“Hi Kids My Name is Officer Rico”  
Look for me at the Park

Yes, dogs can be police officers too!  I carry a
police badge and my job is to keep the park safe.

I am still a young pup and I love school!  School is
very important.  I study many subjects and take
many classes.  My job is to patrol the park and
make sure everyone is safe.  I have learned to use
my nose to smell things and my eyes to find things
when they are lost.  I am also very good at patrolling
and sniffing out bad things that we don’t allow at the
park.  Along with my fellow officers, your safety is
our top job

Lake Milton Memories
with "Little Joe" and Old Lake Pictures!
Sunday August 24, 7pm

He's a piano-playin-yankee-doodle-dandy he is!  Remember Sam's on Grandview
and the piano player that used to lead the sing-along on Sunday night?  (This is
going back maybe ask grandma or grandpa.)  We're bringing Little Joe
back to Lake Milton again for a Sunday evening sing-a-long.  He'll bring his piano
and his projector with the song words.  We invite you to join in singing.


The Nature & Arts volunteers have also contacted the Lake Milton Historical
Society and they will bring old pictures of the lake.  These will also be projected
on the screen and we look forward to stirring up some fond memories of our
beautiful lake and the generations of families who have had fun here over the
years.  The collaboration will make for a fun night!

For sure this is a family event.  So what are you waiting for?  Grandparents,
parents, kids, grandkids make up the generations of your family fun at
Lake Milton.  Bring a blanket and see how many generations of your family
can join in on the fun!
The volunteer team has received 2 grants and we now need to raise the matching funds locally
required by each grant.  To do this we are selling patio bricks --    and you can engrave a messages
like "we love lake Milton!" or "in memory of our Dad Jim Smith."  These pavers will make up the
walkway at the Amphitheater.  A new fence will be installed too.  Beautiful trees have already been

Patio stones start at $150 and larger ones are $300 each.  Other items are available at higher price
points (like a fence masonry pillar plaque or the fire pit).
