As the flower baskets on the lampposts will soon be taken down and replaced with colorful scarecrows, a great big round of applause is owed to five very generous individuals and their organizations: \u2022Charlie Howell \u2014 President, The Wilton Bank \u2022Chris Lavin \u2014 Principal, MCL Ventures \u2022Lee Wilson \u2014 President, Wilson Properties LLC \u2022Peg Koellmer \u2014 Owner, Realty 7 \u2022Bill McQuillan \u2014 Principal, Boylston Properties For many years, these civic-minded individuals and their organizations have quietly contributed annually to support the very popular flower basket program for Wilton Center. We are all indebted to them for their generosity. Special praise is also due Suzanne Knutson of the Wilton Garden Club, who each year selects the species for the baskets and coordinates closely with the grower, Tower Farms in Cheshire, who has also been supportive by maintaining their prices for several years. The town\u2019s Parks and Grounds Department also deserves praise for installing the flowers each year, plus fertilizing and watering them daily during the summer months. Without this daily care, the flowers would dry out and quickly wither. Our thanks and gratitude go out to these \u201cunsung\u201d heroes who silently and reliably contribute their talents and resources to make Wilton\u2019s village center an attractive and enjoyable shopping and dining environment. On behalf of the entire Wilton community, thanks again for all that you do for our town.
