This year has been like no other. Large groups and events have been put on hold, distancing has become the norm, yet Milford still wants to have some FUN!

Although the St. Patrick’s Day Parade will not take place this year and Literacy Volunteers will not be able to host the Leprechaun Leap, we still need your participation. We may not be able to gather together, but our Shamrocks will!

Shamrocks on the Green will be co-hosted by the Irish Heritage Society (through its 501(c)(3) affiliate, Slainte Milford, Inc.) and Literacy Volunteers of Southern CT (501(c)(3). Would you consider purchasing a Shamrock to decorate which will support Irish cultural and charitable activities, and essential literacy needs in our community?
