To the Editor:

I would like to thank everyone who contributed to my Eagle Scout project, which was a 5K road race benefitting New Milford Social Services.

I would like to thank Stop and Shop, Big Y, Shop Rite, Stew Leonard's and Wal-Mart for their generous donations of refreshments and supplies.

I'd also thank J.D. Tucker, Tivoli, The Cookhouse, Holiday Restaurant, Brickhouse Pizza, All Aboard Pizza, The Sweet Spot and Bank Street Theater for donating prizes, area newspapers for publicity, and Staples for printing flyers.

I would also like to thank members of Roxbury Ambulance and all of the scouts and dads from Troop 58 who helped with my project.

Lastly, I'd like to thank all of the runners and walkers who participated, and the friends and neighbors who couldn't participate but still donated.

It was a great day for New Milford Social Services and all of the proceeds will help fund the food and fuel banks, as well as the other needs of local families.
