On Centre: Penns Valley | Annual Pink Day sprouts up at Wheatfield Nursery

June 1, 2014 

Pink isn’t usually a color associated with lumberjacks, but on Saturday they’ll make an exception for charity.

The fourth annual Pink Day Community Festival will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at Wheatfield Nursery on U.S. Route 322 in Centre Hall.

The event will support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Activities include lumberjack and woodworking demonstrations, food from Prospector’s Allegheny Ribs and Duff’s Kettle Korn, a gift basket raffle, Nittany Shop with Heart vendors, a gardening seminar at noon and more.

Admission and parking are free, and organizers urge guests to dress in pink.

Gift bags will be given to the first 25 visitors who purchase $25 or more in plants.

Melissa Cramer founded the event and organized it for the first three years.

She has also been a participating lumberjack in the shows.

This year, there are two new organizers, volunteer Cathy Walton said.

Cramer scheduled competitive lumberjack demonstrations by the Pennsylvania Professional Lumberjack Organization for Saturday’s event.

The lumberjacks will wear pink in support of breast cancer research.

“Several volunteers work really hard on this event each year,” Walton said.
