Rockin’ the Gardens

By on September 5, 2018

Over 200 countians enjoyed an evening of great music and sweet treats last Sunday during the Lititz Historical Foundation’s annual ice cream social on Sept. 2. The event, which took place in the organization’s Mary Oehme Gardens, was free and open to the public.

The Mary Oehme Gardens were packed as over 200 people of all ages enjoyed ice cream, light refreshments, and great rock and roll music last Sunday evening.

Event volunteer Carrie Genevish helped hand out inflatable air guitars to both kids and kids at heart.

Kelsey Smith-Stolzfus, 3, and Riley Smith-Stolzfus, 6, juggle both air guitars and cookies and cream ice cream.

Situated on lawn chairs, blankets, and benches stationed around the grounds, attendees took in the sounds of all-girl band Steel Radiance, who played rockin’ covers from the 70s for over two hours.

While scoop after scoop of ice cream was being served, inflatable “air” guitars, leis, and peace sign necklaces were handed out to the countless kids who were in attendance.
As the tunes played, a makeshift dance floor in front of the stage opened up, and guests took full advantage, proving to be a great way to burn off those calories.

The evening was sponsored by Woodstream. Greco’s of Lititz was also very generous in donating all of the ice cream served throughout the evening.
