Honoring Our Heritage: 7 Sunrise Road

WestportNow.com Image
Augie and Marcia Ciambriello are honoring Westport’s heritage by displaying a Westport Historical Society plaque identifying their home at 7 Sunrise Road as the Saugatuck Methodist Church parsonage which was built in c.1885.  Their home was built by Martin Doscher in c.1855 at Church and Saugatuck Avenues and deeded to the Saugatuck Methodist Church in 1894. It was used as the parsonage by the church until 1940s when it was moved to its current location in 1952 for the Ciambriello family. The house has been in the Ciambriello family since 1952 owned initially by Augie and Marcia’s grandparents, then their parent and, since 1997, by Augie and Marcia themselves. They have lived in Westport all their lives and say they “intend to stay.”  (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Bob Weingarten for WestportNow.com

The presentation was sponsored by the Friends of the Westport Center for Senior Activities as part of an effort to remind seniors of the importance of maintaining the excellence of Westport’s schools.

Malcolm Watson, a 2001 Staples graduate, went on to graduate from Ithaca College College and then from Columbia University with an MA in social organizational psychology.

He told the audience his passion for running is directly attributable to Staples Coach Laddie Lawrence. Watson has completed both the New York and the Boston marathons.
