Milford Rotary Foundation
Welcome to Milford Memories and to Milford, Michigan! We are very proud of our town and love to show it off. As members of the Milford Rotary Club, we are a part of an international network of like-minded community leaders and "people of action" that focus on making our world/country/community a better place. We would love to tell you more about that at our table…. But more importantly, we want to help YOU protect your little ones while you are here at our amazing festival. Stop by our table and we will give you a wristband for your child that you can write your cell number on. If they do get lost, anyone with a phone can call you and help you reunite. This is our service to you and again Welcome to Milford!
Stronger Warrior Foundation
The Stronger Warrior Foundation's mission is to keep active, retired, and the families of United States service members strong financially, mentally, and physically.We will honor this through our three distinct programs; the Hardship Program, Scholarship Fund, and Sponsor a Warrior. The Hardship Program's main purpose is to help those service members that have been wounded or have suffered disabilities from combat related services. The Stronger Warrior Scholarship Fund is dedicated to helping active and retired service members, and spouses or children of deceased service members obtain an education through college or a trade school. The Sponsor a Warrior Program is built around the premise of sending care packages to active duty or reserve service members who are deployed.
United Veterans of Michigan
United Veterans of Michigan if a non-profit organization that caters to our veterans, active duty servicemen and women, and our Gold Star Families. Our mission is to honor, pay respect, and to thank those who serve and sacrifice themselves for our freedom. The organization allows our veterans to go fishing, hunting, hiking, or anything they would like to do outdoors. We do this to give out veterans a relief from everyday stress and give them an ear to listen to them and also to be able to relax and enjoy things they love to do.
