Have you helped out in a town garden? I have (and my dad). It was a lot of fun! I was partnered with a woman named Camille. Camille and I got a lot done. We completed an entire row of vegetables before anyone else!!!! After that if someone was working on a row we would go to the other end and help them plant stuff. They had extra potatoes so my dad and I took some home. 🙂 We were mind-blown about how much we got done! Camille and I are going to come back a lot and check on the plants. You should help out next year. I know I will! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 !!!!!!!!!
Have you ever been to a Memorial Day celebration? I have. Before I went I didn’t think that any veterans lived in Tatamy. But it turns out there are sooooooooo many!!! I never knew what the statue in front of the post office was, but it is a man in World War I with a gun in his left hand and a grenade in his right. There are only a little more than one hundred original statues and the one in Tatamy is one of them. Some were destroyed. The statue was originally in front of what is Tony’s Pizza (you can learn about that in one of my previous stories) and then it was moved. Beneath the statue is the honor roll with the names of veterans from Tatamy. They said that the people that have stars by their names didn’t make it and sadly there were some people who didn’t make it. 😦 They sang many songs, some I didn’t know and some I knew very well. I hope next year you can join us.
Did you ever have a lemonade stand? I am going to. Please come to Winter & Abby’s lemonade stand we are doing it at 1 p.m. on April 8th. We are donating the money to the Center For Animal Health And Welfare which is where animals go when they don’t have homes, so they can buy food and water for the animals. We will have small, medium, and large lemonade, and ice pops too. My friend Winter and I are doing it. I REALLY hope you come. 🙂 (Dad notes: The sale will be our house at 432 Main St. in Tatamy. Call with questions at 484-280-7533.)
Have you ever been to Grist Mill House? Because I have. Jan Delvey is the owner of it. Her favorite part of her job is all the painting she gets to do. Jan has worked at the Grist Mill House for over 3 years. She says that when she bought the Grist Mill House she “gave a gift to Tatamy.” When Jan bought the Grist Mill House there was still a water wheel in the basement and it’s still there. A while ago a train would go through what is now the walking trail when people got off the train lots of them would come to the Grist Mill House. They’re selling ornaments for a sick baby named Hadley. Come now before the Grist Mill House closes in the winter but they will have paint parties even though the store won’t be open and the store will open again in the spring. If you go I hope you’ll like it, because I know I did. (Dad note: For holiday crafts and gifts, go to the mill at 396 Bushkill St.)
Have you ever been to the Tatamy car show? I have and it is a lot of fun seeing old cars, new cars, and all kinds of different cars. There where some crazy cars and some super cool cars. I did a blog on someone who had two super cool cars and one of them was there! There was 105 cars there. I couldn’t believe how many cars were there, and so many different brands. IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I meant to do a little heads up yesterday but I forgot. So check out all of my pictures.
