Milford Merchants Association offers alternative Earth Day celebration – online

This weekend the Milford Merchants Association was planning to celebrate Earth Day in Milford, N.J., with a river clean up, family activities, presentations, live music and eco vendor stalls to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the holiday. Since the event was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, the MMA created an alternative way to continue the conversation on Earth Day Eve.
