While I have a second to sit down, I thought I'd remind everyone to please RSVP to me if they are planning to attend this year's Lehigh Valley Fan Meet. Thank you to those of you who have already reached out to me on this matter; your attentiveness is greatly appreciated!
Here's a basic run-down. I will be at the community center at around 2 PM on Friday afternoon, ready and waiting for the early arrivals to set up. It's first come, first served tables and chairs. There are PLENTY of them (it's a cafeteria during the school year). There are approximately 12 long tables that we are able to utilize. I cannot stress this enough: for the first time since 2011, we are FINALLY out of the elements and in a huge, electrified room with central AC!
At 6 PM, we will lock the doors and retreat for a Dutch Treat dinner to the Keystone Pub. The address is: 3259 Easton Ave. Bethlehem, PA 18020. I selected this restaurant because of the location, pricing of food, and variety, along with showing everyone a little bit of Bethlehem history (the building itself was once a grist mill, erected in 1806).
The meet begins on Saturday at 8 AM. Food and drinks will be provided by the St. Anne's chapter of the Knights of Columbus at approximately 12:30. For those of you active on YouTube...yes, this is indeed the site of my series of videos entitled "The Fans of St. Anne's," and because of this, I will be providing a tour of both the church and school alongside the pastor, Fr. Anthony Mongiello, to curious ceiling fan collectors looking for a better view at the inventory! Here's a preview of what I am referring to:
I will be providing two raffle fans, and a donation box will be prominently displayed. If anyone planning to attend wishes to entertain us with a fan seminar during the meet, please PM me and let me know!
That's about it for now. I will keep all of you abreast with any additional updates. In the meantime...IS ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE JUST AS EXCITED AS I AM?!?
Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!!!
