To the Editor:

The people of New Milford love our Village Green and take a lively interest in it.

The Garden Club of New Milford looks after the gardens around town hall, the war memorials and the large concrete tubs on the sidewalks. Often, when we are planting or watering, passersby will stop and tell us how much they appreciate our work.

In the last several years, many of the businesses around the Green and on the adjoining streets have been planting a wonderful variety of gardens, hanging baskets and containers.

These displays have made a great difference to the area, making it much more cheerful and inviting.

The Garden Club appreciates all the time and expense this community has invested in the beautification of our downtown.
