Members of Downtown Milford Incorporated (DMI) are excited about the upcoming year and the opportunities it will bring.  In 2011 DMI plans to implement a strategy that will encourage quality development of the downtown area while promoting existing and tradition businesses.

Last year DMI was successful in facilitating a number of events for downtown Milford including the Holiday Stroll, the Santa House, the extension of store hours and the Bug and Bud Festival.  This year DMI plans to increase their programs in an attempt to recruit new businesses, enlist more volunteers, develop new downtown events and enhance the appearance of downtown. 

At their first meeting for the year of 2011 the Board of Directors for DMI voted unanimously to move forward on three new events for the town this year.  A St. Patrick’s Pub/Restaurant Crawl, five Free Summer Movie Nights and a Halloween Art Contest have all been approved. Executive Director Lorainne Dion has been working diligently to create unique opportunities for residents to experience downtown. “I am delighted that Downtown Milford, Inc. will be able to offer some exciting new events in 2011. It is our hope that these events will not only provide engaging experiences for our many residents and visitors but inspire return visits as well as promote downtown Milford’s historic commercial district as a shopping, dining, arts and cultural destination,” commented Dion.

The elected DMI Board Officers are Irv Ambrose (President), Leigh Nagy (Vice-President), Nancy Benson (Secretary) and Dan Marabello (Treasurer). The 2010 renewed DMI Board of Directors are DMI Board members Dan Bond, Mitch Edmonson, Leigh Nagy, Irv Ambrose and Nancy Benson.  The three newly elected members to the DMI Board of Directors are Richard Carmean, Gary Emory and Sarakate Hammer.  DMI has recently hired an Executive Assistant Sara Pletcher to help facilitate future plans.
