Peter Dalton MemorialFamily and friends gathered on Friday, November 29, for the dedication of the Peter F. Dalton Memorial Bench and Gardens at the corner Academy Street and Bradley Road in Madison.

Peter and his widow, Maureen, have been staunch supporters of The Madison Foundation, which manages the family’s endowment fund.

Maureen has said the Memorial “completes a perfect triangle of our family life together” with it’s location across from St. Margaret Church, where the family has held christenings, communions, weddings and funerals; and across from the Academy School, where Maureen taught for 10 years and their daughters attended class; and the field where Peter coached their boys in baseball and cheered on the girls in sports.

“Peter’s Bench” is in place, and work on the Veterans’ Walk is nearing completion.
