Hello Friends!

Happy Friday everyone! We are pleased to share the news of some great activities planned for the coming week.  Here we go!


Here’s a Great Way to Start the Weekend - Watch This 3 Minute Video – Milford at its Best!

Mayor Blake presented his State of the City address this week and as part of the festivities, he unveiled this VIDEO of Milford.  You are going to LOVE this!  Take a few minutes to watch this inviting and positive look at our beautiful hometown.  Extra special thanks to Julie Nash, Dir. of Economic and Community Development.  Makes us proud to call Milford ‘home.’


TOMORROW!!! Saturday, August 4: ADULTING 101, Milford Public Library, 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., a variety of mini-sessions all day long – FREE.  If you know anyone in the 18-27 year old range, then THIS is an event they will want to attend!  ADULTING 101 has been designed to provide ‘life lessons’ for our newest adults (and maybe some established adults could pick up a thing or two, as well!).  Here is the schedule – hope to see you there!

Wednesday, Aug. 8th:  Don Civitello Memorial Plaque Presentation, @ Foran High School, 9:15 a.m., public invited

We mentioned this event last week – and you may have seen the formal press release in our local papers.  Mark this beautiful event on your calendar.  If you’ve lived in Milford for a while, there’s no doubt you know the name Don Civitello.  As a way to acknowledge Don’s deep love for Milford and our children, we are honored to invite you to the dedication of a memorial plaque in his name at Foran High School at 9:15 a.m. on Wednesday, August 8th.  All are welcome to attend this very special event. 


Have a great week, everyone!
