The holiday celebrations continued in Milford as the Milford Senior Center hosted the People’s Place Choral Breakfast on Saturday, December 7 during People’s Day. Visitors could do some holiday shopping with the many vendors available in the lobby of the center, as well as enjoy a breakfast of scrambled eggs, hash browns and other foods cooked by volunteers at the center.
Santa and Mrs. Claus were on hand at the Senior Center as well, enabling the many small visitors at the event to provide Santa with their wish list for Christmas. In addition, face painting was available, a hit with many of the children in attendance. Performances by Diamond Dance Company and students at the Delaware Music School, along with other performers entertained those who came to enjoy breakfast and do some holiday shopping.
People’s Day is an annual event held throughout Milford to celebrate services to people in the community and encourage individuals to explore what the town has to offer.
