Large Animal Protection Agency and ORCA


Whether creatures are large or small I have always had a heart for horses, dogs, cats, birds. These wonderful creatures  are loving and never cast you to the side.
It is we as humans who cast our beautiful loved creatures to the side. They can't survive unless we take care of them.
Through the years I have helped and given to both of of these wonderful organizations who tirelessly give of themselves to help and save those who depend on us.
This Christmas season would you please remember them and send a donation.  Place them on your list throughout the year as no matter the size of the gift it will be appreciated from those who serve to those that the services are given to to.
Help save a life, make a difference!

"Christmas and the American Dream"




"Christmas and the American Dream"

As we all know these are very difficult times and the world is struggling, especially our homeland, America.  America where dreams are brought to life.  
This Christmas we ask that you please think of your hometown business owner who has fulfilled their dream but now it is in jeopardy because of the economy.
You can make a difference to the small business owner by shopping at your local stores and supporting them.  Forever they will be grateful and it will help to bring America thrive again. Without you businesses will be lost and dreams will be forsaken.   It is you who can make a difference.  The local shop owner will be grateful and they in turn will and can give back to their community.
These are thoughts for your Christmas

We need you to keep our businesses alive and open.  Without you we will not exist and one more person has lost the American dream and one more person's family has fallen onto hard times.
Christmas is about giving, reaching out to one another and opening our hearts.
Keep the Star Above Shining this Christmas and sharing the blessing of Hope unto others.
We will be thrilled to have you walk through our doors!

"STRAIGHT NO CHASER" AT THE HERSHEY THEATER



November 20, 2011
Performing at the Hershey Theatre

Founded at Indiana University in the fall of 1996, Straight No Chaser’s goal was to expand the boundaries of the traditional college a cappella group.  From the start, they viewed themselves more like a local band that just happened to use their voices as their instruments.  As original member Randy Stine comments, “We take the music very seriously; we just don’t take ourselves too seriously.”  In the process, they are reinventing the idea of a cappella on the modern pop landscape.

If you have not heard this group you are in for a fantastic night out!

The Olde Square is located just twenty minutes from Hershey.  Easy on and off Route 283.  
Come and stay the night and have a nightcap by the fireplace or at one of our great local restaurants.

Hershey Theatre presents Jim Brickman




                           .December 1, 2011.



I loved my first concert that Jim Brickman performed!  Music of the heart and just filled the spirit with joy.  You won't want to miss this concert because Jim Brickman is one of the very best for piano sound.
Brickman has revolutionized the sound of solo piano with his pop-style instrumentals and star-studded guest vocals. Since the 1994 release of his debut album No Words, Brickman’s romantic piano sound has made him a marquis name among contemporary instrumental hit-makers. His signature style of playing and songwriting has also brought him six Gold and Platinum-selling albums, the most charted Adult Contemporary hits of the decade (30), two Grammy nods (in 2003 and 2009), two SESAC “Songwriter of the Year” awards, a Canadian Country Music Award, and a Dove Award (presented by the Gospel Music Association). 
A great evening to be experienced in the Hershey Theater.
Have dinner at one of the delicious restaurants in Mount Joy and spend the night at the Olde Square Inn.  The fireplace and an excellent breakfast is waiting for you.
Just twenty minutes from Hershey and easy off on Route 283.
You will love it here!  Give us a try.
