Some may view this weekend’s Milton Elementary School fish fry as the end of a legacy, but perhaps it is simply evolving, as it has over the past 50 years.
Saturday, Oct. 18, will be the last fish fry event held at the old Milton Elementary School, which will be replaced later this year with a brand-new school building in January.
“No one really knows how [the fish fry] started,” said J.W. Sachleben,who served as MES principal from 1971-83. “I think it might have evolved out of a fall festival. However it started, it has been wonderful.”
