TCCCA Earth Day Celebration

April 21st, 2018 No comments

Join the fun at the free Conewago Creek Earth Day Celebration on the banks of the creek at Aberdeen Mills, Saturday, April 21st from 12 pm to 4 pm. There will be many fun and informative activities throughout the afternoon including live animals, guided walks, refreshments, and giveaways. Special presentations include Zoo America, wildflower walks, fish surveys, electro-fishing and more!


This is the tenth year of this fun, free, family oriented event, thanks to sponsorship from the Tri-County Conewago Creek Association (TCCCA) and the hospitality of Aberdeen Mills, a historic mill and farmstead in Elizabethtown. The watershed organization will be offering food items for sale with the proceeds benefiting TCCCA. Attendees can go home with free wildflower seeds or a native tree seedling. The rain date is April 22nd, with all other times remaining the same.


Tree planting starts at 9 am. Volunteers will receive a free meal from the food stand!

A wildflower and tree identification walk will kick off at 12 pm.

Tours through the old mill will also be offered.

Zoo America will be giving a live animal presentation at 1 pm. Feel free to bring along a lawn chair or blanket, if you prefer to sit during the show.

The Lancaster County Conservation District will give an electro-fishing demonstration at 3 pm.


TCCCA and Aberdeen Mills are part of the Conewago Creek Initiative, a partnership working collectively to restore water quality in the Conewago watershed.  Visit to learn more.

Praise&Worship Show: Nature Theme

July 20th, 2014 2 comments
I saw a back-to-school commercial the other day and thought, “Oh no…summer is almost over!”  Since we’re usually spending more time outdoors in these warmer months, I wanted to do a special Nature Theme…before fall returns.
If you think of it in time, today’s playlist would go so perfectly with a hike, bike ride, walk or even a cup of coffee out on the porch.  (Look up Psalm 8 for some theme-related reading material.)  WJTL’s free new app would come in handy to take these songs on the go!  (Download at the banner on the right or by searching “WJTL” on iTunes.)
Email me if you’d like to join the weekly playlist email group–or if you have theme/song/worship leader suggestions.
