Arlington, Va.-based Pamela Marie Airshows is a private organization that offers fly-bys and aerial aerobatic performances at events along the east coast. Andrew McKenna, pilot and owner of Pamela Marie LLC, highlights one of the organization’s aircraft, the North American T-6 Texan, featured at this year’s Lancaster Airport Community Days, Aug. 22-23.
The T-6, a single-engine advanced trainer aircraft, was used to train pilots of the United States Army Air Forces, United States Navy and Royal Air Force during World War II and into the 1970s.
Urban Churn is a small-batch ice cream manufacturer that opened last summer in Midtown Harrisburg. Owner Adam Brackbill started the company to give city residents another option for ice cream. He uses traditional Amish churns to make his custom creations, which are sold to local brewpubs and restaurants, including The Garlic Poet Restaurant & Bar in Fairview Township. Urban Churn is sold at the Midtown Cinema, which is in the same building as Brackbill’s manufacturing operations. He hopes to expand his retail presence and establish other partnerships across Central Pennsylvania.
Visitors who attend the 2015 U.S. Women's Open at the Lancaster Country Club July 6-12 will find a special refreshment waiting for them at the clubhouse and at the 1761 Club, the venue created just for the championship event.
LCC executive chef Greg Myers and Matt Keasey, owner of Spring House Brewing Co., partnered to create 1761 Farmhouse Ale, a signature beer for this year's Women's Open. Keasey's recipe, based on a saison pale ale, incorporates the country club's famous lemonade in the mix.
Mike and Linda Shank have been operating Shank’s Strings in Elizabethtown since 1990. Mike is renowned on the East Coast as the “go-to guy” when it comes to fixing double basses for classical and jazz musicians alike. Students and professional musicians drive hundreds of miles to visit the Shanks, whether it’s for minor adjustments or major repairs. Some of their professional customers play for symphonies in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, New York, Baltimore and Miami. And their student customers — their “kids” — play at some of the top music conservatories in the country, including Eastman in Rochester, Curtis in Philadelphia and Peabody in Baltimore.
