Holding the trophy is Michael Crystal (husband of Janet Crystal, marketing communications manager for the library). He headed up the first place team, Wilton Library Bocce Brawlers, which included Jon Waxberg (husband of Anita Waxberg, processing and circulation assistant for the library), Justin Bartholomew and Jeff Hancock (both employees of Ancona’s).
