Milford Alive Recognitions - "Still Kicking" Awards

Milford Alive Recognitions - "Still Kicking" Awards
 

Milford Alive! was formed to celebrate, educate, and support local business.

It’s our belief that small local businesses don’t get enough recognition, and in many cases get no recognition. We aim to change that!

For February we present the “Still Kicking” Awards. The premise is this: Just because a business is past the  “Over the Hump” stage, it doesn’t mean that they are out of the woods!  Companies still need every advantage they can get! What better way to get the word out than to celebrate the hardworking, successful business owners who are “Still Kicking!” Congratulations are in order!

The award criteria are as follows:

1. Business should should be at least fifteen but not more than twenty-five years old.

2. Be a Milford-based business. Having locations outside Milford is okay but the business’ primary operating location should be Milford.  Its also acceptable if your business is located in a neighboring town, but you do the bulk of your business in Milford.

This recognition is provided through a partnership with Milford Alive! and Milford Economic & Community Development. Honorable Mayor Benjamin G Blake will be handing out the awards.

Awardees are encouraged to bring a guest. Guests could be a mentor, supporter, or the owner of a business inspired or helped out in some significant way.  These events are open to the public and any lover and supporter of local business may attend and celebrate with us!

Food is provided for the awardees and their guests by Joey and Ania Catalano, owners of Joey C’s Restaurants. Joey C’s Roadhouse and Joey C’s Boathouse
