The Town of New Milford in collaboration with Mayor Pete Bass and faith leaders throughout the community will host a special “Night of Hope” on the Village Green Aug. 29 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

The event will center around the bandstand and include encouraging words and prayers from faith leaders as well as uplifting music from a live band of local musicians and singers highlighting the message hope where help is needed.

Attendees should bring chairs and/or blankets and adhere to state and local CDC guidelines for social distancing, mask wearing and hand sanitization.

“I believe that our community is hungry for a positive message and a time where we can join to reflect and praise the beautiful community we reside in,” the mayor said.
