Joining forces with Circle of Care, a Wilton-based nonprofit that assists families of children with cancer, the Board of Selectmen declared Monday, Sept. 10, as Childhood Cancer Awareness Day. The selectmen passed the resolution at their regular meeting Tuesday night.

The founders of Circle of Care are Wilton residents Liz Salguero and Dawn Ladenheim. The resolution is aimed at supporting children suffering from cancer in area communities. It was also passed by the town of Fairfield.

The selectmen also adopted a resolution designating the month of September as Leukemia, Lymphona and Myeloma Awareness month in town. Mr. Brennan noted the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society has an office in Wilton.
