Mike Petrucelli is “Man of the Year”

Mike Petrucelli, who received the Living Treasure Award in 2003, has been named the Italian-American Man of the year for 2013 by the Milford Columbus Committee.

Mike, who turns 89 this year, was the owner of the Town Squire Men’s shop in the old Milford Trust building downtown that now houses Milford Photo.  He was a founder of the Community Chest in Milford that later became The United Way of Milford.

He has been an active volunteer at St. Mary’s Church and Milford Hospital and has been a member of city boards and commissions, including the Commission on Aging.

The Milford Columbus Committee presents scholarships to local high school seniors and holds an annual awards dinner. Details on this year’s dinner will be available soon.Mike Petrucelli pic
