The Annual Reinholds Station Trinity Chapel Craft Festival will be presented on Saturday, August 1 on the chapel grounds along Main Street in Reinholds. The Festival starts at 10:00 a.m. and runs until 3:00 p.m. This event includes traditional folk art, quality crafts, paintings, baked goods and good food, and promises to be a day of fun and entertainment while aiding in the preservation efforts of this historic landmark.

The chapel was erected in 1898 on land donated to the community by Cyrus Lutz, then owner of the Black Horse Hotel, and Sunday School services were held there until 1984. In 1987 efforts were begun to preserve the chapel for historical purposes, and the Preservation Committee was formed. In 1989, the chapel joined the Historic Preservation Trust of Lancaster County, and in 1990 was nominated for inclusion on the National Register. Proceeds from this Festival, as well as all fundraising efforts by the Committee go toward ongoing maintenance of this landmark.

The Cocalico School District held its annual summer band program from Monday, July 13 through Thursday, July 16 in the Cocalico Middle School. This program was open to all students in the Cocalico School District in grades fifth through twelfth. Approximately 85 students attended each of the four days of this summer camp.

During each day, students worked on basic instrumental skills, small group sectional rehearsals and large group band selections. In addition to the rehearsals, students performed a concert open to the public, which showcases the selections that the students worked on during the camp. Pieces that were rehearsed and performed included many different genres, from “Manchester March” to the jubilant “Dancin’ On The Bayou” to the very popular hit song “Uptown Funk.”

This camp allows students the opportunity to keep up with the playing of their instruments over the summer months, the learning of new musical skills, a sampling of new music, which may be featured in next year’s band programs, and most importantly, the joy of getting together and creating music! Based on the outstanding results of this year’s camp, the students of Cocalico should have an excellent school year to look forward to in the fall!
