After the United States Postal Service honored mailman John Villa of Newtown for driving one million miles, the people who live along his Wilton route decided to do the same. Mary Jayne Lilley, a Wilton resident who lives on Villa\u2019s beat \u2014 Broad Axe Lane and Butternut Place \u2014 organized the celebration. \u201cWe all love him,\u201d said Lilley. \u201cHe\u2019s been delivering 20 years to this route. He\u2019s like family, so we decided to throw a party for him, for his achievement.\u201d On Feb. 20, Lilley invited 18 of her neighbors \u2014 stops of Villa\u2019s \u2014 over to her house on Broad Axe Lane. When the man of the hour arrived with his wife, Debbie, he was given a card that had been signed by everyone there. He got a small gift, too. \u201cWe just wanted to thank him for his wonderful service. He delivers to 500 families every day,\u201d Lilley said. Refreshments were served and Lilley and her guests offered a champagne toast in Villa\u2019s honor.
