Trotting Out The Thanks To All
To the Editor:
Thanksgiving morning in Newtown was again full of runners and walkers who turned up to earn their stuffing and help support the Cyrenius H. Booth Library by participating in this year’s ninth annual Newtown Turkey Trot. While it was a cold morning, there were hundreds of loyal runners and supporters. The C.H. Booth Turkey Trot Committee would like to acknowledge the generosity of the many organizations and individuals that contributed to making this event so successful and continuing this great Thanksgiving tradition. The proceeds from our sponsors, donors, and race registrants all combined to provide an important source of revenue to our beloved library.
Thank you to our title and founding sponsor, Newtown Savings Bank, as well as other important sponsors which included: C.H. Booth Board of Trustees, The Newtown Bee, Western Connecticut Health Network, Caldwell Walsh, Rankin Textiles, Faxon Law Group, Collins Hannafin, McKenney Mechanical, Woodbridge Running Co, Elevation Performance and Therapy, D’Amico Family Foundation, Newtown Center Pediatrics, Ingersoll Auto, Savings Bank of Danbury, Dental Associates, Newtown Veterinary Specialists, Caraluzzi’s, Bingley Design, Merryhill Child Care Center, Nutmeg Striders, Sippin Energy, Church Hill Physical Therapy, Brautigam Land Surveyor, Edward Jones, and Newtown Car Care.
We thank the Board of Education for the use of the Middle School and the Hawley School. The police department and highway department, as always, ensured the public’s safety. The library staff and board provided consistent support throughout the planning and execution of the event.
Finally, we salute the many volunteers who joined forces to execute this multifaceted event. We don’t have room to list you all, but we could not have done this without you.
See you next year on Thanksgiving morning!
