    I read it out loud to my 22 month old and he said “Yeah yeah”!

    Every time we hear the announcement our daughter asks us if we are going…and we answer her yes, each time! What tunnel is the one banner picture taken in? It looks like the lehigh Tunnel we just went through last evening.

    I would like to see the new location and I love the KCB program. I listen whenever I can. I am sure I would feel silly being there with no kids, all the grandchildren are out of state or out of country. Blessings to you all.

    What do I do if I don’t have a printer to print out tickets?

    Hi Evelyn! When you place your order, there’s an option under delivery method where you can click “mail”. Then, we will mail your tickets!

    Can’t say how upset i am that I wasn’t able to get online fast enough after the email about printing tickets to actually get them. I didn’t know there were going to be that few available. My son is going to be so very disappointed…

  12. August 21st, 2012 at 15:12 | #12

    Andy,

    I am so sorry! We only posted the reserved ticket link yesterday, and were very surprised that all all the tickets allotted were reserved within 24 hours. We are hearing from others with similar situations and really wish there could be space for everyone! We know we only have so many parking spaces and we know we only have so much room in the stage area. Once again we understand why you are upset and hope that we can have you come to an event in the future.

    Sincerely,

    Fred

    Ditto to what Andy said. I understand your situation but we had already told our kids about it when we heard it advertised earlier this month. They are very disappointed. I hope you have a similar event that we can get tickets to.

    We are very disappointed as well. We have been looking forward to this since it was anounced. With money being so tight we were very excited to hear that a Christian organization was doing somthing
    free for kids. So the only question is….when is the next event being held? Can we get on a list for
    tickets?
    Sincerely,
    a faithful listener

  15. Steven
    August 21st, 2012 at 16:35 | #15

    I am just upset that no one planned it any better my daughter was looking forward to the event and never knew that we needed tickets to a free event. She is just really disappointed like the other people wrote on facebook but they where taken down for some reason I wonder why?

  16. August 21st, 2012 at 17:17 | #16

    Donna, Abbey and Steven,

    I understand your disappointment and I am very sorry. I do appreciate the encouragement to keep doing events like this. Hopefully, this one will go very well and we will do it, or something like it, again.

    Steven, I’m not aware of any comments being taken down from Facebook concerning KCB by our staff. I guess it is possible someone made a comment and took it down themselves. We have tried to answer all the comments with honesty and understanding. We understand why people are disappointed and we are sorry we aren’t able to accommodate everyone.

    I am hoping that there will be another event like this soon. We are going to be out of town the weekend that this is, but my kids really wanted to come (even my 13 year old). We are so blessed to have WJTL in this area. It is a great station and I know that my kids will only hear music that I approve of.

    August 22nd, 2012 at 00:12 | #18

    Wow… I like many don’t have a computer to get these tix! Think about that please for future events…. really saddens me and my family!

  19. Patti Frdula
    August 22nd, 2012 at 00:24 | #19

    Maybe for future you could partner with your “neighbor” the Manheim Auto Auction. Their VP- Tim Van Dam is a believer and they have ample parking spaces & great shuttle buses…. Use your local resources! Get community businesses involved! This is such a shame! How can this be so limited????

  20. Chet
    August 22nd, 2012 at 07:46 | #20

    We were also really disappointed that we couldn’t get tickets. We heard that we needed to get tickets yesterday morning, and logged on that afternoon to get our tickets, and were very sad to discover that we were too late!!! :-(

  21. stacey
    August 22nd, 2012 at 11:06 | #21

    We’re sorry, too, Chet! We knew that people were excited about the event, but were certainly surprised when they went in 24 hours.

  22. stacey
    August 22nd, 2012 at 11:38 | #22

    Thanks for the feedback, Patti. We considered several parking and even shuttle options and are using some of our neighbors as resources for parking. We did also have to keep in mind the current space that we have here on site at the Junction Center for the concerts and events, etc. As we continue to grow here we will have more room to accommodate larger crowds. We wish we didn’t have to limit our numbers. Being our first event like this here, we just wanted to err on the side of caution.

  23. stacey
    August 22nd, 2012 at 11:39 | #23

    We’re sorry Patti, that was the best way for us to make them available for this event this time.

    I think this is totally awesome that all the tickets are gone & in such a quick timeframe! What an awesome testimony for KCB..so many lives are being impacted by the radio show. Way to go Lisa and all who are involved!! For those who have tickets…you’re blessed, for those who wanted to go and weren’t able to get tickets, you’re also blessed…perhaps you’ll get tickets for the next event and you may find that it will be even better than the one you missed the tickets for!

    August 22nd, 2012 at 20:17 | #25

    We’re very disappointed. We didn’t realize we needed tickets. I wish this would have been communicated more clearly right away.

    August 22nd, 2012 at 20:51 | #26

    We have had this event on the calendar since you first announced it and the kids were very excited. Unfortunately there was no indication originally that it would be a ticketed event. We were out of town only to return to a message that the tickets were gone. I understand the need to limit attendance however it would be best especially when involving enthusiastic children to announce from the beginning that there would be tickets and what the timetable for them would be. I appreciate you hosting this event we are just disappointed to not be able to attend.

    If anyone has 4 tickets that they are no longer able to use, please contact me. I kept telling my daughter we are going and when I got on the website, it said no more tickets. She is going to be so sad.

  28. Rebekah
    August 23rd, 2012 at 00:17 | #28

    So sad that I have to tell my daughter there are no tickets. when it was first announced, i do not recall anyone mentioning tickets to be downloaded. Very disappointed in this.

    @Jason

    @Rebekah

    Jason and Rebekah,

    Initially tickets were not needed. We have been getting such an overwhelming response from calls, emails and facebook that we began to be concerned that 5000 people would show up. We just don’t have that much parking space or that much room where we will be holding the concerts. This being our first event, we really have to make sure that we do this right. We can’t have the roads backed up and have our first event leave a bad taste in the mouths of the local authorities, East Hempfield Township or our neighbors.

    That’s why we decided to put a limit and require tickets. We made the free tickets available 9am on this past Monday morning and by Tuesday morning at 9am they were gone.

    We are so sorry. We wish everyone who wanted to come could. We would rather some be disappointed today, not able to get tickets, then disappointed on September 1st sitting on Junction Rd, backed up to Landisville only to be told there isn’t enough room for them to come to the fest.

    When you do an event for the first time, you learn so much. We hope that we are able to put our wisdom to work, not only for future events here at the Junction Center, but also for the next Kids Cookie Break Fest, if, Lord Willing, there is one.

    Sincerely,

    Fred

    Fred,

    I appreciate your comments and understand your concern about the roads backed up and so forth,
    but even I knew from the get go that this event was going to be a huge success.” It seems to me poor planning was involved here. You have many disappointed listeners. What about those that show up and don’t realize that it is now a ticketed event and you can’t get in without a ticket? Have you thought about that?

  31. August 24th, 2012 at 10:56 | #31

    Kathy,

    We are doing our best to get the word out that tickets are needed in hopes of not having that problem. We have been making regular announcements on the air, have posted to our website and to all our facebook pages, and emailed to our entire list (app. 20,000).

    As far as poor planning being involved, I will take full responsibility for that. I ask for your forgiveness and also your grace. This is the first big event at our new location and I hope we will learn lessons from our mistakes and from our successes that will benefit future events.

    Thank You,

    Fred

    I am so disappointed to hear this wasa ticketed event. I had seen the flyer on the website and spoken to my husband about it and had decided that we were going to take a road trip that weekend (we live in Scranton) to come and see the new facility. I was under the impression that we only needed to bring a canned good, I had not seen it was a ticketed event. We pray for a huge sucesses in this event and the many more that are sure to come. We will still be taking a road trip but, will just changes our plans to go cherry crest farms, shady maple, the flower and craft warehouse, the park at intercourse ( my children love the jungle gyms there). Thanks for allowing us to hear you via the internet–we love kids cookie break!!

  33. August 24th, 2012 at 18:03 | #33

    Amy,

    Thanks so much for the encouragement. I am sorry you won’t be able to be at the fest. Thanks for listening and I hope you have a great weekend visiting the Lancaster area.

    Too bad, so sad, no more tickets. What an awesome response to the Family Fun event!
    We drive by the station often as we live 2.5 miles from the station. Beautiful spot God has blessed WJTL with. Thanks for lifting high the name of Jesus!!!

    I have to echo other comments in how disappointed we are that we will not be able to attend. I did not know until today that it was CHANGED to a ticketed event, and also that tickets were gone already. A friend and I were planning to bring our kids and now we will have some very upset little girls. I appreciate the fact that you have limited space and that you have put in much effort to organize this event. I would imagine that any KCB event would be well attended and perhaps a larger venue should have been considered. It is also a diaappointment that tickets were free and that some people that got tickets are not going to show, there-by taking away from others who were comitted to coming with their kids.
    My girls do enjoy the kids cookie break, and I listen to your station on occasion. I appreciate the work that you do. However, really disappointed in the handling of this event

  36. August 25th, 2012 at 14:39 | #36

    Hey Kelli,

    I apologize that you were not able to get tickets and that your girls are upset. I do appreciate your message and that you enjoy the Kids Cooke Break and understand we are doing our best. We will be broadcasting live from the event and will be sharing interviews and portions of the concerts throughout the day September 1st.

    I am very disappointed that this is a ticked event now. We planned to come from Pittsburgh to this event. My 3 year old wanted to see the Donut Man. My mom just informed me that we can no longer go. How am I supposed to learn of this news so far away? Very disappointed and wish you would reconsider.

    Denise in Pittsburgh

  38. August 26th, 2012 at 18:47 | #38

    Hi Denise,

    We are sorry you were unable to get tickets and that your 3 year old will not be able to see the Donut Man. We will not be able to change and allow everyone in. There just isn’t enough parking or enough room where we will be holding the concerts.

    As you probably know, initially tickets were not needed. We received such an overwhelming response from calls, emails and facebook that we began to be concerned that 5000 people or more would show up. This being our first event, we really have to make sure that we do this right. We can’t have the roads backed up and have our first event leave a bad taste in the mouths of the local authorities, East Hempfield Township or our new neighbors.

    That’s why we decided to put a limit and require tickets. We made the free tickets available 9am on this past Monday morning and by Tuesday morning at 9am they were gone.

    Once again, we apologize for the disappointment. I’d rather have you be disappointed today, finding out you won’t be able to come, than finding out Saturday morning, after driving from Pittsburgh, that there is no more room.

    We hope to learn from our mistakes and our successes this year so that we can apply what we’ve learned to make future events better for everyone.

    Thanks,

    Fred

    Is there anyway that there is a waiting list if someone should no need them. We need 3 tickets, we’ve been lioming forward to this and had no idea that you needed tickets. I thought you were just selling the lunches. Very sad and disappointed.

  40. August 26th, 2012 at 20:28 | #40

    Hey Sue, Try posting on the WJTL facebook. Maybe someone will reply with tickets they don’t need.

    I have 3 extra tickets because friends of ours are not coming now. Not sure how to get them to you. Where do you live?

  42. Janet
    August 30th, 2012 at 14:47 | #42

    Another disappointed family. We had promised our 3 year old granddaughter that we would take her to the festival. After being on vacation for 2 weeks, we come home to learn that tickets are needed and are already gone. This was finitely poor planning and has made many disappointed children and families.

  43. August 30th, 2012 at 14:59 | #43

    Janet, I’m sorry that you were unable to get tickets. Please apologize to your 3 year old granddaughter for me. Our hope is that we learn lessons from our mistakes and from our successes that will benefit future events. Thank you for your grace!

    WoW!! I am SO thankful that I was able to get tickets. I’m a night owl. I think I was printing our tickets at 3 AM while everyone was dreaming of going to the fest!!
    So here’s my question…”the boxed lunches are sold out” will this mean that “walk ups for $7.00″ will not be happening? What will the potty facilities be? Thanks, can’t wait, WJTL rocks.

  45. August 31st, 2012 at 07:33 | #45

    Hey Tracey,

    There will be a limited supply of boxed lunches available for sale at the event for $7, while they last!

  46. August 31st, 2012 at 08:34 | #46

    We were planning for weeks to take three kids ( 2 nieces and a grand daughter) to this event. We were so excited we could do something with them. Found out yesterday I need tickets and you are out. That is SOOOOOO disappointing!!!!!!!! Why didnt you announce this at the beggining. Now I have 3 children upset and a college student who took the day off to spend with her cousins and niece and she is losing a day’s pay for now NOTHING. SO disappoionted!!!!!!!!!

  47. August 31st, 2012 at 08:43 | #47

    Hi Tammy,

    We are so sorry that your children and you are upset and disappointed.

    I was able to get tickets, but I was wondering if a 1-year-old baby needs a ticket to get in.
    Thanks!
