To the Editor:

New Milford Parks & Recreation would like to thank everyone who participated Oct. 24 in the soggy, windy, Halloween trick-or-treating.

Our sincere thanks to all who braved the weather conditions and all the downtown merchants who passed out Halloween treats.

The Parks & Recreation staff of Dan Calhoun, Lorraine McEntee and D.J Marty Carlson did a great job.

Our appreciation goes to Webster Bank as the premier sponsor of this event.

Thanks also to the Village Center Organization and the Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce, and to the Greater New Milford Spectrum for promoting the event.

A special thanks to our volunteer judges -- Marla Scribner, Cindie Niemiera and Carol Sutton.

Thanks again for all your help and generosity.

Eleanor K. Covelli

Assistant Director

New Milford
