Celebrating 200 Years

This past weekend the town of Milton celebrated its 200th anniversary. We participated in some of the many activities making up the celebration. It is not an understatement to say that there was a whole lot going on in the little town last weekend.

Thursday evening Bill and I assisted in the construction of the Milton Historical Society's float for Saturday's parade. Although the evening was very warm it was fun to engage in an activity I remember well from high school, college and then other similar community events. Here are a few pictures to mark the activity.

This photo is of the tall, marshy grass used as a backdrop on the float. This grass abounds around here.

Here is the banner and name of the float -- S.S. Lydia B. Cannon. The Historical Society is housed at the Lydia B. Cannon Museum. Here are some of us hard at work and putting the float together.

After leaving the float detail we enjoyed dinner at the "just opened" Iguana Grill. It was a very fun evening experiencing more of the area.
