MILFORD - Two local teachers are alleviating some heat-induced stress for Milford residents this summer in the form of their latest business venture, an old-fashioned ice cream truck.

Milford Soft Serve was started last year by Stefanie Wise and Pat Cole, who teach at Fairfield Ludlowe High School. They say they wanted to bring the classic summertime tradition to their hometown.

The truck is often set up at the beach in Milford during the day, and then takes a route through the neighborhood at night. They also cater to parties and corporate events.

The duo also says that people wholly enjoy seeing an ice cream truck in the area again, and really get a kick out of the fact that they are both teachers.
