July 01, 2019 - PA State Rally

Pennsylvania: Capitol Area Winnies

Another great PA State WIT Rally is behind us.  This year the rally was moved to the back of the Grange Fairgrounds and attendees really liked that location.  The area was very quiet and we had two very large buildings available for our use. 

The rally theme this year was “Celebrating 50 Years WIT You” in honor of  WIT Club‘s 50th anniversary.  As usual there were lots of vendors and seminars along with good food and entertainment.  Friday night we enjoyed ventriloquist Cindy Speck, , who had the crowd laughing with her variety of puppets, and we rocked to the music of the Steel Creek Band on Saturday night.  There were drawings for door prizes, a money hat and PA baskets with Phil & Dale Henderson being the lucky winners of one of the baskets.

Between activities many of us ventured to other areas of the fairgrounds to enjoy the good food at the horse auction and the gospel festival.  We also topped off several evenings by gathering together for lots of good conversation and laughs.  Thanks to Dan & Gemma for getting us to remember different types of candy we enjoyed as kids and to Terry for getting us all to look skyward as we posed for a group photo!

One of the annual highlights of the rally is the beanbag baseball tournament.  We had a good time competing with the other teams (especially the Massachusetts group and a special young man named T who really enjoyed participating).  Congratulations go out to the CAW team as they were the champions for the third consecutive year!!!
