11To the Editors:
A thank-you to our great community and town! The Wilton Chamber of Commerce kicked off its annual HalloWeekend, which began on Saturday, Oct. 29, with the Pumpkin Parade, Trick-or-Treating and Halloween Portrait Fund-raiser. It was a splendid day and thousands of trick-or-treaters and their parents gathered in Wilton Center for some Halloween fun as they strolled through town collecting treats from Wilton merchants and businesses. Photographer Justin Baiad stepped up to photograph 48 families and raised over $1,000 for the Wilton Community Assistance Fund. Thank-you, Justin! Thank-you to Bankwell, our event sponsor! To all our generous merchants and businesses who participated and also joined us at the Gazebo! A special thank-you to Dr. Michael Crystal, our Cat in the Hat, and Carol Johnson and Michael Kaelin for hosting our table at the Chamber and distributing an amazing number of treats, and again for your assistance early Sunday for the race!
