Harold Somerville, pres­i­dent, and Toni Du­rant, co-vice pres­i­dent, of the Wash­ing­ton Park As­so­ci­a­tion cut the rib­bon Satur­day morn­ing as the com­mu­nity park was ded­i­cated in mem­ory of neigh­bor­hood bene­fac­tor Louisa d’An­de­lot Car­pen­ter. Stand­ing next to Somerville is Dar­ryl Deaton, Wash­ing­ton Park As­so­ci­a­tion co-vice pres­i­dent. Also hold­ing the rib­bon at far left is Ch­ester­town Coun­cil­man Sam Shoge, whose ward in­cludes Wash­ing­ton Park. At­tend­ing the 9 a.m. cer­e­mony are coun­cil mem­bers Liz Gross and Marty Stet­son, mem­bers of the town’s Recre­ation Com­mis­sion, in­clud­ing Chair­man Brandt Troup, and res­i­dents. Car­pen­ter helped to de­velop Wash­ing­ton Park, whose first res­i­dents moved into the neigh­bor­hood off Flat­land Road in 1965. She died in Fe­bru­ary 1976 when her pri­vate plane crashed near Eas­ton.
