MILTON - Following 35 years of dedication to the Milton Harvest Festival, the final founder of the popular event to be involved with the festival has retired from the event committee.

John Yingling said the idea for the Milton Harvest Festival was first discussed after the borough was devastated by floods in 1972 and 1975.

"Milton was kind of depressed after those floods," he said.

Yingling, who was known throughout the area as a local radio personality, said he began discussing potential ways to help revitalize Milton with another local businessman, John Everitt.

"We started talking and thought we had to do something," Yingling recalled, while sitting recently at the dining room table of his Lewisburg home.  "At that time, there were very few festivals in the area.  We thought we should do something to give the town something bright and exciting."
