To the Editor:

Happy fall!

What a wonderful summer it was. Through the generosity and support of the New Milford community, the new creative playground fund exceeded the $50,000 goal.

In just a few months, the community came together and accomplished something amazing. With the matching [and anonymous] $50,000 donation, we have raised more than $110,000... and counting.

The town has now initiated the bidding process for playground equipment. We'll keep you posted on the progress.
