The VFW Post No. 1672 Ladies Auxiliary in New Milford is sponsoring a luminary event honoring veterans.

Luminaries will be sold periodically between now and Veterans Day outside Walmart, Stop & Shop and Northville Market and at other public and private events, as well as Nov. 10 at 8 p.m. on the Village Green.

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. 11 at dusk and remain on until they burn out.

Proceeds will benefit military families and veterans in need.

For more information, or to order a luminary, call 860-354-7995.
