The White Plains Beautification Foundation honored Peter Gisondi Sr. and the Gisondi family, Thursday evening, October 3, at their annual fall fund-raising gala at Westchester Hills Golf Club. A Blue Spruce and special garden have been planted in the family’s honor for the work they have done to help the foundation beautify White Plains.
With almost 60 Adopt-a-Park gardens throughout the city, the organization is responsible for 100-plus teak benches and dozens of memorial trees and parklets that bring colorful blooms to White Plains throughout the year.
Major accomplishments include the Michaelian Gazebo, Bailey Summer House and Hoffman Clock in Tibbits Park, The Hendy Clock at White Plains Library, Carillion Bells in the county office building, Triantifillu Fountain and Hawks Water Cascade in Tibbits Park, the Basket at Armory Place and the Giant Trowel sculpture on Route 119 and Hamilton Avenue as well as the “Welcome to White Plains” railroad-overpass sign on Main Street.
