The Town of Berlin recently rededicated the anchor from the USS Decatur, a decommissioned Forrest Sherman Class Navy warship. The anchor is located at the main parking area of Berlin’s Stephen Decatur Park. The area is newly landscaped and the anchor was realigned with a new permanent interpretative plaque donated by local residents Robert Jester and Reese Cropper, Sr. All the work for the project was performed by the Berlin Public Works Department.

Pictured (l to r) are: Bruce Hyder and Patricia Dufendach, Berlin Parks Commission members; Mike Gibbons, Public Works Director; Mayor Gee Williams; Robert Jester; Lou Taylor, SDHS Principal; Councilmember Lisa Hall; Mike Wiley, Parks Commission Chair; and Mary Bohlen, Deputy Town Administrator.
