Benefit slated soon to assist injured resident

A benefit get-together to raise funds for New Milford resident Jim Colville, who recently suffered a debilitating injury, will be held Nov. 21 from 1 to 6 p.m. at the VFW Hall on Avery Road.

"He's smiling because the prognosis is good," read the release to the newspaper, "[but] it will be a year before he can work again."

A donation of $20 is asked for those aged 12 and older. Children aged 11 and younger will be admitted free.

For information or tickets, call Lee Colville at 860-354-3841.
