To the Editor:

On behalf of the First Congregational Church of New Milford, I would like to take this time to thank our community for coming together in December 2013 for the third annual Luminary Night New Milford in support of the New Milford Community Fuel Fund.

On December 21, 2013, friends and neighbors lit luminaries along their driveways and walkways for this fundraiser.

Because of your generosity, we have been able to make a donation to the New Milford Community Fuel Fund, overseen by New Milford Social Services.

A special thank you to the residents of Meredith Lane, Twin Ridge Road, Whittlesey Avenue and others throughout New Milford who lit up the night.

Thank you to the New Milford Lions Club, the Rotary Club of Greater New Milford, the Woman's Club of Greater New Milford and New Milford Hospital for embracing our mission and making a difference in our community.

Lastly, we would like to thank Deborah Rose, Norm Cummings and The Spectrum for press releases and coverage of the 2013 Luminary Night New Milford.

Save the date and join us next year.

Luminary Night 2014 will be Sunday December 21, 2014.

Look for kits available starting Nov. 1 at www.nmchurch.org.
