Middleton residents will soon be recognized for their good deeds at the 48th annual Middleton Good Neighbor Festival.
The festival, from August 24 to 26, features free music, food, games and prizes. A 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, August 25 winds through Middleton as hundreds or walkers and runners raise money for the town. A parade on Sunday, August 26 at noon will feature floats, bands, fire engines, and more.
But the Good Neighbor Festival also features just that – good neighbors. Four residents are honored this year for their commitment to service and for their volunteer efforts in the Middleton community.
Mike Hinz, President of the Middleton Baseball & Softball Commission (MBSC), is recognized for his positive impact on Middleton youth. His leadership with MBSC has led to a first-class baseball/softball facility at Fire Fighters Memorial Park, the festival organizers said.
