I was cleaning out a cache of brochures that have accumulated at my desk and found a very interesting one about our River Towns. This one is called Susquehanna River Road Excursion put out by rivertownes.org. I’m familiar with the group but have never looked at their website. With this being the anniversary year of the Gettysburg Battle and knowing how Columbia played into the history I thought you all might like to take a look. In the event you do not know our small river town of Columbia played a HUGE part in how the war turned out. So if you are going to Gettysburg for the celebration (or even if you are not) you might want to take a day or two to look around here and learn that part of the story.
I’m sure someone out there enjoys brutalizing their body like some of my children(really adults) do. So step right up and register for this 5K run. May 26, SVCC will host the 12th annual River Run. Pre-registration is underway for this 5k run which begins at 8:30 AM. Cheer on the participants as they cross the Veterans Memorial Bridge.
Last weekend my daughter did a 1/2 IronMan in Virginia. When she showed up here several hours later she looked none the worse for the wear. Since this mom is not so physically fit I find it mind boggling what you do in the name of fun. You see I must always taste the food that is served for quality control and besides that who ever heard of a skinny cook you could trust???
Small town America is a wonderful way to live. To showcase this what they offer two very local towns have 4th Friday events. Mount Joy (just 3 miles) has little shops open till 8 and food in abundance at the cafes and restaurants. Usually there is street music and town is bustling with people walking the streets and enjoying the locals. Columbia (6 miles) offer food, art and other goings on. It gives a different prospective on how people really live.
Did you ever what to bake bread from scratch? If so, The Good Cooking Store is offering a class on Saturday the 23th.
Murder at Mount Hope is this Friday night. Dinner and fun, how can you beat that.
