7/23/16 – Georgia Peach – Fresh from the Farms Sale – 11 am to 1 pm: The Peach Truck will be returning to our store for a second visit on this Saturday. If you missed out the first time, or just want some more of these delicious, tree-ripe, freestone Georgia peaches, you will not want to miss this event. These are not your usual “fresh” peaches at the grocery store that are plucked before they are actually ripe. Instead, these peaches are harvested just as they turn ripe, they are boxed on the truck, and then rushed up North to our location and others. Plus, they are sold for a bargain, in-season price! If you love peaches, be sure to mark your calendars for this day and show up early to get in line. Peaches will be sold by the 1/2 bushel (25 lb box) only. They are perfect for eating, baking, canning, and freezing!! Samples will be served. Credit card sales are preferred. For more information on The Peach Truck, please visit their website.

Notable Past Events
7/9/16 – Big Green Egg Demo Day – 11 am to 2 pm: We were grilling pizzas for about 3 hours. We hope you had a chance to stop by and to get a look at the Big Green Egg in action. Recap: The pizzas from the grill were as tasty as ever. Doug was a one-man kitchen outside, rolling out the pizza doughs, sprinkling the toppings, and baking them in the oven. The Big Green Egg creates a create convection baking enviroment with the addition of its ConvEggtor accessory that deflects all of the heat to the edges and prevents burning of the crust. Pizzas are one of our favorite items to cook on the Big Green Egg, and we hope that you were able to enjoy some of our creations.
6/11/16 – Weber Grill Demonstration Day: Jeremy from Weber was here grilling up some tasting food on the Weber Genesis E-310 grill. Recap: First it was pizza, then it was pierogies, then it was cookies and buffalo chicken dip! Everything was delicious, so we hope that you got a little sampling of just how versatile a Weber gas grill can be and just how easy it is to control the heat depending on what you are cooking.

8/22/15 – Adopt a Pet Day: Every summer we look forward to this exciting day at our store! The Western PA Humane Society will be in store and will bring a variety of dogs and cats to meet that are looking for a new loving home. We also had the Golden Retreivers in Need rescue and the Forever Beagle Home stop by and bring light to their efforts. Recap: The sun was shining and pets were all around! Our Adopt A Pet day went tremendously well once again. The Humane Society had 3 kittens and one dog adopted from our sight. Golden Retrievers in Need found 3 pet lovers to adopt some of their golden retrievers that are at their no-kill shelter in Ohio, so I’m sure that we will be meeting these loving canines shortly! Forever Beagle Home Rescue brought several Beagles and spoke to potential adopters all day, and we expect these connections to lead to a few more adoptions in the coming months. Thanks to all that stopped by to make this event a huge success once again, and a special thanks to all those that made generous donations to each of the groups in attendance!
