To the Editor:
On behalf of our committee, I would like to thank all who participated in our 9/11 ceremony, helping to make it a success.
I'd like to recognize all of New Milford's first responders (ambulance, fire and police) for their dedication and sacrifice to our community.
Thanks to Sgt. Warren Hengel, U.S. Marine Corps, and Jeff McBreairty, American Legion Post 31, who assisted the Korean Wars veterans, Chapter 11 of Danbury, in the changing of the colors.
St. Francis' choir sang "Our Hearts were Broken Today," composed by Doreen Gray, dedicated to 9/11, and closed the ceremony by singing "God, Bless America," joined by Cathy Reynolds. Patrick Maguire played "Amazing Grace" on bagpipes.
Thanks to the local veterans and the Korean War veterans of Danbury who participated in the ceremony, and to Stop & Shop for the flowers for the memorial monument.
