Lots of things happening around here before our fantastic Memorial Day Weekend rolls in.
Splashes: Take a look at our beautiful fountain on the corner of East Main and High Streets. The borough truck pulled up this morning to open it, and of course I ran outside to strike up a friendly conversation and to see how it was done. It was already uncovered and, in what was not one of my brightest moments, I chirped to one of the workers, “Do you have to put water in it now?! Hehehe?!!” You know how you understand that what you have spoken is stupid before you even finish the sentence? I ran back inside as soon as he answered, “Yes.” Ah, well. They can’t all be gems. The fountain rocks, though. Lots of photo ops.
Specials: Hope you can take a few minutes to visit our home page. We’ve added a Specials button at the top to let you know about our current offers. Be sure you check often; I’d like to change them up from month to month – or even a few times within the month.
Next, in the drop-down menu under “Inn” there’s a section called Things To Do to help you plan your trip to Lancaster County. It’s a work in progress, so you’ll see that changing also as we add to our list of things to see and places to go. If you have a favorite haunt not listed, let me know so I can add it to the planner.
Spectacular Events: Main StreetMount Joy has some fun planned for summer. Memorial Day weekend will feature a parade down Main Street at 2:00 and a Community Yard Sale. June brings our town’s 21st Annual Golf Outing, while in July you can look forward to the 13th annual Taste of Mount Joy Cruisin’ Cuisine. And after you’ve shopped and golfed and sampled and cruised, you can come back to your comfortable air-conditioned room at the Inn to relax or can take a dip in the pool in the back garden, or can just snooze on the balcony. Nice.
A couple more spectacular events I have to mention. Aimee and I were sitting on the side porch listening to strains of classic rock. “Love that,” she commented. “Which park is having a concert tonight?” Well, that was no park concert! We were being entertained by our own guests who were playing on the Balcony right above us! Joe and Monica Jo (aka Joe Squared) play Thursday nights at Da’s Pub in Blakeslee, PA. Lucky Blakeslee! If you’re around that area, drop in to see them. You won’t be disappointed. Monica surprised Joe with an overnight getaway to Olde Square Inn along with reservations for a Mystery Dinner at Bube’s Brewery for his 40th birthday. Awesome!
To close on an additional excellent note, our guest Lennie executed the perfect trifecta: 1.) booked the Suite along with a Birthday Celebration Indulgence, 2.) made reservations at the Catacombs for dinner, 3.) popped a marriage proposal to his long-time girlfriend Lisa, who, of course, said yes. Who wouldn’t say yes to a guy who can make plans like that? Only no one!
What is your personal trifecta? It’s time to get your vacation on and make reservations at Olde Square Inn for some time out during these upcoming glorious summer months. Not sure what to do? Check our Things to Do section or call me at 717-653-4525 and I’ll help point you in the right direction. Looking forward to meeting you soon.
