Hello All!

Chicken BBQ & Open House

We are getting closer and closer to this exciting event! If you haven't already marked it on your calendar, please do it now! On Saturday, August 13th we will be hosting our 4th Annual Open House in conjunction with the Lititz Craft Show and this year will be bigger than ever! There will be chicken BBQ meals made by a local professional (Peter's from Manheim), Penny's Ice Cream Truck, a bounce house for the kids, and a live band from 10am to 2pm.

In addition to all of those exciting events, our show room, flooring mill, and Antiques Loft Will be open for you to come and see just what it is that we do here at Sylvan Brandt. BBQ meals are just $10 (just chicken will be available also if you do not desire to get the entire meal) and all proceeds are being donated to the Jack Reich Memorial Fund. It would be a huge help if you would call our office at (717) 626-4520 to pre-order your tickets, but chicken will also be available to purchase on the day of. We hope to see you!

Featured Item      
Antique 1923 Snow Guards         
I love when antiques have dates on them. How cool are these snow guards from 1923?! These are used to keep snow and ice from falling off the roof in large pieces.

Out Of The Past

110 Years Ago
August 10, 1906
Town Talk
All houses in the borough should be numbered. You can get numbers by calling at this office.

Horseless Machines
Automobiling through the streets of our borough at a reckless speed was noticeable the past week. We are glad to say this is not done by local owners of these horseless machines, but by strangers who come this way to show off. A few more arrests and fines may bring about a halt in this kind of speeding.

120 Years Ago
August 7, 1896
Finally, a Fourth
The twice postponed Fourth of July celebration at last came off last Saturday evening. By eight o' clock the grounds bore the appearance of a Fourth of July crowd, there being at least several thousand present.
The fireworks were a good selection and required about an hour and a half until the last piece was discharged. From the remarks we heard, everybody was satisfied with the pyrotechnic display, as it was superior to any before given here.
While many repaired homeward at an early hour, others lingered until almost the last light burned out, no doubt wishing they could have remained longer under the soft rays of the many candles, Chinese lanterns, and fairy lamps.

Town Gossip
We are reliably informed that the Kickapoo Indian medicine had a bad effect on certain Manheimers.

Manheim Misadventures

The Manheim Citizens band is giving Saturday evening concerts in the square of the borough. If Lititz had such an organization we might have concerts here also.
