Community Center Upgrade

People behind construction of a handicapped ramp alongside the new Milford Community Center on West Main Street gathered at the site this evening to celebrate the progress. The Milford Rotary Club donated $2,300 toward the ramp, and Habitat for Humanity’s HASP (Home Accessibility & Safety Program) donated another $1,000. Along with tentative plans for a new set of Automatic Sliding Doors, the installation of a ramp will ensure that people with disabilities can access the community center with ease. Seward Gravel provided the required gravel, the village crew dug post holes, and David Singh drove his tractor over to help with construction. On site this evening were, from left, Rotarian-in-training E-V Sosnowski, Milford Rotary President Lola Rathbone, Rotarians Pat Winsor, Jim Yourno and Tom Rathbone, Milford United Methodist Pastor Sylvia Barrett, Rotarians Alicin and Vera Sosnowski, Habitat’s Duncan Smith, Rotarian Ken Sosnowski, Habitat’s Steve Londner, who is supervising the construction, and Rotarian Ken Stone. After the Milford United Methodist Church burned March 12, 2017, the Legion made the building available for the food pantry that had been at the church. That began the process that led to the Community Center’s creation as a non-profit entity. Village Mayor Brian Pokorny is the center’s president. Londner said Habitat is always looking for volunteers; check out Habitat of Otsego County’s home page. (Jim Kevlin/
