To the Editor:
The volunteer firefighters of Water Witch Hose Co. No. 2 of New Milford recently held our annual holiday party for the members and their families at our firehouse.
The party, which was attended by over 120 people, consisted of a pot-luck dinner, crafts for the kids, a visit from Santa and a large raffle.
The festivities, particularly the raffle, would not have been possible without the monetary support and numerous prize donations from many local businesses ranging from various unique and practical items to gift cards.
We would like to thank the following local merchants for their generous donations: 1st and 10 Sports Bar and Grill, A Muddy Paw Pet Salon, ABC Fuel Oil, Affordable Automotive, Bank Street Theater, Black Swan Fireside Hearth and Home, Brickhouse Pizza and Restaurant, Bruce Taylor Heavy Equipment Repair, Candlewood Valley Country Club, Classic Liquors, Colosseo Restaurant, CVS, Dagwoods New American Lounge, Dolr Bill’s Bowling, Dwayne Acton, Edward Jones Financial, El Coyote, Elite Gymnastics, Fred Aldrich, Full Circle Promos, Goatboy Soaps, H.H. Taylor and Son Hardware, Hobbytown, Holiday Restaurant, House of Warmth, Hometown Liquors, Housatonic Valley Insurance, Italia Mia, Jamie Durante, Joe’s Salon and Spa and Jo-Jo’s Deli.

Additional thanks go out to Jo-Jo’s Deli and The Cookhouse for their food contributions toward our dinner.
We extend a special thank you to our brother firefighters of the Northville Volunteer Fire Department for their donation of a live Christmas tree that was used to decorate the firehouse for the party, as well as Doug Baldwin at Fieldstone Nursery for putting together the large wreath for the front of the firehouse and making beautiful table centerpieces for the evening.
Finally, we need to thank Walter Bayer for his special appearance (along with Timmy the Elf), which all of the children greatly enjoyed.
We look forward to continuing our strong community relationships with these local merchants and individuals as well as forming even more new connections in the future.
It is nice to know that so many support what we do to protect the community 24 hours per day, seven days per week, 365 days per year.Read Full Article
