To the Editor:

The American Legion C. Edward Hine Post #147 would like to thank the businesses and organizations and individuals that made the recent Wreaths Across America wreath-laying event a great success.

We especially want to thank Southbury Printing, Hine Brothers, H.I. Stone Construction, New Morning Country Store, Lake Wine and Spirits, Dr. Jack Zazzaro DMD, Dr. Perry Kest DDS, the South Britain Congregational Church Ladies Organization and all the individuals who donated funds or purchased wreaths.

A special thanks goes out to all the volunteers and groups who participated in the event. Those groups were the Boy Scouts Troop 1607 and Troop 60, Pomperaug Girl Scouts, Oxford High School cheerleading S\squad, American Legion Post 204 and the VFW Post 1607, the Knights of Columbus and all the individuals who were there in less than perfect weather conditions to honor Southbury’s deceased veterans.

Thank-you one and all.
