To the Editor:
From all reports, a fine time was enjoyed by everyone.
A special thank you to the following businesses, whose continued support has enabled us to offer a premier evening of dining, dancing and camaraderie:
Platinum sponsor -- Union Savings Bank.
Bronze sponsors -- Bakewell & Mulhare; Candlewood Mediation Center; Eagle Rock Day Camp; Edward Jones; Geron Nursing & Respite Care, Inc.; Innovative Dispute Resolutions; and Law Office of Katherine Webster-O'Keefe.
Copper sponsors -- Lewis Photography; New Milford VNA & Hospice; and Salisbury Bank & Trust.
Their participation as sponsors to our gala shows the support all businesses, both large and small, give to each other and the community.
With proceeds from fundraising events such as this and Village Fair Days, the Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce is able to keep membership dues affordable, offer a variety of free educational seminars and networking events, award scholarships to our local students, and host community events such as the New Milford fireworks celebration, the Harvest Festival and the holiday tree-lighting ceremony.
We'd also like to thank the following businesses for their generous donations to our gala give-aways:
All American Waste; American Pie; Bakewell & Mulhare; Bank Street Book Nook; Bella Jewelers; Bradford Renaissance Portraits; and Bull's Bridge Inn.
Also, Daffodil; Danbury Eye Physicians & Surgeons; Danbury Whalers; Down on Main Street; Dunkin' Donuts; Full Circle Promo; and Joe's Salon & Spa.
Also, New Milford Printworks; New Milford Spirit Shoppe; Nordica Toys; Ruth Chase Flowers; Salsa Restaurant; and Swank on Bank.
Tek Partners; The Social Strategist; Tivoli Restaurant; and the Western Connecticut Health Network.
We hope you will join us next year as we celebrate our 16th annual gala on Jan. 25, 2014.
