To celebrate 100 years of service to area communities, New Milford VNA & Hospice is hosting an Anniversary Party on the New Milford Green. The event will take place rain or shine on August 3rd. The event is from 4 to 10pm. Executive Director Kerri Brinkerhoff says the centennial celebration is a way to say thank you to the community for supporting the organization over the last 100 years.
Tickets are $15 per person, and includes food, music and other entertainment. Water Witch Hose Company #2 is doing the cooking for the community appreciation event. There will also be a Touch a Fire Truck, raffles and face painting.
New Milford VNA & Hospice provides home care, hospice and public health services to people in the 17 towns in and around the New Milford and Greater Danbury area. The organization was started in 1918 when a flu epidemic led to a number of deaths that surpasses all the military deaths in World War I and World War II combined.
Tickets can be purchased at the green on August 3rd, or in advance at the VNA office on Park Lane or online at NewMilfordVNA.org.
