A Busy Milton Weekend - Rummage Sales, Walking Tour, Dedication Ceremony, and a Performance

This Saturday, June 1st, will be a busy day in the City of Milton.  The City-Wide Rummage Sales will be taking place all day.  A list of rummage sales is available in this week's Milton Courier.  The Milton Area Chamber of Commerce (MACC) and the Milton College Preservation Society will be holding a rummage sale fundraiser from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Main Hall, 513 College Street.

At 9 a.m. on Saturday, a Historic Walking Tour of the Milton College District will be leaving from Main Hall, 513 College Street.  The tour guide will walk you through the history of the college and highlight the college buildings and homes of professors.  The Historic Preservation Commission has a full schedule of Historic Walking Tours for the rest of the summer and into the fall.  The schedule is available in this Milton Matters blog post: Historic Preservation Commission Hosts Historic Walking Tours.  

A dedication ceremony to recognize all of the improvements that have been completed at the baseball diamonds at Lamar Park, including new dugouts in honor of Jack Gallun, will be held at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday at Lamar Park.

On Sunday, June 2nd, consider attending the one-woman performance of "Truth: The Testimonial of Sojourner Truth" at 2 p.m. at the Milton House.  Tickets are $10 each and are on sale at the Milton House.  Here is a link to more information: Sojourner Truth Story Coming to Milton.  Interesting Fact: Sojourner Truth had ties to Milton as a friend of the Goodrich Family and guest at the Milton House Inn.
