AFSP is dedicated to saving lives and bringing hope to those affected by suicide, including those who have experienced a loss. AFSP creates a culture that’s smart about mental health by engaging in the following core strategies:
- Funding scientific research
- Educating the public about mental health and suicide prevention

Serenity Canine Advocacy Rescue & Rehab
We are a non-profit located out of Grand Blanc, serving all areas including Oakland County. Our mission is to provide care and to help future pups.
International Cultural Exchange Services
International Cultural Exchange Services will be at Milford Memories all weekend seeking welcome families for our exchange students from all over the world. Hosting is fun and easy, and all types of families qualify - single parents, same sex couples, families with or without children, empty nesters, animal lovers, etc. We have male and female students from all different countries that have the same interests and hobbies as you and are waiting to share their culture with you! Your commitment can be as little as 6-8 weeks as a welcome family (which can convert to a full year if you wish), a semester (Aug to Dec), or a school year (Aug to June). Our students have their own money and health insurance, so you only need to provide them a place to stay and study and meals at home. You can learn all about another culture without even leaving home, or you can travel to your student's home country in the future and continue building on the relationship you build here!!
United Veterans of Michigan
UVM was founded in 2019 to help our national heroes enjoy the great outdoors. Since forming we have taken over 100 Veterans, Active Duty, Gold and Blue Star family members on fishing and hunting excursions at no expense to them. We are a local 501 (c)(3) Non-Profit where 100% of your donation goes to benefit our Veterans suffering from emotional, financial or physical difficulties. With your help we can reach more service men and women, stop by to say HI.

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!
