Cylo (Barnstormers Mascot) & Obie were at the Pleasant View Retirement Community Today April 18, 2009.

What a Beautiful Day in Penn Township. It was Sunny in the 70's and a great day to be out!!! Many of the residents had family and friends join them today on the grounds. There was plenty to do and see. Local clubs and Organzations were on hand to open their ideas to all. There was even a Kids Auction with Obie as Auctioneering( I think I will keep my day job!!!) all the kids stuff...bicycles, baskets of goodies, games & DVD's.

There were Fire trucks, Police Depts.,Barrel Train Ride, Song & Dance bands with little kids and older kids too having a Dance recittal at noon. Food stands everywhere. An afternoon Auction drew a full house crowd!!!! A great day to spend with Family!! Check out my Album for more pictures!!!

Make-a-Wish Clowns at Pleasant View Retirement Home, Manheim,Pa.

April 11,2009, today the Make-a-Wish clowns had a dress rehearsel at the office. After showing off our new outfits (GoodWill store bought)we had a discussion period concerning the Convoy this year. This is planning to be our BIGGEST YEAR Yet!!!!

After lots of laughs we split up in 2 groups and headed for local Retirement Homes. I took my group to Pleasant View Home in Manheim. We entertained the guests at the Dining halls and then walked the halls peeking into the rooms. I sure we made alot of smiles happpen today. We handed out stickers to the residents also. See the album for more pictures.
