There are lots of things to do in the Milford-Highland areas over the next few weeks as we move into the Christmas Holiday season. Here’s a sample of the upcoming events -
Nov 21 – Milford Historical Society General Membership Meeting – At the Milford United Methodist Church starting at 6:30 pm. Speaker. This is our favorite Thanksgiving Potluck Dinner. The MHS Board will be supplying the turkeys. Members are asked to bring a side dish , a salad or a dessert to share. Guests are welcome and should bring your own place settings, utensils and drinks. Our guest speaker will be retired Post Master Michael Schragg speaking on antique postal memorabilia. Mike brings a trailer full of antique postal items for us to learn about and I think you will truly enjoy this talk.
