Milton concert series was blessed

October 3, 2017

The summer of 2016 has come and gone. Milton's summer concerts are sadly complete, but everyone who attended seemed to enjoy the 14 concerts we had. Music that ranged from country, to classic rock, to classical brought out friends old and new; families with children came to hear their favorite bands while the kids gave the playground equipment a workout.

Mother Nature was kindest in providing great sunshine, but lots of humidity, and only one show that the weather caused to be moved into Milton Fire Department, Thanks to the fire department for coming to the rescue again. It never rained that night, but it sure looked like it would.
Many thanks to sponsors who make the concerts possible by their generous donations; they are: The Mercantile at Milton, Milton Lions Club, I.G. Burton of Milford & Seaford, Irish Eyes, Comcast, Wyoming Millwork, The Ice Cream Man, Short Funeral Services, Milton Community Foundation, Delaware Division of the Arts, M&T Bank, Reed Trucking, Milton Women's Club, Milton Chamber of Commerce, Sposato Irrigation, Gordy Insurance, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, Jeanine O'Donnell State Farm Insurance, County Bank, Pediatric & Adolescent Center, Gone to the Dogs, Milton Liquors, Erin Martin-Re/Max Realty, King's Homemade Ice Cream, state Sen. Ernie Lopez, and state Rep. Steve Smyk. When you visit these fine folks, tell them thanks.

Also thanks to Emory West, couldn't do it without him, Ches Warrener, for the grant writing, Krystle Vogel, for press releases, Quillen Signs for the jazzy new flyer, the Milton Lions for the train rides, Milton Garden Club for the wonderful flower beds, Milton maintenance staff for keeping the park looking great, and the town office staff for all the calls they answer, and for putting up with me.

Most of all, a big thanks to all folks who came out to hear the bands play, enjoy chatting with their neighbors, giving all a taste of small town America life, and giving me a reason to say, See you next year.
