We will be collecting food for the Milford Senior Center Food Pantry at the September (9/27) and October (10/25) general membership meetings. Please bring at least one canned or dry food item, if possible bring more. The Senior Center houses a food pantry for all Milford residents, and many families are depending on this service to make it through the week. Current foods that are needed are:
Canned goods: Stew, spaghetti sauce, pasta, coffee, peanut butter, jelly, pancake mix, pancake syrup, granola bars, tea bags, juice and gravy mixes, soups, etc. Please check expiration dates before you bring it in to make sure it is not outdated.
If you have any questions please contact Nancy Smith at (203) 937-6330.
Next meeting is Wed., Sept. 28th at 7 pm at the club. The Milford Irish history project needs you! In order to keep this important project going, more members are still needed to participate! Plans are being made for mailings, and for interviews with IHSM members for the first phase of the project. Please attend this meeting and contribute a few hours of your time and energy and ideas! Some tasks that need to be completed are:
Mailings, follow-up phone calls, set-up appointments, possible interviews.
If you are unable to attend the September 28th meeting, but want to help, please contact Steve Kraffmiller at email@example.com.
Those individuals interested in participating in the genealogy project can download this form to get started.
Our beautiful clubhouse is nice and new and spanking clean….but help is needed immediately to help keep it that way! The IHSM Housekeeping Committee needs more volunteers to join crews to clean on a rotating schedule. Men and women are equally welcome, volunteer solo and you’ll be paired up with another volunteer, or sign on as a duo – best friends, sisters/brothers, you and your spouse – any combination of workers will do!
The building needs to be cleaned twice a week, once on Saturday morning, and once between Monday – Wednesday. A minimum of a two people are needed for each shift/crew, and it takes about two hours to dust, sweep, clean three bathrooms and vacuum. The larger the pool of volunteers, the less often each person would be scheduled! The goal is for each person to not have to clean more than ONCE a month, and to have a few substitutes to cover for illness, vacations, etc. Please help to keep our Clubhouse a place of which we can be proud. Please contact Kathleen Stern – see Contact page of website.
Volunteers needed! Terri Flynn and the Bar Management Committee are coordinating the scheduling of greeters to check membership cards and ID’s during the hours the bar room is open. Normal schedule for greeters will be Thursdays, 5 p.m. on; Fridays, 5 p.m. on; Saturdays, 12 p.m. on; and Sunday, 12 p.m. on. The hours for greeters will be divided into shorter, consecutive shifts. Please specify your preference for either an afternoon or evening shift. Signup sheets will be available at the clubhouse on the weekend for volunteering to serve as greeters. The same few members have been helping, so we would be grateful for more volunteers. To volunteer click here or contact Terri Flynn: firstname.lastname@example.org or 203-868-4505.
