Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one …….
Those words will be spoken out loud all over the word in a few days as the last seconds of 2011 come to pass. And if you are at one of the dozens of gatherings through-out the country, you will get to see some item drop to welcome in the New Year. There are several of these celebrations right here in Pennsylvania, which according to Wikipedia leads the nation in dropping inanimate objects on New Years Eve. The citizens of the Commonwealth are a bit quirky. Right here in central Pennsylvania, we drop everything from the Huckleberry in New Bloomfield, a cow in Blain, a pickle in Dillsburg, a strawberry in Harrisburg, a Hershey Kiss in Hershey, a full size sprint car in Port Royal, a wrench in Mechanicsburg, an over-sized lighting glider sled in Duncannon, to the giant M&M dropped at midnight UTC (coordinated universal time) in Elizabethtown to correspond with midnight in sister city Letterkenny in Ireland. However our favorite thing dropped is right here in our back yard, a giant bag of Hartley’s Potato Chips in Lewistown.
With so many things to go watch fall on New Years Eve, why stay at home. Maybe the staff here at Lerch RV should start dropping an RV to welcome in the New Year. Unfortunately that would be a major undertaking. I believe it would be easier to just watch our low prices drop even lower. So in honor of the New Year, beginning January 12-14 and continuing January 19-21, we will have our 35th Anniversary Winter Sale. So mark those calendars and if you are not too tired of watching things drop on New Years Eve, come visit us here in Milroy. And allow us to help you find that new or pre-owned camper for the new year.
Safe Travels and Happy RVing in the year to come!
