A flag folding ceremony will also be performed by representatives from Cody-White Funeral Home.

According to Food Bank Manager, Sharon Brown, the food drive was successful. This month we can enjoy several concerts, the first, June 3 and 5th, “Ol Blue Eyes and his love songs and Sunday, June 16th, The Milford Concert Band will return to perform “Summer Fun in Milford”.

Program Director Amanda Berry is presenting in June, a variety of entertaining and informative programs. By the way, I have a number of cancelled stamps available for those who are interested. Call me at 203 877-5131. Last month’s “Arts A Bloom” was quite a success with members displaying their creative talents in paintings, ceramics, creative writing and knitting. Congratulations! The Center has an interesting collection of portraits, paintings, dedications and plaques displayed on the walls of our hall, a vivid picture of the activities and tributes shared by our members and the community.
