Auxiliary extends thanks for luminary ‘support’
To the Editor:
VFW Post 1672 in New Milford and its auxiliary wish to thank all those who helped to support our auxiliary’s 2017 fall “Luminaries for Veterans” program.
Our thanks to UB Litchfield LLC, J&J Printing, Northville Market, New Milford Senior Center, St Paul’s Church in Brookfield, the patrons of Walmart and Stop & Shop, those who promoted the sale with their time and/or publicity help, and all others who purchased luminaries or donated approximately $150 to our Buddy Poppy relief fund in support of our veterans.
Because of your generosity, $668 was raised for the Fisher House under construction on the VA West Haven Campus, and an additional $668 for Veteran and Military Family Support Programs.
We also greatly appreciate the help of the New Milford Youth Agency members who helped set up the luminaries and the members of Boy Scouts of America Troop 432 who volunteered to help remove the luminaries Nov. 11 after the ceremony on the Village Green.
A warm thank you.
VFW Post 1672 Auxiliary
