To the Editor:

We wish to recognize a group of students who spent Veterans Day helping two local residents in need.

In coordination with the New Milford Senior Center, the Youth Agency started the day helping a local retired Army veteran with leaf cleanup in his yard.

The crew spent the second half of the day raking and dragging leaves for a grandmother and her family.

Both homes provided refreshments and thanked our crew for their time and caring.

The following volunteers range from seventh to 12th grade from Schaghticoke Middle School and New Milford High School:

Maggie Donohue, Kayla Garcia, Jherri Garcia, Shane McWilliams, Rebecca Collentine, Zoe Dreyfus, Bailey Walsh, Kory Cyr, Kyler Cyr, Tessa Young, Talullah Comasky, Jessie Kilmer, Tyler Potts, Kirsten Potts and Ryan Titmas.

These students worked very hard, but made it a fun and successful day.
