Stop down and enjoy French fries and hot sausage sandwiches at the refreshment stand. And if you are still young at heart-try out the ferris wheel.


I have noticed occasions when all three base ball fields are in use at the same time at the War Memorial and Eleanor Risko parks. Besides that, both the basketball court and volleyball court get lots of use. The community is fortunate to have such a first class recreation facility. Support it.


At last report the Conrad Chiropractic/ Lilly American Legion City League team was 9-0 for the season. On June 30th at 3:00 PM the Lilly team will play J&D Gun Sales here in Lilly in a benefit game. All proceeds of the game will go to the Central Pennsylvania Humane Society. Gate admission will welcome cat or dog food or a cash donation. Come watch a good game and help a deserving cause.
