A plaque at Traynham Park, dedicated December 16, 1995, and shown at right, includes this statement:

Gary Traynham has made a second career out of his devotion to the youth and sports activities of this community. From many years as sports editor of the local newspaper, he has been a tireless volunteer for many sports organizations in town by serving in a wide variety of roles from coach to league president. The enthusiasm with which he approached these roles has been contagious to all.

One of the city councilmembers signing the dedication is Jack Slaven, after whom Jack Slaven Park is named.
