To the Editor:

On behalf of AARP New Milford Chapter 3241, I would like to thank New Milford businesses for their generous donations toward our May tea and fundraiser.

Your commitment to helping our chapter in this annual event is sincerely appreciated.

Each year AARP continues to advance its mission of "to serve, not to be served."

Through various programs such as this, we see many lives changed for the better.

This one event is a great draw for our members, a way to keep us active and involved in the community.

Our mission is to encourage seniors in keeping with the ideals of "friends helping friends."

The May tea offers a way for us to stay connected with New Milford’s businesses. Your gift cards provide members with a reason to "shop New Milford" and support the local businesses.

Thanks again for your generous support of our efforts.

Jean Ritchie

President
