To the Editor:

To all the veterans in the area, and to all the patriots:

Thank you for your service to our country. Thanks to all who put together the heartfelt ceremony Nov. 11 on the Village Green.

And to all the VFW Ladies Auxiliary who helped with the luminaries, thank you.

The candlelight for a veteran event was a success. It was lovely to see the lighting of the Green to our troops.

Especially thanks to Lynn Peet, Pat Brought, Ellie Baldwick and our treasurer, Ann Lowell.

It snowed, it rained and the wind howled. We waited it out, a typical New England weather moment (hour) and set out the luminaries.

They made it through the night.

As our troops everywhere "make it through the night." God bless them all.
