To the Spectrum:

On behalf of the Board of Selectmen and the residents of the town of Roxbury, congratulations to The Spectrum on its 15th anniversary!

Since the newspaper's inception, the town of Roxbury has looked for coverage on its town events, meetings and newsworthy happenings.

We can forward a press release and know it will be in the following edition. It is an information source for those also interested in keeping abreast of the Shepaug community's sports, graduations and the arts.

It's nice to see year-to-year our Shepaug athletes showcased and how they're performing on game day.

The Spectrum provides Roxbury residents with information on our neighboring towns which includes town meetings and commissions, fairs and festivals, senior centers, libraries, churches and nonprofit organizations.

We know the staff on a first-name basis, like good friends.

We extend our best wishes to the editor and reporters for another 15-year run.

Again, with regards, congratulations!

Barbara Henry

First Selectman

Town of Roxbury
