Some of the MCCPA fun for 2018


MCCPA Annual Covered Bridge Cruise

Covered_Bridge

On Sunday October 28, MCCPA held the Annual Covered Bridge Cruise. The day started a little damp, but compared to most of 2018, the weather was pretty good. The Covered Bridge Cruise is a cruise through Lancaster County normally going through eleven to thirteen covered bridges. The views seen on the cruise are of the Amish farms and landscape that make Lancaster famous. Thanks to Mike Cole and Deb VanSickle for organizing the event. This year had some participates as far away as North Carolina. Last years tour was dedicated to Dennis Fanale. Denny was the guy who came up with the idea for the Covered Bridge Cruise. Starting 2019 the cruise will be called the Dennis Fanale Covered Bridge Cruise.

The night before the Covered Bridge Cruise, Mike and some out of town guests attend a Trunk or Treat Show at Little Britain Church, and then headed to the Oregon Dairy Country Restaurant for dinner. Many of the MCCPA staff and cruise participants also returned for breakfast.
