Lancaster County Tornado Brings Community Together

Lancaster County Wholesalers

This topic may not be directly related to the wholesale market, but I felt the need to wrote something after what I saw last week. I live 3/4 of a mile away from where the tornade ended in Narvon, PA, and I got to experience first-hand the incredible generosity of the Amish Community. 

On my way to the Keystone Wholesale Shows on Wednesday, February 24th, I drove by the damage on Cambridge Road and Route 340 at 6:30 AM, and there were already hundereds of community members cleaning up the rubble. By Friday thousands of craftsmen had rebuilt two barns, framed out a flattened schoolhouse, and cleaned up all of the rubble that was left in the tornado's wake. All of this work was done by volunteers, who took time away from their jobs and personal lives to help out their neighbors. 

To me, this is a testament to the incredible sense of community and strong work ethic that exists in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Seeing the entire Amish community band together in a time of crisis reminded me why I love Lancaster, and why I am honored to have the opportunity to work with so many of these local businesses.
