Letter: Santa hayride draws hundreds

To the Editors:

The Wilton Parks and Recreation Department held its annual Senior Holiday luncheon on Friday, Dec. 7.

About 50 seniors attended and were served a delicious lunch from Wilton Pizza. They sang Christmas songs and even a few played instruments to music by Willie Nininger.

We are very pleased to say we were able to raffle off enough prizes so every senior could go home with a little something to brighten up their holiday.

We would like to thank the following businesses in town for their support and generous donations:

Fairfield County Bank,Wilton Hardware, Tusk & Cup, Hunan Café, Caraluzzi’s, Wilton Historical Society, Village Market Dunkin’ Donuts, Lang’s Pharmacy, and Ambler Farm.

On Friday, Dec. 14, Wilton Parks and Recreation staff held its Annual Santa Hayride at Ambler Farm. Such a beautiful night for this free community event! Over 500 residents enjoyed sugar cookies, hot chocolate, and bonfire to keep warm and the children were able to see Santa! Santa sang Christmas carols with everyone and asked each child what they would want for Christmas. Wonderful to see the excitement on the children’s faces!

Thank you all for coming and we would all like to wish everyone a happy, healthy and safe holiday season.
