Bonus Photos: Milton wrestlers

Sunday, Milton High School honored its two wrestlers who competed at Hershey in the state tournament.

Ryan Solomon placed first and Ryan Preisch placed third.

The pair rode into the high school on a fire truck, then a small ceremony was held in the school’s auditorium to honor their accomplishment.

Know someone who deserves a shout-out in the Valley? Let me know!

It’s Farm Show time!

I went to the Pennsylvania Farm Show for the first time last year. Twitter immortalized that experience for me:

And it was quite an experience.

I tried to hit everything I could and take in as much as possible, but it was hard to know what to do and see! Luckily, in case I go this year, Valley-ers have my back.
