First Tagging Party of the Season!

WUP is going to be having the first tagging party of the season at Kegel’s Produce at 2851 Old Tree Dr, Lancaster, PA 17603 on September 30, 2016 from 7pm-9pm.

What is a tagging party?  Well, each item that WUP puts out gets a tag explaining why the item has been left our and and how to care for it.  Here’s an example of one of our tags below.

Due to the volume of items WUP gets, it’s very time consuming for one or two people to do, but, know the old saying “many hands make light work”?  Yup, we need your help!

Veggie and fruit trays will be provided as refreshments, but feel free to bring your own dish to share, as well.  Oh, and bring your current knitting and/or crochet projects in to work on for a sit and stitch, too!

Kegel’s would like us cleaned up and out of the building no later than 10pm, so that is all the later we should be in there working.  If you can stay to help clean up, it would be greatly appreciated.

For more information and to RSVP, please check out the event on Facebook.

Baseball Game Wrap Up

The Wrap Up! Lancaster Project had a very successful night at the June 24th game of the Lancaster Barnstormers, where WUL founder Angelia Reed threw the first pitch of the game as a part of her being honored by the Emerald Foundation’s Hometown Hero.  She did awesome!

Member of WUL were treated to great seats to watch the game, and we generated a lot of interest at the information table we had set up.  Thank you to all who visited us!

There was one special moment at the table when a woman came up to us.  She seemed like she was a bit down on her luck, but after we told her who we are and what we do, she perked up and said, “I took one of those scarves off a tree!”  She was quite happy to learn who we were, and we were glad to know that we made a difference in her life, too.

Here’s a video of Angelia throwing the first pitch!

We also have some great photo we’d like to share.  If you were in attendance at the game and took any photos or video, please pass them along to us on our Facebook page.
