Preserving ‘The Crown Of Castle Hill’ for Newtown’s Future

To the Editor:

The Newtown Forest Association in partnership with the Catherine V. Hubbard Memorial Animal Rescue Center and the Aquarion Water Company has been working earnestly with a small army of volunteers to get the word out and solicit donations for the purpose of purchasing The Crown of Castle Hill to be preserved in it’s natural state in perpetuity. It is working and we have raised a substantial amount of capital  to do this in a very short period of time. We are closer than ever but are not there yet and more donations are needed to make this a reality.

I want to thank everyone for their efforts thus far in working with us . It is amazing what a group of concerned and generous volunteers have done to support this honorable effort. The world has seen our strength in the difficult times and this is an opportunity to show who we are when we work together for something  as wonderful as preserving the Castle Hill property. These collective efforts to preserve this property are a testament to our vision of a brighter future for our community here in Newtown. Together as a partnership with the help of volunteers, we have accomplished what would be tremendously difficult if not impossible to do alone.

We have eagerly shared this vision and our mission of preservation to maintain the natural resources and the rural character of this property with friends, neighbors, and the business’s within our community and the positive responses have been over whelming. This is the right time and the right place to make something truly special happen with The Crown of Castle Hill. We welcome and appreciate [the community’s] continued support in this effort. Work with us and share your expertise, knowledge and enthusiasm as we work to purchase and preserve a very special part of Newtown.  Please join us in making this miracle happen.

Warm and Sunny Regards,

Bob Eckenrode
