5 Things You Need to Know Today: Aug. 20
Walk the dog, or just take a walk yourself, and help the Milford Humane Society and Milford Animal Control animals.
Our weekday morning column, 5 Things You Need to Know, provides you with information that can help you plan your day and give you some fodder for water cooler conversations.
1. If you have a dog, you know they need regular walks, even if you have a fenced backyard. Why not walk them for a good cause? A dog-walk to benefit Milford Humane Society and Milford Animal Control will be held at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. Registration is not required. The event is organized by the Young Adult Program at Milford Town Library. To join, just meet up in the library parking lot. Donations of food and supplies, and money, will be collected through Aug. 31.
2. Milford Selectmen will meet at 7 p.m. Monday, at Milford Town Hall. The agenda includes a signing ceremony for an agreement with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to participate in its IMAGE Program. The town will become the first in New England to do so, according to ICE officials. The program will require annual screenings for all town employees to make sure they are eligible for employment in the U.S.
3. Children Across America, a Milford-based non profit that includes education and anti-bullying programs for children and young adults, is seeking volunteers to help tutor students on weekends and evenings.
4. Dunkin Donuts is hiring for its Milford locations. If interested, please attend the job fair in Natick Aug. 28.
5. Team Micky Ward Charities will sponsor its 4th annual Bike Run and BBQ on Sept. 8. Biker registration is from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. and the BBQ will be served around 3 p.m. The cost is $20 for general admission including bikers and a $10 fee for passengers.
