You can find plenty of stories about activist judges, balancing lawsuit reform with risk management or the latest crime story elsewhere.
The subject of judging loosely tie together 2 widely different events this coming week by The Milford Historical Society. One is of courageous men and later in the week we’ll appreciate the beauty of simpler things. This coming week, The Milford Historical Society has Judges with robes and then lightens up with a judged flower show.
The Milford Historical Society will host a multimedia lecture, on Monday, September 17, at 7:00 p.m. at Mary Taylor Methodist Church, located on Milford’s upper Green at 168 Broad Street, Milford, Connecticut after a brief meeting and refreshments. This lecture on little known stories is free but you copies of the new book “The Great Escape of Edward Whalley and William Goffe: Smuggled Through Connecticut” will be available for purchase. Bring a friend or two for this highly anticipated talk.
Essex’s town historian and author Christopher Pagliuco will explore an interesting chapter in Milford’s early history, the hiding of the Regicides, Edward Whalley and William Goffe, who during the 1630s and 40s helped topple and execute King Charles I during the English Civil War. Whalley and Goffe went from being two of England’s most powerful men to being England’s most wanted. Whalley and Goffe fled England and spent time in Milford for a few years.
We change the tone and move to The Milford Historical Society’s museum complex at 34 High Street, Milford, Connecticut for a pleasure to the eyes and nose. The Milford Garden Club will be having its fall Flower event "Historic Milford in bloom 1639 - 2012" on September 22 from 1 to 5 featuring over 16 floral designs throughout The Milford Historical Society’s 3 historic buildings in celebration of the Garden Club’s 85th year of service to Milford. You can see locally grown flowers, vegetables and more surprises. Admission is a $5.00 donation for this event.
