MANY MISSES - From left, sitting, are Junior Miss winner Emily Mollica, Little Miss winner Jessica Franquet, Dainty Miss winner Mackenzie Derr and Mini Miss winner Leah Davis. Standing are Junior Miss runner-up Kelsey Schreck, Little Miss runner-up Alyssa Ellis, Dainty Miss runner-up Jacqueline Stokes and Mini Miss runner-up Lillian Mapes. These girls were selected among the 42 candidates at the Mini, Dainty, Little and Junior Miss Pageant Monday night in the Milton Area High School auditorium.

MILTON - One by one, 42 of the Milton area's sweetest, most talented young ladies took the stage to show why they are worthy of princess stature.

It didn't take much convincing.

Yes, as pageants go, some girls received higher scores and earned titles of Mini, Dainty, Little and Junior Miss, but each should have left with a sense of accomplishment.

How they felt was evident by their smiling faces, looking out toward the crowd for their loved ones who gathered for a night full of enjoyment in the Milton Area High School auditorium.

MILTON - The Milton Harvest Festival is one of the community's finest examples when it comes to "Harvesting Our Traditions," the theme of this year's event.

The 32nd year kicked off over the weekend, bringing hundreds to downtown Milton. People started showing up Saturday morning for the festival's larger attractions, including the 28-mile bike race and the pet parade.


Event Puts River To Good Use

BACK TO SHORE - Kayakers from Sunday's river trip, a newer Milton Harvest Festival event, return to land at the Milton State Park. TIME, which organizes the event along with Canoe Susquehanna, hopes the river can be better utilized and has planned a special meeting on the topic for Sept. 25 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at the Milton Moose Family Center. Anyone interested in attending should register by Sept. 23 by calling 742-7000. George Venios, president of TIME, said he'd like to see this river trip added to the slate of events during the Moose fishing derby in the spring.
