Downtown Milford Inc. votes in new officers

MILFORD – Peg Reilly is taking over as president of Downtown Milford Inc. (DMI) in one of several leadership changes announced by the organization.

Ms. Reilly, who was formerly the vice president, will be serving a one-year term and will replace former president Sara Pletcher, who has been involved with DMI in different capacities for nine years. The change will be effective on Monday.

The existing board voted in the new officers at a special meeting on June 17. 

Don Vaughan will serve a two-year term as vice president of DMI while Shelley Moore will serve a two-year term as secretary, taking over the position previously held by Pat Sparks, who has been involved with the organization for eight years.

Sandra Gulledge will serve a two-year term as treasurer, taking over a position that has been held by Bob Starkey for the past eight years.

These officer positions at DMI, along with the many non-officer board positions, are all volunteer.

Board members will be Matt Babbitt, Jason Peel, Cat Perfetti, Lang Redden, Denise Rivera, Kelly Turner and Sher Valenzuela.

DMI volunteers are responsible for events like the Riverfront Farmer’s Market, the Pub Crawl, the Irish Music and Dance Concert, the Easter Plant Sale, the Bug & Bud Festival with the Parks & Recreation Team, Third Thursday Block Parties, the LadyBug Music Festival with Gable Music Ventures, the Holiday Stroll and the Santa House.

DMI is also involved in beautifying and organizing the downtown area with flowers, trees, art projects and signage. Yet another highly experienced group of volunteers work to recruit business and fill vacant storefronts. DMI strives to make historic downtown Milford a place people want to shop, eat, relax and have fun.
