Mayor Randy White has named Vicki Decarsky as recipient of the 2021 Mayor’s Award of Excellence. The award was established in 2002 as a way to honor an individual, family, organization, or business that has contributed significantly to the Derby community. The award will be presented at the January 12, 2021 City Council meeting.
“When I think about generous people laser focused on enhancing the Derby community, Vicki Decarsky is who I think of,” said Mayor Randy White. “For the past decade, when she saw a need, she put energy and resources into addressing it and often inspired others to do the same.”
Decarsky Park was named in honor of Vicki and her late husband, Tomp. In 2013, she donated 63 acres (valued at $800,000) for the park that features four ballfields, batting cages, Derby’s first dog park, and land for additional ballfields in a future phase 2. In addition, Mrs. Decarsky’s foundation funded $73,000 for the agility course and dock features. In October 2020, the dog park opened, and the ballfields will open in 2021.
Giving to the community is not a new endeavor for Vicki Decarsky:
