To whom it may concern:

I’ve had the pleasure of working with the entire Marenna family for nearly 20 years. The Marenna Amusements has always provided reliable, safe clean rides for our community to enjoy during our annual Carnival, Parade and Fireworks display. Last year, the Marenna’s helped us celebrate 125 years of service to the Borough of Unionville and the Town of Farmington and they couldn’t have been better partners. It’s truly a pleasure to work with a family owned and run business. Looking forward to working with the entire family for many more years.

Dear Marenna Family:

We at Beacon Hose Co. No. 1 in Beacon Falls have been a tradition-oriented family for more than 115 years. Our small community's favorite tradition is our firemen's carnival -- one that is more than 55 years old -- and we take great pride in putting on a fun, family-friendly event every June that attracts an estimated 10,000 visitors over three days.

We are proud to have worked with Marenna Amusements for the last decade. Our cramped site poses unique challenges for an amusement company, but George III uses his experience and attention to detail so we get the most out of the area. George and I have a positive working relationship and tackle any problems immediately. The Marennas are responsive to anything we want to try to increase the success of our event, and they understand how important this carnival is to our fire department and our community.

We look forward to working with Marenna Amusements for the foreseeable future.

To Whom it May Concern:

I Lillian Edwards-Saunders, SDSW am the supervisor for the Dept. of Development Services respite center in Hamden.

I wanted to say thank you to the gentlemen named George who worked the ride at the Milford Mall parking lot on September 26th, 2009. He generously allowed our clients with disabilities to ride two rides for the price of one. Their funds are low and this was greatly appreciated by all.

His kindness helped enhance their quality of life along with doubling their smiles for that day. Just wanted to let you know that your gesture did not go unnoticed.

If you have any questions, I can be reached at (203) 248-6087.

We viewed the applicant’s equipment which showed signs of an aggressive continual maintenance program. Items we viewed were lubrication points in out of the way places, correct wire sizing for the attached load and fusing. Exposed bearing and bushing wear, seat restraints braking devices and the availability of spare parts and equipment along with the correct tools and machinery to properly install them.

We found this to be Superior.


We found safety to be paramount within this operation. All the rides are inspected weekly by the CT State Police Department of Public Safety. The applicant also performs a daily pre-opening inspection on each ride and piece of equipment. Written reports are maintained. I had an opportunity to review several of these reports at random and there were some minor repairs requested. The repair person properly signed off on repair and the inspection filed. With this being a family operation it is evident that safety is their number one priority. We found no adverse information regarding this amusement operator on several safety search engine web sites nor with the CT State Police Department of Public Safety.

We found this to be Superior.
