To the Editor:
Please join us in the community tag/vendor sale to benefit the Ayles family, on Saturday, October 11, from 10 am-2 pm, at 31 Pecks Lane, Newtown.
Kenny Ayles was a big part of our community. He volunteered his time and did so much for our town. Kenny passed away on August 21st, fighting a valiant fight for 6 years with brain cancer. Now we’d like our community to rally round the Ayleses and join us in this event to help them.

“The heart of a volunteer is not measured in the size, but by the depth of the commitment to make a difference in the lives of others.” —DeAnn Hollis
Surely, Anna Wiedemann embodies that definition. Anna is to be the recipient of the Jefferson-Jackson-Bailey Award on May 15. I am unable to attend so I would like to offer my congratulations and say a bit about the Anna I know.

Longtime Newtown resident Anna Wiedemann believes the measure of a person cannot be defined by their political persuasion. So it is fitting that the Democratic Town Committee’s Jefferson-Jackson-Bailey Dinner honoring her for service to the community and its citizens will be open to everyone — regardless of party affiliation.
Case in point: Republican First Selectman Pat Llodra said she is eager to attend; she sent in her reservation the minute she heard about the event.

Anna Wiedemann has been selected by the Democratic Town Committee as the honoree for their 2014 Jefferson-Jackson-Bailey Dinner. Ms Wiedemann was chosen because of her extensive contributions to Newtown.
A resident of Sandy Hook, Ms Wiedemann has contributed her time and talents to numerous groups in Newtown for more than a quarter century.
This is a bipartisan event; all are welcome.
