This is such a fun event, people come from all over Southern CT to participate. It's something we can all be proud of. Many thanks to the Milford Fine Arts Council and the Milford Bank for their planning and sponsorship.

"MFAC Business & Communications Director Kristine Kinsella" - is this Bill Meddick's replacement?

Hi JE: No, Kristine Kinsella has been with the MFAC for a number of years. The MFAC is still looking for a new Executive Director and, as I understand it, taking the time to make sure they find the right person.
