The 39th Annual Strawberry Fair took place on Saturday, June 22 – a day which just might have been the most beautiful in the summer of 2019 thus far. Presented as always by the Milton District Hospital Auxiliary, the event drew crowds from all over the city.
On a breezy summer evening, participants of Arts Milton’s Friendship Project gathered at the Milton Sports Centre park for a picnic celebrating the completion of this year’s program. The Friendship Project, now in its second year, connects newcomers to Canada with community host families. Together the partnered families attend arts and culture activities together from winter to spring each year.
July 13 was a sunny warm day, with a light breeze. It was the perfect summer day for the annual picnic Milton (MAM) at the Croatian Club Soccer Park.
The event included food, and, family activities as well as shows for the kids.

Warsi, and Mehmood Khan are part of the team of organizers. MAM presents an annual cheque for $5,000 to MDHF, “That makes it a very unique event,” Warsi
