With giving, comes receiving

We live in a new time, one where it is encouraged that we wear a mask to further stop the spread of the coronavirus. Communities, including the Greater New Milford area, have stepped up, to provide homemade masks to those who have not been able to get or need more masks. The Rotary Club of New Milford did its part Saturday when it hosted a mask giveaway at the John Pettibone Community Center. A bag with five disposable masks was given to each motorist who stopped by. The event was co-sponsored by Masks for CT, the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven, Masks for Heroes, Housatonic Business Alliance, Goatboy Soaps, On the Mend, Webster Bank and WFSB3. Above, a resident holds up a "thank you" note in the shape of a heart to show her appreciation for the Rotary Club and the mask giveaway.
