Thanks to the enthusiasm and cooperation of multiple town officials, Citizens for Milford has arranged for the planting of a Christmas Tree as a gift to the community in Draper Memorial Park. Standing at almost nine feet tall, the Fraser fir will grow about one foot each year. We hope the Christmas tree will serve as a symbol of peace and a gesture of good will to all Milford residents and visitors for generations to come.
We would like to extend our sincerest appreciation to following folks who helped us gain the appropriate approvals, purchase the tree, and coordinate the planting:
- Milford Parks Commissioners, including Mike Bresciani, Parks Director.
- Scott Crisafulli, Highway Surveyor.
- Chuck Reneau, Tree Warden.
- O’Donnell Electric Company, which donated electrical services for lighting.
- Peter Mezitt, owner of Weston Nurseries, who extended a substantial discount on the purchase.
- Nancy Purdue, the Weston Nurseries saleswoman who offered expert advice.
