To the Editor:

The Wilton Chamber of Commerce’s 7th Annual Street Fair & Sidewalk Sale on Saturday, July 20, was indeed our hottest event ever! It was truly great to see the spirit of all our sponsors, vendors, volunteers and entertainers beat the heat to create a successful StreetFair/Sidewalk sales event! Hot or not, it was great to see people, their families and their dogs all out strolling our town enjoying the shopping, the food, the entertainment and time together.

Hundreds of residents and visitors from surrounding areas attended the annual summer event, which included over 85 participants, live music, entertainment and a number of children’s activities. All of this happens only with the support of our sponsors and volunteers. We want to thank them all and all our vendors and attendees!

A very big thank-you goes to our Title Sponsor, Kimco Realty and event sponsors Blue Buffalo, Wusthof, and Pet Pantry. The great entertainment was graciously presented by Fairfield County Bank and Dynamic Edge, Physiotherapy, and supported by Gregory and Adams, P.C., Berkshire Hathaway, and Arista Industries plus media sponsors Wilton Magazine/Townvibe, Fairfield County Talk Radio and 95.9 the Fox.

Thank you to everyone who made this summer festival on a hot, hot day a success! We are very grateful to the hard work provided by our volunteers, especially Mark Ketley and Joanie Ketley; Pat Russo and the Wilton CERT; the Wilton Volunteer Ambulance Corps; Wilton Police, with special thanks to Officer Eric Patenaude and his dog Baso for a great demonstration; Wilton Parks and Recreation; MCL Ventures; Hastings Real Estate; the American Legion; the School of Rock; and the Town of Wilton for supporting the event.

A special thank-you to, Carol Johnson, Robin Roscillo, and to all our Chamber volunteers for set up, clean up and assistance with all of our vendors. Thank-you John DiCenzo, Jackie DiCenzo, Tom Sato, Kevin Vallerie, Brian Perry, Jeannette Ross, Nancy Saxe, Katherine Russian, and Sean Lentner.
