Milton’s Bicentennial Celebration
Feb 26 all-day

The Milton Historical Society announces plans to celebrate Milton’s 200th anniversary with special Bicentennial events planned for the weekend of February 25 and 26, 2017.  The Borough of Milton, which was incorporated by act of the state legislature on February 26, 1817, will celebrate its 200th anniversary on February 26, 2017.  In celebration of this milestone, the Milton Historical Society’s Bicentennial Committee has organized a multi-month celebration through June, including special events slated for February 25 and 26.

On Saturday, February 25, 2017, the Bicentennial Banquet, a unique evening of fine food, live entertainment and some special presentations, will take place beginning at 6:00 p.m. at St. Joseph Parish Center, Cemetery Road, Milton.  The Bicentennial Banquet is open to the public, but there are only a limited number of tickets available.  To access the registration form for the banquet, please visit milton2017.  All proceeds from the event will support the Bicentennial Parade to be held on June 17 during Milton’s Bicentennial Celebration Week. The registration deadline is Friday, February 17, 2017

On Sunday, February 26, 2017, the Borough of Milton will mark its 200th anniversary with a special proclamation, pealing of bells and a vesper service.  The public is invited to gather at 2:00 p.m., at Dorothy Hermani Park, located on the corner of South Front and Center Streets, for a Bicentennial Day proclamation to be read by Milton’s Mayor, the Hon. Ed Nelson.  At the conclusion of Mayor Nelson’s proclamation, all the churches located in downtown Milton will ring-in the Borough’s next century by simultaneously pealing the bells in their towers in celebration.  The public will then be invited to walk across the street from the park for a vesper service to be held at Bethany United Methodist Church, 107 South Front Street, Milton.  The non-denominational vesper service will be one of thanksgiving for the Borough’s proud past and promising future. The days events are free and open to the public.

According to Bicentennial Chair, John Meckley, “this will be a special weekend for Milton—an opportunity to mark our 200th anniversary by gathering together in fellowship to not only celebrate this important milestone but also give thanks for our many blessings.  When Milton’s many churches ring their bells together on Sunday, February 26—something that hasn’t happened in recent memory—everyone will know that our Bicentennial is here and that we have much to anticipate in the next century ahead.  We are grateful for all of our volunteers and celebration partners who have helped to make this important weekend possible.”
