In the afternoon, character juggler Chris Ivey will astound attendees with his award winning feats.

Kay Moyer, educator on farm safety for Penn State’s Extension Department, will be attending with her crew, highlighting dental safety, fire safety, and Lyme disease. An egg toss, three-legged race, wheelbarrow race, and pie eating contest are planned. There will be two age groups for each contest: children and adult. Door prizes from local businesses will be drawn throughout the day.

The event is sponsored by Rothsville area churches (Jerusalem Lutheran, Millport Mennonite, St. Paul’s E.C., and Salem United Methodist), in conjunction with the Rothsville Fire Company and the Rothsville Ambulance Association.
