The literal definition of Milestone refers to a roadside marker in the past that listed the distance to a particular location. These days, the word is more often used figuratively to refer to significant events in life, like graduating from college or getting married. It acts sort of like a personal road sign: it’s a moment when you reflect on where you stand in life.

Milestone moments differ for everyone but there are some that are commonly recognized as a great time for a celebration. The Event Center at Extraordinary Ventures is often the site for these special Milestone Parties, and while you don’t need a reason to have a great party, there are many great reasons to celebrate the years and achievements of our loved ones.
