Downtown Milford, Inc. (DMI) will be holding its Annual Meeting on Thursday November 2, 2017 at 6:30pm. The gathering will be held at the Milford Senior Center. Members planning to attend should RSVP by October 26 to the DMI office.
The evening will open with a brief business meeting electing board officers and new board members. In addition, the new budget will be presented and approved for the new fiscal year. Any member that is unable to attend the meeting and wishes to vote can pick up a proxy ballot at the DMI office.
After the short business meeting the board members, local business owners, volunteers, invited guests and supporting members will be able to socialize and enjoy hors d’oeuvres and drinks including the Lady Bug cocktail in celebration of DMI’s Bug and Bud Festival, scheduled for next April which is already in the initial planning stage.
The evening will also honor current Board President, Lisa Fitzgerald, and Board Member, Brad Dennehy, both of which will be leaving the DMI Board. Lisa stated, “I have thoroughly enjoyed the last six years on the board, enjoying downtown events, and watching Milford grow into an even more fantastic place to live, work and play. To me, Milford has the perfect mix of small town community feel, family friendly activities, and unique social events for adults.” Lisa still plans to be involved with DMI at the committee level.
Lorraine Dion and Pat Sparks will be recognized for stepping in to oversee the DMI office and its nationally and state accredited MainStreet program. Eric Norenburg, Milford City Manager, and Diane Laird, State Coordinator Downtown Delaware, will get a special thank you for their assistance in the search for a new DMI executive director. This search ended with the hiring of new Executive Director, Murrie Zlotziver.
Murrie indicated, “this will be a wonderful moment to meet those in the Milford community that have given their time and have worked tirelessly to support DMI and its efforts to make Milford a successful River Town, Art Town, and Home Town.”
