Childhood Development

The month of May always takes me back to childhood when life felt carefree. The promise of April showers always comes through with the blossoming return of May flowers. I remember the excitement of picking dandelions for my mom on Mother's Day, thinking that I had just delivered her a gift of sunshine and happy dreams. I am confident that there is some kind of magic embedded in our DNA that inspires joy at this time of year. The sunshine and warmer weather beckon people out of their homes and offices to walk, run, and ride in the glorious outdoors to enjoy the gift of nature and the wonder it inspires within us.

Bridgeport Hospital Gala

MILFORD, CT (March, 2022) Just over a century ago Milford was small, but growing, community of about 10,000 residents.

Alarmed by the lack of local access to medical facilities, in 1920, a small group of citizens formed the Milford Hospital Society to lead the way in ensuring Milford had its own hospital. [ more ]
