To the Editor:

The Danbury & New Fairfield Woman’s Club wishes to express our loving thanks to many special people.

Once a year the Woman’s Club hosts its fundraiser of selling poinsettia plants for the holiday season.

This past year’s drive was very successful, which only enables our club to spread more love back to the greater Danbury area.

We do that by offering dozens of monetary gifts to our local nonprofit charities and agencies in April and later five high school scholarships.

First, love and thank you are sent out to the thousands of orders for poinsettias from our citizens in the greater Danbury area.

It was a record year of sales. Thank you one and all.

Secondly, much love and thank you are extended to the Danbury Men’s Club, which assisted us on delivery day with their muscles, vehicles and humor in the rain.

Thirdly, volunteers from Western Connecticut College; Roberto Caceres, Brennen Diaz, Nata Asani, Nurisha Kaba, Sara Tenke, Amanda Gonzales and Natakia Hart, to name a few.

Their smiles in the rain, their helpfulness in lifting and following requests certainly help our day run smoothly.

Many thanks to the Police Athletic League for the use of its building (PAL) on our busiest day of the year.

All our poinsettias, when unloaded from the nursery’s trucks, just about covered the basketball court.

And there isn’t success without getting the word out into the community.

This is where we wish to thank The News-Times and The Patch, The Greater New Milford Spectrum and New Fairfield’s Citizen Tribune for all their generous coverage of the Woman’s Club events.

To all of you our heartfelt thanks from the Woman’s Club of Danbury and New Fairfield.
