SAVE THE DATE! Beautification Day Is April 27

All Milford Residents and Groups Invited to Volunteer to Help Clean Our Community!

Citizens for Milford is organizing the Ninth Annual Milford Beautification Day, 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 27th (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. 

 I hope that many people, young and old, join us to clean up the streets of Milford on April 27. It is a great way to meet others from the community who take pride in our town. —Beautification Day Chairperson Nancy Wojick

All Beautification Day volunteers are invited to a free lunch courtesy of the Milford Lions Club, whose members will be cooking hamburgers and hot dogs on site as a thank you to everyone’s efforts to beautify our community.

To help ensure the organizers can plan the clean-up routes for volunteers, the group is asking residents to report streets and neighborhoods that are of particular concern. Residents can submit their recommendations by emailing them to or by messaging them to the Citizens for Milford Facebook page (@CitizensforMilford) before 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 25.

Community involvement with Beautification Day continues to grow. Citizens for Milford is sincerely grateful to the Milford Highway Department, Friends of the Milford Upper Charles Trail, Milford Lions Club, and volunteers from Milford Federal Bank who are continuing their partnership with us. In addition, Citizens for Milford is pleased to welcome volunteers from Planet Aid and the Milford Doubletree Hotel, who will be joining our clean-up efforts this year. Combined with the work of all residents who continue to volunteer on Beautification Day, this event is a true demonstration of community pride.
