April showers Lititz with events Volunteer meeting April 4
Now that spring is in the air, America’s Coolest Small Town will soon be bustling with outdoor community events for folks of all ages.
Kelly Withum of Venture Lititz is holding another meeting for those wishing to volunteer to be part of the year-long celebration of Lititz’s victory. The meeting is slated for April 4 at 6:30 p.m. at the Lititz Borough office, 7 S. Broad St. Those who attend will have the opportunity to sign up to help out with several upcoming events.
On April 12, the downtown area comes to life as entertainers, food vendors and local organizations take to the streets for 2nd Friday. Most downtown merchants will be open until 9 p.m. and parking is free. Visit lititzpa.com for more details about this monthly event.
Sauder’s Egg Run/Walk
Next weekend, Sauder’s Eggs will host their 21st annual 5K Walk/Run on April 13 at 9 a.m. Cash prizes will be awarded for the top three overall runners and walkers, as well as victors within set age brackets.
The race begins at the Lititz Fire Company, 24 W. Main St., and proceeds benefit local volunteer fire companies. To sign up or learn more, visit saudereggs.com. The deadline to register to participate is April 5.
‘Spring Clean Lititz’
A town, like a home, needs a good spring cleaning. Volunteers are needed to help "Spring Clean Lititz" on April 20, from 8 a.m. until cleaning is finished. Crews will pick up litter, weed, mulch tree wells, and spruce up certain alleys. To volunteer, e-mail email@example.com.
Touted as "a new twist on an old favorite," the second annual Pretzel Fest, slated for April 27, is certain to be full of fun and food. "Twisted Minute To Win It" will return, as will the celebrity dunk tank. The event also features German folk dancers, as well as local chefs competing for the title of Top Pretzel Chef and nine other delicious pretzel tasting stations.
Advanced tickets for Pretzel Fest cost $7 and can be purchased at downtown Lititz retail locations and at the Rudy Building, 27-31 E. Main St. Online tickets, at $7.50 each, may be obtained at lititzpretzelfest.com. Proceeds from the event benefit the Lititz/Warwick Community Chest Food Bank and The Eliminate Project.
Pretzel Fest volunteers are needed to man stations for "Minute to Win It" challenges, pretzel tasting and the dunk tank. This is a four hour commitment. If interested, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rock Lititz Tour
On April 28, cyclists come to town for the second annual Rock Lititz Tour. Co-hosted by Clair Brothers, Tait Towers and Atomic Lighting, this rockin’ race with its multiple courses and brackets draws riders of all ages and skill levels to Lititz.
Touted as "a fast and fun four-corner criterium," last year’s race drew approximately 300 riders and 2,000 spectators to Lititz. There will be live music and a variety of vendors. An exciting addition to this year’s festivities is a downtown Biergarten.
Cash prizes, trophies and medals will be awarded to winners. Races begin at 11:30 a.m. and continue through 5 p.m. Races for children take place at 3:30 p.m.
Cyclists can register the day of the event, or online at bikereg.com/Net/18649. Online registration closes on April 26 at 2 p.m. Anyone interested in offering host housing for visiting riders should contact Rich Ruoff at 391-9722.
Volunteers are needed to help at the Rock Lititz Tour in several areas. Three shifts of eight people are needed to assist in being crossing guards during the race. There will be an orientation before the race. This is a three-hour time commitment. Eight volunteers are also needed to man the "Final Turn Biergarten," checking IDs and selling tickets. This would require a four-hour time commitment. If interested, e-mail email@example.com.
Coolest Community Celebration
April will also be a month of preparation, as big plans are underway for a May 10 (2nd Friday) community celebration of Lititz’s "Coolest Small Town in America" accolade. The event will run the duration of a typical 2nd Friday, but will be far more spectacular than most.
Venture Lititz is pulling out all the stops for the community celebration and seeks a cadre of volunteers and input. The May 10 celebration will be a topic of discussion at this Thursday’s volunteer meeting; new faces are always welcome. More APRIL EVENTS, page A15
