To the Editor:

On behalf of the Rotary Club of New Milford, we send a heartfelt `thank you' to the New Milford business community and local residents for the outstanding support shown for our 31st annual golf fundraiser, the Jim Faure Memorial.

Many thanks to our hospitality sponsors: Bank Street Theater, Andy's Auto Coach Works and Wildacres Consulting; to our hole-in-one sponsors: Arthur H. Howland & Associates and Good Works Insurance; to the many on-course sponsors and to all of the merchants who provided wonderful items for our raffles.

We are especially thankful for the tireless members of the Rotary Club and their families, for time spent to solicit donations and for their help at the tournament, and to the Faure family for their continued support.

The success of our annual golf tournament, along with our other fundraisers, enables us to provide more than $45,000 in donations to community organizations and charities and to fund our NMHS scholarship program.

The Rotary Club of New Milford looks forward to continuing the mission of "Service above self."
