To the Editor:

I would like to thanks the local fire departments for the Festival of Lights parade in New Milford.

I understand we should give David Lathrop a special thank you for starting the event.

Without the dedication and time spent on this festive parade, we all would not have been able to enjoy it.

What a way to start the Christmas season.

Again, thank you for a job well done and appreciated.

Barbara Hager
