MPS ‘Most Prevailing Stories’ Episode 5 Released Today
Here’s a wonderful treat on a Friday! A brand-new podcast episode went live today (Episode 5). This episode covers high school athletics, Thanks for Giving, and United Way. And make sure you take a listen of the other 4 episodes, if you haven’t already! Good stuff……
‘Thanks for Giving’ Food Drive: Bring in Donations by end of day Thursday (11/10)
Donations have been coming in all this week – and we are extremely grateful. And, if you are planning to purchase your donation items over the weekend, thank you in advance! The need in our community is always great and we learned that the Milford Public Schools contributions equate to approximately a third of all food items collected by the Scouting community each year. Let’s continue the tradition!!
To donate, simply send in your items with your student – there’s a collection box located in your child’s school. To get an idea of the types of items that are recommended, please take a look at the FLYER with more details.

MAC’s Buoy Tree Returns! Purchase Your Buoys Now and Join the Fun
The MAC (Milford Arts Council) is super excited to announce the return of last year’s favorite NEW holiday tradition: the Buoy Tree at Lisman Landing! This show-stopper gained a lot of foot traffic and photo-taking last year – and we believe this year it will attract even more. Everyone and anyone can participate; buoys must first be purchased online ($35 per family/individual, $75 per business sponsor). Once you’ve made your purchase, you may pick up the buoy (starting today) at the MAC. Additional information and details are available on the MAC website. Click here for the flyer.
