    To the Editor:

    The Newtown Junior Women’s Club would like to thank the community for their generosity, which again made our annual Tag-A-Gift program a heartwarming success.  “Wishes” were provided to us by The Newtown Fund and Social Services.  Tags were created and hung with a handmade ornament on a tree/wreath at several locations for the public to take and purchase the gift.
