Hartford, CT – State Senator Toni Boucher (R-Wilton) visits with Abigail Gleissner of St Mary School in Bethel today at the Capitol. Gleissner is the Fairfield County Winner of The Connecticut Tree Protective Association (CTPA) Arbor Day Poster Contest. Gleissner’s poster depicts a sugar maple tree in her back yard. Senator Boucher and Abigail participated in a ceremony outside on the capitol grounds where participants planted a tree. While inside the senate chamber Boucher showed Abigail around, including an opportunity to sit in the wishing chair made from wood of the original Charter Oak. Legend has it anyone who sits in the chair receives their wish.
