We left Owego Naz around 8:30AM for the trip to Lancaster PA and arrived at our 3hotel around 2:00PM giving us a few hours to relax and/or take in shopping at the nearby outlet mall. Early Friday evening, we will drove to the  Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre for  dinner   and the "Camelot " production.

Saturday morning we traveled an hour to Fawn Grove for a day of sorting and packing clothing.  We broke up the day with a picnic lunch with the FGCC staff.  We took 1100 pounds of clothing with us, donated $400 towards a matching grant and we packed 90 boxes of clothing.  We began our return Saturn afternoon at 3:45PM and arrived back at Owego Naz around 10:00PM Saturday night.   A whirlwind weekend packed with fun and meaningful activities!
