The following letter was sent to Amy Daniels and Ms. Doreen Godfrey of the Tokeneke Parents Association. It is reprinted here at the writer’s request.

\To the Editor:

On behalf of the Darien Department of Human Services, I wanted to thank you and the Tokeneke Pumpkin Fair Committee for your generous support.  The Pumpkin Fair Committee provided tickets to families in town with admission to the fair, punch cards for rides, and food vouchers for pizza and lemonade.  Local children were given the opportunity to enjoy rides, carnival games and pizza at the 53rd Annual Tokeneke Pumpkin Fair.  In addition, each of the children received a Tokeneke Pumpkin Fair tee shirt.  The joy you brought to these children (and their parents) was priceless!

Thanks, again, for helping us help others.  With your generous support, we were able to make the lives of some local children and families a little happier.
