The unseasonably warm Milton air was filled with music, singing and fun for all as the first annual Caroling in Milton Memorial Park delighted young and old alike Friday, Dec. 20.

Hoping it will become an annual Christmas event, the mayor and council welcomed all to celebrate in fellowship, fun, laughter and singing.
