Milford Public Library has announced their March programs

The month of March at the Milford Public Library is filled with fun events, some designed to get your body moving and others to move your mind.

The month begins with free line dancing with Lisa.

“This is a great way to have fun and exercise at the same time,” Carolyn Tabor, Program Coordinator at the library, said.

The free classes will be held every Wednesday from 5:45 to 6:45 p.m. in the Lions Club A and B Rooms. They end March 28.

On March 5, from 1 to 4 p.m., AmeriHealthCaritas Delaware Mobile Wellness Unit will  offer free blood pressure and BMI screenings for anyone who is interested. Free dental exams also will be available with on-the-spot assistance plus dental referrals.

“This program will include free cholesterol, HgA1C and lead testing for AmeriHealthCaritas members in Delaware,” Tabor said. “The library will be handing out free health and wellness-related educational material plus holding giveaways throughout this important event.”

A history mystery will be the topic of the American History Series offered by the Milford Museum with “The Disappearance of Amelia Earhart” March 9 in Lions Rooms A and B at 1 p.m.

“Amelia Earhart has been missing for 87 years and has become an American icon,” Tabor said. “This program will provide some of the truth behind the legend. Ric Gillespie, author of the new book ‘One More Good Flight: The Amelia Earhart Tragedy,’  will talk about the many myths and misconceptions about Earhart,”

He also provide evidence of her true fate, discovered during TIGHAR’s 34-years of scientific investigation.”

Gillespie’s book is soon to be published by the Naval Institute Press in Annapolis.

The final March program will be on the 12th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. when the Community Health Services Sussex County Mobile Unit will offer a variety of testing.

That will include HIV testing, counseling and referral; COVID-19 vaccinations and testing; blood lead screening; diabetes screening; and blood pressure readings

No appointment is necessary. Walk-ins are welcome.
