Amid confusion over possible safety threat, resignations roil foundation serving Civil War park

MIDDLETOWN — Following the resignations of two board members, the Cedar Creek Battlefield Foundation (CCBF) issued a statement on Tuesday saying the public’s safety at foundation-sponsored events “remains one of our highest priorities.”

Joe D’Arezzo, the foundation board’s president, resigned on Saturday, saying in an interview with The Star that he felt several members of the foundation’s 10-member board weren’t taking security and safety seriously enough at events like the annual Civil War Battle of Cedar Creek reenactment.
