The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Philadelphia and the Susquehanna Valley will hold the 22nd annual Mother s Day Truck Convoy and Family Fun Festival on May 8 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Burle Business Park on New Holland Avenue in Lancaster. Day long activities for children and adults of all ages begin at 8:30 a.m. with the famous Make-A-Wish auction. The auction promises to include fantastic gifts for Mom, as well as items the entire family will enjoy.

Food, games, live entertainment and the largest gathering of clowns in the Susquehanna Valley will be available all day at the Burle Business Park. Admission is free. At 1:30 p.m. hundreds of trucks will depart from Burle Business Park and travel on the following route: west on Route 30 to Route 222; Route 222 to the Brownstown exit; through Akron to Ephrata then to State Street; Route 322 and then return to Burle Business Park. Free shuttle bus transportation will be provided from the parking lots of Lancaster Catholic High School and Grandview Plaza on New Holland Avenue. We are so thankful to the community for their continued support of the Mother s Day Truck Convoy, said Randy Etzweiler, convoy chair. Since the inception of the convoy, more than 1,000 wishes have been granted. This event is a vital fund-raising event for our organization and ensures that we can continue to grant wishes to children all over the Susquehanna Valley.
