Building Community…in Lower Milford

Standard

Fourth Saturday in September, 11 years running, is the Lower Milford Township Fall Festival At the township building.  Amidst the hayrides, Duck Pond, sausage sandwiches, and bake sales is the ever popular SILENT AUCTION.

That’s where Weinberger’s been all this week, will be the remainder of the week, and could be found many days in June, July, and August.  A gargantuan task for sure, but one we community folks enjoy yearly.  Where else can you walk away with a gift basket, antique, or fun oddity for $2….or $200?

Using donated, once-loved items, my friend Shirley and I create gift baskets.  98 this year.

But that’s only part of the story.  Take a look at a few of the tables holding our additional 450+ donated items!!  Total items…somewhere pushing 600.

No township meetings here!  Only the Silent Auction, ready for Saturday.

Oh, yes, we have it all.  Take a little picture walk. . .

Did someone really have these in their home?!

It’s life in rural America.  Nestled amongst corn fields, cold-water streams, and rolling hills, Lower Milford is truly the ” Jewel in the Crown” of Lehigh County.  Festival fun brings us together once a year.  C’mon out and play!
