Milano High School One- Act Play production class will present its fall show “10 Ways to Avoid the Zombie Apocalypse” by Don Zolidis for a one time only performance.

There will be a silent auction on display before the show and a few minutes after. The proceeds of the auction go to support the group’s OAP competition shown in the spring and awards for the group’s graduating seniors.

“Team Tammy,” a Relay For Life team from Milano, will host a costume party and dance Thursday, Oct. 31 at the Milano Civic Center, 400 W. Avenue E in downtown Milano.

Costume contest at 8 p.m. Age divisions: 5 and under, 6-12, 13 and up (including adults). Prizes for top male and female in each division. A silent auction will also be held.

Our sympathy goes out to the Valerie Herod family on her passing last week. Her husband Mike is the lead guitar player for the Milano Opry house band. Saturday’s Opry was cancelled due to Valerie’s death.
