Fridays in PA--- Shade, Bison, Crafts, Pancakes, and Lions

OK, so my job is to get you out of the air conditioner and to the town of Neffs, PA.
Come early I say. My parents have been involved in the Lions Club for years and years and I can tell you that they make a good pancake breakfast those Lions. The pancake breakfast starts at 8am.
In fact it was my dad that got us the info about this show, and I have no problem with supporting the Lions. I fully respect their mission to help those with vision problems-- from collecting used glasses to training seeing eye dogs to starting vision clinics-- which originated when Helen Keller spoke at the Lions Club International Convention at Cedar Point, OH, in 1925. It ended with these words...

You have heard how I was taught—how a little word from the fingers of another, a ray of light from another soul touched the darkness of my mind, and I found myself, found the world, and found God! It is because my teacher cared about me and broke through the dark, silent imprisonment which held me that I am able to work for myself and for others. If you care, if we can make the people of this great country care, the blind will triumph over blindness.
This is the opportunity I offer you, Lions—to foster and sponsor the work of the American Foundation for the Blind. Will you not help me hasten the day when there shall be no preventable blindness, no little deaf blind child untaught, no blind man or woman unaided? I appeal to you, Lions—you who have your sight, your hearing, you who are strong and brave and kind—will you not constitute yourselves Knights of the Blind in my crusade against darkness?

Word on the street is that most booths are in the shade and with heat indexes to be closing in on 105-110 tomorrow, what more can you want when you cruise through the show after eating pancakes.
I am talking about the 15th annual Crafts in the Grove located at Union United Church 5500 Rt 873, Neffs, PA. Saturday July 24th. For those of you who are late risers and heat lovers the show goes till 3pm. Bring water, we just may give you a discount.
and what about bison. Well for that you need to go to the Trexler Nature Preserve, which happens to be close by to the show.
What will you see inside our booth.... check this out
