I say this every time i post Reader Photos, but I really am so impressed with the photos we receive each week from readers and post in our photo galleries.
This week, the theme seems to be animals and children beating the heat – which luckily has passed us by this week.
This batch also includes my favorite reader photo ever. Check below to see it:
Lewisburg Area high school sweethearts Sarah and Kyle are married on May 18, 2013. In honor of being high school sweethearts the couple rented a school bus and traveled to their high school to get pictures at the school where they met! Photo by Sarah and Kyle Mumper, Lewisburg
“Bow, a Gordon Setter, takes a swim in Penns Creek on a hot summer day,” by Bruce Ferster, Lewisburg
“Sunrise over Wayne Kauffman’s hayfield,” by Danita Stoltzfus, Mount Pleasant Mills. Probably my favorite reader photo ever.
Yesterday at ConAgra a beautiful new statue of legendary Hector Boiardi was unveiled at ConAgra in Milton (the company that now makes the Chef Boyardee products).
\While the statue was a great tribute to the man, the way the statue was unveiled was simply – well – delicious.
The statue was hidden under a giant can of Spaghetti and Meatballs on wheels, hiding the statue inside the very product that made him famous.
Here’s a shot of that:
The can was wheeled away to reveal the man underneath, and in a touching tribute, his nephew, Paul Boiardi was the first person to walk up and examine the statue, looking up at a man he said was “very proud” of his products and the way Milton embraced him.
Everyone at the event was just thrilled to see the larger-than-lifesized Chef. It’s definitely an event I won’t forget.
