Veterans Day Parade is Sunday in Milford

The city will host its Veterans Day parade on Sunday, Nov. 6, in downtown Milford at 2 p.m.

All units and marchers are asked to assemble at the Daniel Wasson Field parking lot at 1 p.m. The grand marshal and guest speaker will be Aleks Morosky, who serves as the national legislative director for the Military Order of the Purple Heart in Washington, D.C., where he is responsible for communicating the order’s legislative agenda to members of the United States Congress, federal departments and agencies, and the nationwide veterans community.

Morosky is a life member of VFW Post 7788 in Milford.

The city of Milford’s Veterans Day wreath-laying ceremony will be held on Friday, Nov. 11, in front of City Hall at 10:45 a.m. All are invited to attend this short but moving ceremony.

Milford Concert Band performs after parade

The Milford Concert Band, under the direction of Duane Berge, will present “Veterans in the Community” in conjunction with Milford’s office of the mayor on Sunday, Nov. 6, at 3 p.m. at Milford City Hall.

The performance begins its holiday concert season around town.

The concert will take place after Milford’s Veterans Day parade.

Several members of the Milford Concert Band are military veterans.

The program consists of pop and rock medleys from the 60s, 70s and 80s, as well as Broadway and movie soundtrack music.

“We play music appropriate for all ages and listening preferences,” said Berge. “We put smiles on everyone, toddlers to seniors.”

The concert is free (donations welcome) and open to the public. Milford City Hall is located at 110 River Street, across from the Parsons Government Complex.

The community is welcome at the end of the parade to meet the band and share in concert preparations.

The Milford Concert Band is the official community band for the city of Milford.
