Mask Up, New Hampshire comes to the Souhegan Valley; Milford Rotary to take part

The Milford Rotary Club is participating in a statewide effort to distribute free breathable, washable, and reusable cloth face masks to area residents.

Rotary Clubs throughout the Granite State have signed on to help the “Mask Up, New Hampshire!” program created by Alex Ray, owner of The Common Man Family of restaurants,and the Plymouth NH Rotary Club. The restaurant chain donated 67,000 cloth masks that are being distributed free of charge by local Rotary Clubs to community members.

Milford Rotarians will be passing out masks from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday August 7th and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday Aug. 8 at the Milford High School, 100 West Street. This will be a drive-through service to allow for social distancing.

All area residents are welcome to attend. Each person in a household can get two free masks. The idea being that one mask is wearable while the other mask is in the wash. Only one family member is needed to pick up the masks for a household. While the masks are free, donations will be accepted and go toward Milford Rotary Club’s community service and charitable programs.
