We want to thank the Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire and Rescue Co. for allowing us to use their incredible space once again this year.

    To the Editor:

    On behalf of S.H.O.P. (Sandy Hook Organization for Prosperity) I would like to thank Bill Halstead and his team at Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire & Rescue for assisting in putting up and maintaining the flags in Sandy Hook Village.

    I would also like to thank Anthony Capozzielllo and his team at the Highway Department for assisting with the flower boxes in Sandy Hook Village.  Sandy Hook Village is truly a place within us all.
