Wilton Center sparkled over the holiday season thanks to the giant lit snowflakes that adorned 54 of the town\u2019s lampposts. Next year, members of the Making Wilton Beautiful initiative and the Wilton Garden Club hope to make the town shine even brighter. They are launching a fundraising campaign to raise $8,400 to purchase an additional 24 snowflakes. This will enable them to extend the holiday light display all the way down River Road to Horseshoe Pond. Currently, only the lampposts along Old Ridgefield Road, Center Street and a portion of River Road are illuminated. \u201cFestively decorated town squares add a joyous feel and holiday cheer to the center of town. It encourages people to get out of the house and stroll the streets. It\u2019s healthy and peaceful, which is particularly welcome during troubling times and promotes a robust dining and shopping environment for the town\u2019s merchants,\u201d campaign co-chair Suzanne Knutson said. The idea for more lights sprang from the community. \u201cThis past holiday season we heard from a lot of people urging us to extend the snowflakes all the way down River Road,\u201d Knutson said. \u201cWe\u2019d love to do that, but the snowflakes are expensive. Each one costs about $350. We figured we\u2019d appeal to the community and see how much money we can raise. That\u2019ll determine how many snowflakes we can buy. The supplier is having a sale right now, so there\u2019s a sense of urgency to get this done immediately. Raising $8,400 is an ambitious goal, but the snowflakes are a long-term investment in the town\u2019s beautification.\u201d Contributions, and donations of all sizes would be appreciated in order to complete the project, Knutson said. \u201cEvery donation, large or small makes a positive difference in enhancing the beauty and festiveness of our town,\u201d she said.
