To the Editor:

Many thanks to everyone who participated in the first annual Run for Play, a 5K run/walk to benefit the new creative playground.

Thanks to the generosity of the following, we were able to raise $3,200 toward the purchase of a new piece of playground equipment:

New Milford Hospital, Mitchell Fuel, the Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce, Gentile Tree, Paul Hulton, the Woman's Club of Greater New Milford and the Cafiero family.

Also, Candlewood Tool, Eastern Connecticut Specialty, the Law Offices of Cecilia Buck-Taylor, Joe's Salon, New Milford Sports Club, Top Flight, Stop and Shop, Big Y and Northville Market.
