Celebrating 25 Years of the Best of Lancaster

Twenty-five years of anything deserves a party. In Lancaster County magazine’s case, the milestone relates to our Best of Lancaster readers’ survey. Add to that the fact that we survived quite a few changes since being purchased by Engle Printing & Publishing and are thriving. A celebration was definitely in order!

Nearly 300 “Best of” winners, friends, contributors and readers gathered at The Farm at Eagles Ridge on October 16 to help us celebrate. Mother Nature tried to dampen our spirits, but inevitably failed. Despite being confined to the barn – Shumaker PDT had installed a lounge in and around the corncrib – everyone seemed to have a good time.

We can’t thank the vendors who partnered with us enough. The setting was gorgeous, the food was fabulous, the beverages were perfection, the desserts sublime, the music memorable and the décor provided a very fashionable finishing touch. That said, our thanks go to the Herr family at The Farm at Eagles Ridge; Lisa Woods and Rod Shumaker at Shumaker PDT; Claudia Himes at Special Occasions; Jill Erb at Floral Designs of Mount Joy; Chuck Colson at Chuck Colson Jr. DJ Service; Dean Oberholtzer at the Belvedere Inn; Ray Hottenstein at the Greenfield Restaurant & Bar; Johnny Roberts at Isaac’s Famous Grilled Sandwiches; Lloyd Hess at Hess’s Barbecue, Karen Achtermann and Brian Nicklaus at Hammond Pretzel Bakery, Bill Scepansky at Smart Partners, Judy Nissley at Nissley Vineyards & Winery Estate, Andrea Nicklaus at Turkey Hill Dairy, Matt Keasey at Spring House Brewery and Martine Cajas at the House of Clarendon.
