NEW MILFORD — Rita Neufeld-Gregory is delighted that her famous grandfather’s iconic painting of the bandstand on the town green against the backdrop of Town Hall inspired the design of a new uniform patch for the police.

The Roxbury kindergarten teacher said she knows her grandfather would be proud that his artistry was adopted by town police. The new patch includes a slice of the painting topped with an American eagle and flag.

“He painted what he loved, and he loved New Milford,” said Gregory, who accepted a certificate of appreciation from Lt. William Scribner during the Police Department’s award ceremony at the Community Ambulance facility Friday.

The new patch design was on display not only on officer uniforms, but also in a poster at the front of the room and as the centerpiece of a cake for the standing-room-only guests.

There was also a special recognition of retired and former police officers, including longtime retired Police Chief Ted Adams.
