Lilly Lines by Jack Barlick       886-4694                                                               


This Saturday starting at 9:00 AM will see the Lilly area overflowed with visitors for the town wide yard sale. Set up a table or two and make a few bucks. There is no fee or no map this year for the event sponsored by the Lilly Decorating committee. There will also be a bake sale at St. Luke’s Church and a chicken bar-b-que dinner served by the firemen at the pavilion in the park yard. Enjoy the day. The Historical Society will be selling some old books at the firemen’s pavilion.


This coming Monday and Tuesday, August 5th and 6th, there will be Triple AAABA games at the Lilly War Memorial field each afternoon. Check local news for game times. Come out to the ball park and enjoy some lively baseball as teams from various states compete. If nothing more, stop by for some French fries and a hot sausage sandwich. My orders in!


Once the Triple AAABA Tournament wraps up we will be approaching football season. The Lilly field gets a lot of use as the Raiders practice and play into the fall. Won’t be long until the Penn Cambria pep rally  kicks off the season with a bonfire at the War Memorial field.


August 18th will be an enjoyable day as the annual Polish Picnic hosted by Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church will be held on the church grounds on Hilltop Street. The event will run from 11:00 AM until 9:00 PM and features some of your favorite ethnic foods. If you like perogies and pigs in the blanket stop by early as there is always a long line for these Polish favorites. There is something for every one at this event including music by the Masters, Raging Slagg and the Hallmarks that we all can enjoy.
