The charter committee included: George Errico, Bob Stauffer, Tom
Bradshaw, Floyd Traver, Norm Litke, Jack Bristol, Don Cowan, Don
Beauchamp and Bob Woodfield. In 1972 Ed Rossi was added.

of the various volunteer youth programs of our community, namely
the Naugatuck Babe Ruth League, Union City Little League, Peter
J. Foley Little League, Little Pal Basketball League and Naugatuck
Junior Football League.

as guest speaker. In 1973 Mickey Mantle was guest speaker and, in
1974, the speaker was Dick Williams.
