Starbucks, Transgender Expo, turtle mamas, and fast sandwiches – Top Milton Neighbors posts, May ’24

Wondering what the top Milton Neighbors posts were last month?

We’ve summarized the top posts for you from the past month.

1. Starbucks for West Milton

“Look what’s OPEN, West Milton
[edited to add: as Jamey Reid Reddicks accurately commented below, “he didn’t say it was IN West Milton. I think he is speaking TO the good people of West Milton. That IS the Star Market on River St.” It is close enough to hit with a thrown baseball from West Milton . . .]”

A Starbucks counter located within a grocery store, where several customers are being served by baristas. Shelves with various products surround the area, creating a busy but inviting atmosphere. Nearby, a sign reminds everyone of Cunningham Woods dog rules to ensure a pleasant experience for all.

Yes. West Milton. I said what I said.

2. Milton teen puts together Transgender Excellence Expo

Although the expo has passed, Rio Pearlstein’s event garnered a lot of support and interest.

Flyer for the "Transgender* Excellence Expo" on May 18, 2024, 5-8 PM. Features keynote speaker, workshops, panel discussions, exhibits, and more. Hosted at Milton Academy and supported by Milton Neighbors. Open to everyone. Parking available.

3. Milton community supports Popcorn the Bishon’s family

“Our 15 year old Bishon just got back from a trip and was on a flight. He was doing fine, came home and while eating, had a seizure and passed away. We tried CPR to no avail. We have a call out to his veterinarian but we have never had dogs before so we are at a loss what to do next.
We have the option of cremation with Angell however we want to bury him.
Can anyone help us with what to do next?…”

4. Turtle laying eggs near fire hydrant (click to see photo)

“Massive turtle digging a hole next to our mailbox. Thoughts on if we should do anything or notify someone? I can’t imagine it’s a good spot to lay eggs…”

Live video feed anyone?

5. Milton delivers stuffed animals

Milton Neighbors came through for us big time! I have enough donated stuffed animals for this year.
I hope to see many of you at the FCC Strawberry festival on June 15th!!! We will have the teddy bear zipline, enchanted forest, rock climbing wall, and (of course) lots of strawberry shortcake.”
