MILTON - A Milton man with a history of serving the community has been selected as grand marshal for this year's Milton Harvest Festival parade, slated for 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, along Front Street in Milton.

Sue Rearick, Harvest Festival chair, said Mike Longenberger was selected for his dedication to the community.

He has been involved in a number of initiatives in town, including with the Milton Community Pool Association, which helped to save the pool from being shut down.

Longenberger was also instrumental in creating Milton's Veteran's Memorial Park, which is located next to the Milton Moose Family Center.

"He's honored. He was grateful we chose him to be grand marshal," Rearick said of Longenberger.

MILTON - "It brings the community together with a lot of different activities." Those are the words of Nancy Slease, a member of the Milton Harvest Festival princess pageant committee, as she describes why it's important for the annual festival to continue.

Festival committee members gathered on Monday at Pardoes Perky Peanuts, in Montandon, to pick up 3,000 packs of peanuts. The business has donated the peanuts, valued at $3,000, to the organization as part of a fundraiser aimed at replenishing the festival's depleted funds.
