To the editor:

The VFW Post 1672 and its auxiliary in New Milford wish to thank all those who helped to support our auxiliary's fall Luminaries for Veterans program, which outdid our expectations.

Our thanks to the New Milford Lions Club, UB Litchfield, LLC, Northville Market, New Milford Senior Center, St. Paul’s Church in Brookfield, the volunteers who helped offer the luminaries to the public, and most of all those throughout our area who purchased them in honor of our veterans and members of our military.

Because of your generosity, we were able to donate $800 to the Wounded Warrior Project.

Additionally, the Buddy Poppy donations added more than $2,000 to our post and our auxiliary relief funds, to be used for the support of our veterans and military members programs.

Thank you.

Patricia Brought

Auxiliary president

New Milford
