  • Milford Sandy Ground 5K Fundraiser Planned

    MILFORD — The Sandy Ground Project was established by the New Jersey Fireman’s Benevolent Association last year. Its mission is to build 26 playgrounds along the coast of New Jersey, New York and Connecticut in towns hit by Hurricane Sandy. Each playground honors and provides a lasting memory of the 26 children and teachers who lost their lives on December 14, 2012.

    Milford will be the location of one of those playgrounds. It will be built in memory of James Mattioli, a 6-year old who was among the children killed on 12/14.
