Celebrating New London Hospital and
              90 Years of Community Tradition

 2014 brings the 90th annual celebration of Hospital Days,
 a tradition built on the loyalty and admiration residents
 of our region have for our community hospital.

 Today that tradition continues. From July 31 to August 3,
 community members, volunteers, businesses, organizations,
 area visitors and New London Hospital (NLH) employees
 will come together to celebrate this long-standing
 fundraising event. The festivities feature an array of
 activities including the Hospital Days Parade, with a special
 90th celebration theme of Dancing Through the Decades.

 We hope you will be able to join us this summer on the
 New London Town Green to celebrate our community
 and our community hospital.

                                                       as a fundraiser to support the Hospital.
