John Huntzinger and John Mitchell “rose to the occasion” by allowing themselves to be lifted high in the sky to repair and repaint the finial of the church steeple, which holds the sailing ship weather vane (an homage to Milford’s shipbuilding past). The project was long overdue and was postponed last fall due to wind and falling temperatures. Finally, on June 5, 2021, the perfect day presented the opportunity for the much-anticipated event. First State Crane Company provided the height required, and the Huntzinger/Mitchell team provided the skill, courage and faith needed for the job. Below is a glimpse of the challenge presented them.
