East Lyme Public Trust Foundation
Ribbon Cutting on July 15, 2005
An important part of making the Niantic Bay Overlook a community project resulted from the initial five hundred donors whose bench and board inscriptions share thoughts and memories that reflect our mutual sense of community.

Ribbon Cutting

Donor support not only provided part of the overlook structure but also allowed the Trust to give the Town of East Lyme litter receptacles and to establish an endowed fund dedicated to Overlook maintenance. Future opportunity will be provided for people to continue to donate for benches and boards.
