After an effort that has spanned several years, New Milford now has spanking new welcome signs at the three primary entrances to the Borough and Township. The old wooden signs on Rt 11 were replaced at this time last year with new attractive red and gold signs made of laminate materials. Shown above is the newly installed ”show piece” of the sign project which was sponsored by the New Milford Community Men’s Club, with assistance from the Borough and Township. The sign is on Rte. 492 and it features an emblem stating “Gateway to the Endless Mountains”. In keeping with the importance of heritage, and the central role both New Milford and the stone industry represent to the region, the attractive sign is a 3000 pound piece of native Pennsylvania bluestone, shaped like the states keystone emblem, and engraved with the incorporation dates of the Borough and Township.
New Milford Borough Judge of Elections Fran Worden completed his final term of office, following many years of service on the election board.

Fran said, “I tried to close the poll booths early one time by mistake, and it created a lot of laughs. Anyhow, seeing the voters exercise the right to cast their ballot at election time is a rewarding experience. I am proud to be an American. I will miss the election board staff. The workers certainly are a spirited and dedicated group, serving their community!”

Fancy Feathers Poultry Club
The 4-H Showmanship contest was held during Harford Fair. There were seven members competing from ages 8 to 13 with Jessica Sartell judging. The contest was judged on how well the member follows judge’s directions, appearance and enjoying the experience. They are also judged on the appearance of the chicken. They are then asked questions on the breed, variety as well as explaining the basic care of the chicken.
Champion Showman was Jordan Ayers and Res. Champion was Makayla Kingston.
This year we had a real nice selection of poultry for the 4 H show. A large number of the birds were bantams.
Grand Champion of the Show was Belgian D'Uccle mille fluer pullet, Madison Stanford.
Res. Grand Champion of the Show was Silver-Laced Wyandotte pullet, Justin Stanford.
