 Milford, A New Start


Memories come to my mind when I think what Milford means to me.

Ten years ago, a friend of my husband and I told us about a nice place by the water called
Milford –a perfect place to start a new life.  We decided to come and take a look at Milford.
When we got to the Milford Green by the Stone Bridge area, it started to become my dream
town.  Promptly we bought a house, close to the beach.  It was just the beginning of a nice and peaceful life around quiet neighbors, fauna and vegetation and a growing town. Read More…


Thank you United Way of Milford and the Deluca Foundation!

For the past six weeks, the computer class at the Literacy Center of Milford has been focusing on developing basic computer skills from opening and managing an email account, attaching documents to emails, to Microsoft Office Word and PowerPoint. Beyond the skills for using computers, one of the greatest accomplishments of this class is the increase of confidence of the participants to approach the use of computers. Helping the participants to feel free to explore and experiment with computers leads to faster and more effective learning. The comments from the participants regarding this class testify to the effective experience of learning computer skills that will help for current employment as to the pursuit of new work endeavors. It was a pleasure to be part of this experience and it would be a pleasure to repeat it in the near future. Click to read more.
