulate the award winners for their hard work and dedication in preserving these remarkable historical buildings,” said Senator Frantz. “Without their efforts, these valuable assets could have been lost forever to our state’s history.”
