There’s a lot of spirit here in Wilton as another season rounds the corner. You can see it under the Friday night lights as you approach Fujitani Field and hear it from the marching band. You can feel it as the veterans pass in review and the color guard stands tall in its traditional and patriotic routines. You can sense it in the electric atmosphere of the annual town meeting and when citizens rise to present their comments at committee gatherings.
The spirit is in evidence at library book sales, garden club displays and in welcoming Santa to the town center. It shows itself in the dedication of emergency response teams, volunteers at pancake breakfasts, and steadfast collectors of petition signatures in support of actions, improvement, and change.
