Hospice of Lancaster County is dedicated to providing care and comfort to help patients and families live better at end of life.
Labor Day's rain might wash out some holiday barbeque plans, but the annual Hospice of Lancaster County Auction will continue uninterrupted. All auctions for new and used items will be inside and protected from the rain.
Amish play a big part in the auction, preparing all the food, and provide auction items, including sheds and furniture.
The thousands of customers can taste traditional Amish-cooked food including barbequed chicken and glazed donuts. The winner of a new Harley Davidson and Ford Mustang will also be announced this afternoon.
