Family Fun Fair was Fun!

Almost everything that a Milford family could ask for was available at the March 5 Family Fun Fair held at the Milford High School. This annual event, sponsored by the Milford Family and Community Network as well as the Kennedy-Donovan Center and the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services, brought together preschools, daycares, community businesses, and local organizations, making information and programming available to hundreds of Milford families.

Families were able to participate in the CHIP program sponsored by the Montgomery Lodge, the Free Masons of Milford. The program which is a child identification program which provides parents with a video tape, a cheek swab, a dental imprint, and fingerprints had more than 70 children go through the kit process during the fair.

Milford Town Library Children's Librarian Sue Ellen Szymanski hosted a story time, Mike Catalano of Little Feats Movement Education and Fitness led kids in games, and Insides Karate Academy offered a demonstration that impressed the audience.

Tim Snow was available to do caricatures of children as parents and friends laughed and made comment of the resemblances. The Milford High School National Honors Society had a table set up, as did the Pediatric Dental Group, the Girl Scouts, and the Boy Scouts. Parents could speak to daycare providers and preschools or they could focus on health and nutrition.

"I love the dancing and the jumping and the dancing more," said five year old Kimberly McClough. With music provide by DJ Ron Auger in the background, she happily went right back to dancing with her friend as her parents snapped a few photos.

Mom, Jillian Rossen, commented that her sons all enjoyed the day. "Being new to town I think this is great. I didn't even know that so much was available in the way of preschools," she said. "We are going to have to do some more exploring, all these places sound great and I have no idea which one would be the best fit for our family, but at least got a head start today."

The laughter and smiles of parents and children alike were only some of the signs of the success of the 17th annual Family Fun Fair.
