s a child and parent, some of my fondest memories are of family vacations. Growing up, we were a camping family and we did it often. Hickory Run, Starlite, and Shady Oaks were just a few of the campgrounds that became our home away from home in the summertime. I learned that kids are kids, no matter where they come from and making new friends wasn’t so hard once you got the hang of it. Naturally, when I started a family, we went camping too, but the names were, Pequea Creek and Yogi Bear, where my son caught his first fish. I still love camping in Pennsylvania, but this isn’t about camping specifically, it’s about vacations. And making time for them. As my children got older and more involved in sports, we took fewer vacations and getaways because there just wasn’t time – or so we thought. I’m not disparaging youth sports, there are plenty of life lessons to be learned by being part of a team. I want to encourage parents to make time for time off. Even if it’s a just a couple long weekends – your kids will thank you for it later and maybe even now. Prioritizing a family vacation or weekend getaway helps you to reconnect and strengthen family bonds. During our PA Family Travel Fair in April, I had the opportunity to talk to families from all over Pennsylvania who were impressed by the number of quality family-friendly destinations within a short drive. When you vacation in PA, you don’t have to spend your kid’s college fund. There are many budget-friendly experiences just waiting to be had. As you browse the pages of our summer issue and see an event, destination or attraction that interests you, go. Do it. Make it a priority and make memories because all that stuff you left behind, will still be there when you get back.

here are few things in this world that trigger a case of nostalgia for Baby Boomers like drive-in movie theaters. But it isn’t only boomers who appreciate these icons of entertainment; Gen Xers and Millennials are packing the kids in the car or setting out for the perfect date night. Seriously, if you want to score some points with your significant other, a surprise trip to one of Pennsylvania’s drive-ins would be a great departure from the same old date-night routine. Pennsylvania was an early adopter of the outdoor movie theater craze. In April 1934, Shankweiler’s Drive-In in Orefield, Lehigh County, became the second drive-in movie theater to

open in the U.S. Today, it is the oldest operating drive-in in the country. The Keystone State ranks second behind New York in the number still in operation. The evolution of technology, like the switch from window speakers to radio sound and the move from traditional to digital screens, has improved the quality of picture and sound. But the essence of the drivein experience hasn’t changed in more than 70 years - waiting for the sun to go down, the smell of freshly popped popcorn and making memories with family and friends. My own memories include a carload of friends as a teenager and then going back to the Columbia Drive-In (no longer in operation) / 2018 W&W summer / 7 /


as a young family with our children watching from the open hatchback of our car. I plan to make new memories with my grandchildren this summer; how about you?

ans of action movies who have fantasized about being right there on the set when the bombs burst in air should make plans now to be in Chambersburg, the Franklin County seat, on Friday and Saturday, July 20 and 21. The culmination of the annual 1864 Ransoming, Burning & Rebirth of Chambersburg is a Hollywood-caliber re-enactment of the destruction of the borough by Confederate General “Tiger” John McClausland and his troops and its equally dramatic rise from the ashes. “Had the Chambersburg residents of 1864 not decided to persevere and rebuild, we would not be commemorating the town’s rebirth,” said Franklin County Visitors Bureau (FCVB) executive director Janet Pollard. “That human spirit has continued and translates to the steady growth that the

county has enjoyed.” Festivities will begin just 12 miles south in Greencastle with a Civil War Ball at Allison-Antrim Museum’s German Bank Barn on Friday evening. The elegant soiree will feature the Victorian Dance Ensemble, an awardwinning outfit from Camp Hill that has been the highlight of such events for more than 20 years. On Saturday, the focus will solely be on Chambersburg, which, according to historical record, had been ransacked by Confederate troops on numerous occasions since 1861, two years prior to the Battle of Gettysburg. According to the book “Great Invasion” by Chambersburg merchant Jacob Hoke, any remaining cash and gold had been sent east to banks in Harrisburg and Philadelphia, leaving the citizens helpless against McClaus-

parades that dot communities throughout Pennsylvania. However, in one suburban Philadelphia community, this year takes on special meaning. This year marks the 150th anniversary of Malvern’s Memorial Parade, which incidentally is held the weekend after Memorial Day itself - this year, Sunday, June 3. The tradition began back in 1868, when Memorial Day (then called Decoration Day) was first declared as a day for the nation to honor the memory of soldiers killed in battle. It’s said to be one of the first such observances in the nation, and it’s been a staple of the borough’s heritage ever since.

“It only West Chester all feels like wanted parades we’ve been of their own, doing it from therefore comthe start,” says peting for a limFrank Ortner ited number of with a laugh. fire wagons and Ortner, along veterans looking with his wife, to participate.

The Paoli Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5203 is the host veteran organization. Why the late date for the celebration each year? Legend has it that early on, the Decoration Day parades were rapidly growing in popularity among local veterans’ groups, and the communities of Malvern, Wayne, and

With homes and businesses decked in their patriotic finery, the Malvern community embraces the spirit of the event.

As for the parade itself, get set for quite a spectacle, especially for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s special sesquicentennial commemoration. From police vehicles and fire trucks to antique cars, Shriners, and the Scouts, the parade is one that strives to welcome and include participants of all ages. At least eight different marching bands are expected to perform, as well as military color guards, mili-

tary vehicles, and a host of other groups. The parade will kick off by King Street and the Malvern Fire House on the east end of the Borough and end at the Paoli Memorial Grounds, where a special ceremony will take place to honor all those who have been in the Armed Forces and to commemorate the Battle of Paoli, which took place on the site during the Revolutionary War. In all, as many

as 1,500 people are expected to take part in the parade, with thousands more expected to line the streets and the park to cheer on the marchers. “I love to watch the faces of the kids who are witnessing the parade for the first time,” says Ortner, who suggests that those who are experiencing it for the first time do so from the park, just as the parade enters the area. “It’s always fun to watch the Mummers bands, and we expect a larger turnout this year from the military. I’m looking forward to that.”

The 150th Malvern Memorial Parade takes place rain or shine on Sunday, June 3, beginning at 1:30 p.m. Numerous activities, ranging from a Freedom Run to a community dinner and a Revolutionary War re-enactment, will round out the weekend, and the public is invited to take part in any or all activities to truly be a part of this special weekend in Malvern’s history.

Children along the parade route anxiously wait to fill their bags with candy given out by the various organizations and businesses in the parade.

ummer, the season of cookouts and campouts, family vacations and spectacular sunshine, is the time of year when people naturally look to spend time in or near water. Fly fishing in mountain creeks, swimming in public pools or simply watching the summer sun reflect off gentle waves of a lake are but a few of the ways folks spend their leisure time by bodies of water across Pennsylvania. One event, The Regatta at Lake Arthur, held annually at Moraine State Park’s South Shore the first weekend of August, is the perfect way to celebrate the season, savor the scenery and enjoy time relaxing on the water. Since the 18th century, regattas (from the Venetian word regatta,

meaning “contention for mastery”) have brought people together for rowed or sailed boat competitions that include social and entertainment activities surrounding the races themselves. The joy of competing, creating camaraderie among participants and promoting boating skills are what attract participants and visitors to these events. It is these experiences that visitors can expect to discover at the two-day event that will take place this year on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 4 and 5, in Butler County. The 20th annual Regatta at Lake Arthur is expected to draw thousands of visitors to experience and enjoy the 3,225 acres of Moraine State Park and its 40 miles of sce-

nic shoreline.

There is no admission and many of the activities of the two-day regional event are free, making it a budget-friendly consideration for families looking for summer getaway ideas.

visitors to celebrate the great outdoors. Classes and instruction presented by representatives of sponsors like L.L. Bean, Northface and the team at Pennsylvania’s Department of Conservation and Natural Resources will introduce visitors to a wide variety of outdoor activities and skills. Visitors can explore new interests at scheduled sessions like stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking and yoga, while park staff will lead groups on hikes through surrounding areas of Moraine State Park.

One of the most popular events from last year’s regatta will return this year to delight attendees. DockDogs is a canine aquatic activity that gives the entire family an opportunity to compete on the water while including the family dog. From the docks of the lake, pet owners and their pooches compete in a variety of distance jumping contests. Members of the Pittsburgh-based 3 Rivers DockDog group will be on hand to coordinate the competition and to let Photo courtesy of visitors know how they can get their own dog participating in these fun events. Dog lovers will delight in this popular competition. Also set to take place throughout the weekend, the popular “SummersCool” program will encourage

various times, are a great opportunity for people to explore the park as well as to sample new activities they may be interested in exploring as part of a healthier lifestyle. All weekend the lush grounds of the park will serve as a beautiful backdrop for the car cruise, which is a popular draw during the event. Classic cars, restored roadsters and competitive vehicles will all be on display throughout the weekend. Car buffs will want to experience the unique collection of automobiles that will be displayed throughout The Regatta at Lake Arthur.

Saturday night will feature a spectacular fireworks display, which is a summertime staple of the event. On both days, vendors will offer regional dishes and popular summer fare as well as beverages and confections. Artists and artisans from across the region will also be on hand to share their crafts and products for display and sale throughout the weekend. The 2018 Regatta at Lake Arthur will take place on Aug. 4 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and on Aug. 5 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Full schedule details and more information about SummersCool classes, DockDogs, the car cruise and other events can be found at or by calling 724-687-0707.
