It is a small way to give thanks to them and their families for all of the sacrifices they have made for us. We should never forget them and all they do, and this event is one way the community can celebrate them. We are especially thankful to our “General” sponsors: Colonial Loan Association, new to our community; and Network Technologies, US Cellular Authorized Agent for Seymour, serving our residents for 14 years now,” said Linda Karam, Chamber President.
