NEW BRITAIN - The Connecticut Alliance of YMCAs recently awarded its 2014 Legislative Champion Award to state Rep. Rick Lopes, D-24th District.

Lopes, a member of the board of directors for the New Britain-Berlin YMCA, was nominated by Chief Executive Officer Rich McCarty for his service to the organization and the city, according to Desiree M. Agosto, community development manager.

Lopes helped the New Britain-Berlin YMCA get a $610,000 state grant to replace the roof on its 50 High St. building and create a parking lot for the YMCA and the nearby New Britain Public Library and New Britain Youth Museum.
