By Lee Nelson, Downtown Milford Inc.
After a winter that seemed to last six months, we are finally replacing our snow shovels with garden shovels, and it’s time to brighten our downtown streets with color and greenery. We are calling for volunteers to help plant the hay racks on Sunday morning, May 17 at 9:00 a.m. We meet at Dolce Bakery beginning at 8:45 a.m. for complimentary coffee – our thanks to Dolce. We hope to give our flowers a little extra grow time this year, so they can better withstand the summer season. We are also looking for weeders and waterers throughout the growing season.
Milford in Bloom is made possible with the help of three groups: The Design Committee of Downtown Milford; the staff of the City of Milford Parks and Recreation department; and most importantly, our friends and neighbors who dig into the dirt and into their pockets to supply the manpower and funds to make it happen. If you are able to lend a hand, please contact the DMI office at 839-1180 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Help Milford look beautiful with Milford in Bloom. Hope to see you downtown!
