MILFORD -- Grab a shovel and head down to the Milford Library at 9 a.m.
A city-wide Shovel Brigade is being organized by local volunteers to help our neighbors clear residential sidewalks. All able-bodied men and women willing to volunteer to shovel are asked to meet this morning at 9 behind the Milford Public Library at the Fowler Field parking lot with their shovels.
Maps of the areas in need of clearing will be distributed to volunteer teams.
"As Milford digs out from this unprecedented, record-setting blizzard, and as public works continues to clear snow from our roadways and public areas, volunteers can help the community by lending a hand in those neighborhoods where help is needed to shovel sidewalks - -making it safe for children to walk to their bus stops and homes when schools reopen.'' Mayor Benjamin G. Blake said.
Volunteers from Milford's police and fire departments, as well as local scout troops and youth sports organizations will also be on hand.
