To the Editor:
On behalf of Saint Rose Parish, I want to thank everyone who supported and attended our Annual Parish Carnival. We were truly blessed with five “rain-free” nights, incredible parish volunteers and a dedicated group of men and women who coordinated the event for us. The presence of the Newtown Police Department gave a feeling of safety and security to our volunteers and guests.
