    Milton firemen and Emergency Medical people had a pitch-in Halloween supper and party Saturday night.  They played a game called “bag-it” where three bags with wearing apparel were passed around to the players. When the music stopped, the person with the bag had to take out an article of clothing and put it on. Without a doubt, it was a festive occasion, one jolly well worth a niche in memory.

  • As holidays go, Halloween ranks as one of the big events of the year. Over time, Halloween celebrations have changed, with a definite shift away from costumed kids walking through neighbors after dark with little to no supervision to the current emphasis on organized fall festivals and trick-or-treating during designated hours in business, community or downtown centers. This change also lessens the emphasis on overeating, since organized activities and sports, such as archery, are now part of some community festivities.
