Making a Difference is a program designed for individuals who deal daily with people with a diagnosis of dementia. Sponsored by Visiting Angels and Good News Consulting, this comprehensive program will feature guest speaker Kenneth Brubaker, former Medical Director for the PA Dept. of Aging. If you are a family member, friend, caregiver or friendly visitor of someone who suffers from dementia, plan to attend this seminar to learn how you can make a difference in their life and in yours. This is a free event but reservation is required. Light refreshments will be provided. Registration starts at 8:00 a.m.
They might look like cars, submarines or riverboats, but they’re all made of cardboard, duct tape and paint, and they all float (at least in theory). Boats are made by teams of villagers, volunteers and team members – some large and buoyant enough to carry several sailors – and multiple races are run on a course marked out on the pond. Some crews dress in theme garb to complement their boats. It’s all free and open to the public.
Manor Winds is a talented new chamber ensemble comprised of five musicians who rehearse in a loft space of their horn player’s historic manor in downtown Lancaster. While they love playing many works from the standard repertoire, the quintet is equally passionate about new music. With many recently written pieces in their repertoire, they look to program new works and help to represent local composers in the southeastern region of Pennsylvania. This free event is open to all.
Plan on being at Cross Keys Village for a great time at the 57th annual Chicken BBQ, Car Show & Auction. The food will be a treat, there will be opportunities to shop in any price range, live music will be available most of the day, and the classic car buffs can check out those Chevys, T-Birds and DeSotos in all their shining glory. This is the greatest family event of the season.
The sights, smells and tastes of the season will mix with fun family activities at the 2017 Apple Butter Festival. Members of the Replogle family still make apple butter the old fashioned way – boiled in a copper pot over an open fire – and you can buy some, along with baked goods and more. An indoor yard sale and a vast selection of previously-read books will also be part of this fun-for-the-whole-family event. Admission and parking are free.
