Join us for the 1st Annual

Chief Richard A. Klett Golf Classic

On October 2nd, 2020 Richard A. Klett lost a six week battle with a very rare form of colorectal cancer.  His loss was a shock to all of us who knew and loved him.  He lived each day trying to make a contribution to his community, and leaving things better than he found them.  While he can no longer share his jokes and his unforgettable spirit, our family and friends believed we can carry on his legacy of supporting his community.  

We are proud to announce the first annual Chief Richard A. Klett Golf Classic.  Net proceeds will be used to fund an honorary NHS scholarship and assist in additional charitable contributions within the Town of Newington. He was an avid golfer and there is no better way in our eyes to hold this event to celebrate a man who gave it his all in all aspects of his life.  

Please join us on Saturday, August 28th, 2021 for the "Chief Klett Classic", where we will celebrate his life, and together will help in keeping his "community first" spirit alive. 

Richard Klett was a lifelong resident of Newington where he raised his three boys and spent 45 years with the love of his life Maureen. He was a 1967 graduate of the University of Connecticut prior to becoming a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army achieving the rank of Captain while in Germany and Vietnam.  He was hired as a Newington Police Officer in 1972, achieving the rank of Police Chief in 1994.  Upon his retirement from the Newington Police Department, he served as Director of Safety and Residency for the Newington Board of Education. He dedicated his life to serving his community and loved the people of Newington like family. Yet, he believed his biggest accomplishment was his family and his two amazing granddaughters who were the light of his eye!

We thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you there.
