MILFORD - Citizens for Milford, in partnership with Friends of the Milford Upper Charles Trail, is organizing the Seventh Annual Milford Beautification Day. Beautification Day is Milford’s annual clean-up event, which enables area residents, organizations, and businesses to work together to beautify our community by picking up trash around town. Milford Beautification Day will be held Saturday, April 23 (rain or shine) from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. All interested citizens are invited to meet with organizers anytime between those hours in the municipal parking lot across from Sacred Heart Church (5 East Main Street) to get supplies, instructions, and assignments.
Families, community groups, churches, local businesses, and teenagers who need to perform service hours are all invited to participate. Younger children are encouraged to attend as long as they are accompanied by a supervising adult.
Beautification Day Chairperson Amie Sanborn says, “Beautification Day provides a wonderful opportunity for residents to come together and demonstrate pride in our community by cleaning the parks and streets of Milford. We invite everyone to come to help, even for just an hour or two.”
Trash bags, gloves, safety vests, and water will be provided to all clean-up volunteers. Funds to purchase these items are being donated by the Friends of the Milford Upper Charles Trail, Milford Highway Department, and Amazon.
In conjunction with the efforts being organized for Beautification Day, the Milford Highway Department has arranged for volunteers from the Norfolk County Sheriff’s office to initiate the Beautification Day work by conducting a clean-up of main streets around town on April 21 and 22.
The two event sponsors are sincerely grateful for the assistance and support provided by the Milford Highway Department, Norfolk County Sheriff’s office, and State Representative Brian Murray. Representative Murray secured a $1,000 donation from Amazon for supplies.
