To the Editor:

On behalf of the First Congregational Church of New Milford, I would like to take this time to thank our community for coming together in December 2014 for the fourth annual Luminary Night New Milford in support of the New Milford Community Fuel Fund.

On Dec. 21, friends and neighbors lit luminaries along their driveways and walkways for this fundraiser.

Because of your generosity, we are able to make a donation to the New Milford Community Fuel Fund, overseen by New Milford Social Services.

A special thank you to Sarah Albright, First Congregational choir members and carolers for bringing the spirit of the season with song through downtown that evening.

Thank you to the New Milford Lions Club, the New Milford Rotary, the Woman's Club of Greater New Milford and the Western Connecticut Health Network -- New Milford Hospital for embracing our mission and making a difference in our community.

Lastly, we would like to thank Deborah Rose, Norm Cummings and the Spectrum for press releases and coverage of the 2014 Luminary Night New Milford.
