They are made in the USA by Freenotes Harmony Park in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and they have been placed all over the world.  Not effected by climate, they enhance the environment with the sweet sounds evoked when played.  Built in various sizes, the sounds go from basso to soprano.  Some of the newer instruments have been shaped into trees or colorful flowers.  The instruments will be maintained by members of the Bricks & Murals organization.
We have selected the following two for Rotary Park (yet to be installed)
Griffin         Merry
And the third one, Piper, is sponsored by the Celico Family and dedicated in memory of Mario Celico.  A memorial dedication of Piper took place on Sunday, July 7, 2019 at 11:00am at Rotary Park followed by a reception/lunch from Noon to 2:00pm at The Margin Street Inn at 4 Margin Street, Westerly.
Lisa Konicki, President of the Ocean Community Chamber of Commerce, gave the dedication on behalf of the Celico family, remembering Mario's many accomplishments.  Afterwards, some of the young children took turns playing Piper, which sounded quite lovely.
