Wishing New Milford Well: Bob Hanna, Chair of the Fair, has come up with an exciting way for us to celebrate the Fair’s 50th anniversary with a give-back to the community. We are offering all non-profit organizations that are Chamber members in good standing an opportunity to participate in our bandstand replica wishing well fundraiser – Wishing New Milford Well. The bandstand replica is being built by a local resident and will be located in the Food Court area at Village Fair Days. The wishing well will have slots that correspond with non-profit organizations. Fairgoers will have the opportunity to donate to whichever organizations are near and dear to their heart. Come out and help our local non-profit organizations by Wishing New Milford Well.
Contest – Five Gets You Fifty PLUS: We will have a locked box that has a five number digital combination. At no cost, eligible persons will be able to input a 5 digit code. If their code unlocks the combination, they will win the prizes inside. We will also offer a second chance to win. If no one guesses the correct combination, we will hold a “second chance to win” drawing. The contest will run from noon to 7 pm with the second chance drawing being held Saturday at 8 pm.
