To the Editor:

New Milford's Commission on the Arts wishes to especially thank Marandola Fuel Services for its generous donation toward our town's Edwin Kinkade Concert series.

We also wish to acknowledge and thank Mayor Pat Murphy, our Town Council, New Milford Parks & Recreation, the New Milford Police Department and the Traffic Authority for their work in making these concerts a success.

Our town's Commission on the Arts presents a wide variety of family-oriented arts programs throughout the year.

All our programs are free.

We are mostly recognized for the Edwin Kinkade Concerts on the Green and the Christmas Carol Sing (Dec. 20 this year), but we also schedule programs at the Railroad Station and other locations.

Personally, I wish to thank each of the people who give his or her time, expertise, and energy to the commission on the arts.

They are Charlotte Bostwick, Jim Scrimgeour, Barbara Payne, Sally Adams, Pat Greenspan, Joanne Lillis, Jayson Roberts, Jeremy Rumen, Susan Fogarty, Karl Hermonat and Bob Coppola.

New Milford is a great town.

The New Milford Commission on the Arts is proud to learn from the people who attend our programs that we help make New Milford an attractive community for those who live here, and a friendly stopping point for those who visit.
