Happy New Year
Dear Friends, Neighbors and Milton Citizens -
I hope you all have had a blessed holiday season and continue to enjoy important time with your families and friends. As we near the corner on a new year, I want to take the opportunity to thank you for your care for our collective community and for your involvement which comes in so many different forms. And as we approach 2009, if you have not had the opportunity to be as involved as you would like to be, please include it as one of your resolutions for the New Year. It does not have to take Herculean efforts, but instead can be as simple as attending a Council or committee meeting, sending in a suggestion or reaching out to a neighbor. After all, the greatest blessings of our Milton community are the people that make this place we call home so wonderful.
