Proceeds from the Summerfest at Mt. Zion Lutheran Church, Krumsville, will benefit Wyatt Newhard, a Northwestern Lehigh student.
He has been fighting neuroblastoma, a cancer of the nervous system, since he was 3 years old.
A row of game stands went up one side of the festival field along with a flea market, but the first thing people saw was the bouncy house which gives kids some joyful exercise.
One family had stopped by a dog rescue before coming to Summerfest. The dog they chose was a Yorkie, which they said will probably be named, Avery.
Commemorative items from the 250th anniversary of the church were being sold. These included mugs, cookbooks and more. A quilt raffle was being held with the winner to be chosen at the Christmas bazaar from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 1.
Hot dogs at the food stand were donated by Berks Packing Company.
Wayne Sicher said Grace Miller knows he will carry any prizes she wins to the car as she did not want to carry them around.
Kempton Fire Company had a crew ready to answer questions about the fire engine.
The Majestics did a great job of musically entertaining the Summerfest visitors. The stage is large giving them plenty of room.
Vocalist Bill Townsend said “Smokey Mountain Memory” is one of his favorite songs. Johnny Cash’s “I Walk the Line” was one of the many requests. Another request was “For the Good Times,” a song the band seldom includes but everyone enjoyed.
Townsend and Ralph Noll took turns as vocalists.
