We would like to thank Dalo’s Bakery, Dunkin Donuts, Wise Potato Chips, Weis Markets, Giant Food Stores, Gallagher Transportation, Drasher’s Farm, Brian Campbell Farms, and Rocky Ridge Greenhouse. Personal donations to the event were provided by Maryann Whitmire, Wendy DeFranco, Brian Buck, Josanne Fries, Sandy McAfee,
