Yesterday I attended the dedication ceremony of Bishop Woods School on Quinnipiac Avenue. I congratulate the parents, teachers and students of Bishop Woods on their beautiful new building! At this event, we also re-dedicated the playground to former Alderman Eddie Clifford who, along with his family, joined us for a ribbon cutting of the new outdoor recreational facility.
