To the Editor:

On behalf of the 300th anniversary committee of the First Congregational Church, I would like to thank the people of New Milford and surrounding communities for supporting our Yankee pot roast fundraising dinner and silent auction Sept. 24.

The dinner was held to kick off our campaign to replace the failed roof truss of our historic meeting house.

Our next fundraising dinner will be April 2017 and we once again look forward to your support as we work hard to “Raise the Roof” so we can continue to serve and mission to our community and beyond.

Barbara McGiver
