Millard Days is more than just a fun time for family and friends— the event also raises money to benefit the Millard community and its people. In the fall of 2005, the Millard Days committee began setting aside funds to create a scholarship opportunity for Millard area high school students. In addition, over $400,000 in grants to community programs have been made over the past five decades. Grants from Millard Days include Boys/Girls State, Millard High School after prom parties, Special Olympics, Special Friends Prom, Civil Air Patrol, and Millard High Schools Scholarships. Prior proceeds have gone to support emergency equipment for the fire department, Millard area parks, Millard Senior Center, Boys Scouts, Millard school and athletic field improvements, and hundreds of other worthy causes.
Millard Days began in 1964 when the Millard Jaycees hosted an afternoon barbecue in the park to celebrate a successful charter year. Now, over 50 years later, Millard Days is a full week of activities for families to enjoy. For more information and details about the upcoming festival, visit millarddays.com.
