Article from The Eastern Gazette, Vol. 151, No. 23, June 17, 2003
MILO – On Saturday, May 31,2003, the air was full of excitement and anticipation as the Milo Historical Society hosted their Spring Antique Appraisal Fair. The fair, held at the Milo Town Hall Auditorium, was a first of its kind fund-raising event for the historical society and hopes were high that it would be a success. The results were not disappointing for all involved; from the society members to the volunteer appraisers to the public who attended, it was a day of enthusiasm and discovery. The Antique Appraisal Fair was held in collaboration with the Three Rivers Kiwanis, who hosted a light lunch available for sale to those attending. At 10 AM, with soft music playing in the background and a kaleidoscope of balloons decorating the hall, the doors opened to those waiting to find out not only the monetary value of their china, jewelry, and other family heirlooms; but also to possibly gain some further knowledge about the history their treasures. It is hoped and believed that few came away disappointed.
