To the Editor:

Have you been to Harrybrooke Park in New Milford lately?

If not, please go and check it out.

The board members and Friends of Harrybrooke Park have done an awesome job.

The grounds and shrubs are great and the flower gardens are beautiful.

People run, jog, walk, bike, skateboard and rollerblade. It's great exercise, healthy and free.

It is such a relaxing place. You see swans, geese, squirrels, rabbits, turtles and, yes, sometimes deer.

The park maintenance is done by donations and fundraising.

I would like to challenge all New Milford residents and local businesses to make a donation to Harrybrooke Park.

Let's all make a difference.

It's tax deductible and it will make you feel good.

Donations can be made to Harrybrooke Park, P.O. Box 364, New Milford, CT 06776.

I mailed my donation today. Now it's your turn.
