The New Milford Historical Society Museum will play host to a performance of "Voices from the Past" Oct. 21 at 7 p.m.

The performance will be based on the museum's collection of more than 50 portraits of some of the early residents of New Milford and many of the artifacts they left behind.

In addition to the performance, a pumpkin carving contest for children will be offered.

Carved pumpkins can be dropped off at the Aspetuck Avenue museum Oct. 21. The child's phone number should accompany the pumpkin.

Judging will take place after the performance, with prizes to be awarded for the scariest and funniest pumpkins.

Admission is $10 for non-member families and $8 for members.
