Musical instrument donations sought Linda Whittaker, band director at the Milford Senior Center is seeking used band instruments for use by band members.

Glockenspiel and clarinet plays needed According to Whittaker, \u201cA glockenspiel and B-flat clarinet have been donated to the Milford Senior Center for use by band members. Not many people have played glockenspiel, but if you have played piano or organ in the past, it would take only a week or two to learn to play the \u2018clock.\u2019 \u201cCall Linda Whittaker, Milford Senior Center Band Director at 203 877-2134 if you are interested.
