Hoops for Troops honors Milford's first responders

The third annual Hoops for the Troops Basketball Clinic will be held on Sunday, Sept. 11, at the Parsons Gym from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The clinic is for boys and girls age 7-15 and the cost is $25. Players can register online at hoopskillsbasketball.com. All proceeds will go to United for the Troops, a non-profit organization that sends care packages to U.S. soldiers serving overseas.   

This year’s event will be honoring Milford first responders. Clinic organizer Joe Meade, a retired New York City police officer, is inviting all Milford police officers and firefighters to be part of the two-hour event.

Enrollment is limited and each player will get a new camouflage basketball. The activities will include contests, raffles and prizes. For more information contact Meade at jmeade2873@aol.com.
