To the Editor:

The Thrift Mart of New Milford would like to thank Bonni Manning and her staff for catering our annual luncheon.

What a wonderful surprise when Bonni offered to donate the luncheon!

She mentioned that most of her staff’s children had received scholarships from the Thrift Mart and this was their way of giving back.

Gary Goldring generously offered the 19 Main venue for our luncheon.

Not only was the food delicious and the ambiance wonderful, but we realized another $2,500 from our silent auction. Those funds will be added to the monies that we give to the town.

Our thanks to all the businesses who provided gifts for the silent auction.

On another note, we would like to thank everyone who donates clean and usable clothing and other goods to the Thrift Mart. To date, we have donated up to $3 million to New Milford. This year we were able to award $65,000 in scholarships.
