A Mechanical Elephant, Musical Tales and a Peter Gammons Scholarship Winner

The Family Fest, Scott Kepnes' performance at the library, and many other happenings occurred this week in Milton.

Family Fest Fun

First Congregational Church held its second annual Family Fest and Yard Sale on June 25. With children’s entertainment, face-painting, food and yard sale bargains, the event was a success. Among the more unusual activities were rides on a mechanical elephant. “Tiny” was a hit with the younger set, as evidenced by the long line for a ride as well as the post-safari grinning. 

The Scott Heard Round the World

The Friends of the Milton Public Library presented musician Scott Kepnes on Monday afternoon in a children’s concert. Kepnes, whose presentation was entitled “Musical Tales from Around the World,” sang, played guitar, harmonica and bongos, and told stories from Costa Rica, Africa, Japan and the United States. About 20 children, preschoolers and older, enjoyed an hour of music in the Keys Community Room.
