The annual observance of Reflections: A Tribute to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., will be held Sunday, Jan. 20, at 4 p.m. in Milford City Hall auditorium. This is the 27th year that the Milford Chapter of The Links, Incorporated, a women’s service organization, has sponsored the event.
The keynote address will be delivered by the Honorable Robin L. Wilson, who was appointed an assistant attorney general in 1986 by Senator Joseph I. Lieberman and worked in both the child support and workers’ compensation departments under both Senators Lieberman and Richard Blumenthal.
Judge Wilson sat in juvenile court for 3.5 years. She says “by empowering our youth, we empower our democracy.”
Superior Court Judge Wilson is currently assigned to the New Haven Judicial District where she presides over civil cases. She is serving her second eight-year term on the bench.
Other program participants will include state and city officials, including Milford’s Mayor Benjamin G. Blake, who will present a proclamation on behalf of the City of Milford.
A reception will immediately follow the program in the Fellowship Hall of First Baptist Church at 28 North Street. The program is open and free to the public.
