Auxiliary seeks luminary donations
The Auxiliary of the New Milford VFW Post 1672 is sponsoring its annual “Light Up the Night for Veterans” luminary sales fundraiser.
Luminaries will be sold periodically between now and Veterans Day at various locations in town.
For $5, a resident may purchase a luminary bag to decorate and honor a veteran's name.
The bags will be lighted and placed around the lower section of the Village Green Nov. 10 at 8 p.m. and remain on until after Veterans Day ceremonies.
Proceeds will be used to help fund the Vietnam Veterans Traveling Wall, which will come to New Milford in October, and for other veterans programs, including military families’ unmet needs.
For more information, or to order a luminary, call 860-354-7995.
