Milford Farmer's Market Set for Saturday, Slots Parlor Rejected in Tewksbury
The Farmers Market has a final go-ahead for Saturday's opening. And in Tewksbury, a full house turned out and rejected a slots-only casino. Resort casinos, such as the one proposed for Milford, are more intensive developments.
1. The Milford Farmers Market on Tuesday received approval from the Planning Board to use the lot next to Town Hall as its location this year. The market will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays, beginning Aug. 24. Farmers featured include Torosian Valley Farm on Howard Street in Milford, and Julie's Z Breads, of Medway, which makes a variety of zucchini breads.
4. Milford Police now through the end of Labor Day weekend will take part in the national "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign. According to the release: "Milford Police officers will be aggressively looking for allimpaired drivers during the crackdown with plans to arrest anyone found operating a vehicle while impaired — regardless of age, vehicle type, or time of day."
5. A cheer clinic will be held Saturday at Express Dance & Acrobatics on South Main Street. The clinic is available to athletes aged 6 (as of Aug. 31) through 18. It will be instructed by Coach Lindsey Larsen-Kelsey. See the announcement for more details.
