My first post on the Charles F. Snyder Funeral Home blog was about our connection with the Lititz community, but now I want to give you a little insight into why I love this wonderful little town. Lititz is the place where I live, have chosen to raise my family and make our home. Although I’m not from here originally, Lititz has become my adopted hometown. Why do I love it so much? As a resident for the past twelve years, I have come to love this town and enjoy learning and experiencing more with each passing year.
My family feels the same way – whether it is a walk down the street, downtown for lunch, or a trip to the park, we enjoy the time together, the scenery, and spending time with our friends and neighbors. Lititz has offered us the opportunity to raise our family in a community dedicated to bringing neighbors and friends together for a multitude of events throughout the year. Whether we find ourselves at Second Friday, the Christmas tree lighting in the park, Fire and Ice Festival, or the upcoming July Fourth parade and celebration, it makes it even more fun to either attend with or come across several people we know.
Aside from merely participating in and enjoying events, being able to take part in and support the organizations and people who keep this beautiful town running gives us an opportunity to give back. For one, my husband serves on the Board of Trustees for Lititz Springs Park, which is one way our family can compensate for how heavily we use the park year after year. Recently, I had the honor of attending the swearing in of my own neighbor, Kerry Nye, as the new Chief of Police for the Borough of Lititz, and then we promptly put him to the task of manning the grill for our neighborhood block party! Chief Nye follows our retired Chief Bill Seace, and I am confident that he will continue to build up the department to best serve the community.
The Lititz I know and love is a place where our neighborhood blends with the downtown area, and friends, familiar faces and friendly shop owners make a visit more enjoyable. If you haven’t visited in a while, I invite you to take a stroll down Broad and Main, stop in one of the unique shops, and have lunch in one of the fabulous cafes…if I’m free, I’ll join you!
There you have it, a little bit about the place I call home.
