Water Witch grateful for ‘support’ for holiday party

To the Editor:

The volunteer firefighters of Water Witch Hose Co. #2 of New Milford held their annual holiday party in December for the members and their families at the firehouse.

The party, which was attended by more than 100 people, consisted of a potluck dinner, crafts for the kids, a visit from Santa, and a sizeable raffle.

The festivities (particularly the raffle) would not have been possible without the monetary support and numerous prize donations from many local businesses ranging from various unique and practical items to gift cards.

We would like to thank the following local merchants for their generous donations: 1st and 10 Sports Bar and Grill, ABC Fuel Oil, Affordable Automotive, Agriventures Agway, Amanda Rose Salon, Bank Street Book Nook, Bank Street Coffee House, Bank Street Theater, Blue Hills Barber Shop, Bravo NY Pizza, Brickhouse Pizza and Restaurant, Bruce Taylor Heavy Equipment Repair, Bulls Bridge Inn, Candlewood Animal Hospital, Candlewood Valley Country Club, Children’s Movement Center, Classic Liquors, Creative Haircutters, CVS, DinerLuxe, Dolr Bill’s Bowling, Dwayne Acton, Edward Jones Financial, El Coyote, Executive Cuisine, Family First Chiropractic, Fred Aldrich, Full Circle Promos, Hammerhead Martial Arts, Hobbytown, Hometown Liquors, Housatonic Valley Insurance, Italia Mia, Joe’s Salon and Spa, Johana’s Restaurant and Jo-Jo’s Deli.

Thanks also to the Law Office of Cecilia Buck-Taylor, Lennie’s Flower Shop, Levine Automotive, Lucia Ristorante, Main Moon, Marandola Fuel, Meadowbrook Gardens, Theresa Whalen, Natural Marketplace, New Posh Nail Spa, Norbert Mitchell Fuel, Nordica, Nutmeg Olive Oil Company, O’Connor’s Public House, Oriental House, Paul Morton Jewelers, Petrela Spa and Nails, Powerhouse Appliances, Rings End, Robert’s Auto, Ruth Chase Flowers, Salon Rene, Steve’s Deli, Stew Leonard’s, Tasty Waves, The Cookhouse, The Primitive Home, Three Brothers Family Restaurant, Tivoli, Town Square Media - I-95 / KICKS 105.5, Union Savings Bank, Valley Golf Center, Villarina’s Pasta and Fine Foods, West Street Power, Windmill Diner and Zaragoza Restaurant.

Additional thanks go out to 1st and 10 Sports Bar and Grill, Jo-Jo’s Deli and The Cookhouse for their food contributions toward our dinner.

We extend a special thank you to our brother firefighters of the Northville Volunteer Fire Department for their donation of a live Christmas tree that was used to decorate the firehouse for the party, as well as Doug Baldwin at Fieldstone Nursery for putting together the large wreath for the front of the firehouse and making beautiful table centerpieces for the evening.

Finally, we need to thank Walter Bayer for his special appearance — along with Timmy the Elf — which all of the children greatly enjoyed.

All of the dedicated volunteers and their families truly appreciate this generous support to our organization.

We look forward to continuing our strong community relationships with these local merchants and individuals, as well as forming even more new connections in the future.

It is nice to know that so many support what we do to protect the community 24 hours per day, seven days per week, 365 days per year.

Thanks again and be safe.
