Dear fellow Wilton residents,

We hope you have had the time to go downtown and admire the lighted 3-ft. snowflakes decorating select lampposts. These were purchased through Wilton Garden Club‘s project, “Let’s Make Wilton Beautiful” in an effort to bring some much needed holiday cheer to downtown Wilton. These snowflakes cost $350 apiece and we managed to collect enough money from our very generous members and friends of members to buy the ones you are seeing now.

We have asked the community to help us collect enough money so that we can purchase more snowflakes for next year’s holiday season. A big thank you to all that have contributed, but we are still $1,500 short of the total $6,000 that we need to raise. The vendor is running a 2-for-1 sale in January and we’d really like to take advantage of that. Please consider donating any amount. Donations can be made via the Garden Club’s website.

Let’s light up our downtown!

Thank you,

Suzanne Knutson and Kelly Lash
