WUL Founder to be honored with Hometown Hero Award

Angelia Reed, founder of The Wrap Up, Lancaster (WUL) Project, is being honored by The Emerald Foundation at the June 24th game of the Lancaster Barnstormers, Lancaster’s baseball team, by throwing the first pitch of the game. She is receiving the Hometown Hero Award, as well! Congratulations, Angelia!

As a “thank you” to all the volunteers for the project, we are getting free tickets to the game!  How cool is that?

I’m so glad that WUL is being noticed by the community.  We don’t do it for the attention, but the publicity is good, and it will bring in new volunteers and donations as more people learn about it.

Go, Angelia, and go, ‘Stormers!

“Wrap Up” of Season 2

The Wrap Up, Lancaster Project finished Season 2 on April 8, 2016 with scarf bombings in both Reservoir Park in Lancaster, PA and at the Columbia Presbyterian Church in Columbia, PA.  We had a great year!!!

Angelia Reed, our fearless and enterprising leader, and I, along her mother and daughter, scarf bombed those places.  Angelia broadcasted both bombings on Periscope as I filmed it.  We love it if you watch them on Katch here below.

Erin Negley of LNP has a been a great cheerleader for the project, too.  She is a staff writer for our local newspaper, and wrote an awesome article detailing the second season.  I encourage you to read it, watch the videos, and there’s even a great pie chart of statistics.

Until next fall, come visit us the East Side Market in Musser Park in Lancaster, PA, starting Sunday, May 17, 2016.

Oh, and this is really important……there’s a store open for fundraising for the project. Like t-shirts and/or tote bags? We’ve got you covered.

So, here’s to looking forward to Season 3!

Wrap Up In the News

LancasterOnline has a great series of articles that were published yersterday’s paper about the The Wrap Up, Lancaster scarf-bombing that happened on Monday, November 30.  I unfortunately was not there, as I had a prior commitment and a back injury on top of that.  Erin Negley of LPN wrote up a great set of articles that were on the front page of Wednesday’s paper.

Now, as for the featured image at the top…..Angelia Reed, Wrap Up’s fearless leader any myself will be at the Lancaster East Side Market’s Holiday Arts Market promoting and raising money for The Wrap Up, Lancaster Project.  People have graciously donated handmade items for us to sell.  All proceeds go to the project.  Plus, get some Christmas shopping done, too!
