The Friends of Milton Crew manage the Milton High School rowing program, which recently achieved varsity status. The program is enjoying its 4th season on the Neponset River. The Friends are now raising funds to grow and offer a community program. They are planning a junior club program for all area students in the spring to be followed by a masters program for adults.
