To the Editor:

Senior Night was held Oct. 13 for the boys' varsity soccer team at New Milford High School.

Despite the blustery cold wind that blew down from the north and the rain that drenched us all, nothing could dampen the spirits of the varsity soccer boys who played on to victory against the varsity team from Stratford High School.

The evening was a great success due to local merchants who contributed their products and time to help make this a wonderful evening all around.

On behalf of all the parents and players, we would like to express our gratitude to the following businesses:

Berkshire Printing Inc. for producing the programs for the evening's festivities; Kat Art Graphics for making the posters for all the seniors to keep as a memento; Party Depot for supplying the green and white balloons for the team; and Ruth Chase Flowers for the beautiful roses they gave to each mother of the seniors.

Senior night was a wonderful evening. Proud parents watched as their sons performed as New Milford High School varsity soccer players.

Please remember the next time you need to purchase something to keep our local businesses in mind.

This is what small-town living is all about, local merchants and the townspeople of New Milford supporting each other.

Caroline and Bill Pearson
